Can Rolling Papers go Bad?

We Ask the Question: Can Rolling Papers go Bad?

Can rolling papers go bad?

Short answer… No. (as long as you store them properly)

If you’re a consumer of the ganja, you might wonder if rolling papers have an expiration date. In our latest post, we delve into the world of the roll and provide you with a few details on what you need to know about rolling paper shelf life.

With there being an abundance of brands of rolling papers in the cannabis community, there also comes a variety of materials they’re produced from. There’s rice papers, hemp, wood pulp, unbleached, flax and even Esparto; papers that come from the Esparto grass. What you choose, really comes down to your own personal preference and experience. Whatever you do end up choosing, you shouldn’t have to ever worry about any of your papers expiring. With that said, we did find that flavoured papers, do leave a less than desirable taste after an extended amount of time — that strawberry flavour ends up tasting more bleh than it does berry.

The truth is, moisture and humidity is the main factor to keeping your papers fresh. Sooo… which is it? CAN rolling papers go bad? Common sense comes into play. If you live in a humid or damp environment, then consider storing your papers in an air-tight container as dampness can affect the gum arabic; the material manufactures use to make the rolling paper glue. Your papers may become less than sticky when it comes to sealing up your rolls. Also, keep them out of the light for long periods of time, as they’ll become brittle as they age. (To be honest, we don’t anticipate many rolling papers sitting in one spot for a length of time and not getting used… but we should mention this tip none-the-less)

Long story short… keep your papers stored inside your stash kit or a dark dry spot and you won’t ever have any issues of rolling papers going bad or the gum not sticking. Easy.

from the interwebs:

You’re honestly more likely to expire before a pack of Zigs. My buddy found a pack of papers that belonged to his dad about 30 years ago. We rolled one up and it worked fine!
