Cannabis Packaging Guide: What size Pop Top Vial, Mylar Bag or Joint Tube do I need?

Want to know the secret to the most potent and fresh cannabis? The perfect packaging! How, you ask?

Isn’t it true that your joints, dry herbs or edibles will be rendered useless if they are not packaged or stored well. Not only will they break open, but will lose all their potency too.

No matter what brand the pre-rolled cone, or joint is from, it will not sustain if not packaged and stored well. The pre-roll tubes or joint tubes play a significant role in preserving the freshness of your joints. Similarly, pop top vials and mylar bags are crucial for safe dry herb or edible storage. 

This makes it very important to stock up on high-quality pop top vials, mylar bags, pre-roll and joint tubes for packaging your marijuana. Your cannabis-loving customer base will appreciate the good packaging and reuse it too.  

Important characteristics for Cannabis Packaging.

Before we discuss the different sizes of marijuana packaging, here’s a checklist of all the characteristics that your mylar packaging should ideally have. 

1. Airtight Caps

In case of joint tubes, the tubes must provide optimal protection to the contents, and thus must have an air-tight cap to prevent any contaminants from entering the tube. The pop top vials and mylar bags should have an air-tight seal too. 

2. Portable & Lightweight

The marijuana packaging should be handy, lightweight and portable so that they can be carried around in bags or purses. They should have a good grip for convenience and ease of usage. 

3. Child-Resistant

It's important to bear the safety of children in mind when choosing your cannabis packaging. Go for child-resistant certified tubes, vials and mylar bags so that they cannot open easily even if children access them somehow. 

4. Discreet Appearance

Go for packaging options that look discreet. Customers prefer discreet packaging so that they do not have to deal with unnecessary attention.  

5. Odor Resistant

Odor resistance is crucial to contain the smell of the dry herb, edibles, joints or pre-rolls within the packaging.  

Besides these characteristics, you can also choose marijuana packaging having different transparencies like opaque, translucent or transparent to provide more options to your customers. 

Now let us discuss the different sizes of joint tubes or pre-roll tubes, mylar bags and pop top vials that you can choose from.
