Rolling Papers Cannabis rolling papers are small sheets of paper that are used to roll cannabis joints. They are usually made from a thin type of paper such as rice paper or hemp paper. Rolling papers come in a variety of sizes, but the most common size is 1¼ inches wide by 2¼ inches long. The History of Rolling Papers The use of rolling papers for cannabis joints dates back to the early 1800s. The first rolling papers were made in Spain and were made of tobacco leaves. The Spanish soon began exporting their rolling papers to other countries, and by the mid-1800s, rolling papers were being made in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The first hemp rolling papers were made in the early 1900s. Hemp is a type of cannabis plant that is similar to marijuana, but it contains less than 1% of the psychoactive compound THC. Hemp rolling papers quickly became popular because they were less likely to cause the smoker to cough than tobacco rolling papers. Today, there are many different brands of cannabis rolling papers available on the market. Some of the most popular brands include Raw, Elements, and Zig-Zag. Rolling papers are also available in a variety of different colors and patterns. Cannabis rolling papers are an essential part of the cannabis smoking experience. They provide a clean and easy way to roll joints, and they help to prevent the cannabis from sticking to the smoker’s fingers. Rolling papers also allow the smoker to control the amount of cannabis that is being smoked. If you are new to rolling joints, there are a few things you should know. First, it is important to start with a clean sheet of rolling paper. You can either lick the adhesive strip on the paper, or use a small amount of water to wet the strip.
