How do I roll my own cigar using your product?
Because we carry whole tobacco leaves, you would need to prep the leaves before rolling your own cigars. Some leaves are best used as a wrapper, and others can be used as filler.

You may want to use more than one leaf if you decide to go with this method. We will be including video tutorials on this in the future.
