Q: What is a Child Resistant Container?

Q: What is an “Air Tight Container” and why is it important for packaging marijuana?
A: An Air Tight container is a container that does not let air in or out. Marijuana products produce a strong herb smell and are subject to drying out and losing their freshness. Common packaging like vials or linerless closures are unable to create an airtight seal that maintains the freshness of the product as well as contain the odor. MJbottles.com offers airtight packaging that will keep marijuana product lasting longer and eliminates the odor while it is stored.
Q: What is ASTM and why is it important for marijuana packaging?
A: ASTM, or the American Society for Testing and Materials, is an international standards organization that develops and publishes technical standards for a wide range of materials. States often require that marijuana be packaged in “ASTM certified” containers. This is misleading as ASTM refers to the standards under which a package’s material was tested.
Q: What are my state’s requirements for packaging marijuana?
A: Requirements on marijuana packaging can vary by state, and by country. General information on medicinal cannabis is often found within the state’s Department of Health website. Recreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado and Washington. Information on their packaging requirements can be found at the following sites: Colorado: http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/Rev-MMJ/CBON/1251592984795 Washington: http://app.leg.wa.gov/WAC/default.aspx?cite=314-55-105 The team at MJbottles.com has experience with current packaging requirements.

Q: What are Canadian requirements for packaging marijuana?
A: The producer must ensure that the Marijuana is packaged in a manner that keeps it dry, has a tamper evident feature and meets the requirements of child resistant packaging. http://www.laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/SOR-2013-119/
Q: What is an “Exit Bag”?
A: An Exit Bag is a plastic pouch that has a recloseable child resistant mechanism. The use of an exit bag makes it easy for the dispensary to comply with the child resistant mandate as any purchased items including marijuana infused products and concentrates can simply be placed in the bag. The downside to an exit bag is that once the products are removed from the bag at home they are no longer child resistant.
