Roach tips, also known as filter tips or crutches, are small pieces of paper or cardboard that are inserted into the end of a joint or cigarette. While some may overlook the importance of using roach tips, there are actually several benefits to incorporating them into your smoking routine.

What are the advantages of using roach tips?

  • Reduces the amount of tar and resin that reaches your mouth and lungs by acting as a barrier.
  • Improves airflow, allowing for a smoother and more enjoyable smoking experience.
  • Prevents the end of the joint from getting soggy or collapsing, ensuring a consistent burn.
  • Helps to conserve your herbs or tobacco by providing a stable base for smoking until the very end.

Are roach tips environmentally friendly?

No, roach tips are typically made from cheap paper or cardboard, making them non-biodegradable and eco-friendly in dome cases. By using roach tips, you can reduce the amount of waste produced from smoking materials, but if the roach tip is made from bleached basic paper, then you will be inhaling more poison.

If you use our Quintessential unbleached, roach tips in either standard, hemp coated or Pure hemp, you will have the best experience, and you won't be inhaling hot bleach. 

Can roach tips be reused?

While roach tips are designed for single-use, some smokers choose to reuse them by emptying out the contents and refilling them with fresh herbs or tobacco. However, it is important to note that reusing roach tips may compromise their effectiveness in filtering out tar and resin.

Overall, incorporating roach tips into your smoking routine can enhance your experience by providing a cleaner, smoother smoke and reducing waste. Consider giving roach tips a try and see the difference for yourself!
