Rolling papers are used to roll cannabis cigarettes, also known as ‘joints’. Learn How to Roll a Joint

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your rolling papers.

  • Since the rolling paper will burn as the cannabis burns you will also be inhaling smoke from the paper. So it is important that the paper (and the glue that holds the joint together) is non-toxic.

  • Thinner paper is better because there is less of it to burn, however super thin rolling paper makes it more difficult for beginners to roll a joint without ripping the paper.

  • Stay away from bleached, coloured and scented rolling papers. The dyes and chemicals used are just another ingredient that you will be breathing in … increasing your risk of adverse reactions and lung irritation.

  • The best rolling papers are made from hemp, flax or rice straw.

  • Size matters! There are various sizes of rolling papers to choose from. Just remember that the bigger the rolling paper the more ground cannabis you will require.

  • For best results be sure that all the small stems are removed and your cannabis is evenly ground up, but not powdered. How To Grind Cannabis
