Part of Josh’s Rolling Paper family, Elements 1 1/4 Rolling Papers. are Ultra-Thin translucent Rice Rolling Papers with self seal sugar natural acacia gum strip. Looking back many years ago Josh, HBI’s founder, remembered seeing his father taking great pleasure in rolling his own smokes with “Marfil Arroz” rolling papers. Josh’s father would light a sheet of these papers on fire and throw it into the air. The paper would just disappear without producing any ash. The thin pure rice paper would just vanish! .He always used ungummed thin rice papers because they burn with almost ZERO ash. Pure rice papers are just that, NO chemicals, NO pulp and NO hemp. When creating these paper’s Josh decided to return to the “ELEMENTS” of smoking. Thus he designed a paper made from pure rice, pressed it to make it ultra slow burning and incredibly thin (~12 gsm). Then he added just a thin strip of natural gum from sugar. The result is probably the best rolling paper ever produced by man. Elements® burn with zero ash, except for a tiny line caused by the sugar gum turning into caramel as it burns. You can’t go wrong with these rice rolling papers, especially if you pair them with a pack of Raw Tips to create the perfect smoking experience.
