Cannabis packaging buyers have an extensive list of needs with important wants, and often too few solutions to their packaging problems. We are here to help. Our team of cannabis packaging pros has put together this list of three common cannabis packaging complaints and simple ways to solve them.  

1. Problem: Speed to market with ever-changing requirements. Packaging regulations for labeling & childproofing can change from state to state or even one city to the next. Demand from your client’s changes by the month. Cannabis companies who operate across multiple regions need more flexibility than ever, more than the packaging industry has known before.  

Solution: Find a packaging supplier that offers short-runs, common stock sizes, and custom labels. With lower quantities and quicker delivery, brands and retailers can order only what they need and label variable data to maintain compliance in various regions.  

2. Problem: Inconsistent or poor package quality. Your company has a stake in it. Inferior packaging can leak and make your product too dry or trap contamination making the product moldy. Many states regulate packaging requiring certifications to prove child resistance and food-grade in detail with thickness, opacity, graphics, materials, closures, etc. Your cannabis operating license depends on compliance and quality.  

Solution: Work with a local packaging provider. It is tempting to buy the lowest price and check packaging off your list but consider carefully what is at stake, and the cost burden to follow. Your best bet is to work with a reputable supplier in the U.S. who can keep up with demand, understand compliance, and have personal communication with you. Ask your supplier for documentation of Child-Resistant Packaging and Food Grade Packaging.  

3. Problem: Difficult to use packaging. There are so many products on the market and no one-size-fits-all solution. Sourcing the right type of packaging for each product is important. Customizable options for filling, materials, size, airtight sealing, and child-resistant closures are all common requirements for cannabis products, but it can be hard to find a supplier that can offer everything.  

Solution: Pouches. The ever-customizable pouch is the perfect solution to package every type of cannabis product. Cost-effective and readily available in sizes that range from single serving to bulk bags, and with a variety of sustainable materials or customizable features, there is a pouch for everything. Plus, pouches are user-friendly for filling, shipping, and dispensing, enhancing your brand experience.
