Child Resistant Packaging
As the marijuana industry grows with the expansion of state legalization on both a medical and recreational level, the demand for cannabis products has risen exponentially.
Modern-day growers, processors, and dispensary owners all have unique needs when it comes to packaging. With a rise in demand for marijuana products, businesses need to equip themselves with quality packaging that follows state laws.
This post is designed to educate readers on some of the existing laws surrounding marijuana packaging practices while highlighting the products that MJ Wholesale offers as a solution.
Before we give product recommendations, let’s establish some background information on specific state laws regarding marijuana packaging.
What’s the Deal With Child-Resistant Packaging?
So, what’s the big deal about child-resistant packaging? Why are there laws surrounding the topic?
Child-resistant packaging is designed so that it is difficult for any child under the age of five to open while still being accessible for people over the age of five to open.
The growing prevalence of medical and recreational marijuana presents a need for child-resistant packaging since cannabis products are more accessible and commonplace.
If you consider a situation where someone purchases a marijuana product from a dispensary and stores it in their home, a child wandering around could come across the package and even mistake certain cannabis products such as edibles for foods they usually consume.
It’s essential to be aware of any laws present in your state regarding marijuana packaging so your business can be state compliant. If you’re looking for an in-depth guide that provides regularly updated information on legal packaging, check out Leafly’s article on the topic.
