The United States is approximately 247 years old, yet Japan is several thousand years old, and in that time, for upwards of 1,200 years, the country was pescatarian to vegetarian. So nori and vegan to vegetarian ingredients are something Japan has centuries of experience producing.
When it comes to the best nori for sushi, please be aware that Japanese (nori) and Korean (gim) seaweed products are not the same. The way the seaweed is processed to the flavoring may differ such as being seasoned with sesame/olive oil and salt (sesame oil is used heavily in Korean cuisine such as with kimbap).
The top sushi nori brands by popularity and availability are Nagai, Takaokaya, and Yamamotoyama (the latter has the BEST customer service and the other two really do not have customer service). There are also various grades usually categorized by color (blue, red, silver, to gold).
The unroasted dried Jaerae Gim are only sold at Korean grocery stores but most Asian stores and many online stores like Amazon will sell the Kimbap Gim or Nori sheets. You can buy Nori sheets and make Kimbap.

Green grade, also known as D grade, is one of the lowest or entry level grades of nori. Green grade nori is often harvested toward the end of nori harvesting season, and may be noticeably greener in colour than higher grades. It is usually quite cheap with a subtler flavour than higher grades, so is ideal for sushi beginners and home cooks in general. These nori sheets, Yakizushinori Green Nori Sheets & Yakizushinori Green Half Cut Sheets are all green grade.
Silver grade, also known as B grade, is the second highest grade of nori. Silver grade nori is harvested earlier in the season, so the nori is younger and more tender. It will be very dark green in colour compared to lower grade nori. Silver grade nori is ideal for people who are more comfortable making sushi and wish to impress at home, and also for sushi restaurants looking for consistent good quality.
Gold grade, also known as A grade, is the highest grade of nori. Gold grade nori comes from the very first harvest of the season. This nori is young and tender, with a deep umami-mineral flavour and subtle sweetness. Gold grade nori is a dark green that's almost black, is crisp out of the packet but melts in the mouth. Premium Nori Sheets are gold grade.
