What we hear a lot is “What is the difference between tips, filters and roaches?” Cigarette Filters are usually made from cotton or hemp and filter out the some of the smoke & harmful tars as you inhale, but not all, this gives you a smoother smoke. Tips & Roaches are made from strips of cardboard that you roll up to use as a filter. You roll the card up into a roll and place this onto your smoking paper as you would a filter. Both a filter and a tip/roach will stop the end of the rolling paper from becoming wet and soggy, both will add added strength to the ‘rollie’ and give your fingers something to hold onto.
Tips come in various sizes in today’s market, from large filter tips to slimline filters. Large filter tips tend to be used by smokers who prefer a ‘fat’ rollie and will buy filter tips that are 8mm in diameter and usually 15mm in length. Small tips or slim tips start from 5mm diameter and these are for ‘skinny’ roll ups which will contain a lot less rolling tobacco when rolled up.
What a tip/roach won’t do is stop any of the smoke or tars and tends to give you a harsher smoke depending on the tobacco you are using, plus if you don’t like the taste of tobacco in your mouth a filter is highly recommended. There are a number of brands that sell filters, Swan being one of the more famous and OCB do various thicknesses and lengths available in handy re-sealable bags.
There a numerous suppliers of tips/roaches, Quintessential Rolling Tips is a UK company formed in the early 90’s and base their core ethics around a high quality product which is environmentally conscious and fair trade. They use an array of materials from chlorine and unbleached card to being the only supplier to offer 100% pure hemp tips. Even their packaging is made from vegetable based inks and only 100% natural glues are used in the process and is completely recyclable. A Danish company called Smokers Choice came up with a novel idea to produce conical tips which use environmentally friendly coated paper, these tips are specifically designed for blunts. Most rolling paper brands such as RAW and Smoking offer a range of tips as well.
