Rolling paper sizes, Which is right for me?
So, You're confused about what rolling papers to choose. This is understandable, as there seems to be more than a million different types. From kingsize to flavoured to Rolls and cones, it's difficult to find the right paper for the right situation.
Rolling papers generally come in different widths and lengths. The most common being regular, which is the size of a normal roll your own cigarette. Then there comes 1 1/4 and 1 1/2, these are generally the same length as regular papers but have an extra quarter or half's worth of width. These are generally used by people who enjoy sharing a roll up of their favourite smoking blend with a friend.
Then comes the kingsize papers, these are further broken down into kingsize and kingsize slim which often causes confusion. Regular kingsize are equivalent to about 1 1/3 regular papers and are often as thick as a 1 1/2, whereas kingsize slim are about 1 1/2 times as long as a regular paper but about as wide as a 1 1/4. Kingsize and Kingsize slim papers are perfect for when you want to share a roll up between a few people, or maybe at a party. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, to smoke all to yourself!
Then comes the Rips, these come in rolls which you can pull to any length you desire, allowing you to make a roll up for any situation. These generally come in slim and wide which are equivalent to 1 1/2 and 1 1/4 and they come in varying different weights.
The weight of the paper is another factor to take into consideration when trying to find the perfect rolling paper. The thickness of the paper determines the way that the roll up will burn, but also how much paper you will be inhaling. Thick papers tend to burn freely and stay lit whilst thin papers allow more air to flow through the roll up, making it burn slower and extinguish easier.
Rolling Paper brands
To complicate things even further, different brands offer other unique selling points to their rolling papers, whether it be flavouring, the material they are made from or some other quirky feature like a completely see through paper such as Aleda Each brand has their own selling point. There are big brand names such as RAW that offer niche products catered to certain groups of people, for example RAW make rolling papers that are completely unrefined, unbleached and made sustainably from hemp and non GMO crops. They have been so prolific and influential, creating a massive shift in the market, that older names such as OCB and Rizla have started to make their own versions of unrefined and hemp papers. Brands like Juicy Jay and Dragonfly make papers which are dipped in syrups to flavour them.
Rolls or Booklets of papers
Rolls or Rips are a great solution for when you need different sized papers. They come rolled up in a little box and you roll out the length you need and then rip them off. This makes it super convenient for different occasions, whether you're rolling a personal one or a foot long one to share at party, it means you don't have to carry around a bunch of different papers for different occasions. These were made popular by the brand Rips but brands such as Greengo and even Juicy Jay have done their own twist on the concept.
