12 Best Rolling Papers - We tested every brand on the market!

Are you tired of begging your friends to roll up the next blunt? Do you want to master the art of blunt and joint rolling? It's an enviable skill, and we've got some great videos below! One of the key things you're going to need to help you in your quest will be having the best rolling papers to get the job done. By wrapping your precious herb in one of the papers from this list of our favourites you're ensuring you're smoking with quality and safety.


What's the difference between a blunt and a joint?

Both joints and blunts only contain cannabis; if tobacco is added it is called a spliff. A blunt is rolled with darker paper that contains tobacco while joints are rolled with standard translucent papers that are tobacco free.

Among the most well known brands in the rolling paper industry, Raw have been around for decades and have a huge range of products. The most popular papers are the Unrefined Classic 1.25”. These papers are ideal for both experienced and beginner rollers; the paper is thick enough so that it doesn’t tear easily but not overly thick to the point that it affects the flavour.

Zig Zag Rolling Papers - $48 (768 papers)

 high marijuana cannabis

Sturdy and slow burning, Zig Zag is known for quality.
This French origin company has more than 130 years of history and is famous on both sides of the Atlantic for its high quality papers. They are made from 100% natural Arabic gum and the finest unbleached fibers, giving an even and slow burn. We thought that the papers were durable and easy to use but the glue can be a little stronger. 
 
A box comes with 24 booklets, each containing 32 papers; this is equivalent to 6 cents per paper and is rather expensive for something non-flavoured. They're worth considering if you’re thinking about a large purchase. Zig Zag do have an impressive range of other products including hemp paper products, pre rolled paper cones and premium paper advertised as Zig Zag Slo Burn. 
 
What we love!
  • 100% natural paper
  • Famous company

Each shine paper is handcrafted and made with the finest edible gold; the base is made out of a hemp blend, giving the smoothest burn imaginable. 
 
Do note that despite being an awesome product, these papers are yet to be tested by the Food and Drug Administration for their potentially harmful effects - smoke at your own risk. 
 
A King Size Tyga gold rolling paper is also available if you prefer larger papers.
 
What we love!
  • Visually stunning
  • Super smooth burn

 

 

Bob Marley Papers - $29.99 (1250 papers)

 marley joint weed

Smoking in the name of Bob Marley is never a bad move.
Named after the rapper and stoner, these marijuana rolling papers are a tribute to the legend himself. 
 
These joint papers are manufactured in Spain and are made from pure hemp. This not only provides a slow burn, but also means they're very easy to roll and lacks a “papery” taste. They have gathered many 5 star reviews over the years although some have complained that the glue’s strength diminishes when exposed to moisture, so be sure to store these papers somewhere dry.  
 
When bought in bulk, each paper only costs 2.4 cents making them fantastic value for money! 
 
What we love!
  • Good value for money
  • Nice packaging
  • Easy to roll

 

 

Elements Rice Rolling Papers - $37.50 (6000 papers)

 rice paper natural

One of the thinnest papers out there, these rice papers leave no competing taste with your marijuana.
Elements papers are as thin as they come, meaning you get the purest bud taste with barely any ash. These ultra thin rice papers are made free from any chemicals and are completely natural. In addition, customers storing these papers for long periods have praised the fact that they are relatively moisture resistant. 
 
Despite being relatively tear resistant, it’s still pretty easy to wrinkle or crease the paper, meaning that they aren’t great for beginners since they are harder to roll.
 
Best of all, these papers are very affordable, with 300 leaves per pack. A box of 20 packs is also sold.   
 
What we love!
  • Ultra thin papers
  • Pure bud taste
  • Less than 1 cent per paper

Any keen tobacco or marijuana user will know legendary French company OCB. They've have been manufacturing high quality papers for decades and only use natural ingredients such as natural Arabic gum. They have a large range of products and we believe that the Premium King Size rolling papers are the best of the lot. 
 
These papers are massive, measuring in at 108mm long; enough to fit up to 3 grams of fresh bud. In addition, each paper comes with a filter tip allowing for a much easier rolling experience. 
 
Each pack contains 32 papers and are sold in boxes of 5 packs.

 smoke joint roll

With the addition of a wire, Randy's make for easier rolling and smoking!
Manufactured and hand-packed in the US since 1975, Randy’s rolling papers are unique for their stainless steel wire. This design is special for two reasons: Firstly, it provides the joint with a bit more strength during rolling and smoking. Secondly, once the first half of the joint is finished, one can hold the exposed wire to prevent burning their fingers. We tested this out and it definitely comes in handy if you like to smoke without filters! This video demonstrates the special function:


Made from a blend of tree pulp and flax, the papers are 100% organic and vegan friendly.  Standard rolling papers (77mm) and king rolling papers (110mm) are available.
 
What we love!
  • Unique stainless steel wire 
  • 100% organic & vegan
  • Easy to roll

 

Rizla Rolling Papers - $38.50 (1000 papers)

Which colour speaks to you? Photo: @Rizla.br
Rizlas papers are known for being the best cigarette rolling papers but work equally well for weed! This French company has more than 150 years of experience in making high quality rolling papers. The name “Rizla” originates from the French word “Riz,” meaning rice, and “La,” which stands for the original family name “Lacroix.”
 
Many different papers are manufactured and identified by the colour of its package; if you’re an experienced roller, we recommend the Silver rolling papers. These papers are super thin and burn very slowly. However, they do contain additives which make the smoking paper stronger and are not for those looking to avoid chemicals. If you’re a relative rookie at rolling, we recommend the thicker Red or Green rolling papers. 
 
What we love!
  • Famous brand
  • Variety of different papers
  • Beautifully translucent

    

 

Raw King Size Supreme Rolling Papers - $8.19 (198 papers)

 thc high smoke

Perfect for sharing! Or... not!
King Size Raw Blacks is another one of Raw’s classic products. They measure in at 110mm and can hold around 2 grams of fresh bud. They are made out of the purest natural gum and the ultra thin hemp burns slowly and evenly; the papers do not impact the flavour of the bud therefore giving the purest taste. We thought that they were pretty easy to roll and the glue holds tight as long as you do not over wet it. 
 
Black rolling papers are sold in booklets of 32, costing around 4 cents per paper. Excellent value for king size papers!
 
What we love!
  • Ultra thin hemp burns slowly
  • Can be rolled by machine easily
  • Good value
