Child Resistant Cannabis Packaging

Child Resistant Bags for Your Cannabis Product

Shelf-life, cost, material and protection are always top of mind when it comes to cannabis packaging. However, marijuana is often found in forms that are attractive to children. Your packaging should not only protect your cannabis product from things like oxygen and moisture, the bag also needs to prevent children from being able to access it.

C4M is committed to the safety of our children. It’s why we encourage child resistant packaging for all of our cannabis clients. From bags that are pre-sealed and filled at the bottom to tear-resistant packaging with a locking zipper, our packaging specialists will get you the perfect bag that balances child proof protection, cost, and safety. Combine that with your branded artwork and your cannabis products will be hard to resist!

Child Resistant Packaging for Cannabis Products

Child resistant pouches are a necessity due to state laws governing the sale of marijuana. There are certain characteristics that make marijuana packaging safe for use around children.

ASTM D3475 is a safety standard put in place by the American Society for Testing Materials. It outlines the type of motions, skills, or tools required for a particular type of child-resistant bag. All of our child resistant packaging have passed the standards put forth by ASTM D3475 under band testing condition. 

In addition to offering Child Resistant configurations, all of our pouches and packaging products are FDA-approved and are TSA free, BPA free and Sulfer & Phthalates free.

Child Resistant Zippers for Flexible Barrier Pouches

Children love to tear into pouches. However, if you present them with a multi-step process like a zipper or sealer, they quickly become distracted and move along to more promising adventures. A child-resistant zipper requires more than one action to open. For example, you may have to pinch the pouch and lift a flap to access the zipper. Just that little bit of resistance keeps children safe from accidental ingestion and small parts that could become choking hazards. 

Opaque Cannabis Exit Pouches

Opaque cannabis weed packaging and exit bags prevent visibility of the product within as long as the package is unopened. This type of packaging has been found to discourage children and adolescents from taking an interest in the product inside. A bonus to opaque packaging is the prevention of light degradation, keeping your weed product fresher resulting in a longer shelf-life.

Smell Proof Packaging for Cannabis Products

Mylar weed storage bags maintain the perfect internal environment for all types of weed products, but especially for buds and flowers. Mylar keeps both oxygen and gas from escaping in or out of the package, making them the perfect odor resistant bags. Smell resistant bags keep your weed products discreet, discouraging children from taking an interest in the product.
