Enjoying your herb from a hand-rolled joint used to be the main way to smoke. But these days, there are plenty of options, including pre-rolled cones where you just fill, twist, and smoke. So, which is better? Let’s take a look at rolling papers vs pre-rolled cones.
Rolling Papers Compaired To Pre-rolled Cones
First, let’s consider the classic joint, which is crafted with traditional rolling papers. There are many different types of rolling papers and one of the main ways they differ is in size. When it comes to choosing the size of your rolling papers, there are two popular options: the standard 1-¼ inch and the larger King Size paper. The 1-¼ size is generally best for smoking solo, while King Size can hold more herb and is great for seshing with your squad. Because of the variety of sizes, a key reason to choose rolling papers over pre-rolled cones is their versatility. You can have complete control of what you roll and how much herb you use. It’s also easier to carry a pack of rolling papers than cones as they fit more easily into your pocket. Of course, we can’t forget to mention that rolling papers are the more affordable option.

Remember – no one rolls a perfect joint on the first try and it’s a skill that takes trial and error to master. Perfecting the classic joint can be more time-consuming since it takes more time to fill the rolling paper. It also takes the right stuff. If your joint is too loose, it can burn unevenly. If it’s too tight, it can be difficult to take a hit.
Pre Rolled Cones
Pre-rolled cones, on the other hand, are a great convenience for smokers of all varieties and experience levels. Cones are rolled perfectly every time – meaning you don’t have to be a practiced roller in order to roll a perfect J. Pre-rolls are also easier to fill. Because of this, it takes less time to fill your joint so you can get to smoking quicker and load more in a shorter span of time (hello kush party).
Pre-rolls also burn differently than straight joints since they are tapered and are larger at one end. Hits off pre-rolls get gradually more mellow as they burn down to the narrow part. If you want to learn how to use pre-rolled cones, read our How To Roll with Pre-Rolled Cones blog post.
At the end of the day, both rolling papers and pre-rolled cones can get you that perfect smoke sesh you are looking for. When filling your cone or rolling paper, you want a fine, even grind to your herb. The best way to achieve that is with Blazy’s 4-piece grinder. Additionally, whether using rolling papers or pre-rolls it’s best to use a rolling tray to fill and roll your joint to make sure you don’t lose any of your material. You can read about how a rolling tray helps your smoking sesh on our Benefits of Using a Rolling Tray blog post.
