Several brands of rolling papers

Rolling papers are small sheets, rolls, or leaves of paper which are sold for rolling cigarettes either by hand or with a rolling machine. When rolling a cigarette, one fills the rolling paper with tobacco, cannabis, cloves, damiana, hash or other herbs. The paper for holding the tobacco blend may vary in porosity to allow ventilation of the burning ember or contain materials that control the burning rate of the cigarette and stability of the produced ash. Civil War re-enactors often use cigarette rolling papers to make combustible cartridges for cap & ball rifles and revolvers.

Name Country Description
Abadie France (France 1840) pink pack. Originating from Bolloré (now called Republic) in France, there were also Spanish-made Abadie papers which are produced by Miguel Y Costas, as well as an Abadie factory in Vienna. The Abadie brand website has been removed due to French anti-tobacco legislation which prohibits the marketing of cigarettes or cigarette papers.[citation needed] However, Republic Tobacco still produces and markets Abadie Papers. On January 4, 2006, Republic—through their subsidiary—renewed the trademark and signed an allegation that they are continuing to use it; (trademark statement). It cannot be disputed that this brand is still marketed and sold in the US, without claiming that Republic filed a false statement in 2006 with the US Patent and Trademark office (which they did not). Abadie is still very much for sale in America and can be found at hundreds of specialty stores across the country (and in Canada as well).[citation needed] The Austrian/German Abadie factory also published a number of stamp albums, the main ones two large albums with 3800 stamps with coats of arms and flags, published in the 1930s.[citation needed]

Tally-Ho Australia An Australian brand of rolling paper distributed by Imperial Tobacco Australia. The packaging of the product aims to appeal to Australian patriotism, with many assertions such as 'Australia's Finest' and 'Australia's No.1 paper for over 60 years'. It also offers pieces of trivia on the packaging which again appeal to Australian patriotism, such as 'Australia's dingo fence is twice the length of the Great Wall of China' and 'Australia has more beaches than any other country – about 7,000'. The product is actually produced in Belgium. Previous to 2005 this was stated only on the inside of the packaging where it was normally not visible. At some point in 2005, packaging changed to include the notice 'Made in Belgium' on the outside back cover. Also made in Belgium.[citation needed]
Top France (France) in the United States, 100 leaves (not folded) per book; competes with Bugler and Rollit. Some smokers suspect that the glue of Top papers contains an additional addictive additive, such as sugar.[citation needed]
