The original Elements papers produce almost ZERO ash except for a small, thin white line because they used un-gummed, thin rice papers.
Pure rice papers have no chemicals, no standard pulp and no hemp. Elements designed a paper from pure rice and then pressed it to make it ultra slow burning and incredibly thin.
The newer style Elements are watermarked with their proprietary Criss-Cross imprint that prevents runs and maintains the smoothest burn around. These are some of the highest quality rolling papers on the market!
