RAW is an American brand of rolling papers created in 2005 by Josh Kesselman. The rolling papers are made from hemp and considered to be the world’s first “vegan” rolling papers.
In 1993, after selling all of his possessions, Josh Kesselman was able to start a small smoke shop named Knuckleheads in Gainesville, Florida which imported specialty rolling papers from Europe and sold smoking paraphernalia. In 1996, Kesselman accidentally sold a bong to a woman whose father worked for the US government. Kesselman was raided and placed under house arrest. Later that year, Kesselman moved to Arizona to start a smoke shop supply and distribution company called HBI.
By 1997, the business was expanding. Kesselman met the owner of an old rolling paper factory in Spain’s Alcoy region who looked to create and sell new products. Kesselman joined and later developed two brands, Juicy Jay’s, which were flavored papers, and Elements, which is similar to rice papers.
In 2004, Kesselman made a $1 million investment to a supplier of natural, unprocessed and unbleached hemp fiber, which could be marketed as “vegan” papers. The concept was successful and RAW became the first company to offer “vegan” papers. In 2005, RAW started mass production.
RAW is currently among the most popular rolling papers. Wiz Khalifa dedicated a song to the brand, titled “Raw.” Mary Schumacher of The Fresh Toast recommended RAW rolling papers to people who smoke.
