Markoprint Readies for Cannabis Explosion
On Election Day this November, residents of Arkansas, Maryland, Missouri, North Dakota and South Dakota will vote on whether to join the 19 existing states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Should all the initiatives pass, adult-use cannabis would be legal in nearly half the country.
The days of distributing marijuana in baggies are long past. There are many different types of legal cannabis products on the market, from oils to flower, edibles, and more. How you package them really matters.
Packaging keeps your product fresh and provides valuable data, plus it gives you great opportunities for branding. The legal cannabis industry is growing exponentially. Research shows the combined legal sales of cannabis for medical and recreational use is estimated to reach $35 billion by 2025.
Regardless of the product types you sell, there are many cannabis and CBD packaging alternatives:
- Glass Jars & Bottles
- Tin Containers
- Silicon Jars
- Plastic Vials
- Mylar Bags
- Chipboard Cartons
Manufacturers and contract packaging companies are required to code these various containers with information that identifies and describes the cannabis products inside. Using an intelligent coding system like Markoprint by AT INFO helps manufacturers stay in compliance with local regulations.
In this example, the Markoprint coder is used to print 5 lines of required verbiage such as batch number, serving amounts, UID and manufacturing information. The small, irregular shaped cartons are printed with variable information while flat, and then assembled before adding the cannabis product.
