So you enjoy rolling joints and feeling pretty good about it, right? Or, perhaps you are thinking of making the move from packing bowls to rolling joints, but some sticky questions remain: What is the right paper for you? Is there even a difference between them? Could some be better than others? BDDbrands carries a variety of papers and there are no wrong or short answers, so let’s dive in!

Some backstory:

Despite what you may have been told, rolling papers haven't been around all that long, first appearing on the scene in Alcoy, Spain, circa 1764 during Napoleon’s time. Before that, cigars and cigarillos were the norm, forcing folks with fewer means to roll up butts and roaches in pages out of books and newspapers – yikes! After its invention, early iterations of rolling papers back then were made primarily with rice and, you guessed it, hemp!

Hemp Rolling Papers

Hemp, as you probably know, has been around for ages and used in everything from rope and clothes to sails for ships and, of course, rolling papers. Truly a classic, a modern example would have to be Afghan Hemp Papers: sourced entirely from the sub-arctic mountain climate zones of Afghanistan, these smooth-burning papers are made only with the best bast from dried hemp stems, the part of of the plant with the most desirable fibers. With zero nicotine, Afghan Hemp Rolling Papers are an excellent choice for a straightforward smoking sesh.

 Non-Hemp Alternatives

Also with 0% nicotine, CAMO wraps contain no CBD and come in 11 unique and delicious flavors like Guava, Mango, Russian Cream, Honey, and more.
