Joints are one of the oldest ways to smoke weed. Before bongs and vapes, people would consume cannabis through a wooden pipe or a hand-rolled joint. Thousands of years later and we’re still using this technique for a very good reason: it works! Although you can technically roll a joint using all kinds of paper, some work far better—and are much healthier—than others. And that’s what we’re here for today, to give you a few good recommendations for your next rolling paper purchase. Let’s dive into the list of the 20 best-selling rolling papers on Zamnesia and Zativo!
This is probably the most iconic rolling paper pack in the world. It contains RAW’s classic unrefined king size papers, as well as their unrefined tips. The tips aren’t pre-rolled nor perforated, giving you complete freedom on how you make it. This pack also comes with an elastic band, keeping everything nice and neat.
These are the same papers as the above, only this pack comes with 32 leaves of paper and no filter tips. These are still the same unrefined, natural, and vegan papers for those who feel the lighter weight and smaller size adds to the experience. Or simply for those who don’t need filter tips.
If you haven’t tried Juicy Jay’s, you’re really missing out. They have one of the largest arrays of flavours in the industry. All the way from “Bubblegum” to “Jamaican Rum”, they have a flavour for you. These won’t be your everyday choice of papers because you probably also want to taste your weed, but they can sure spice things up every once in a while.
We obviously could not go without mentioning our very own creation. These are fantastic, extra-thin, white, king-size papers. They are sure to burn slowly and evenly for a better smoking experience. If you’re looking for a new set of go-to papers, make sure you get some of ours with your next order.
With over 125 years of experience in the market, this Spanish brand sure knows how to make a great paper. Smoking’s DeLuxe king size papers are ultra-thin and very slow-burning, which you’re bound to love. Their watermark is one of the best in the industry, so that your joint always burns evenly up until the end. As long as you respect the joint, the paper will respect the burn.
You’ve probably seen these papers featured on your favourite Instagram cannabis page. They are very popular due to the aesthetic they give joints. These aren’t necessarily the best papers in terms of flavour or overall smoking experience, but they look super cool. Made from plant cellulose, these are called “glass papers” because they are 100% see-through. It’s super fun to watch your weed burn as you toke on it.
With over a century of experience in the market, it wouldn’t be right to assume Smoking would just have one pack featured on our list. The Smoking Gold collection also deserves its place here for the brilliant paper it is. It’s super thin, so you will taste less paper while smoking your favourite strain—because the best paper is that which you don’t notice you’re smoking.
Seeing as we’re mentioning Smoking’s ultra-thin papers, we have to mention the slow-burning ones too. Smoking Blue papers are specifically designed to help your joint last longer. Too many times do we smoke a joint with friends, only to get distracted by conversation and waste a good couple centimetres of weed. With these papers, the joint will just put itself out instead. It might be annoying if you have to keep relighting it, but it’s worth it for the weed you’ll save.
With the recent organic lifestyle many stoners follow, Smoking released a Brown version of their papers. These aren’t painted brown for the sake of looks; they are really chlorine-free and unbleached in order to achieve the cleanest and purest smoke. If you haven’t tested out this series of papers, you really need to try them. Flavour is definitely a major plus with them.
As if the name wasn’t clear enough, these papers are for those wanting to smoke the purest and most natural joints. At the end of the day, most papers are still made from wood pulp, and a lot of people don’t like that. If you want to smoke weed rolled-up in weed, hemp papers are the way to go. These are unbleached, chlorine-free papers made from hemp fibre.
Another great creation by Smoking, these Master papers are made for the pro-rollers. They are made just like their normal papers, but are cut thinner. This means that once you have your joint rolled, you’ll be smoking less paper. This will give you longer but thinner joints that will only allow a single layer of paper when you roll. Just don’t buy these if you’re an amateur roller—it won’t be easy to master.
These are Smoking’s most ecological and environmentally friendly papers. They are also made from hemp, but the awesome twist is that the hemp is grown without any pesticides or herbicides. The gum is 100% vegetable with no colouring or additives, and the paper is obviously unbleached, retaining a more natural tone of beige.
For those who don’t use tips, we also sell our papers without any. So, if you’re a fan of the classic American doobie, this pack will surely satisfy your stoner needs. Our 32 leaves are extra-thin with a neutral flavour. Just perfect for your next spliff!
As if RAW papers weren’t already of a high enough quality, they also released an organic hemp edition. These are made from unrefined and organic hemp with natural hemp gum. If you want a pure, natural, and clean smoke, these papers are your herb’s best friend. Just make sure you don’t over-lick the glue. With natural gum, you only need to moisten it ever so slightly, otherwise you’ll be licking the glue away.
These are amongst the most natural papers you can smoke. This is because they are made from rice instead of wood. This makes it possible to maintain white-coloured paper without any chemicals. They are ultra-thin and slow-burning, providing you with a satisfying smoke session every single time.
Even though these hemp papers aren’t guaranteed organic, they’re still a better option than wood-based papers. Smoking has developed a wide array of papers in their decades of experience, and there is a reason behind each product. It’s up to you to try them all and figure out which is the best option for you!
If you include a filter tip in every single joint you roll, then this pack is bound to be your next favourite. Sure, it’s nice to be able to customise your tip, but 99% of the times we roll, a prerolled tip works just fine. Although not every joint will be the same size, it’s super easy to either tighten or stretch a tip. Countless times have we had an open paper with weed in our hands, only to realise we’re missing a tip. Now, you can make sure that never happens again.
Are you constantly finding that a single joint isn’t enough anymore? If that’s the case, then it might be time to get a rolling paper roll. If you love RAW papers, now you can get 3 metres of straight goodness from them. This is also a slightly wider paper, so you can roll true torpedoes and never regret the size of your jay ever again.
These papers from Irie are made from hemp, and are some of the thinnest papers we’ve ever tried. They are so thin you’ll almost think they’re transparent. Try burning a single paper from them and see the ash it leaves behind. It’s almost nonexistent. This pack contains 64 papers, which is double what most brands offer. Even though it’s slightly more expensive, it’s worth the trouble of having to buy papers more often. If you’re a hardcore stoner, these are the papers for you.
Last, but definitely not least comes a roll of OCB paper. This is a 4-metre roll of ultra-thin pure flax paper. Make sure you’re never out of papers with an OCB roll. This is a great option to have stashed at home in case of an emergency, or when you use the last paper from your pack at 3am and still want to smoke more bud.
