EZ Wider Wild Berry Review

EZ Wider Wild Berry 32 Leaves $1.50/pack Pro: Easy to roll with!! Cons: Really, where’s the party? – flavoring is lame. Short size not my cup of tea. Harsh, unclean burn. EZ Wider: Undoubtedly the most well-known cigarette rolling paper (with only Bambu rivaling at a close second).  But there are inherent downsides to such fame.  Being the most commercialized (found in 4 out of 5 convenience stores) has done nothing for this paper’s burn quality. EZ Wider’s popularity definitely stems from its ease of roll.  And EZ Wider’s Wild Berry addition does not disappoint in this department.  This is one of the most forgiving papers on the market in terms of rolling. As such, its perfect for rolling newbs due to the durability, thicker leaf, and overall feel of the paper.  One complaint is the 1.25 size, labeled on the packaging as “French Size.”  I’m warning you now that …

SharpStone Grinder Review

About six months ago I bought myself a 5-piece SharpStone grinder from ebay user HippieKid23. At a reasonable price it came out to $29 with shipping. The grinder hasn’t jammed, required cleaning or even dulled since I received it. My last grinder was a noname brand I bought at a street vendor for $40 and was only four pieces and the kief catcher caught more than just kief. What I liked instantly about the SharpStone grinder was that the bottom kief catcher had smaller metal woven netting so it caught only the finest kief (the strong sh!t). The quality of the grinder is very exceptional ALTHOUGH I have found pieces of the metal woven netting in my ground up bud on occasion. The pieces I found weren’t broken, but overhanging pieces that weren’t taken off properly in the assembly of it. That is my only complaint on the entire product. …

EZ-Widers Review

EZ-Widers Double Wide $1.50 per pack 33 leaves Pros: Good to learn with Cons: Too wide, harsh smoke, lots of paper ATTENTION all n00bs, these are the papers for you.  If you haven’t mastered the part of rolling where you tuck the paper under and create a cylinder, ez-widers have enough paper that you can roll it like a burrito, or a rug.  The final product will have three layers of paper and probably taste terrible, but hey, you’re learning. The main point of ez-widers is to be extra wide for rolling.  The problem with that is why would anyone want a rolling paper that was super thick and not very long?  There aren’t many other features that ez-widers feature.  The texture of the paper is satisfactory but not very strong, and the adhesive strip could be a little stickier.  Also since there is so much extra paper, it will …

Bambu Papers Review

Bambu Papers 1.50 per pack 33 Leaves Made in Spain Bambu rolling papers are as standard as you can get.  I remember first discovering them at the beginning of my rolling days.  They allowed me to screw up a few times, yet not fall apart in my hands or tear due to excess licking.  Be careful though, as any paper that gets too moist can and will rip. 33 papers per pack is a pretty conventional amount to have, even though in my opinion more is always better.  Where Bambu really pulls through in the clutch is the length of the papers.  At 3 inches, it’s neither too long nor too short, and if you need more, just roll another paper.  The smoke could be a little lighter though, I often find myself noticing the taste of the paper, which isn’t what I want to be focusing on. If you …

HEMP RIPS Review

Hemp Rips $1.50 – 2.00 53mm wide, 5m long Pros: Ultra long, your choice of length Cool Packaging With these, no need for other length papers Cons: Sometimes rip off too much Box isn’t flat for pocket comfort These are probably one of the cooler rolling papers you’ll encounter. Hemp Rips are a tube of rolling paper where you can pull out as long of a paper as you’d like and rip it off, allowing for the final product to be anywhere from an inch, to 15 feet. IMAGINE SMOKING SOMETHING 15 FEET LONG! Once you’ve stopped using the hemp rips to measure certain body parts, or even use those body parts to help roll the paper (I’m talking about fingers), you’ll notice that the quality of the paper is pretty durable, accompanied by a sticky adhesive strip. These are no easier or harder to roll than any other paper. …

Pure Hemp King Size Rolling Paper Review

Pure Hemp King Size Price: 2 – 3 dollars 33 leaves Made in Spain Pros: Long Lasting Sticky Good ratio of width to length Cons: Maybe a little too long.  King Size is big 33 is ok, but 50 leaves would be plentiful Pure Hemp is quite the impressive brand of cigarette papers.  They produce a sturdy, yet delicate rolling paper that has a promising adhesive strip at the end.  There have been times when I have reached for other papers first, only to have them rip, be too short, or have a shoddy adhesive.  But one must look no further as Pure Hemp covers all the bases and leaves no one with a bad smoking experience.  The actual appeal of these papers isn’t unveiled until you actually light them, but once you have, you’ll realize that they are burning so slowly, you could go have lunch come back, and …

How to Clean a Glass Bowl, Bong and Pipe

I’ve been getting this question on Twitter a lot recently so I felt I’d answer it in a post. I’ve gone through 4 Glass Bongs, 3 One-Hitter Pipes, and a countless number of glass bowls.
