The Latest Cannabis Supplier Rules
Have you heard about the changes in packaging rules for dispensaries?
Failing to abide by the latest regulations means you risk being closed down.
Planning ensures you don’t lose any business, so keep reading to learn about the latest changes.
Child-proof bags, also called exit bags, are now the standard for dispensaries.
All products that leave the store must be sealed in these bags – which means your supplier should either package the products for you or provide enough bags for you to take care of the job yourself.
Exit bags offer a great opportunity to reinforce your branding and can be ordered in a range of colors and designs.
Chat with your supplier about creating a bag that helps you stand out while following the rules.
Got customers walking out of your dispensary with transparent bags of weed?
That’s a big no-no.
In many states, products must now leave the store in opaque containers, which don’t show their contents.
That means that just a child-proof bag isn’t enough. You also need to add a visual barrier.
The simplest option here is a paper bag, but if you want to get a little fancier, then look into boxes, sleeves, tubes, and more.
Labeled with a Warning Symbol
Many states, including California, require that every cannabis product is sold with a specific warning symbol.
It’s not enough just to create your own symbol. You need to use the exact warning label required by your state.
This requirement could mean redesigning your packaging or ordering labels to apply to existing products. If it’s easiest, you might choose to apply stickers to existing products while transitioning to pre-labeled packaging for the long-term.
Failing to comply with labeling regulations is a big deal, so don’t ignore them.
Pre-Packaged and Not Sold in Bulk
Do you currently sell products out of deli-style jars?
In certain states, that’s no longer allowed, meaning you’ll need to switch to an exclusively pre-packaged format.
This format can offer an opportunity to brand products more heavily, encourage sales of less popular products, and appeal to new customers.
Instead of taking the regulation as a negative, think about ways you can use it to benefit your business.
How to Choose the Right Dispensary Supplier
The best dispensary supplier will regularly update their products based on new regulations and individual state packaging laws.
The right supplier could make or break your business, so don’t settle.
