Ever wondered about the difference between pre-rolled papers and the papers you roll on your own?
Let us first clear what are Pre rolled papers.
Pre-rolled papers or also called as Pre-rolled cones are excellent for smoking your stuff precisely because they have already been rolled (typically by a machine). If you don't have any experience with hand-rolling (or have joint pain in your hands), pre rolled cones are a great way to enjoy smoking. If you are a beginner who does not know how to roll a joint or straight up lazy to roll one, pre-rolled cones are a boon for you. They usually come in different sizes and flavours. You can always buy one according to your preference. Here at slimjim we offer a wide variety of flavours to give you a joyous experience. All you have to do is scoop,fill and enjoy.
WHAT ARE SOME PROS AND CONS OF PRE-ROLLED PAPERS
- Easy to use for beginners:
Pre rolled cones are easy to use for beginners because they are conveniently ready for consumption all you got to do is grind your stuff and fill it. It keeps you from carrying all the other complex smoking accessories and saves space for more stuff.
-Less time consuming:
Cones are convenient because you save time using them. Each pre rolls take only a few minutes whereas, manually rolling joints take significantly longer.
-Variety in sizes and flavours:
As mentioned above you noticed different flavours in your cone but they also come along in different sizes, from
From top to bottom:
1¼ Cone (83mm)
Kingsize Cone (110mm)
Peacemaker Cone (140mm)
Emperador Cone (180mm)
Supernatural Cone (280mm)
As convenient as these cones are, the also have a few drawbacks.
-They can be comparatively expensive:
The unfortunate reality is that these cones can be expensive but if money is not an issue to you this curse is not for you. But again these cones are usually machine made and save you from all the hassle of rolling your own hence they are a bit expensive. Prices in India go from 15/- to as high as it can get depending on the quality, flavour, type and most importantly the brand.
-They can be damaged easily:
Because of the shape of the cone, if removed from the packaging they can be crumpled easily hence it is very important to handle the product with extreme precision and care.
Cones are usually sold in individual pieces and not as a packet. With rolling papers multiple joints can be rolled at once. This can be a deal-breaker for many smokers. But again money is not your concern or you are smoking in groups and the cost will be divided equally then this is not a curse for you.
Now lets talk about manually rolled papers or Roll your owns.
Rolling papers are specialty papers usually used for making your own cigarettes and joints according to your own craft. You can roll it in any shapes, any size and any volume its totally on the discretion of the roller. Unlike pre-rolled cones these rolling papers come in packs of several cigarette sized sheets often folded inside a high quality carboard wrapper with brandings on it. It is also known as blanks. Like pre-rolled papers here at slimjim we also provide a wide variety of roll-your-own papers. They come in different flavours and sizes.
