Rolling Papers vs. Cones

If you're not accustomed to rolling your own cigarettes but still want to customize your smokes, you might consider rolling cones. Although cones are a little more expensive than rolling papers, they can be bought in almost any quantity and save smokers precious time and money. Although many purists prefer rolling papers, there are many benefits of pre-rolled cones.

First, with pre-rolled cones, it is easier to make sure that every cigarette is the same. In the case of legal smoking herbs, this can be helpful, since you will probably want to control the amount of your dosage. Even an experienced roller can have a hard time creating a pretty, lump-free cig and the results can be quite uneven. Pre-rolled cones are ideal because the result will (usually) always look the same and can be a good option for those suffering from joint pain and have issues with dexterity. Rolling a cigarette is a delicate and exact process, and can be difficult for someone with mild or severe arthritis. For those struggling to roll their herbs, cones can be a big help.

On the other hand, there are some definite benefits to learning to use rolling papers. An expert roller can roll cigarettes with a consistency rivaling that of pre-rolled cones. With papers, too, you can roll the cigarette to the dimensions you want. From an aesthetic perspective there is a certain amount of art and tradition that goes into constructing a well-rolled cigarette from nothing more than a pinch of tobacco and a rolling paper. It's true that it will take a certain amount of practice and that your first cigarettes are likely to be loose, uneven, and just plain ugly, but a well-rolled cigarette is something you can learn and take a certain pride in.

If you do decide to learn how to roll cigarettes yourself, it is a good idea to buy a few cones too, and smoke a pre-rolled cigarette for every three cones you smoke. That way, you'll get some practice without wasting too much of your tobacco or herbs on poorly rolled cigarettes. You may also want to consider getting a rolling machine, which is a nifty little gadget that will help turn your lumpy hand roll into a beautiful, ready to smoke cigarette. These machines are inexpensive, simply constructed (often made from no more than a piece of canvas and a couple of plastic rollers), and easy to use. This way you can get uniform, neatly rolled cigarettes without paying the extra money for cones.

Just like rolling papers come in a few different sizes, cones do too! The two main sizes are 1 ¼ and King Size. Pick up a pack of 1 ¼ pre-rolled cones if you’re looking to smoke alone, and a King Size cone if you’re planning to share with friends. Hemp cones are also a great choice for cone lovers to expand their smoking horizons.

What are the best kind of papers and pre-rolled cones to smoke?

Just like everyone has a favorite baseball team or flavor of ice cream, most smokers have a preferred brand of smoking accessories. While some less experienced smokers might not care about which brand of papers and cones they are smoking, the avid smokers know that three of the biggest players in the smoking game are RAW, ROOR, and Juicy Jay. Since everyone has different tastes and preferences, it’s hard to tell someone which flavor ice cream is the best (mint chocolate chip) but we can try to point you in the right direction.

RAW Rolling Papers

How to fill a pre-rolled cone

There are many contraptions that have been invented to help fill, roll, and pack rolling papers and cones. From gadgets like The Cone Artist which helps you roll up your favorite rolling paper into a cone, to the RAW six-shooter which is a nifty gadget that fills your cones for you, the smoke-filled possibilities are seemingly endless.

We’ll start with the basics and take you through the (surprisingly easy) steps on how to fill a pre-rolled cone.

DIY Option:

  • To fill a pre-rolled cone, follow these steps:
  1. Set aside the tobacco or preferred smoking herbs that you want to use

  2. Gently stuff the herbs into the cone

  3. Pack it gently (not too tight) using a pen or the poker from your Clipper Lighter

  4. Pinch the wide end of the cone with your index finger and thumb, then twist to close

  5. Light it up!

If you like using cones but have trouble with dexterity, have arthritis in your fingers, or just maybe aren’t very coordinated, try using a cone filler! Whether you just want to fill one cone, or need to fill a bunch, there is a cone-filling contraption to fit your needs!

If you’re looking to fill a handful of cones, the RAW Six-Shooter can load up to 6 cones with herbs! Being the King of cone smoking now became easier with the brand new RAW Six Shooter. This roller can roll 1, 2, 3, or 6 king size RAW cones at the same time. With a design inspired by an old Spanish millstone, just remove the pin and move the plate to roll 1, 2, or 3 cones at the same time. Want to roll all six? Just remove the plate entirely. Fill the holes with RAW King Size cones, add your favorite smokable to the top, replace the lid and smack it on a hard surface. You can finish them off by using the pin, which also doubles as a poker, and in about 45 seconds you have up to six perfectly smokable cones! The RAW Six Shooter also acts as a carrier for your filled cones, so smoke em’ all now, or save a few for later, up to you! Instructions are included inside.

If you just want to fill a single cone, no problem the RAW Loader is a simple and user-friendly way to get the job done.
