The 5 Best Rolling Papers

Quality rolling papers are an often overlooking part of smoking weed, but picking the right one can make for a much better experience, and take you one step closer to bliss.

Choosing a decent book of rolling papers is a lot trickier than it used to be. Long gone are the days where the only option was the standard tobacco rolling papers from your local shop. There are now dozens of companies out there, all selling specialised papers specifically for rolling joints - with most of them having their own unique features. Trying to choose can be quite overwhelming, especially for something that should seemingly be so simple. It can result in many tokers simply sticking with the first brand they ever try. Before discussing our Top 5, check out this burn test featuring 10 different rolling papers!


If you fancy mixing things up a bit, or are looking for a quality paper to roll the perfect joint, here are our top 5 rolling paper brands:

5. OCB:

OCB X-Pert

OCB’s X-pert king size rolling papers are a European favourite, and a cornerstone for many seasoned rollers. They are ultra-thin, 100% natural, made to burn slow, and have Arabic gumming – making for some long, fat joints! However, the ultra-thin nature of these papers can make them quite tricky to use for inexperienced rollers.
