Zig Zag 1 1/4″ White Cones (6-pack) Review

1 1/4" white cones from Zig Zag are made form thin-weight paper to produce an even, slow burning experience.

Standard size white Zig Zags are the rolling papers we used growing up so there’s a natural bias towards them we’ll try to avoid.

Today we’re reviewing their 1 1/4″ pre-rolled cones which are made from the same thin rice paper and African acacia tree sap for adhesive. The thin paper provides a slow, even burn while the natural properties of gum provide a consistent seal without impacting the flavour.

We reviewed Futurola’s blunt cone a few weeks ago and loved it so we’re curious how this paper version from Zig Zag compares.

QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION

The 6 pack of cones comes in a distinctive slide box to help avoid crushing them in your pocket.

Created from a fine blend of natural fibres Zig Zig rolling papers are advertised as delivering a slow, even burn with zero hassle. Given the very thin paper it would make total sense that these would burn slowly and evenly. Plus they each have a cardboard filter attached with a small cardboard tube inserted in the middle to help keep the shape and form.

Zig Zag has done pretty much everything they can to prevent these fragile items from tearing or sticking. Reminded me of Smoking’s 1 1/4″ brown cones except obviously these were not using the unbleached paper or filters.

EASE OF USE

Obviously the best part of these cones is the fact you don’t need to know anything about rolling to prepare the perfect joint. You just need to take your time grinding, fill, pack and repeat until full.

Be patient because packing a cone takes longer then rolling a joint. We’d recommend going slow to avoid tearing any of the paper. If you do, your patience will be rewarded with a densely packed, slow burning bat that can be enjoyed by several people.

It took us about 3 minutes to grind the weed and another 8 to 10 minutes to gently pack the cone. If you find this too much work then you’re next option is the wonderful world of pre-rolls.

OVERALL VALUE

Most of the pricing we found online was related to cartons instead of an individual box.

Individual boxes cost around $8.99 (for 6 cones) whereas cartons costs around $80 and contain 36 boxes with each box containing 6 pre-rolled cones. That means for $80 you’re getting 216 cones which is not a bad price if this is your preferred method to prepare joints.

If you want to get it done right and quickly, then this happy medium is a nice option between assembling papers and a filter yourself or buying a pre-roll. We had no issue preparing or smoking these cones so if you’re already a fan of this brand then you’ll be right at home with these.

Summary

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.

Have your say!
