A few months ago we reviewed Greengo’s 1 1/4 Rolling Papers and thought they offered decent for a brand nobody had heard of before.
So today we’re going up a size to try their King Size papers which are made from the exact same chemical and chlorine free paper except obviously with larger dimension. Although Greengo is relatively unknown in North America, this King Size rolling paper won a 2011 award at the Highlife European Product Awards.
Below you’ll find our review, rating and photos.
QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION
The essential specifications of this product is the same unbleached FSC-approved paper as their 1 1/4″ size. However these King Size papers measure 110 mm x 53 mm and 14 gr/m2 in terms of thickness which makes them a full 32 mm longer.
After using them for several days we noticed that there seemed to be a coating or some type of film on the paper when compared to other rolling papers. It wasn’t something we noticed as much with the smaller format but became more apparent with this larger size. However I want to stress this doesn’t mean there was anything wrong it’s just something to note.
EASE OF USE
Larger and/or thicker papers are easier to roll joints with but don’t necessarily create a better overall smoking experience.
When I first learned how to roll and was struggling greatly a couple of more experienced friends recommended stacking two Zig-Zags because the extra paper height would make rolling easier… and it certainly did. However at the same time this extra layer of paper also impacted the flavour of the flower.
So in terms of pure preparation I think these King Size papers are definitely easier to use when compared to regular or standard size. That being said, the trade off will be a change in flavour.
Greengo’s Regular King Size Rolling Papers are available for purchase at various online retailers including Amazon for an average of $31.99 (USD) per box. Each box contains 50 booklets with 33 leaves inside which makes the price per paper quite good when compared to similar brands.
If you’re looking for unbleached king size rolling papers that have not been chemically treated then you should probably look into Greengo. In all honesty, we liked them and they burn well enough but the feel and texture just seemed to be different then the papers we’re accustom to using.
