My quest to stock as many varieties of innovative rolling papers as I possibly can continues. Not sure when I will decide that I have enough, but that time is not now (and not soon)! As I have stated in many of my write ups, smoking is never ever going to be healthy for you but that does not mean that less damaging methods should not be sought. Not all rolling papers are created equal with some using substances such as bleach or chalk during processing.
Not just your average rolling paper brand, OCB has a very very long history of making paper (of many varieties) starting in 1822 (France)! It wasn’t till 1917 that their focus shifted more towards rolling papers. Don’t need to do the math for you as I am sure you can see the 100 years that have passed since then. One year later after much work the first packet of OCB rolling papers were officially released. Ever since that time OCB has flourished and developed a stellar worldwide reputation. The brand has reached cult status in Europe.
TIP: OCB stands for Odet Cascadec Bollorè. Odet for the Odet River where the first paper mill was situated. Cascadec was the location of their second paper mill and Bollorè is the name of the family that founded it all.
I sell papers made from a few different materials such as hemp, ultrafine, cellulose (transparent), palm leaves, banana leaves, flax and corn. There is a reason to choose each (burn rate, taste, thickness etc) with personal preference the reason why a certain type is favoured.
Bamboo is not commonly used to manufacture rolling papers, but it is slowly gaining in popularity as more partakers look for different options. Bamboo papers are a great choice for those that take environmental responsibility to new heights. OCB takes this seriously and only use 100% responsibly sourced bamboo, whereby the root is not removed and remains in the ground to regrow after harvest. No harsh fertilisers/pesticides/herbicides are used in the growing process. As I keep mentioning over and over again, smoking is not healthy for you and never will be. But that does not mean that many brands are not constantly striving to perfect and purify their production processes to eliminate as many toxins as possible.
These papers are quite thin (14g/m2) and are designed to burn very smoothly, evenly and slowly. No bleach, dye or chlorine has been used. These papers are also GMO-Free and Vegan. Always-Sticks Natural Acacia Gum has been included and all these factors together add up to a pretty clean rolling paper.
The quality of these papers can be seen when attempting to roll as these very fine papers are actually quite durable and shouldn’t rip (doesn’t hurt to be gentle though). Lastly and for most the crucial element is the fact that papers made from Bamboo leave behind no flavour and/or aftertaste when smoked.
