What Is the Grabba Leaf? HotGrabba, Red Herring Grabba or Red Rose Grabba. All of these terms refer to a dark, THICK leaf that’s usually crushed and blended with marijuana. A Grabba leaf is typically a darker and thicker Fronto leaf, used as fillers in cigars. Instead of using the Fronto leaf as a wrapper, Grabba leaf is crushed into a spliff and rolled with rolling papers.

Grabba is a term that is used back home in Jamaica for tobacco leaves that have been cured and are thicker than a regular Fronto Leaf, which you would roll a joint in. Jamaicans have been using Grabba leaves for decades and is very much a part of the Caribbean tradition.
