Consuming cannabis today is far different from consuming cannabis a mere ten years ago. Thanks to the newly legal recreational market, there are more ways than ever to get your THC fix, including oil cartridges, tinctures, and a soon-to-be-legal edible and cannabis-infused beverage sector. Having said that, most OG tokers will agree—there is nothing better than a good old-fashioned joint. This prompts the question; “What are the best cannabis rolling papers on the market?”
There is no real right answer; it’s all a matter of preference. Some people prefer rolling papers that look like cigarettes, while others simply like to puff on the best rolling papers in Canada, period. So let’s take a look at some of the marquee rolling papers on the market. You can then decide for yourself whether they are a puff or a hard pass.
What are the best cannabis rolling papers to learn on?
For those that are not familiar with rolling, the best way to start is on wood pulp rolling papers. These rolling papers have been around for centuries, during which time they have appeased both cannabis and tobacco smokers alike. Arguably, the best rolling papers made of wood pulp come courtesy of OCB, a brand that has been popular in Europe and South America. Many of the best rolling papers in Canada are made up of hemp. However, the wood pulp slim version of OCB papers presents itself as an easier alternative for novice rollers. These do burn a bit faster than hemp rolling paper, though. So if you’re looking to smoke for a while, you might want to look into something else.
Then, there are the Raw pre-rolled, natural unbleached cone joints. These won’t necessarily teach you how to be a better roller because the brand has already done half the job for you. Still, it could be valuable to gauge how much bud to put into a joint. As well as getting a little extra practice by rolling the other half of it.
If you still can’t roll a joint at this point, you might want to opt for some kind of manual joint-roller. Usually, these will only run you a few bucks. You can subsequently roll perfectly straight joints with a few swift maneuvers on a little contraption. I wouldn’t recommend doing this in public, however, as experts will surely poke fun. But, hey, to each is own.
What are the best cannabis rolling papers to burn slow?
Conversely, if you’re looking for a type of rolling paper that burns extra slow, you should look into some that are made of rice. One type in particular that I find appealing are the ELEMENTS 300 Ultra Thin Rice Rolling Papers. These should last you a long time. Especially as there are 300 in a pack, and the product burns slower than any hemp or wood pulp papers I’ve ever come across. They’re also hailed as chemical free and chlorine free. So if you feel guilty about smoking paper in general, at least there is some silver lining.
What are the best cannabis rolling papers for flavour?
In terms of flavour, there are a few options you can go here. Typically, people associate blunt wraps with tasty rolling papers, but that’s a skewed notion. One particular brand that has separated itself from its competitors are Juicy Jay’s flavored rolling papers. They have, arguably, the most versatile selection of flavours. This includes menthol, Green Trip, green apple, absinth (no thanks!), strawberry kiwi, watermelon, blueberry, banana, very cherry, raspberry, and grape, to name a few.
What are the best cannabis rolling papers for larger joints?
For larger joints, you’re probably going to want to opt for something with the “XL” size on the package. The most popular—and arguably, most effective—rolling papers are the Raw King Size Slim Organic Hemp rolling papers. These 100 percent vegan papers are ultra thin, made of hemp, and contain around 32 papers per pack. They are much bigger than the traditional joint, however, at around 110x44mm. If you’re looking to share a joint with a few friends, these are definitely the best rolling papers you can buy.
If you want rolling papers that look like cigarettes, however, getting a king-size rolling paper probably isn’t ideal. Raws also come in the 1 1/4 size, so they will be a little shorter than a joint. Nevertheless, perfect for those still keeping their weed usage on the low. Not that there is any real need to, at this point.
