There are some things you can’t do without when it comes to weed. A lighter. Marijuana. A pipe. And, of course, rolling papers.
Papers come in many brands and varieties. And no two choices are exactly the same. The best things about rolling papers: A pack usually includes dozens of papers, so you shouldn’t run out for a while. And unlike pipes, there’s no cleaning.
Here are a few of the major brands:
ZigZags: This brand is a household name, even for non-smokers. ZigZags are made from standard wood pulp, and they lead the market.
Elements: These folks make some of the thinnest papers in the industry in several sizes. They’re made out of rice, and that makes for a more pleasant experience.
Raw: A relative newcomer to the market, these papers are very thin and provide one of the smoothest smokes available.
Bambu: This is another longtime player, and a big one. Their papers are also incredibly thin and they come in a wide variety of sizes, from regular to absolutely massive.
Smaller papers, obviously, make for smaller joints, but they’re also easier to roll. Several manufacturers make extra-large, blunt-size papers, especially Bambu and Raw.
Bambu’s largest paper was used to line the inside of a Cheech & Chong comedy album in the 1970s. Try making a J out of that!
Raw papers come in four sizes: single wide, 1¼ inch, 1½ inch, and king size slim. Bambu offers regular, big, extra, and double wide.
Using a rolling paper is simple. Lay it on a flat surface – a table, a countertop, a rolling tray – with the wet strip facing up and positioned away from your body. Place at least a gram of weed into the paper’s crease.
Now rub the opposing sides together until the pot is rolled into a tight cylinder shape. Lick the wet strip and seal. Twist off one end of the joint. If you like, you can add a roach to the other end of your cigarette or, better yet, roll it into the joint.
Good papers provide a clean, smooth way to enjoy marijuana, and they’re perfect for convenience. You can get them almost anywhere, and you can carry them wherever you go.
