There are so many rolling papers out on the market right now and at our Vancouver smoke shop, we offer a diverse range. There’s one type, however, that has numerous benefits both for people and the environment: hemp papers.
With rolling papers being key players in your health, it’s a good idea to do your research and choose something that will benefit you for the long-term. let’s take a look at the benefits of choosing hemp over other paper fibres.
Less Environmental Impact
First and foremost, hemp is much more beneficial to the environment compared to trees. The hemp plant grows in a matter of months while the trees that are used for rolling papers take years to grow – sometimes up to 40 years. In addition, hemp requires minimal water and resources to grow, requires no pesticides, herbicides or other hazardous chemicals that cause harm to wildlife and our planet. What’s more, hemp produces better soil conditions through phytoremediation.
A Cleaner, Safer Burn Without the Chemicals
Hemp requires little and sometimes no fertilizer to grow, as well as no pesticides or herbicides like previously mentioned. Rolling papers made from hemp are 100% free of the residues that are sometimes left behind from other more traditional rolling paper materials, making them natural and toxin-free.
As for traditional papers? They’re are made from tree pulp where chemicals are added for better rolling and chlorine and calcium carbonate are used to bleach them. Coloured papers should especially be avoided as they contain potassium nitrate.
While some traditional tree pulp papers are too thick, others made from other materials are too thin or difficult to roll with. Hemp papers are the perfect thickness and have just enough friction, making them easy to roll with for beginners and veterans alike. They also have a slow, pleasant and even burn.
While traditional rolling papers have a bad taste due to a harsh burn from chemicals and other residues, hemp papers burn slowly, evenly and have a pleasant taste and natural flavour.
