Ensuring Safety and Compliance

Safety is paramount in the cannabis industry, particularly when it comes to edibles and other consumables. Packaging must protect products from contamination and tampering, safeguarding consumer health. In many jurisdictions, strict regulations govern cannabis packaging to prevent accidental ingestion by children and pets. Child-resistant packaging, clear labeling, and tamper-evident seals are standard requirements to enhance safety and compliance.

  • Plastic: Often used for flower and edibles, plastic packaging can be child-resistant and cost-effective.
  • Metal: Used for pre-rolls and vape cartridges, metal containers offer durability and protection.

Accurate labeling is a key component of compliance in the cannabis industry. Labels must include:

  • Product Information: Strain name, potency (THC/CBD levels), and ingredients for edibles.
  • Safety Warnings: Child safety warnings, dosage instructions, and potential allergens.
  • Regulatory Information: Compliance with state and local regulations, including any required symbols or warnings.

Hygiene and PPE

Maintaining a clean and sanitized packaging environment is essential. Workers should always wear appropriate PPE, such as gloves, masks, and hairnets, to prevent contamination. Regular handwashing and sanitation of work surfaces are critical practices emphasized in our training.
