For many smokers, joints or blunts are one of the most pleasant ways to consume cannabis. They are easy to roll, don't require a bunch of expensive and potentially breakable equipment, and they're a convenient way to smoke on the go. Joints can be enjoyable to share in groups which makes them great for parties and gatherings. They can be rolled to suit your needs which could be thin or thick, long or short, depending on your preference. This also means it’s easier to control the smoothness of the hit and how much weed you're consuming every time. But in order to create the perfectly rolled joint or blunt, it’s paramount that you have a clean, flat surface to help you out. That’s why we’re going over all things rolling tray in this article - it makes a bigger difference than you may think!
Joints and blunts are a beloved and pleasant smoking method for many cannabis consumers. However, like many things in life, they require a unique set of materials and circumstances to come into existence. For example, you need a flat surface to make rolling easier and catch any sprinkles of cannabis that fall out during the rolling process. The accessories used to roll can also be small and easy to lose. Items such as papers, scissors, and filters can easily become lost and scattered around a person's home. For this reason and more, rolling trays are a great accessory for anyone who likes rolling joints.
Okay - but what is a rolling tray? A joint or blunt rolling tray is similar to a TV dinner tray, but usually without the different compartments. They basically provide a flat surface for rolling, high edges to prevent spillage, and an area to hold cannabis and joint rolling and smoking accessories. For those who like to use larger work stations, there are bigger trays. These might not be quite as light and suitable for travel but they will provide you with everything you need at home. On the other hand, for others who want something that can be tucked away into a smaller space or used for frequent travel, a smaller tray might suit you better. Rolling trays come in enough styles and sizes to meet everyone's needs.
One of the most important aspects of rolling is to have a flat rolling surface. Next, you probably want raised edges to prevent spilled weed from falling over the edge. This will not only save you from losing a bunch of cannabis during the rolling process but it will also save you its equivalent in the cash you spent on the weed. If you’ve ever spilled weed on a carpet before, you know this devastation well and have probably been using trays ever since.
Rolling trays also come with a variety of accessories that can keep your weed in an organized state. Some come with pockets for the weed and others have areas to store any extra joints you might have made earlier along with any rolling accessories you might need, like papers and filters. Some companies even offer custom rolling tray printing that will allow for an image of your choice to be placed on the flat rolling surface. If you’re wondering “what can I use as a rolling tray if I don’t have one?” you can roll your joint on a book or table if you're simply looking for a flat surface. But there's nothing nicer than having an organized and dedicated space to roll your joints and keep all of your accessories together and in order. For those of us who love joints and like to roll in style, the rolling tray is the perfect accessory.
We wanted to give a special mention to the RAW rolling tray collection for consistently living up to our expectations across every model that they roll out - no one knows how to make rolling trays like them. A RAW tray is the closest thing you’ll find to a mass produced custom rolling tray since you can immediately tell they took the time to craft their product to a connoisseur’s tastes. Even the standard RAW rolling tray features rounded edges and sturdy material so you know you’re working with quality. Our personal favorite RAW rolling tray is the Limited Edition RAW Black & Gold Rolling Tray. It’s an 11” × 7” thick metal, rounded corner, raised edge, black and gold classic from RAW.
