We Reviewed Jas Prince’s Slapwoods Cigar Wrappers
There are few smoking experiences that rival the pleasure of smoking a properly rolled blunt. A good hand-rolled cigar burns slowly, evenly, fills the air with the aromatic tones of tobacco and dark chocolate, and produces a smooth, flavorful smoke. Done right, a blunt makes your smoking experience as much about savoring the taste of cigar paper as it is about getting high.
That said, rolling a good blunt is a real pain in the ass. Huge hassle all around.
When it comes to rolling blunts, you face many potential problems: finding quality tobacco leaves, grinding up a bunch of weed, and rolling it all up without dropping the product on the ground. Worse still, you have to take apart a Swisher Sweet convenience store (or a Phillies Blunt or Backwoods cigar) and fill it with your weed. Sure, it works in a pinch, but it’s wasteful and can cloud the quality of your high-end weed with chemical-tasting artificial fruit flavors or dusty dry leaf notes.
Luckily for us, we live in a time where smokers are spoiled for choice and tools to facilitate the blunt rolling experience. And one of our favorite options is Jas Prince’s Slapwoods (an ironic reference to the OG Backwoods brand of cigars, perhaps?). Prince is an entrepreneur, mogul and the founder of the Young Empire Music Group. More importantly for today’s needs, he’s a stoner — which is probably why his sapwood products seem tailor-made for a better smoking experience.
Let’s break it down:
Slapwood’s Cigar Cones/Cigar Wraps
If you hate the hassle of rolling blunts, Slapwood’s Cigar Cones make life waaaaay Easier. The cones are packaged three per pack and feature thick flavor casings pre-assembled into a tall cone shape with a corn husk tip strainer. The packs have everything you need for the perfect blunt – each cone is loaded with a Slapwoods insert which helps the blank cigar cone retain its shape and acts as a funnel for your bud, which can be packed better thanks to the wooden pick that comes supplied in each pouch.
The sheet itself is quite sturdy, without being dry, and can handle a dense pack with a lot of handling. Nothing is worse than ruining a wrap because you have rough hands. When I tried Slapwoods it was able to withstand considerable abuse.
Be warned though, you’ll need a lot of weed to fill any of these things, and I mean a lot.
I ground 1.5 grams of fresh weed twice and still had more room than I would like, but each cone can be easily cut or bent to fill in the gaps. This makes the wrapper perfect for sharing with a circle of friends, a loved one, or for a sustained smoking session for Snoop-level stars who like a long session.
When I finally lit up, soothing tones of coffee filled my immediate neighborhood (important to consider if you have neighbors who hate smoke, this stuff is powerful) and the Russian cream flavored cone helped add some notes sweet vanilla and earthy tobacco and chocolate to my bud, providing a smooth trail with a flavor worth savoring. The quality of the tobacco leaf is excellent, it is hand rolled in the Dominican Republic, burns evenly and never tastes harsh or dirty like lesser quality leaves.
Cigar cones are definitely worth picking up if you love smoking blunts but hate rolling them, but let us argue that Slapwoods Cigar Wraps are an even better option.
I know I just spent paragraphs applauding Slapwoods for making it more convenient to hand roll cannabis in tobacco leaves, but wraps are where it really is. They slap. Sold in packs of five in an easily re-sealable pouch, they are designed to lock in their freshness. You still get the same smooth, luxurious Custard Russian flavor, with significantly higher quality leaves. They are remarkably flexible, soft to the touch and incredibly natural. They feel like… well, exactly like a dried leaf, and if all you’ve ever had is a Swisher wrap, that’s a whole other world.
It’s like comparing a decent Jack Daniels to a Lagavulin 16. If you’re smoking high quality bud that’s really worth it and want a premium delivery method, you need to make Slapwoods Cigar Wraps.
The essential :
If you value convenience, grab the Slapwoods Cigar Cones. If you are looking for a supreme and luxurious experience, you must opt for Cigar Wraps. Either way, at the end of the day, Slapwoods ups your smoking game like few brands can.
