Today we’re continuing our rolling paper reviews with another product from the Moon Group.
These “fine” papers are the lightest available from this brand and achieve high air permeability resulting in a smooth smoking experience. This sounds good because Moon’s Apple Flavored Rolling Papers were made from a thicker paper that affected the burn. Thin papers are what we prefer to use so we’re curious how these compare to classic brands like Zig Zag or Rizla.
Check our review, rating and photos below.
QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION
Moon makes this product from a 12 gsm (grams per square meter) flax paper mix.
From what we could learn they did this for two reasons: the first was to achieve a slow-even burn and second was to keep the paper itself as thin as possible. They use a natural Arabic gum for adhesive to keep everything wrapped.
The paper definitely felt ultra-thin and could easily tear or rip if you don’t pay attention while rolling or have damp fingers.
EASE OF USE
These definitely felt thinner then previous Moon rolling paper which they should.
If you know how to roll then you’ll have no issues with these, but if you don’t then your job will not be made any easier for you. We did enjoy how smooth and evenly these papers burned.
However rolling the joint will be the easy part, the much more difficult task will be finding a retailer who carries this brand in the first place. We couldn’t find them on Amazon or order directly from the manufacturer but eventually found some on eBay and a few overseas smoke shops. Depending on where you live this brand might be more trouble then it’s worth to source.
Moon’s fine flax rolling papers are tough to find but generally cost less than competitors. Each box contains 25 booklets with 50 leaves inside each which is similar to other rolling paper brands.
The smoking experience was good as this product is similar in size and weight as standard Zig-Zags which is our go-to rolling paper and baseline for comparison. But as mentioned in the Ease of Use section, the value and quality of these papers is not really the issue, the problem will be (depending on your location) finding them in the first place.
