Looking back many years ago HBI's founder remembered seeing his father taking great pleasure in rolling his own smokes. He always used ungummed thin rice papers because they burn with almost ZERO ash. Pure rice papers are just that, NO chemicals, NO pulp, and NO hemp. Over the past decade we have watched more and more companies jump into the Hemp Paper market and we saw that most new brands were trying to ride a marketing wave. They relied mostly on marketing and catchy names to sell their products, rather then the quality of the actual paper. To counter the trend, and as a dedication to fond memories of the past, we decided to return to the "ELEMENTS" of smoking. Thus we designed a paper made from pure rice, pressed it to make it ultra slow burning and incredibly thin. Then we added just a thin strip of natural gum from sugar. The result is probably the best Rolling Papers ever produced by man. Elements® burn with zero ash, except for a tiny line caused by the sugar gum turning into caramel as it burns.
