I've never been one to use bongs or pipes to smoke weed although I have tried them, as someone who smoked cigarettes before trying weed, rizla was a natural progression for experimenting with weed. The only rizla available at that time were red and short so you would need 3-5papers to roll a joint. Quite tricky when you're too young to smoke in the house and ur in the park trying to stop the wind blowing away your precious herbs, which wasn't skunk and needed cleaning before making said joint. It got to the point I'd pre-roll a couple before going out! Reds were thick and impractical, then came the blues!! Blue rizla was thinner and came in a joint sized pack eliminating the need to construct a paper big enough to build a nice fattie! I found that the weed smoked better without a taste of paper accompanying it. Admittedly, blues burn faster than reds but that's easily sorted by dubbing it out between blasts. I have tried red, green,blue clear and blunts and until the appearance of raw organic hemp rizla I was loyal to blues, I only use the hemp because of the same thinness and the organic factor, However I find blues still top them when it comes to roll ability, raw' are slipper and hard to use smoothly often resulting in a loose joint, but blues always produce the perfect joint for me so in my humble opinion they are the best quality for smoking weed with.
