7 rolling papers that aren’t RAW
Published on February 17, 2023 by David Wylie
Popular rolling paper brand RAW has been caught in a web of lies.
The company got spanked in US court after a judge ruled its advertising claims were deceptive.
Some of the bombshells:
- “RAW Foundation” doesn’t exist
- No funds or proceeds from sales were donated to that ‘charity’
- Their rolling papers are not “unrefined”
- The papers are not organic
- They’re not made using wind power
- They’re not produced in Alcoy, Spain
For more provocative reading, here’s the press release from Republic Brands, which brought forward the suit and obtained the court injunction against RAW.
If you’ve decided not to use RAW papers anymore, we’ve got some possible alternatives.
Here are 7 papers that aren’t RAW:
OCB papers are sustainable and biodegradable. They were founded in 1822 in France. They have an array of papers, including organic hemp, virgin, craft, bamboo. OCB’s commitment page.

Zig-Zag rolling papers are a market leader. The name brings to mind the iconic smoking ‘Zig-Zag Man,’ a.k.a. Captain Zig-Zag. The papers are a smooth smoking experience, especially the white pack. 10 things you didn’t know about Zig-Zag.
King Palm leaf tubes are pretty much what they sound like. They range in size from rollie (holds 0.5 grams) to XXL (5 grams). They burn slow and have a distinctive taste. The King Palm story.
Wolfpack is a designer all-in-one rolling paper pack, with a grinder, tray, and tips, along with the papers. They were created after the founder had a motorcycle accident and had trouble gathering all of the rolling materials with her uninjured hand. Ontario-based Wolfpack.
Herbiture rolling papers are made from pure rice, resulting in a slow burn. They’re thin, flavourless and come with filter tips. BC-based Herbiture’s rolling papers.
