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.
