by James Spencer Blogger

A good quality rolling paper can improve the smoking experience to a higher degree. Excellent papers can improve the quality of the rolled joint, even if they cannot substitute the artful skill of rolling a perfect joint. Mind you, it is not child’s play and learning to roll a top-notch joint can take you several years. Even after the recent advent of vaporizers, joints are still the most common and conventional way to intake cannabinoids.  A good quality rolling paper can improve the smoking experience to a higher degree. Excellent papers can improve the quality of the rolled joint, even if they cannot substitute the artful skill of rolling a perfect joint. Mind you, it is not child’s play and learning to roll a top-notch joint can take you several years. Even after the recent advent of vaporizers, joints are still the most common and conventional way to intake cannabinoids.  

Traditional rolling papers are crafted from wood pulp, which, as a smoking material, has its advantages as well as disadvantages. However, in the last twenty years or so, the CBD industry has gone through a significant transformation. There is a grown customer base comprising of cannabis-focused and health-conscious adults, and they want nothing but the very best for their smoking experience. More sophisticated papers have entered the market, with hemp, rice and even transparent cellulose papers introduced to satisfy the needs of an aware and conscious public. 

Each kind of rolling paper is unique and have its own set of benefits, and different types of rolling papers appeal to different customers. Some of the factors that should come into consideration while choosing the best rolling paper material are thickness, burning speed and of course, taste. Wood and hemp are two of the paper variants that are available everywhere. To keep you guided when you are going to buy rolling papers in Indonesia, here are the difference between wood pulp paper and pure hemp paper. 

Wood Pulp Paper

  • Wood pulp is the most common and widely available rolling paper variant.
  • The texture of these papers makes it easy to handle.
  • The wood pulp can be made to blend with other fibres for distinctive flavours.
  • These papers are thicker than the newer, more sophisticated types, and for that reason, they are convenient for beginners. As they hold their shape well, they can be manipulated into a perfect roll even in adverse weather conditions, humidity or sweaty, shaky hands.
  • These papers are available in different thicknesses, in both bleached and unbleached variant. While brown papers are not bleached, white papers are treated with bleach.
  • Wood pulp papers burn at a medium rate.
  • Wood pulp papers contain harmful chemicals that can be detrimental to your health. 


Hemp Paper

  • Hemp made its return as a rolling paper material and was immediately heralded by the smoking community.
  • Hemp is eco-friendly and helps to save trees since the papers are solely produced from hemp fibre.
  • Hemp is mainly available in light brown unbleached variant because bleach is often not appreciated by the consumers of cannabis.
  • Hemp papers are thick and rough, providing a firm grip.
  • Hemp has an average rate of burning.
  • Joints that are made with hemp papers may give off a delicate aftertaste that adds to the cannabis smoking experience.
  • However, hemp tends to absorb humidity and may be challenging to light under adverse weather conditions.


There are also rice and cellulose rolling papers available in the Indonesian cannabinoid accessories market, but they are not as popular as wood or hemp. However, it’s essential to know the details before buying when you are trying to get hold of a pack of excellent rolling papers in Indonesia. Whether you are buying from a local vendor or online, make sure to know the material of the paper for the best possible experience.
