Using a rolling tray is crucial to ensure that you don't lose any material or supplies during session preparation. We're going to take a look at few of our favorite rolling trays and hopefully find something that you can add to your smoking ritual. Let's dive in!
How We Picked The Best Rolling Trays
Some might be reading this and saying to themselves "it's a tray, how can one be better than the other?" well, there are a lot of things that can make a rolling tray stand out compared to it's awkward and bland counterparts.
The most quantifiable factor for picking the best rolling tray is the surface material in which you'll be rolling on. Some people prefer the natural feel of wood when prepping everything, while others might want something they think is "slicker" or less prone to having dry herb or concentrate cling to it during prep. Metal and plastic topped rolling trays help satisfy this preference/concern.
One of the biggest factors in picking the best rolling tray is how it will fit into your vibe and environment. This is a personal choice that might be difficult to explain to someone, but everyone understands what it means. Having the right aesthetic during sessions can help some people "lock in" to their environment.
