Cannabis Packaging Bags Q & A For The Cannabis Industry


What size bag do I need for different amounts of Cannabis?

Unfortunately, one size bag does not fit all. As a cannabis dispensary, you have specific guidelines and laws you must follow packaging your products. In addition to this, and unlike many other types of businesses, your products do not always come pre-packaged. Customers often get to choose the type of cannabis product they want along with the amount they would like to purchase. This means that you will need several different sizes of cannabis mylar bags depending on the amount of marijuana bud/flower a customer wants to purchase.


As opposed to reusing boxes, glass jars, Zip Locking bags, and drugstore bottles, pioneering cannabis brands and dispensaries of today see a branding opportunity in creating custom-printed cannabis bags and packaging solutions. Not only do these custom-printed mylar weed bags strengthen brand recognition they also help dispensaries comply with state and or local laws. Some of these laws might include the color of a bag, that a bag is child-proof, a boilerplate warning, the contents of the bag, and the amount of cannabis product in the bag.


The first step in creating custom-printed cannabis bags for your dispensary is choosing the right size bag. Below we have created a chart that shows common amounts of cannabis flower packaged and the recommended bag size for this amount.

How long will weed stay fresh in a zip-locking bag?

After the cannabis has been harvested, it’s just like any other plant, fruit, or vegetable. The cannabis starts to degrade over time. Dispensaries sometimes use traditional Ziplock or poly bags made from low-density polyethylene. Because of these bags’ construction materials, they do little to nothing to regulate key elements of keeping cannabis flowers healthy. These bags are clear, so they do nothing to prevent harmful UV rays from degrading the THC in marijuana flower or cannabis edibles. Also, poly and Zip Locking bag properties do nothing to control the amount of oxygen and humidity in the bag, increasing the oxidation and evaporation of terpenes and cannabinoids, ultimately more rapidly decreasing the weed's potency over a small amount of time.

Using our laminated mylar bags for packaging marijuana flower, or cannabis edibles like cookies and candies, will keep the products fresh longer and maintain the cannabis potency. Our packaging and exit bags take into account 3 things a typical zip-locking bag, glass jar, or pharmaceutical containers do not.


Our Bags Control:

  1. The UV light Entering The Bag: Our specially designed mylar bags control the amount of degrading UV light entering the exit bags primarily marijuana flower and pre-rolled joints. Our cannabis bags helps preserve marijuana flower staying fresh and potent. To much harmful UV light, which causes THC to degrade, decreasing the potency of the packaged cannabis product
  2. Are Durable and Control Odor: Our bags are constructed of strong and multiple layers of laminate and mylar. This ensures exit bags will not puncture easily and make the bags smell-proof keeping the pungent odor of marijuana inside the bag.
  3. Controlling the Amount of Oxygen and Humidity Inside The Dispensary Bag. The multi-layers of our laminated bags work in tandem. By slowing down the cannabis flowers respiration process and allowing the diffusing of excess water vapor keeping the bag contents at the perfect humidity level. These two processes reduce mold growth and maintain high levels of potency.


Medical marijuana bags and packaging requirements

Currently, there are a total of 38 states, plus the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, that have legislation that makes medical marijuana legal to the public. These programs vary greatly depending on what state or territory you are in. Your state's program could legalize the entire plant (including THC) or could be restricted to just CBD. CBD products like edibles, oils, beverages, candles, vapor cartridges, and how other CBD products must be packaged.


Today there are few standardized packaging requirements and large variances regarding the packaging of medical marijuana can cannabis products such as CDB. Many of the laws for the medical packaging of cannabis follow the regulating laws cannabis dispensaries closely must operate under.


Some similarities between medical marijuana and cannabis products are that each state requires child-resistant packaging, packaging bags to have specific dosing information, and labels that are not enticing to young people. One difference for medical marijuana packaging bags is to have more disclaimers and labels copy. A lot of designers of medical cannabis bags tend to be more clinical with their design. This allows them to make changes quickly to the packaging to accommodate new rules and laws.
