The current cannabis packaging requirements in California and most legalized states establishes first and foremost that all cannabis products should be placed in a “resealable, tamper-evident, child-resistant package.”
Exit packaging, the packaging required by dispensaries to hold after-sale cannabis products, can save many dispensaries trouble if the product’s point-of-sale packaging does not meet these rules so that every patient, or recreational user come 2018 in California, may leave a dispensary with properly sealed packaging.
As January 1, 2018 approaches, these requirements may be redefined further, but for now, a safe bet for dispensaries to ensure compliant packaging is with Collective Supply’s Gen 2 Locking Bags. The opaque exterior and press-and-slide zipper fulfill these needs and meet ASTM and CPSC child-resistant standards. Even if the point-of-sale’s product packaging fails to meet the current rules, dispensary owners can rest assured that what leaves their shop is child resistant when they place their after-sale product in the Gen 2 Locking Bags.
As a rule of thumb, all dispensaries and cannabis brand owners should check their state’s packaging requirements. Refer to our post on finding specific cannabis packaging rules in your legalized state.
