Ran out of papers? Here's what you should and should not use instead

Posted on July 27 2017

We’ve all been there, we’ve all been found lacking when it comes to something needed to roll a spliff. Many a time it may be tobacco, however, you can remedy this by rolling it pure. Often it could be roach card, yet, just about anything can be used as roach providing its made of cardboard which many things are. You are only really well and truly fucked if you don’t have a paper to roll your weed in, that is unless you don’t have any weed at which point just don’t bother or buy some. Not having a paper can be the be all and end all of your evening providing, of course, you do not have a bong or vaporizers, or any sort of pipe in which to consume your marijuana. Many people don’t so I’m gonna briefly go all Bear Grylls/Ray Mears on you and give you some ideas pertaining to the best and worst choice of paper/rizla substitute.

Best - Bus Ticket

The main issue with a bus ticket is the fact it doesn’t have a gum line, which admittedly is a bit of a bastard, however, with a lot of salivae this can be remedied. Providing you don’t mind smoking whatever chemicals go into making a bus ticket, a bus ticket is just like a very thick Rizla with a couple of floors. Alongside the aforementioned lack of gum line, bus tickets often tend to be small, however, if you do have a large one say two tickets in one or a ticket alongside a receipt you are in luck but if not then you’re in for a very small spliff.

Worst - Tissue or Toilet Roll

I’m sure I don’t need to explain why this is a bad idea, however, for the sake of comparison I will. You may think paper is paper in any form, but bear in mind that tissue and toilet paper is just way too flimsy, being made up of two or three layers of extremely thin paper. Even if you did succeed in the herculean task of actually rolling a joint in tissue, you would likely regret this as soon as you sparked the joint.

    I’ve heard, and myself have done this as well, if you have a chewing gum wrapper with the foil, try peeling the foil from the paper, and use that as well. Works great! Cheers! Waiting for my seeds to arrive!
