First Rolling Paper Company
Without rolling papers, rolling a joint would be quite difficult. That is why it is essential that we first look at the origins of the rolling paper before learning the history behind the joint itself. In 1532, it is said that Alexandro Rizlette de Cramptone Lacroix traded a rolling paper for wine. The exchange happened between him and a group of French soldiers.
Many individuals believe that the rolling paper originated in France, however, according to history, it was actually in Spain. The Lacroix family opened the first rolling paper company in 1736 named the Lacroix Rolling Paper Company. The family, however, had already been mass producing rolling papers since the mid-1600s.
