As the leading manufacture of custom filter tips here in the US, the one question we receive quite frequently is our preferred rolling papers. I believe there are several companies bringing a unique style of paper to the market that create a more enjoyable
smoking experience. If you have the intention of starting a pre-roll company or you are just an avid cannabis connoisseur knowing which rolling papers to roll with is an important part in the art of rolling.
We've created a list of 5 of our favorite rolling papers & the reasons we enjoy them:
Consuming cannabis is entirely relative to the users individual preferences. For us here at Biokemp enjoying the flavor profile of the flower we consume is at the top of our priority list. Elements original rice papers bring a unique experience to the market. These rolling papers have the least amount of taste which allows you to fully soak in whatever terpenes the flower you are consuming contains. A lot of rollers introducing sku's like hash holes
to the market tend to go with this route of rolling paper due to the accessibility & quality of the product. According to element "Elements are an incredibly clean and thin rolling paper, and they are made from pure rice. Elements contain NO chemicals, NO pulp, and NO hemp. Elements are designed to maintain the smoothest burn possible, and they rarely run (burn unevenly)."
Now, these guys are legends & have been involved in the industry for quite sometime. OCB's product in my opinion is phenomenal for people who enjoy consuming cannabis and tobacco at the same time. Better known as a "Spliff". The paper is a tad bit thicker than that of elements or other rice papers but surprisingly enough it does not take away from the flavor of your cannabis. OCB's burn quite slow which is another thing to know when bringing a pre-roll to market. The slower the burn the better for the consumer.
Smoking papers is a very popular brand in Europe. These papers originated in Spain and have been making their move into the states slowly. I had the opportunity to meet the head of brand development sometime ago at the champs tradeshow in Orlando. I was extremely impressed with the quality of this companies papers & the array of different sku's they have readily available. I do enjoy how thin this companies papers are & how easy they are to roll.
Zig Zags, were the first rolling papers I ever learned how to roll up with & I will say I still do purchase these papers in large volume. One of the things that makes the experience of rolling with zig zags so great especially for beginners is how effective their glue that bonds the joint is. According to Zig Zag "All Zig-Zag papers have a thin glue line to provide a perfect seal – every time. Derived from the sap of the African acacia tree, the natural properties of gum Arabic provide a consistent seal without impacting the taste of your smoke. "This makes the whole process of learning to roll quite easy. Working with ineffective glues can be a hard curve to get over for people just learning to roll. The last thing you want is to have a nice pearl that does not hold up.
I recently found out about this companies rolling papers & honestly I am quite impressed. They seem to be gaining a lot of traction in the northern states. Especially by people who like to roll "doobies" without any filter tips in the roll. These papers are longer in length allowing you pack these bad boys thick like a brothers broad leaf pearl or backwood. I've seen quite a lot of people actually peal the cigar glue off these papers and roll them up without the glue which is tricky in my opinion. These papers are known for being vegan & GMO free.
