There are strict guidelines in place for how companies package their cannabis across the United States, is your cannabis company meeting these requirements?
The cannabis industry across the United States is continually evolving and growing, and you must stay up-to-date with these changing requirements to ensure that there are no interruptions to your business. Unfortunately, ignorance of the law is no excuse, and it’s up to business owners to ensure that they are meeting their requirements.
Let’s check out some of the important factors that your cannabis business should be considering when they look at their cannabis packaging.
You need to ensure that your packaging has a 100% sealed closure and that it isn’t going to come apart during transit or degrade over time. This will not only help to ensure that your cannabis products stay as fresh as the day they went into the packaging, but also that no other contaminants can make their way into the package. A good seal should stay sealed and also ensure that the package is tamper-proof or that any evidence of tampering is easy to identify by the consumer.
While there may not be federally mandated guidelines on types of packaging or child-resistant packaging yet, it’s important to use packaging that isn’t going to be easily opened by children. There are a variety of different packaging options available out there for you to choose from.
As well as being secure, your cannabis packaging needs to be brand consistent. You want your clients to be able to easily recognize your brand amongst a crowd of other products that are on the market. The types of packaging that you choose as well as the labeling on those packages, will help your customers identify your cannabis products. People like to purchase brands that they trust and have experienced. It’s second nature for customers to gravitate towards a product which they have had a good experience in the past.
Country of Origin
Consumers are more aware of where the packaging their cannabis comes in is manufactured and produced. They want to purchase with the reassurance that not only are they supporting American products and jobs by buying products that are made in the USA, but they are getting products that meet the high federal guidelines on safety and materials. When you purchase products that are made overseas, you’re never going to be 100% sure about what chemicals or materials they are using in their packaging or what processes they have in place during the manufacturing process. The last thing you want is any unstable chemicals leaking into your cannabis products and then potentially entering your body.

It makes sense that if you’re selling a high-quality product, you’d want to package it in premium packaging.
