RAW (rolling paper)

RAW (rolling paper)

RAW is a brand of cigarette rolling paper used in the process of RYO (Rolling Your Own Cigarette). It uses vegan unbleached fibers, resulting in a thin, brown translucent paper.

RYO is popular as a cost-saving measure, as self-rolled cigarettes have a lower unit cost than commercially-rolled cigarettes. In countries such as Brazil, natural product rolling papers are very popular, and many people use corn husks to roll their cigarettes.

Although using unbleached paper such as RAW reduces the amount of toxic dioxins produced from tobacco smoking, the dioxins are only one of the many classes of pollutants that released from burning tobacco.
