Many years ago the world was introduced to cigarette paper.
How long ago you may ask?
The answer is 2nd century BC in China. However it wasn't until much later,

The success factor for the company was their natural approach to the
manufacturing of their products, specifically the natural gum sealer that is
used. Made from a specific type of the African Acacia tree, the sealer tip is
a completely chemical free substance, with no additives of any kind.
Passing the highest known food standards the gum has neither taste nor
calories. This allows the paper user to experience and enjoy their tobacco
in it's most natural state.

television, and on the back of buses as part of a mobile advertising campaign,
the company was number one with a bullet. Unfortunately, the " Just say no "
80's put a halt to advertising but could not hinder the popularity of Bambu
papers. Today you can still walk into any convenience store or gas station and
find a fresh box behind the clerk, proving that the Bambu name lives on through
their reputation of their quality paper products.
