Cannabis packaging is a complicated topic. Marijuana has been illegal in the United States for so long that there are still many outdated laws and regulations. Luckily, cannabis legalization is happening at an unprecedented pace, and new rules are being introduced as we speak. There have also been some changes to the design of marijuana packaging, which have helped make it more user-friendly than ever before. In this blog post, we will look at three common problems with cannabis product packaging and how you can fix them!
Cannabis packaging is not childproof
The first problem with cannabis packaging is that weed pouches aren’t childproof. And while this sounds like a no-brainer, the reality is that many children ingest marijuana products by accident every year because they don’t have any trouble opening them. The most common solution to this problem has been using child-resistant containers and making labels more colorful.
Now, all cannabis packaging must be childproof so that children can’t open it. Additionally, the labels now come in various bright and colorful designs, which are easy to see for adults but much more difficult to read by children. This is an essential step because studies have found that “child-resistant” containers alone were not enough to prevent accidental ingestion of marijuana products.
Cannabis packaging doesn’t allow for discreet use
The second problem with cannabis packaging is that it can’t be discreet. To start, weed pouches make a loud plastic crackling noise when you shake them because they’re made of thick material which contains lots of air bubbles. And while this might not seem like a big deal, some people use marijuana to help their anxiety and don’t want others to know what’s in the bag! Secondly, all pot product packages must come with warning labels about possible side effects, which makes them difficult or impossible to disguise as anything else (like cough drops). The most common solution for these problems has been using thin sheets instead of bags and printing on both sides, so there are no warnings on one side where the drugs are being consumed.
Cannabis packaging is too expensive
Cannabis bags and pouches are expensive, and they’re getting more expensive as the industry matures. And while this might not be an issue for people who are going to smoke it all at once, many marijuana users buy a bag and store some away in the fridge or freezer so that they can use it over time. The most common solution has been using packages with fewer grams per package – usually around 30-60 grams versus 100 grams of weed in one container.
