Devambez and Sticky Glue

This was the pitch that I received today in the mail. “We are a small start up team and we just launched so your support really means everything to us! If you like this product it would be awesome if you could tell at least one friend (ha!) about us or share our instagram @stickyglue.co.
Sure, I’ll share your instagram and your passion.
What is the best way to discover if you like a product or service? I always say try it out. Over the past few months I’ve really struggled with the gentle art of rolling cannabis joints. You would think with all the time I have to figure out this craft, that by now I’d be quite the expert. Well friends I’m sorry to report that my cognitive skills have greatly diminished in this regard. While I can describe in often vivid terms the kind of perfectly rolled joint I always wanted to know how to roll, what I often finish with is juvenile at best.
That’s where Devambez came in. This French company that specializes in ultra-high luxury rolling papers made from the finest certified biologique cultivated materials and certified vegan, if that is important to you. But where was this going? They make the finest rolling papers I’ve ever come across, nerd level stuff, handsomely packaged with a grosgrain ribbon that holds the package closed, lovely tips (I still can’t figure out how to work them. ) and emblazoned with their logo on the flap. Gorgeous.
But I’ve been struggling with closing the sloppily hand-rolled joints that I can’t seem to roll. Until today when I received a tiny package that said try me. Twisting up a small joint, I discovered that the reason why my joints were a failure was because the glue at the end needed to be licked with my tongue. In the age of viruses that are quite deadly, the last thing I want to do is smoke a joint with saliva on it.

That is where “Sticky Glue” comes in.
I can sense the excitement now, finally my skills of rolling a joint are solved. It was the simple fact that I was soaking the edge of my joints in the wetness from my tongue. This product, Sticky Glue makes the gross task of licking your joint a task from the past. The other part of the Sticky Glue experience aside from the truly sticky quality of their craft produced glue, is their aroma. The glues are infused with terpenes that mimic cannabis strains. I thought this was really fun. It certainly put a smile on my face with the lovely joint rolled with Green Bodhi Genetics. Fruity, richly textured, bursting with juicy fruit gum and crushed stones, the kindness of the flowers intertwined into the lush background from the smattering of glue. It’s really incredible stuff and the aromatics add to my terpene soaked experience.

The best papers deserve the best quality glue to fully “seal the deal” just as the best papers are necessary to bind the whole party together in your hand. What a lovely way to serenade a frothing tropical storm, with a hand-held cannabis cigarette that won’t fall apart in my fingers. Thank you.

Rolling with Papers without Gum
Gummed papers exist since 1942 when Rizla acquired a patent to apply a glue strip on rolling papers.
If you read …the History of Rolling Papers you know that humanity has rolled for centuries without glue, then in 1942 the rolling papers come with glue and – accustomed to this luxury – we forget that you can close any rolling papers simply by using saliva.
What is the secret?
Moist the rolling paper well 2 times on both side along the seal line.
This way you can close any papers and you can even roll with a paper towel or phonebook.
To be sure not to write nonsense I just tried to close a glossy – slow burning papers – like RAW not using the glue and it works .
Let’s take a rolling paper, on this side there is no glue Moist along the red line Before closing, also moisten the other side.
The first times pass repeatedly your finger on the contact line and wait for the saliva to be dry enough before lighting. If the paper dries completely, the cigarette opens again.
This is because RAW is a slow burning papers, rolling papers similar to cigarette paper do close perfectly and remain closed.
With a bit of practice you can even …roll inside-out.
