Today we’re reviewing the unbleached version of Smoking brand’s regular sized rolling papers.
Three or four different people have mentioned the similarities these papers have with Zig-Zag… which as you may recall is the brand we grew up using so it’s hard not to compare other rollies to them. Since we reviewed Smoking’s Thinnest Medium Papers recently it seemed like a great time to see how this style compares.
Check the review, rating and photos below.
QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION
Smoking Papers uses FSC approved paper, meeting the “gold standard” of ethical production was used and harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious and economically viable.
The papers measure 69×37 mm and feature 100% natural vegetable-based gum instead of potentially harmful artificial compounds. Made with ultra-fine, highly transparent leaves to produce a slow-burning experience, they definitely feel similar to Zig-Zig but the real test will be how they burn.
EASE OF USE
The paper definitely feels similar to Zig-Zags except these are unbleached and without cut corners. If you know how to roll then you’ll have no issues with these papers, but if you don’t then your job won’t be any easier with these.
I’m particular about the rolling papers used because I feel they can enhance or destroy the experience. Smoking brand up to this point has been surprisingly good but obviously with any wrap the most important part is the burn which we’re moving onto next.
When it comes to assessing overall value, we think it’s unfortunate you can’t buy this product directly from the manufacturer’s website because that means you’ll be hunting around at third party headshops or Amazon.
However we did some digging around and did find Smoking Double Window Regular Rolling Papers available for between $35.99 and $45.99 (USD) per box. Each box contains 25 booklets with 120 leaves inside each giving you 3,000 leaves for $35.99 – not a bad price when you compare it competing brands.
We’re becoming fans of Smoking brand papers and feel they burn better then Moon’s rolling papers but not as good as classic Zig-Zag White Regulars. The only issue is that because they are not widely available you might have to hunt around to find them. If that doesn’t bother you and you want very thin papers then you’re probably going to like this product.
