What Rolling Papers Are Made Of and Its Other Uses

Rolling papers are made from a variety of sources. Here are some definitions and descriptions, so that you can find the best paper suited to your needs. Such compositional considerations such as all-hemp, partially comprised of hemp, no hemp, bleached, unbleached, organic, non-organic, available size, gum composition, no gum, evenness of burn, all become common considerations for the informed connoisseur of the rolling paper market.

Hemp is one of the strongest plant fibers in the world. Hemp papers have gained a great deal of popularity over the years because of the “tree-free” nature of this product. They burn very smoothly and, in general, are a little heavier thus making them easier to roll tobacco, especially heavier or larger cuts.

Rice papers are made from rice plant fibres. They often burn very slowly allowing the smoker to savour the experience. Originating in Japan and China this type of paper has become popular throughout the world. However, often rice papers will still contain hemp fibres too.

Flax is a fiber taken from the Linum or linaria plant which is commonly used to make linen. Flax is becoming more popular as it creates in the paper blend a silkiness and smoothness that makes rolling a pleasure while imparting little or no unwanted additional taste to the smoke.

Clear Cellulose – When people think of cellulose, they are most likely to think of plastic wrap. However, natural cellophane is not made from plastic. Instead it is made predominantly from cotton or trees, by chemically modifying natural cellulose. Brazilian clear papers are made from wood cellulose mixed with Glycerin or Agar and burn harsher than standard hemp, flax or rice. Please note that some of the clear papers are made from a Asiatic Cotton Mallow and are completely natural. These burn smoother than the other clear papers. Glass, and Kingpin Clear Blunts are made from the cotton mallow. No matter which you choose, clear rolling paper are still a fun product!
