HBI's founder, inspired by his father's love for rolling his own smokes, created Elements Rolling Papers. These pure rice papers, free from chemicals, pulp, or hemp, burn with virtually zero ash. In response to a market trend favoring hemp papers, HBI chose to prioritize the fundamental "ELEMENTS" of smoking. Their paper is crafted from pure rice, pressed for an ultra-slow burn, and thinness. A thin strip of natural sugar gum is added, resulting in what is considered one of the best rolling papers, burning with minimal ash, except for a small line from the sugar gum caramelizing as it burns.
