7 Odd Tips For Rolling A Great Joint

While there are lots of pre-rolled joint brands available on the market, most core stoners would often prefer to roll their own joint. The reason behind the choice is the flexibility it offers and in so many ways, bragging rights of being ground solid in the game. 

For every stoner, knowing how to roll a crisp, clean joint by hand is somewhat of a rite of passage; a ritual if you call it so. However, gone are the days of simply rolling a fat spliff and lighting up. Rolling a Joint in 2020 is an art form, and in this article, I will be showing you a few tips on how to roll a great joint.

There’s more than one way to roll a joint!

Like an old cat in the game, I would introduce you to some of the popular joint frames and also list my 7 odd tips for rolling a great joint.

Type of Joints by Frame

  • The Classic Joint, a Timeless Piece: This joint piece is the most common. The frame is even, smooth and burns nicely. The technique for rolling the classic joint is fairly simple and straightforward. It doesn’t require many skills and can be built by even the most inexperienced stoner. 

Pro Tip: Be careful to pack the bud to the same width as your filter. This will help keep your smoke smooth and even. Avoid over-grinding the herb. It makes it too dense and limits airflow.

  • The Cone Joint: This is also one of the classics and makes for a feel-good joint. As its name implies, the joint is shaped like a cone. The end with the filter is narrow, with the joint being wider at the tip.

Pro Tip: To roll this joint, it is best to roll the paper first, keeping it tight over the filter and manipulating it with your other hand to give a cone finish. Once the paper is dry, pour your ground weed into it and pack accordingly.

  • Double Shotgun: This is by far my favorite when I am alone. Don’t mistake this joint for the smoke technique of blowing smoke in a loved one’s mouth. It is a rolling technique of having two classic joints in one. Rolling a double shotgun requires some expert skills and finesse. 

Pro Tip: Sorry there are no pro tips for this. If you can roll a fine classic joint, you can roll this one with a little practice.

Now we have cleared some of the joint frames you can build, let’s get on to the 7 odd tips for rolling the best joint you’ve ever made.

7 Odd Tips For Rolling A Great Joint

Step 1: Choose the Right Flower

The evolution of rolling a joint starts with choosing the right flower. Knowing your flower strains and what works under certain conditions can help you choose the right techniques for rolling the joint. For instance, Sativa strains are less dense and as such need not be ground too much to achieve bud consistency. Some strains are more pungent than others, and some others offer a much stronger effect. In all anyways, your satisfaction starts with your choice of flower strain, so choose right.

Step 2: Your Paper is as important as Well

There are plenty of paper types to choose from. There is the classic white or brown, pulp paper, rice paper, flavored paper and others in-between. Certain types are more health-conscious, and the others offer an improved flavor. Some burn lightly, others do not. So, depending on your preference, you have an array of paper types to choose from.

Knowing and picking the right paper for you can enhance your experience by half. 

Step 3: Grind Your Flower Right

Aside from choosing the right rolling papers, getting your flower to the right consistency is the third most important prep work you can do. You want your ground-up weed to be crumbly and free of stems so the final product burns evenly. To get there, drop a nug in your grinder and twist 10-12 times, or until you can twist without much resistance.

Notice some powdery stuff hanging out in the bottom chamber of your grinder? That’s kief and it’s loaded with THC. You can either sprinkle it on top of a packed bowl or add it back to your joint for additional potency.

Step 4: Always Use a Filter

While you don’t absolutely need a filter, it is important you always use one. The filter helps to create a barrier between your lips and the burning herb, and also help to keep bits of flower from slipping out into your mouth as you smoke. Remember: How thin or thick you roll your filter will determine how thin or thick your joint will be, so plan accordingly.

Step 5: Fill That Paper

The trick is to place your rolling paper on a tray, plate, magazine or any flat surface. This would allow for ample space to organize the weed on the rolling paper and to catch any excess weed that may drop off. Once set, drop some of that freshly ground herb along the creases of your paper. Leave enough room to place your filter at one end.

Step 6: Pinch and Roll

The secret to getting a tight and cylindrical joint is to grab the flower-filled paper by both ends, pinch the tops of the paper with your thumbs and forefingers, and rub your fingers together in an up-and-down motion. By doing so, you effectively push the flower into a tight little log the same width as the filter. Once you’re there, you’re ready to tuck the unglued side of the paper around the filter and roll. Don’t expect to get it right the first time as this part takes patience and finesse. 

Pro tip: Focus on getting the paper tight around the filter first. From there, the rest of the joint will follow.

Step 7: Lick, Tap and Twist

Once it’s all set, you lick the glue end and seal. Tap the filter against a hard surface to help the flower settle in or pack the flower in with a pencil, chopstick, or similar pointy object and finally twist the excess paper at the top of your joint to keep everything in place. 

For extra fineness, you can use scissors to trim both ends to meet your satisfaction.

Joint Rolling Troubleshooting Tips

  • If your joint gets loose halfway through rolling it, back up and start again with a tighter pinch around the filter.
  • If your joint burns unevenly, your flower maybe a little too chunky. Grind the flower a little more next time.
  • If you need to keep lighting it to get any smoke, the flower is too finely ground and preventing air from flowing through. Ease up with the grinder next time.

Difference Between Joints, Blunts, Bongs, Dabs, and Other Ways of Smoking Cannabis

Difference Between Joints, Blunts, Bongs, Dabs, and Other Ways of Smoking Cannabis 150 150 Longlong Zhao

What’s the Difference Between Joints, Blunts, Bongs, Dabs, and Other Ways of Smoking Cannabis?

Do you seek a healthier way to consume your cannabis?

Note that inhalation, of any sort, cannot be referred to as safe. Typically, cannabis is packed with toxins and carcinogens, which scientists warn may cause severe [long term] damage to users’ health.

However, some methods may be less toxic and, hence, less harmful than others.

Quickly, let’s discuss the different methods and smoking accessories. You’d all find some smoke-free cannabis dosage options you may find desirable:

Vaping Looks Safe

Common knowledge suggests inhaling smoke can be unhealthy for your lungs. For this, many smokers have resorted to vape as they believe it’s safe. But, this isn’t entirely correct.

Increasing evidence shows that vaping may present some side effects. One primary concern with vape is the inhalation of Vitamin E acetate, an additive present in most THC-rich vaping products.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)believes this chemical additive has been widely linked to several cases of vaping or e-cigarette-related lung injury and, in worse cases, death.

Vitamin E acetate, however, is only found in e-juice and not the cannabis herbs.

A 2016 research shows that vaping cannabis buds – not e-juice –is less damaging to the respiratory system than traditional smoking. So far, research on vaping remains too limited for any conclusive statements.

However, besides the impact on lung health, potency is also a debate. People who consume cannabis through vape reports more potent effects, even with less THC, than when smoked. By this, many vape users may find themselves more intoxicated with vaping than smoking. 

What About Bongs?

Do they filter out the harmful stuff?

A bit. Not enough to make it healthy.

Bongs deliver cooler and smoother hits – No direct heat as with paper-rolled cannabis. 

Noteworthily – however, although inhalation ‘feels’ less harsh, not to your lungs. 

Should I then Consider Joints and Blunts?

First, remember you’d still inhale smoke, whether with blunts or joints. However, it may be fair enough to call joints a lesser of the two evils. Since blunts are made with a hollowed-out cigarette, the rolling papers and the cigars are notably toxic.

Although tobacco is emptied, nitrosamines and other cancer-causing toxins remain in the cigar. Even, rolling papers produce smoke with remarkably toxic concentrations.

Next, size. Blunts come in larger sizes than joints and, hence, offer more pot per wrap. Typically, one blunt equal about six joints. 

It Should Be Dabbing!

They say dabbing promises a ‘cleaner high.’ Not so true.

Budder, or dabs, releases up to 80 percent more THC concentration than other weed products. However, being a relatively new concept, researches on its effects are still in their infancy. Experts advise that more info may be needed to state the true nature of dabbing cannabis and its adverse effects – if any.

However, reports from growing research think the use of high-THC-concentrated products may cause long-term mental disorders like psychosis. Again, THC misuse, which, too often, leads to addiction, and eventual drug dependency, is a critical concern with dosing high-THC, particularly among the millennials.

Also, without adequate experience in extraction and/or state of the art lab equipment, you may have a hard time [if ever] obtaining pure dabs.

A study reveals dabs may contain residual solvents and contaminants, which may cause cardiotoxicity and neurotoxicity. 

Besides, your respiratory system suffers from dabbing. Evidence shows some cases of vaping-related lung damage.

Some Other Methods

So far, it seems there are no safe ways around smoking cannabis. That’s what it is. However, there are several other options you may want to check out. Let’s quickly discuss them:

  • Edibles

Unlike with vaping and smoking, ingesting your cannabis product has no business with your lungs. The only issue is that edibles do not offer instantaneous effect, since it first goes through the digestive system before it enters the bloodstream.

The right side, however, is that the effect stays way longer than with inhalation. Again, edibles come in different dosage forms – from baked foods to gummies and candies. 

  • Sublingual

By sublingual administration, your CBD product – tincture, dissolvable tables, etc. – is placed beneath the tongue and held for about 60 seconds.

This method is adjudged faster than ingestion since the compounds are delivered through the sublingual gland directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system.

  • Topicals

Topicals are skin applications, including balms, creams, and lotions. They may help relieve inflammation and pain at targeted spots on the body.

  • Suppositories

While it may sound weird, shoving weed up your vagina or butt is a thing. There are many CD-infused suppositories on the market designed for several therapeutic reasons, including nausea relief or pain. Some are high in THC, for increased benefits. 

If You Must Smoke, Consider These Things…

Quit smoke’ is the healthiest advice there is for smokers. But if you wish to continue smoking – even with the known risks – here are helpful tips to always have handy: 

  • Don’t hold your smoke too long

The longer you hold in weed smoke, the higher tar consumed and the higher risk of lung damage. Holding your smoke for too long does your lungs more harm than good. 

  • Choose FDA-approved rollers

While rolling papers may all look natural, some contain toxic favors and chemicals. Buying your rolling papers, insist on FDA-approved products

  • Prefer glass pipes and bongs

Rubber bongs may be high in phthalates, BPA, and related harmful chemicals, which may cause severe health conditions like cancer. 

  • Keep your tools clean

Ensure your pipes, bongs, and even rolling papers are in good shape. Prevent your weed from any unhygienic surface contacts. 

  • Don’t pass your joints or share your mouthpiece

While it’s fair to share your stash, it’s not cool with bongs, pipes, and joints. Spit-spit contact that occurs when sharing these items may cause high exposure to infections.

Conclusion

There’s no such thing as a safe way to smoke weed. Regardless of your preferred dosage preference, any form of inhalation poses a danger to the lungs.

The safest way to consume cannabis is through an oral, topical, or sublingual application. These ways, you consume all cannabis has to offer, but without the lung-threatening smoke. 

But if you insist on puffs, vaporizers that favor flowers, and not concentrates, may be safer.

If you’re unsure which roller paper to begin using or improve your smoking experience, Moon Smoking offers a wide range of products, both for retailers and wholesale purchases. Feel free to discuss with us if you ever get lost in the options or for more inquiries. 

Machine Packed and Hand Packed Rolling Paper – Fact and Fiction

Machine Packed and Hand Packed Rolling Paper – Fact and Fiction 150 150 Longlong Zhao

Machine Packed and Hand Packed – Fact and Fiction

Where do you get your rolling paper?

Whichever way you want to look at it, the rolling paper affects the quality of the smoking experience. While many might chose to make light of this important aspect of the smoking culture, for some of the best smoke enthusiasts and connoisseurs, the choice of rolling papers, the credibility of the rolling paper manufacturer, and the process of production are key factors to consider when choosing a rolling paper brand.

The custom rolling papers making industry is continually evolving to capture the latest technology and the application of modern manufacturing techniques to create the perfect paper. These techniques are applied across a range of functions including manufacturing, packaging, handling, transportation, and storage.

Today, we shall be taking a cursory look at one aspect of the papermaking process that is quite important yet most often overlooked. We shall be looking into the process of making and packing rolling papers with a view to show the difference and suitability of machine packed rolling papers over traditional hand-packed rolling papers.

The Hand Packed Rolling Paper

So there you are, staring into the rolls of shelves at your local grocery store, trying to decide on which pack of rolling paper to take home and get your Kush lighted up. There are many to choose from, different types; some flavored, others plain and then there is the one that sits distinct, with bold letters “Hand Packed”, printed on the packaging. 

What’s the deal, you ask? Does this make for a better product? Also, if it does, does it get even better when lighted up?

Well, the answers to the above questions lie solely with preference. Yes! It all depends on your preference for a particular type of product. 

While some people have declared a preference for hand made rolling papers, they are not any different from machine-made papers. In fact, the hand made and packed rolling papers are known to be an unhygienic choice due to the grave amount of human interaction with the manufacturing process.

Some proponents of hand packing have opined that hand-packed rolling papers have a distinct flavor and edge that sets it above machine-packed papers however, recent research studies show different.

According to a recent scientific clinical study by a select industry research panel made up of packaging industry industrial scientists, research engineers, randomly selected consumers, packaging product development specialists, and numerous other types of visionaries, it was determined that hand packing a food product has virtually no effect on its flavor. Instead, with handmade and packed papers, you run the risk of contamination with human hair, saliva, and in some instances harmful bacteria. Hand made and packed paper are also very expensive and do not offer product consistency.

Machine Made and Packed over Hand Made and Packed

Because of the inherent risks and poor economics associated with hand made and packed rolling papers, many rolling paper making companies are shifting their production to fully automatic. 

For us at Moon Smoking, we value your health and because we always strive to provide a great smoking experience for you, we have moved our custom rolling paper factory to fully automatic. All our processes have limited human interactions and our custom rolling papers are made to the highest possible standards in the industry.

Some of the benefits of Machine packed papers over hand-packed papers include;

Elimination of the human factor:

Machine packing eliminates all associated risks of running a solely manual process. The risks of willful contamination of products and issues relating to human errors are eliminated leaving an almost perfect product you can trust.

A more hygienic option:

Machine packed custom rolling papers are a more hygienic option. Because we understand the nature of man and his inherent excesses, we are conscious of how we allow human interaction with your rolling paper. Cases of unhygienic handling or contamination are totally eliminated in a fully automatic process.

Difference between Hemp and Marijuana and Its Extracts

Difference between Hemp and Marijuana and Its Extracts 150 150 Longlong Zhao

Difference between Hemp and Marijuana and Its Extracts

Hemp, marijuana, and cannabis are widely used interchangeably. Although these terms are interrelated, they mean different things –culturally and botanically. 

If you’ve thought marijuana and hemp mean the same thing, read on to find out their differences. 

This article explains the difference between these plants and their relationship with cannabis. 

Without much ado, 

What is Hemp? 

Hemp is a cannabis specie. The plant is remarkable for its low THC concentration. THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is a naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant, responsible for the ‘high’ associated with cannabis usage. 

So, although THC has as many therapeutic potentials as CBD, the latter [CBD] is widely more tolerated, particularly in the medical and legal niches.

In the US, for instance, hemp is considered safe and thus legal at the federal level. Although the plant is not recognized by the FDA as a prescription drug treatment for any health condition – except Epidiolex, a CBD-infused drug for epilepsy – it is widely sold as a supplement. 

Noteworthily, the Agriculture Improvement Act, (known as the Farm Bill), defines hemp as products with less than .3 percent THC level. Any product with over the .3 percent benchmark is considered marijuana. 

Besides medicals, the hemp plant has also been resourceful in the production of biofuels and textiles. 

Even more, the seeds are used to produce hemp seed oil or eaten. The flowers are also exploited and extract infused into cosmetics and edible products.

What is Marijuana? 

Hemp’s cousin.

Both hemp and marijuana are plants from the cannabis family, scientifically referred to as Cannabis Sativa L.

While the hemp plant is high in CBD and low in THC, its marijuana relative is the reverse –  CBD-rich, THC-low.  

Marijuana’s high THC concentration makes the plant mainly used for recreational purposes.

While CBD-rich hemp is becoming more popular for its safe and widely-tolerated nature, the intoxicating THC-packed marijuana has tall legal walls. In the US, for instance, the herb is considered illegal federally.

However, some US states have decriminalized the use of marijuana and established regulations for its production and distribution – both for medical and recreational use among adults.

The marijuana plant is processed into several forms. The most common among recreational users is the cured flower. As with the hemp plant, marijuana can be extracted and sold for infusion into topicals, edibles, tinctures, etc. 

What About Cannabis?

Cannabis is a common name for members of the cannabaceae family. This large family consists of about 170 species – including hemp and marijuana. Cannabis is grouped into three major subfamilies, including Cannabis Indica, Cannabis Sativa, and Cannabis Ruderalis

So, although the hemp and marijuana plants have their differences, they are both cannabis. 

Let’s quickly discuss, a little in-depth, four primary differences between Marijuana and Hemp Plants

Differences Between Marijuana and Hemp

Hemp and marijuana are similar. From looks, knowing their differences can be almost impossible.

But with the differences in application and benefits, as well as legal regulations, you sure want to clear out your confusion. 

Here are the key differences between hemp and marijuana you should know.

Composition

One key distinguishing factor between marijuana and hemp is the different composition.

Both marijuana and hemp contain CBD and THC. However, while hemp is CBD-dominant, marijuana contains more THC. 

While THC content may reach 30 percent in marijuana, it does not exceed 0.3 percent, by dry weight, in legal hemp. 

Legality

With different THC levels, marijuana and THC have their individual regulations.

Hemp, which was once regarded illegal and placed under the Controlled Substance Act of 1970, is now legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. The bill legalizes hemp and its products with THC levels not exceeding .3 percent. 

While some state laws allow marijuana for recreational and/or medical purposes, it remains federally illegal. 

Cultivation

Marijuana and hemp are grown for different reasons; hence they are grown under unique conditions. 

Marijuana plants are carefully bred under controlled circumstances to boost the plant’s components and produce female plants with flowers. 

For best practice, factors include lighting, temperature, and humidity must be well regulated. Also, marijuana demands close attention at every stage.

Hemp, on the other end, is grown primarily to maximize quantity – yield and size. For this, hemp plants are preferably grown outdoors and do not necessarily need all the regulations, and attention marijuana seeks. 

Application

Due to their unique compositions, both plants have their unique uses. 

While marijuana is widely known for its recreational uses, research reveals several potential therapeutic applications.

However, hemp may have more widespread applications than marijuana. Among the lot, here are common areas hemp can be used:

  • Food productions, including cooking oil, hemp-seed oil, and related products
  • Industrial purposes – or products such as textile, building materials, paper and plastic
  • Medicals – CBD-infused tinctures, topicals, and capsules are increasingly popular for therapeutic applications. 

Hemp- Vs. Marijuana-Based CBD 

Here’s another confusing subject.

Given their different nature and components, expectedly, hemp-based CBD should be distinct from a marijuana-based variant. But that isn’t the case.

Whether from marijuana or hemp, CBD’s molecule, as well as its pharmacology, are precisely the same. So regardless of its source, CBD is CBD.

However, concerning legality, CBD is not CBD. 

Confused? Don’t be!

Here it is – while CBD is the same regardless of source, the Farm Bill stated, categorically, that only “hemp-derived” products with less than .3 percent THC is federally legal. 

This means marijuana-based CBD, whether it contains more or less than .3 percent THC remains federally illegal.

Last Notes – Hemp Vs. Marijuana 

While it can be somewhat tricky differentiating hemp from marijuana, hopefully, the explanations in the guide detail the main differences.

The terms marijuana and hemp are widely misapplied. Knowing which is what will help us understand what exactly we’re dealing with, particularly as to avoid both health and legal complications.

Rolling Papers by Sizes and the Cut Corners

Rolling Papers by Sizes and the Cut Corners 150 150 Longlong Zhao

Rolling Papers by Sizes and the Cut Corners

When we consider what contributes to a wonderful smoking experience, we often look to the strain and quality of the herb, very few think the rolling paper. 

Even when the variety and quality of the herb might seem right, the rolling paper can make a difference. 

The Ideal Rolling Paper

The rolling paper is used for a variety of smoking. While some are great for marijuana, others are better for tobacco. Pinpointing the ideal rolling paper can become confusing as personal preference, expertise, and overall satisfaction are usually subjective. However, industry data points to the Flax rolling paper as the most common rolling paper for Roll Your Own (RYO) smoke enthusiasts. The hemp comes a close second.

Grading Rolling Papers

Rolling papers are graded along the lines of the materials used in making the paper, the paper cut, and sizes. In a previous article, we talked about the various types of rolling papers by the material used to make them. In that article, we examined the benefits and disadvantages of each kind of rolling paper. 

Today, we are taking a step further to look at rolling papers from the perspective of sizes and would also touch on cut corners. Each paper size fulfills a need, and it is important to know which type is best for you.

Rolling Paper Sizes

Several sizes of rolling papers exist across categories; standard, kingsize, and RAW. Several brands also have unique features for their rolling papers. Below are some of the most common sizes of rolling paper for your pleasure.

1 ¼ Rolling Papers

These are the standard rolling papers you would find in stores around you. They are the most common choice for smokers worldwide. The term “1 ¼” refers to the width of the paper. Every 1 ¼ inch rolling paper is precisely 1 and 1/4 inch wide, but the length can vary slightly depending on the brand. The length is usually in the range of 78 mm – 84 mm; it only differs so slightly according to the brand. 

Single Wide Rolling Papers

The single wide rolling papers are also widespread, although not like the 1 ¼ rolling papers. While they may vary in length depending on the brand, they are always 1 inch wide. Typically these papers are shorter with length ranging from 68mm – 70mm. 

1 ½ Rolling Papers

Smokers who like thicker blunts find the 1 ½ an appropriate size for extra packing. This paper is handy for packing more smoking herb, giving a thicker pre-rolls that can last much longer than the average. Typically they are the same length as a 1 ¼ paper and range from 78mm – 84mm.

Double Wide Rolling Papers

As the name implies, the double-wide rolling papers are papers double the width. These papers, irrespective of the type, are two inches wide. They come in the same length as the others; however, they are often difficult to find. The rolling paper is not as accessible as the other categories mentioned above.

For customers who fancy the double-wide, you can rely on high-end manufacturers like us to get you the best quality always. 

84mm Rolling Papers

84mm papers live up to their name as it refers to the fixed length of the paper. At precisely 84mm in length and 1 ¼ inch in width, the rolling paper is almost perfection. The paper size is quite popular as virtually every brand creates this size of paper and often marks it as a 1 ¼. Most brands will indicate when they use an 84 mm paper, so be sure to check to be sure that you’re getting precisely what you need. 

King Size Rolling Papers

The King-Size rolling paper is arguably the biggest size on the market, and many brands produce it. The size of the paper is popular and prestigious. Comparably, the King-Size is longer than the standard by more than 35mm. It ranges between 109mm – 110mm in length, adding a lot of burn time to the smoke. They are slightly wider than most other papers and have a width range of 55mm – 60mm. 

King Size Slim Rolling Papers

This paper type is a hybrid of other varieties. The King Size Slim combines the length of a King Size with the width of a 1 ¼ paper, giving the experienced roller the perfect amount of paper roll for any shape while still maintaining the longer burn time associated with the King Size. These paper rolls are usually for the more experienced user as they are known to be the most challenging paper to roll. Many less experienced users have trouble with King Size Slim Papers because of the slightly increased dexterity required to roll the paper to an accurate angle and crutch size. 

Cut Corner Rolling Papers

Cut corner rolling paper refers to papers with one jagged edge. The idea behind this type of paper came to light in the 1800s. It was to enable individuals to identify the right face of the paper under low light or for those with some form of sight deficiency. The cut corners were made to help blind people distinguish the glued side from the other and also with “tucking.”

Cut corner paper gives a more elegant taper and an excellent looking roll every time. It is also a more natural choice for less experienced rollers.

Today, cut corner papers have taken on more robust benefits with automatic rollers. The paper is ideal for use with automatic rollers as they latch and are gripped better.

On a Roll – The Best of Rolling Papers

In 1660, the first documented rolling papers were produced in France. This was the start of what was to become one of the world’s most popular rolling paper brands.

Originally made from wood pulp, the rolling paper has witnessed a subtle evolution: an expansion of the range of source materials to include materials such as hemp, flax, rice paper, and a combination of one or more of these materials.

In this article, we will explore the evolution of the rolling paper; discuss each type of rolling paper, and the statistics backing some of the most popular choice papers by users.

The Evolution of the Rolling Paper

Over the years, the rolling paper has adapted to meet growing demand. Much of the innovation applied to the package and presentation. In contrast, the rolling paper itself has only benefitted from simple changes in production processes, and the introduction of small product features, such as cut corners and flavoring.

While these changes might be small, they have had a significant impact on the value that today’s range of rolling paper offers the customer. More than ever, more people are embracing the idea of rolling their smoke, and that has more to do with the value that the modern rolling paper presents than preference.

With smoking being a growing pleasure amongst a vast majority of people, manufacturers of rolling papers continue to innovate to ensure that each smoke is perfect for every client.

The Different Types of Rolling Paper

An excellent rolling paper improves the quality of the smoking experience, and there are several types of rolling papers available to meet every smoker’s needs. There is a choice of wood, rice, hemp, or other fibers based rolling paper. 

Factors that determine the users’ choice include taste, smoking speed, rolling skills, burn rate, etc.

Classic Paper Pulp:

Wood pulp rolling papers, commonly known as Paper pulp, are the most popular types of rolling papers. They have been around for more than a century and are the staple for traditional smokers. This rolling paper is made from wood or paper pulp, and it is credited to having the most stable burn rate.

Rice Paper:

The rice rolling papers are made from processed and pressed rice. This rolling paper is smooth, thin, and can be unusually slippery. This one is for the PROS and is an excellent option if you roll your own smoke.

The rice roll paper is considered a healthy choice. It burns slow and doesn’t leave an external aftertaste. Some variants are a perfect blend with Flax, and they produce an even more desirable experience for the average smoker.

However, it can be pretty vulnerable in certain conditions, particularly damp environment. Because the rolling paper is light and thin, it can get wet or even soggy quickly in a wet climate. 

Flax:

Like rice-based rolling paper with a slightly added thickness, the Flax roll paper is considered an excellent alternative to rice papers with analog characteristics.

It has the same fresh feel, slow burn rate, healthy, and doesn’t leave an aftertaste.

White/Brown Flavored Rolling paper:

These types of rolling papers are cool. They give off an aromatic fragrance when they burn, are slow to burn, and are the favorite of many people.

They are often classified as the unnatural grades of rolling papers as they contain chemicals that slow down the burn rate, stabilize the paper itself, its smoke, and its ash. The white rolling papers do contain chlorine or calcium carbonate, and other additives that can be harmful to health.

The good news, however, is that many of these rolling papers from reputable brands are now being made without chemical treatments or materials that improve combustion, reducing the possible harm and aftertaste of your smoke.

Hemp Rolling Paper:

The hemp rolling paper is arguably the most innovative expression of rolling papers in the last decade. Made from hemp fiber, the rolling paper is adjudged the best in class for conservation. The color is light brown as bleaching is strongly discouraged by most cannabis users; the papers are thicker and rougher and provide a good grip when rolling. Hemp rolling paper has an average burn rate and goes out less often than rice papers. Joints made with hemp papers might take on a delicate aftertaste that won’t spoil the aroma of the burning herb they wrap.

Novelty Papers:

You would find these papers in various crazy colors, flavors, or even transparent ones without added flavor made from cellulose. They are beautiful to look at and experiment with, but you should only use them sparingly to reduce the number of dangerous substances you inhale. 

Tobacco smoker the best choice in our opinion

You often discover the best rolling paper for you through time via the culmination of countless smoking experiments and experiences. 

But if we are to decide, we would consider factors such as burn rate, texture, the stability of the paper, aftertaste, and health value. 

Considering the above factors, the obvious choice is the Flax rolling paper. The Flax rolling paper is an excellent choice for RYO enthusiasts. The rolling paper offers the traditional sophistication of the rice paper with a more balanced output. It is made from Flax fiber and is an all-natural option for everyone; newbie or experienced smoker. 

In a close second is the Rice rolling paper for RYO enthusiasts. This rolling paper has remained faithful to its calling to offer premium satisfaction from the early days of rolling smoke. While this rolling paper might not be ideal for newbies, experienced hands find it a comfortable choice for its low burn rate and smooth feel with no aftertaste.

The others are great, but in our opinion, they do not meet all the requirements for an excellent rolling paper.

Cannabis smoker best option in our opinion

For most cannabis smokers, health, and the quality of the paper are the most prominent factors. The hemp rolling paper is arguably the most innovative expression of rolling papers in the last decade. It is the best in its class for conservation and considerably the ultimate choice for most cannabis users. Made from natural hemp fiber, the hemp rolling paper meets all the criteria if you like to roll your own smoke.

Wrap up

Wood pulp is the most common material for rolling papers as most cigarettes are rolled in this material. However, the healthier and generally better options such as Flax, rice, and hemp are making good inroads into the commercial market. Hemp has gained traction over the past few years and is attracting more patrons from the smoking community.
