Why pre-rolled leaf cones make the cleanest, tobacco-free blunts


Natural products are all the rage right now, but if you want a really clean smoke, look beyond the hype. Pre-rolled King Palm Wraps contain only one ingredient: cordia leaf, which is picked straight from the tree on farms near their Southeast Asian factory. Hand-rolled leaf cones offer more value than any pre-rolled cones on sale. The filter tips supplied are made entirely of corn husks, some with natural terpene-flavored pearls. That’s it – no glue, no additives, no BS.

The best part is that they smoke really, really well. They burn slowly and do not impart any flavor to the herb. The corn husk filters actively cool the smoke before it hits your lungs. Each cone is already perfectly rolled and comes with the perfect humidity along with a packing stick, no guesswork.

Finding a tobacco-free alternative to blunt wrap is hard enough, let alone an organic one. With King Palm there is finally an ideal way to package blunts that take care of you, the planet and your herb.

The story of Cordia leaf and royal palm

Flowering cordia trees have been a staple food in Southeast Asia, Hawaii, and other tropical regions for centuries. Its leaves were used as a dye and medicine. While the wood has traditionally been used for a variety of things – from canoes to carving – it’s especially popular for making dishes and cutlery because it doesn’t impart much flavor to food.

King Palm sourced many types of leaves when developing its slow-burning, pre-rolled cones, but the gentle, sturdy, and versatile Cordia tree was the only one that made the cut. The team opened a store in Southeast Asia and began partnering with local farms to perfect their natural pre-rolled cones and corn hull filters and shipping samples between the factory and their California distribution center.

After some troubleshooting, they figured out the best way to get their revolutionary new pre-rolled tenons around the world. Paper inserts hold the leaves in shape, while humidity controls keep them from drying out during transit and on your shelf.

An ethical stump

While some companies have eco-friendly lines, King Palm has built in clean and eco-friendly DNA down to the smallest detail. Their cordia farms only harvest the leaves of the plant – and they grow back quickly, making it an extremely sustainable crop. Corn husk offers a biodegradable alternative to other disposable filters. King Palm packages every wrap set with Boveda, the gold standard for two-way moisture control that uses only natural salts and purified water to get the job done. Even the included packing stick is made of bamboo – you don’t have to add any more single-use plastic to the world.

Minis or kings, flavored or not: there is a more environmentally friendly and cleaner alternative to blunt wraps or roll paper. Every King Palm product is subject to strict floor-to-shelf standards, and quality control has only gotten stricter.

After third-party testing has been stepped up and new farms built from scratch, each batch of product is in the cleanest state of health, free from unnatural additives.

King Palm’s explosive growth means you’re never far from a tobacco-free stump. In 2020 they even signed a distribution agreement with 7-Eleven.

All fully organic Cordia leaf packaging is made from leaves only and leaves only – no additives, no chemicals, not even glue. Once harvested, King Palm rolls and heals each leaf in its Southeast Asian farms before shipping to its California headquarters.

The weight of the leaves and the curing process give the wraps a cigar-like feel, just like your classic cigarillo in a corner store, but without the health risks associated with tobacco. The ready-to-use roll and the supplied packaging tool facilitate assembly like a paper cone connection.

A variety of sizes has something for everyone; Rollies, Minis, Slims, Kings and XLs contain between 0.5 and 3 grams of herbs. If it’s a very special occasion, show yourself off with the XXL, which contains a whopping five grams.

Each palm leaf film contains a corn husk filter, a GMO-free, natural alternative to the typical disposable filter. Like the wraps, it doesn’t contain any chemical additives – and they don’t have to work properly. When squeezed or bite, the corn husk actively cools the smoke for the smoothest pulling forces. They are also sold separately from the 9-millimeter and 10-millimeter wraps. Use them with blunts or backwoods for a more even smoking experience, and they are also great as a grout filter.

Flavored Corn Think of filter tips

Flavored blunts are a popular stoner pastime, but they can be quite sketchy. What is hidden under this artificial grape?

Try King Palm’s legendary terpene-infused filter tips for a natural flavor. As with all King Palm products, there is nothing artificial – just fruit-grade terpenes and essential oils in a food-grade capsule. Unlike a typical dull, flavored wrap, a terpene-flavored filter will complement rather than overwhelm the cannabis flavor.

All-Natural doesn’t limit your options, however: nine flavor options are Vanilla Vibe, Watermelon Wave, and Berry Terps.

What’s next for this pre-rolled tenon company?

King Palm is showing no signs of slowing down and has even more innovations on deck for 2021. This includes the first rollable wraps, a DIY version of the same natural ingredients. Similar to blunt packaging, King Palm’s packaging uses Cordia leaf pulp to create pliable, easy-to-roll packaging. Each pack comes with flavored filters to enhance your homemade creations.

Social media superfans on Reddit and other platforms have helped move King Palm from cult favorite to mainstream, giving them even more room to innovate while staying true to their natural roots.

With natural products growing in popularity and less responsible brands emerging, enterprise-minded companies like King Palm are more important than ever. Check out their full selection on kingpalm.com
