eBottles.com is now stocking child resistant marijuana bud jars in Denver. Recreational (and medicinal marijuana dispensaries) are trying to answer customer demand and follow US mandates to provide child resistant packaging. Child-safe bags or bottles can cost up to 10 times more than the typical package. eBottles.com offers affordable HDPE and PP jars with child-safe caps.
Newly launched dispensaries are putting pressure on the packaging suppliers to meet demand. While the focus is in Colorado and Washington with recreational pot shops, the new legislation could impact as many as 20 states with medical marijuana laws.
Preventing Unintentional Ingestion of Marijuana by Children, published in August 2013, provided a health impact assessment of child resistant packaging regulations in the context of the new recreational legislation. The assessment was a joint effort between the Pediatric Injury Prevention Education and Research Program at the Colorado School of Public Health and the Children's Health Advocacy Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado.
The committee made the following recommendations: "All retail marijuana and marijuana products should leave retail establishments in child-resistant packaging as defined by ASTM International and the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970 (PPPA)." They also recommended the packages should be opaque, re-closeable, and re-useable. These recommendations are now mandates via marijuana packaging legislation.
eBottles.com and Bottles.com now offer opaque child-safe jars compliant with Poison Prevention Packaging legislation. The company's Denver, Colorado distribution center will offer available stock, quick shipping or local pickup to the dispensaries seeking a cost-effective edge.
eBottles.com offers top-end products from US, Asia, and Europe manufacturers. With multiple distribution centers in the US, eBottles can ship most orders within 24 hours. eBottles headquarters is based in Jupiter, Florida. Distribution centers are located in Bethel, CT, Denver, CO, and Los Angeles, CA.
