Packaging for the Cannabis Industry


Cannabis is making its way out of the fringes and into the mainstream. Medical professionals use the whole plant and basic extracts of the plants to treat a variety of chronic health conditions and illnesses. With benefits like relief from pain and nausea, people with debilitating medical conditions can finally experience relief from their symptoms.

Since many people recognize the benefits of cannabinoids and medical cannabis, states are beginning to legalize its use for therapeutic purposes. A growing number of states are approving medical use of cannabis. As of 2018, 33 states and Washington D.C. allow the use of cannabinoids and marijuana plants as medicine. Several states have also legalized the use of recreational cannabis, with new dispensaries opening every day to service this new and emerging market.

Packaging Cannabis

The growing market presents both opportunities and challenges for those who operate marijuana dispensaries. Of particular concern is the safe packaging and transport of medical cannabis to patients with a valid card. The loose nature of medical cannabis can make it difficult to contain and wrap, and make it equally difficult for patients to carry and dispense.

Pouch packaging has enjoyed an uptick in popularity for several reasons. It has flexible packaging, yet it also has a stable bottom. This makes it ideal for patient storage, but also for preparation and dispensary storage.

Pouches also have visual appeal because they allow for large-scale printing of a custom logo. Pouches with labels provide a flexible, economical way to achieve the same effect of a fully custom logo, without the large quantities or high price tag. 

Since dispensaries offer many types of products and formulations, pouches with labels provide the optimum balance of flexibility and visibility. In other words, you can create sleek, branded products that are helpful to consumers and your business operations without paying the exorbitant costs of other options by utilizing our stock pouching program.
