Since the decriminalization of cannabis, commercial enterprises have stepped in for financial benefits in the arena. And, it’s not just the cultivators or retailers, but other auxiliary businesses as well that are enjoying the perks.
One of the most popular industries supporting cannabis trade is the packaging industry. Having said that there’s not just one type of packaging material in use. Depending upon the type of product, the type of packaging also differs. For example, for packing CBD oils and other extracts, an inert packing material is best suited.
Let us understand what are these different types of packages used in the marijuana industry.
Glass Jar Packing
One of the most common packages used in the cannabis industry is glass jars. Since glass is known for its non-reactive nature to a wide variety of chemicals, you don’t have to worry about your THC or CBD contents in the product leeching into the package.
Moreover, since glass is almost transparent, a clear view of the package contents is available in glass jars. That is why it is the most popular packaging material for cannabis and cannabis derivatives.
An important factor to be considered for waxes is the adherence property of the container. Since silicone is non-sticky, it is preferred mostly for packing CBD oils and concentrates. This allows the user to completely use the package contents until the last drop.
Additionally, the silicone used for manufacturing these jars is also a high-quality medical-grade silicone. This ensures that the chemical properties of your waxy contents are not altered. And therefore allowing the perfect flavors.
The aforementioned containers are primarily used for retail packaging. Not all enterprises are operate as a retailer. Therefore, a need for bulk marijuana packaging material is created. And luckily, plastic bags serve the purpose best.
Offering a great ease in printing and labeling of your brand on the surface, plastic bags are perfect for advertisement and promotional purposes. Furthermore, the plastic used in making packets for cannabis and its derived products is of food-grade. And thus, can safely preserve the quality of your flowers.
These containers are not so popular, as they increase the cost of packaging. But still, tin containers offer high-end preservation of your high-quality weed. Having said that, these containers protect your concentrates and other extracts from direct sunlight which can alter the chemical properties.
Some containers also come with a clear lid to allow the consumer for product visibility. Moreover, tin is quite inert and therefore also ensures the chemical composition of the contents. And they can be recycled.
One of the most versatile packaging materials, foil bags are being used for packing medicines for ages. An alternative to tin containers, foil bags are better form-fitting and thus allows for discreet distribution of cannabis.
Furthermore, since foil is impenetrable by moisture and light, it keeps your high-quality marijuana contents completely safe. This preservative property of foil guarantees unaltered flavors to the consumer.
Having known these packaging materials, you can decide which one suits best for packing your high-quality weed and marijuana derivatives. But before you invest in any of these packaging materials, please ensure that your packaging machinery can support the material and the load.
