4 Reasons to Choose Custom Packaging for an Exciting New Industry
By now, the secret is out that cannabis is the next big thing. The legalization movement is expanding at record pace—with over 25 states and the entirety of Canada having legalized the plant for either medicinal or recreational purposes. Entrepreneurs everywhere are scheming about how they can enter the “green rush,” with new ideas for marijuana-related business popping up with impressive frequency.
As more dispensaries begin to open, the demand for cannabis packing solutions continues to rise. As a trusted supplier of rigid packaging solutions, we feel it’s time to get the word out about the many packaging solutions we can provide to the cannabis industry. Read along below to learn why our rigid plastic boxes make an excellent choice for packaging cannabis and other cannabinoid-infused products.
- FDA Approved
Would you ever put food or any other consumable item inside packing that wasn’t FDA approved for consumer goods? I sure hope not. Cannabis is similar to food; you’re putting it into your body, so hygienic packaging must stay top of mind. Our boxes are manufactured with FDA-approved, general-purpose polystyrene (GPPS), which is an excellent choice for marijuana packaging. Polystyrene is made from styrene, a substance that also occurs naturally in foods, such as strawberries, cinnamon, coffee, and beef—making it one of the safest materials available for consumable goods.
- Keeping out Moisture and Other Contaminants
When it comes to storing marijuana, it’s imperative to provide some protection against humidity and other contaminating factors. The humidity levels within cannabis packaging are crucial, as they directly affect how long the products medicinal qualities will last. Our rigid plastic boxes ward off moisture and outside airflow that could otherwise reduce the potency of your cannabis—or worse, allow it to get moldy. By storing cannabis in sealed plastic boxes, you’re able to increase its shelf life so you can keep enjoying your herb without complications.
