What makes legal medical marijuana different from all that 420 stuff with the bad reputation? Regulations, of course. Legal cannabis flowers and products have to come in packaging with specific safety features, including childproof and tamper-evident packaging. In addition to laws about how medical cannabis products are packaged, there are also very strict regulations about the labels that go on that specialized cannabis packaging. It gets even more complicated. The number of states legalizing cannabis for medical purposes is only growing, and each one has different laws about how it’s sold and packaged.

Who is regulated by medical marijuana laws?

Growers

That old baggie is a thing of the past, and legal cannabis flowers or buds can only be sold in childproof packaging that’s labeled with not only weight but the cannabis strain and other information. Mature plants get packaging too, and some states require growers to label all their plants with the strain and place of origin so consumers know exactly what they’re getting.

Edibles Producers

Cannabis edibles also have special packaging needs, including detailed dosing information required by most laws.

Retailers

Medical marijuana dispensaries are subject to a host of laws, and that’s even before you get to the sale of the products themselves. Many states not only have packaging laws for products, but also for how customers leave the store with their items as well, with some states requiring just opaque exit bags and some with more complicated safety features.

Processors

If your business processes raw cannabis for sale or creates concentrates for sale, then you have your own set of packaging laws you need to be aware of.
