What is the difference between blunt wraps and rolling papers?
There used to be a clear difference between blunt wraps and rolling papers in the fact that blunt wraps were almost always made with tobacco materials, whereas rolling papers were typically made of different materials like rice paper. Blunt wraps are often a lot thicker than joint wraps are, and this is because of the materials that it is made out of. Blunt wraps are also typically supposed to hold more materials and need stability. Joint wraps or rolling papers can be made a lot thinner and are made of several different kinds of materials, like:
- Wood pulp
Shelf life and freshness of joint wraps
Joint wraps are typically made of sustainable materials and usually have a longer shelf life than blunt wraps do because of this. It takes more effort to store blunt wraps properly, while joint wraps are oftentimes in a convenient resealable package or container that will help preserve its freshness.
Burn rate and efficiency
While both blunt wraps and joint wraps burn pretty slowly, if you are looking for an extremely slow burn that is usually best for a group setting - blunt wraps are probably the go-to for celebratory type of wraps. Joint wraps are great for everyday solo and group sessions and each pack comes with quite a few.
Blunt wraps tend to add up since most are sold one or two per pack, whereas joint wraps are sold in a compact little package with at least 100 joint wraps to last you for some time. If rolling up your dry herb materials is your preference, joint wraps or rolling papers are your best bet.

Best rolling papers for me, because size matters
Thick vs Thin - Thicker papers are great for beginners who are still learning to roll. However, they burn faster than thinner papers, so most experienced smokers prefer the slow-burning thin papers. We carry a variety of ultra-thin papers as well as thicker ones.
Width - The four most common rolling paper sizes are single wide, 1¼ wide, 1½ wide, and king-sized . The bigger the paper, the bigger the joint, so think about how many people you’ll be smoking with while you shop for these.
