When it comes to smoking, some say there’s nothing more satisfying than rolling your own. Of course bong is convenient, but it does not unite you with friends like a slowly smoldering joint that you pass around. Common hand pipe is kind of “express” solution. I am convinced that only a good joint can provide that peaceful and warm atmosphere during the smoking session.
There are bunch of different rolling papers in the smoke shop, but which one should you use? For beginners, rolling might seem challenging. How big or small should I roll? Does it matter what the rolling paper is made of? Do I roll with a filter? Most of these answers come with practice, but knowing the options will help you to find the best rolling paper to start with.
Choosing size depends on how large or small you would like to make your Bob Marley’s cigarette. Start by narrowing down your selection to one or two of the most common sizes:
Single Wide: ~ 70mm (2.7 inches) long and between 1 1/2 inches — 1 3/4 inches wide
1 ¼ wide: ~78mm (3.07 inches) long and around 1 3/4 inches wide
1 ½ wide: ~78mm (3.07 inches) long and between 2 inches — 3 inches wide
Double Wide: ~78mm (3.07 inches) long and between 2 1/2 inches — 3 1/2 inches wide
King Size: ~110mm (4.3 inches) long and between 1 1/2–2 1/4 inches wide
General rule to follow - the wider and longer the paper is, the more you can fit inside. If you are a beginner, a wider paper also gives you more room for error when trying to tuck your paper.
Regarding the brands, I personally prefer RAW because its organic and pretty thick, which makes it easy to roll. If you would like to have as less additional taste as possible – choose a paper made from rise, it is ash free and light, but easy to break, hence require decent rolling skills.

I am so excited to use RAW accessories daily. I am super intrigued to get my hands on the new RAW Low Key Backpack. It doesn’t have as many logos as common RAW product hence it does not scream “I smoke weed” shout out when you wear one.
