Cannabis flower packaging must be child-resistant, which means it must be designed and constructed so that children under five years old cannot open it. The packaging must also be tamper-evident, which means that it must be difficult for anyone to open the package without leaving evidence of tampering.
A clear indication of THC and CBD content
Cannabis labels should list the percentage of THC and CBD in the product. THC levels have been on the rise in recent years, averaging above 12% in 2017. CBD levels have remained relatively steady, averaging close to 2%
In order to list these numbers, cannabis companies need testing from an accredited laboratory. The testing process is important to ensure that products are safe and potent. It also helps create transparency around what is in the product so that consumers can make informed choices.
Cannabis packaging should also include:
-The name and address of the manufacturer
-A batch or lot number
-The date of manufacture
-Expiration date or “best by” date
-Instructions for use
A list of ingredients used
Cannabis flower packaging needs to list a few key things in order to be compliant with state cannabis laws. Here is a list of what needs to be included:
-The net weight of the product in ounces or grams
-The name of the cultivator or source of the cannabis
-The strain of the cannabis
-The THC and CBD content
-And any additives present in the product
The net weight of the product
In order to comply with state cannabis packaging and labeling requirements, every cannabis product must have the net weight of the product listed on the packaging. This is generally listed in grams, but some states may require ounces. The net weight must be indicated in both metric and imperial measurements.
The date of manufacture
The date of manufacture is required to be on the cannabis flower packaging. This is to ensure that the product is fresh and has not been sitting on shelves for extended periods of time. Additionally, the date of manufacture will help consumers know how long ago the product was made, and if it is nearing its expiration date.
The date of expiration
The date of expiration is one of the most important things that needs to be on cannabis flower packaging. This is because Cannabis flowers can go bad and expire just like any other food product. The date of expiration will let the customer know how long the product will be good for and when they need to consume it by. The date of expiration is typically stamped on the bottom of most cannabis flower packages.
The name and address of the manufacturer
In addition to the name and address of the manufacturer, cannabis flower packaging must also indicate the quantity of product contained within and list any active ingredients. For example, all Cannabis products must list tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) content. Furthermore, all packaging must be child-resistant and feature a tamper-evident seal.
The name and address of the distributor
The name and address of the distributor, the net weight of the product, and the statement “This product contains cannabis, a Schedule I controlled substance. Keep out of reach from children and animals. For use only by adults 21 years of age and older.”
A health and safety warning
A health and safety warning must be included on all cannabis flower packaging. This warning must state that the product contains THC and that it may be harmful if misused. The warning must also include a list of potential health risks associated with cannabis use, such as impaired judgment, anxiety, and paranoia.
The universal symbol for cannabis
Cannabis packaging must be child resistant, tamper evident, and label accurately all of the product’s ingredients including the amount of THC and CBD. Federal and state laws also require that all cannabis products contain a universal symbol that indicates the product contains cannabis.
