Rolling Paper Benefits
Rolling papers have been a preferred cannabis-consumption method for decades. They offer some advantages over other options that explain their popularity:
- Easy to control the dose
Rolling Paper Health Drawbacks
Rolling papers have drawbacks compared to other options in light of consumer preferences and health. Rolling papers require combustion to consume cannabis flower. This means breathing in combusted fumes from burning paper. No matter what the rolling papers are made from smoking paper can irritate the lungs, cause mucus buildup, and promote coughing.
Types of Rolling Papers
- Hemp Rolling Papers – Hemp is naturally an excellent rolling paper option for health and the environment. They are made with 100% all-natural hemp fiber and other natural materials such as tree gum for a healthier, tasteless smoking experience.
- Wood Pulp – This is the traditional rolling paper class where the Zig-Zag brand has dominated for decades. They are a paper made from wood pulp and some contain additives to slow the burning rate. They are usually white but some are brown. Although they are the most popular rolling papers and cheaper, they offer a lower quality experience because burnt wood pulp affects the taste.
- Rice – Rice rolling papers are made from food-safe ingredients. They are slightly more expensive than wood-pulp papers but cost less than hemp.
- Colored & Flavored – These rolling papers are not as popular but come with sensationalized marketing and product. Colored rolling papers can be transparent or any color but are often flavored with orange, mint, or bubblegum. Consumers generally perceive these rolling papers as less healthy as we just don’t know what health affects the color and flavor additives have.
