Nope, these wraps aren’t sandwich-burritos or multi-level marketing body wraps. They’re for smoking herb! Wait, we mean herbal blends and tobacco, of course.
Hemp wraps are basically rolling papers, more specifically, packaged blunt-style rolling papers made out of hemp. But they also claim to have some CBD in them and this has piqued our interest.
Time To Get Blunt(ed)
For quite a long time, the most popular way for recreational users to smoke marijuana was by “rolling their own” with small, white, clean-burning rolling papers. Made famous by Zig-Zag, these types of papers are available at pretty much every liquor and convenience store in existence.
Joints remained and still are popular, but a new way to roll your own emerged in the late 80s and early 90s. Legend has it that they were born and flourished among the counterculture artist community in the 60s, in San Francisco during the infamous Haight-Ashbury period. We can’t confirm or deny this, but if there was a way to smoke marijuana, it wouldn’t surprise anyone that those in the San Francisco scene in the 60s would’ve invented it!
However, the popularity of blunts exploded among and parallel with rap and hip-hop culture in the 80s and 90s. Rappers puffed away on them in their videos and dropped the word itself in their lyrical storytelling.
What Is A Blunt?
In cannabis culture, a cigar or “cigarillo” (Spanish for small cigar) that has been split, the tobacco removed, and re-rolled with marijuana, is called a blunt. Wrapped in tobacco leaves or brown tobacco-based paper, blunts are smaller than regular cigars but larger than cigarettes. Users would buy a pack of these small cigars, remove the contents, and use the wrappers to roll blunts.
The name itself comes from the Phillies Blunt brand of cigars, but they also go by the name “L”, or “El-P”, or “Dutch”, which are references to other popular kinds of cigars, such as El Producto, Dutch Masters, and Swishers.
Why are blunt-style cigarettes so popular? Well, blunts are larger and thicker than joints. They last longer, produce bigger hits, they’re easier to roll, and some frequent users say they taste better and “mask” the smell better.
Soon, the cigar makers just started selling the wraps themselves, sans tobacco, cutting out half the work for the blunt maker. They also came out with all types of flavored papers, featuring fruity flavors such as apple, blueberry, grape, and strawberry. Although some of the tobacco flavor is lost when you just buy wraps, their convenience makes them popular to this day.
Wraps have also evolved, with new wraps made out of organic hemp being made available the last few years. These brands pride themselves on creating tobacco-free, organic wraps that contain zero traces of nicotine, tobacco, or toxic additives.
Using sustainably grown European hemp and an herb formulation, these companies have filled a nice little niche for the perfect tobaccoless wrap.
One thing you notice when you open up a pack of organic hemp wraps (which come inside a foil pouch with two wraps and two filters, the latter being a surprisingly nice touch) is that the packaging clearly calls out that this product contains CBD. Copy on the package reads “CBD+”. Hmmmm, a plus sign. What does that mean? Nowhere else on the packaging is any CBD info found, so we went to their website looking for answers. Here’s what they said:
“An exciting attribute found within our wraps are the naturally occurring CBD’s, making our wraps CBD positive. Please keep in mind our hemp wraps are NOT infused with CBD. Unlike any other hemp wrap in the market, we tested the composition of our wraps and results show it is CBD positive (CBD+).”
CBD positive, eh? That’s some spin we can get behind! It does make you wonder though, how much CBD is actually in these wraps? Well, the manufacturer must get this question quite a bit, because, under their FAQ section, they have test results showing that very thing.
According to their own tests and pie charts, CBD makes up about 10% of the cannabinoids in their wraps, and the CBD content in each wrap is .05 mg. In our opinion, that’s a pretty small amount, certainly not enough to get a daily serving from. These hemp wraps are fine to enjoy and use, but please don’t think you’re getting a significant amount of CBD per puff.
However, we have to hand it to these wrap makers: it’s a heckuva marketing idea! At the end of the day, they are being truthful in that their product does contain some CBD, and some is better than none.
Their wraps are organic and they are made from hemp, which we’ve got to admit, is a pretty cool idea. After viewing a few YouTube reviews of the wraps, it seems like users think it’s a cool idea, too. They liked how evenly it burned, how it tasted, and seemed to appreciate that it was an all-natural, organic way to smoke.
