If you aren’t a seasoned cannabis smoker, then you may be surprised to know that there is much more to it than the quality of the weed itself. Cannabis connoisseurs will be quick to tell you that every element is vital to the overall quality of the experience, and that includes everything from the bud itself to the papers you roll them in.
Rolling papers don’t seem like they could make too much of a difference when it comes to how much you enjoy a bud, but in fact, they can have a significant impact on a variety of factors. A poor rolling paper can cause unpleasant tastes, lead to a fit of coughing and burn quickly, meaning you spend more on smoking than you would with a better quality paper.
So, if you are sat there wondering whether you have been doing things wrong all these years, don’t worry – we have put together our favorite rolling papers for the perfect cannabis experience!
#1 Clear Rolling Papers
This one is an oldie, but a goodie that has been around for many years. Clear rolling papers are indeed nothing new – but they are pretty awesome!
Perhaps not typically found in the majority of ‘favorites’ lists for rolling papers; however, we love these as a fun and a pretty aesthetically pleasing throwback to the simpler smoking times.
Let’s face it, due to legalization there are more smoking products than most of us know what to do with, so sometimes it is great to reminisce about the good old days.
Almost every decent brand do a range of clear papers, and they are super affordable so great for those social smoke sessions. Easy to use, fun to use, and perfect for showcasing your prettiest buds!
#2 Shine 24K Gold Rolling Papers
Okay, by now everyone and their mother has probably heard of the Shine 24K gold papers, so we had to include them didn’t we? As far as luxury joints go – you can’t get much flashier than these!
Without a doubt a premium product, these 24 karat gold papers aren’t cheap, but they are pretty stunning, and indeed a show stopper for those get togethers where you want to show off!
Perhaps a little bit of a novelty pick from us, but one that offers a great quality smoke that looks and feels incredible!
#3 RAW Papers
Perhaps one of the most well-known and popular brands of rolling paper, RAW have been around for some time now, and have indeed become industry favorites!
Whether you are opting for classic or hemp papers, RAW offer unrefined and natural products that offer a large canvas to work with.
You can even get RAW papers without the crease to avoid them running like many other papers with a crease tend to do; easy to roll, a delight to smoke – and a notorious favorite.
#4 Elements Rice Papers
Taking the crown as one of the most environmentally conscious brands going, Elements offer something truly unique for those smokers who prefer a natural approach to cannabis smoking.
Made from rice and sugar, the Elements rice papers don’t produce ash, instead caramelizing as they burn, making them a delight to smoke and super eco-friendly.
Originating from Spain, these papers do tend to burn faster than your standard; however, they are incredibly well priced considering the quality and quantity you get in a pack. They also offer a real pure bud taste – perfect to save for those delicious high-end buds!
#5 Zig Zag Rolling Papers
Last but by no means least is the reliable Zig Zag brand; ultra-affordable, even more accessible, and with more range than ever before, these are the perfect option for those smokers who find themselves caught short without any papers!
Ever been out and about and realized you have no rolling papers left? The chances are that you will have called into a garage and been able to get your hands on some Zig Zag papers.
Back in the day, you would only have the option of small cigarette papers, but Zig Zag have now got a vast range offering everything from ultra-thin to blunt wraps, so the world is your oyster!
Offering a great taste and a lovely, easy-to-use structure, the French-born brand is an absolute favorite of ours.
