The RAW Black Rolling Papers are a special creation by RAW. Known as virtually the thinnest natural unbleached rolling paper, the Black Papers offer no interfering flavour, thereby allowing you to savour the true terpenes of the green buds.

How to Roll RAW papers?
Rolling RAW Papers is not very different from rolling any other paper. Except these are made from the highest quality.
Here's a brief guide on how to roll a joint:
- The first step is to get a grinder to shred the sticky nugs into a fine texture for a clean, smooth smoke.
- Adding a filter is an important step that should not be missed at any cost. Use a pre-rolled filter from RAW if you're not an expert. For a cleaner smoke, try the reusable RAW Glass Filter.
- Add the filter at the bottom of the paper and pinch the paper around the filter in such a manner that the rest of the paper remains unrolled.
- Sprinkle your preferred choice of herb or tobacco, ensuring that packing it too tight or light will alter the experience. It is recommended to use 1/2 gram weed in the 1 1/4 size rolling paper.
- Make use of your thumb and index finger to hold the paper in a taco shape. Now slowly start rolling the paper. In case any herb falls off, don't worry. You can always stuff it in later.
- Once rolled, lick the glue side and stick it to the paper. Ensure that the paper perfectly fits the filter on the end.
- Your masterpiece is ready to be lit!
