RAW Classic is all about the natural.The cone shape lets more tobacco burn at the beginning, and then less and less tobacco is burned with each puff. As your tobacco gets stronger and stronger, you are burning less of it. This means your first puff will taste the same as the last puff. These RAW cones save you time because they come pre-rolled, so you get the cone properties without taking time to roll it. They are perfect for people who don't know how to hand-roll as well as for experienced tobacco lovers who like to optimize their time. They are the ultimate convenience in rolling because you only need to fill them up with whatever you like to smoke, twist off the end and light up. RAW cones use a water-based gum that takes a long time to dry. That means RAW cones are rolled, then they have to sit for 24 hours before they can be stacked and packed. It makes for very slow production. Other brands use pure Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (Chemical glue). Their glue dries almost instantly so they can produce their cones much faster and cheaper. RAW's puducts are focused to quality and customer satisfaction, they rather produce a small amount of a great product than produce huge quantities of a bad product. The paper is a translucent natural light brown color. RAW is so thin that you can see through it. Each paper is watermarked with our patented CrissCross watermark. This special watermark helps prevent runs and maintains the smooth even-burning characteristics that RAW is famous for. Enjoy your favorite smoke in its purest RAW form. That’s the RAWlife.
