Hemp rolling paper and Hemp wrap

What is the difference between an hemp rolling paper and hemp wrap? Can we use the leave to do the rolling paper and the wrap?



Hemp papers would be what you would consider normal rolling papers, just made from hemp and sometimes advertised as vegan.
Wraps are much thicker and usually larger and more resemble a cigar.

If you want to use leaves it’s a bit more of a process.


Thanks for the answer, but can you tell me why the hemp wrap is thicker then the hemp rolling paper? Do you know if the wrap is made of hemp leave?

I believe it’s made the same as papers, but is heavier. It’s ground hemp leave and stems, bound and rolled into sheets.


Yes I would agree that they are thicker.

I have never tried to make my own but here is a set of instruction if you want to give it a try.

Simple Recipe:
Wood Frame (old picture frame can be used too) size of a blunt wrap
Plastic Basin/Tub (Large enough to totally immerse frame)
Blender/Food Processor (For making hemp pulp)
White Felt or Flannel Fabric
Staples or Tacks (For tacking screen on frame)

Most important, hemp material. Hemp contains two types of fibers, vegetative fibers like leaves and stems(we won’t use stems here) and then they have the fiber from their dense stickybudz. You can use straight leaves or you can make straight bud paper. Or you can make a hybrid paper and get benefits from both different types. You want to use at least 10% bud in any paper for some natural gluey properties.


  1. Prepare your hemp by soaking it in warm water for a few minutes to maybe overnight if you wish.
  2. Squeeze out excess water and place hemp into the blender. (about half full). Fill the blender with warm water. Run the blender slowly at first then increase the speed until the pulp looks smooth and well blended. ( 30 -40 seconds) Check that no flakes of plant material remain. If there are, blend longer.
  3. The next step is to make a mold. The mold, in this case, is made simply by stretching pantyhose over a wooden frame (fig1) and stapling it. It should be taught but not so tight as to make the openings in the fibers too large. We are going to have a thinner paste solution than normal in our basin as we are making smoking paper.
  4. Fill the basin about half way with water. Add pulp. (the more pulp you add the thicker the finished paper will be, if you want a heavy blunt wrap make your mix thick, if you want a lighter joint paper make it thinner) Stir the mixture.
  5. Place the mold into the pulp and then level it out while it is submerged. Gently wiggle it side-to-side until the pulp on top of the screen looks even.
  6. Slowly lift the mold up until it is above the level of the water. Wait until most of the water has drained from the new paper sheet. If the paper is very thick, remove some pulp from the tub. If it is too thin, add more pulp and stir the mixture again.
  7. When the mold stops dripping, gently place one edge on the side of a fabric square (felt or flannel square). Gently ease the mold down flat, with the paper directly on the fabric. Use a sponge to press out as much water as possible. Wring the excess water from the sponge back into the large plastic tub.
  8. Now comes the tricky part. Hold the fabric square flat and slowly lift the edge of the mold. The wet sheet of paper should remain on the fabric. If it sticks to the mold, you may have pulled to fast or not pressed out enough water. It takes a little practice. You can gently press out any bubbles and loose edges at this point.
  9. Repeat the steps above, and stack the fabric squares on a cookie sheet. Save one fabric square to place on the top of the stack to cover the last piece of paper. Use another cookie sheet to press the remaining water out of the stack. (do this outside or in the bathtub, it can make a mess)
  10. After you press the stack, gently separate the sheets. They can be dried by hanging on a clothesline or laying them out on sheets of newspaper. When they have dried peel them off the fabric and voila! you have paper!

Papers are for joints and wraps are for blunts. It basically is just a size and thickness difference, as stated they are both made of pretty much the exact same materials.


I see the question has been answered. Just wanted to say that I find the hemp rolling papers much nicer than regular papers. They are lighter, have less ash and burn nicer. I’m not a blunt fan, so Ive never tried the hemp blunt wraps.


Thank again for the answer.
