Raw Natural Unbleached Papers
RAW Natural Unbleached Rolling Papers are a purer and less processed rolling paper unlike anything that you have ever seen or smoked before. These Raw papers are made from unbleached natural hemp that is grown and harvested using sustainable methods.
They are 100% chlorine free and 100% vegan.
Because they contain a blend of unbleached and non-chemically whitened vegan fibres, the paper is a natural tan colour and so thin that you can see through it. Each paper is watermarked with a the trademark criss-cross pattern, which helps prevent runs (sideburns) and maintains the smooth even-burning characteristics that the Raw organic papers are known for.
Smoking unbleached papers such as Raw Natural Unbleached Rolling Papers reduces the amount of toxic dioxins produced by burning tobacco, which is a bit like wearing armbands in the bath, but hey, save the Earth and all that.
Enjoy your favourite smoke in its purest form, try RAW Natural Rolling Papers and experience the amazing difference.
RAW Organic papers are made from organically grown, unbleached, pure hemp and is processed in an eco-friendly manner. The result is a very thin light tan paper that burns extra slow and extra clean. It uses the same proprietary crisscross run-preventing watermark as RAW Classic but the color is much lighter and varies depending on the shade of the hemp used in production.
The taste of RAW Organic is unlike anything you have experienced. It is a clean tasting smoke that is best described as natural, light and pure. Finally, we can all smoke an ORGANIC rolling paper made from pure hemp!

The RAW Natural Rolling Paper Project
RAW is the culmination of a 12 year project to produce the most natural rolling paper possible.
RAW was a project that came to mind after smoking a pack of additive free cigarettes in 1993. The thought was, if they can make an additive free cigarette, can they wrap it in an additive free paper? There are many rumors about gunpowder rings and strange additives in conventional mass-marketed cigarette paper, these additives could actually increase carbon monoxide (read http://tobaccodocuments.org/product_design/954799.html). We became determined to produce and market the purest cigarette rolling papers possible.
They say "the devil lies in the details", and now that we had an idea the problem was how do we bring this idea to fruition. It took years of research and development (and many failed attempts) until we finally produced the first pack of what would later become known as RAW. We sent out hundreds of packs for testing by smokers and received extremely positive reviews. A few older smokers that had been rolling their own for many years mentioned that they felt our papers made their cigarettes 'taste different'. This was something that took us a long time to figure out the cause of. After analysis, we determined that our papers didn't taste 'different' but rather these smokers were so used to the taste of certain chemicals or whitening processes in their cigarettes that when these chemicals and additives were reduced, they 'missed' the taste! We proved this point to ourselves by conducting tests with specially designed tobacco pipes. The pipes were made out of labglass to be sure that they would not add any flavor to the smoking experience. Our determination was that RAW papers are so natural and pure that smoking a cigarette rolled in RAW is parallel in taste to smoking through a pipe, whereas using conventional cigarette paper presented the added 'taste' of the added level of whitening (even if natural) or any possible chemicals and additives used in their processing.
We later designed a watermark that accented the burn qualities of the paper and helped to prevent uneven burning. The unique criss-cross HBI watermark is another proprietary technique we used to accent our papers and help deliver a smooth, even burn. We are very confident that you will find RAW to be the best cigarette paper you have ever used. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with our product then please contact us and we will exchange it for packs of one of our other products.
