As more states legalize cannabis, cannabis companies need to be prepared to meet the different requirements for each state. Among these concerns is child-proof packaging. Even the staunchest pro-marijuana advocate wants to ensure that minors cannot access cannabis in any of its forms.
Each state government dictates its framework for legalization – from cultivation to packaging. Even though compliance laws vary from state to state, child-resistant packaging is standard in every legal dispensary. States that don't mandate child-resistant containers; typically have provisions stipulating other cautionary measures, such as tamper-evident packaging, that need to be in place.
Most states keep a close eye on their marijuana industry. Retailers have to be incredibly diligent with child-resistant cannabis packaging, whatever the scrutiny is for cultivators and producers. 420 Packaging offers various childproof packaging options, from child-resistant mylar bags to child-resistant caps and everything in between.
Even if your state doesn't require CPSC-certified CR packaging, going the extra mile by providing cannabis child-resistant packaging builds trust and loyalty among your customers.
What is Child-Resistant Packaging?
Child-resistant cannabis packaging is a vital tool that helps prevent children from accessing potentially harmful substances. Child-resistant containers, bags, and jars for weed are integral for every cannabis business. Despite the different regulations for cultivation or production, every state has compliance packaging safety standards to ensure the safety of its children and residents.
It only takes a moment for a curious child to get into a potentially dangerous product. But whether you need a child-resistant cap depends on the child-resistant cap regulations in your state. In some states, non-child-resistant caps are allowed, but other states require child-proof caps.
420 Packaging provides certified products that undergo strict child-resistant packaging testing protocol to ensure that your business has the best, most secure packaging options available.
In 1967, Dr. Henri J. Breault, a Canadian doctor, launched the first child-resistant containers after firsthand witnessing an accidental child poisoning epidemic. He created the first child-resistant packaging that is now ubiquitous with nearly all prescription medicine vials.
Breault's ingenious invention has helped create safeguards for launching medicinal and recreational marijuana dispensaries. For example, CR packaging has been integral to allowing medical patients to access and ingest cannabis from their child-proof weed container without fear of presenting a potential hazard for children.
Congress passed the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) in 1970 to respond to multiple cases of children ingesting household products. The PPPA requires many industries to incorporate child-resistant packaging. The PPPA ensures no child under the age of five is at risk of ingesting potentially harmful products, like prescription medications or cannabis.
While child-resistant packaging is designed to make it difficult for young children to open without adult supervision or assistance, the packaging must be easy for adult patients and seniors to open.
To test the efficacy of child-resistant containers, such as dab containers or Mylar bags, groups of 50 to 200 children, not more than 51 months old, are given ten minutes to open the child-proof packaging. For five minutes, the children try opening the CR packaging without assistance. After five minutes, the children are shown how to open the child-resistant packaging. If more than 80% of the children can open the child-proof packaging, it is considered a failed test.
For the child-proof packaging to pass the test for seniors, at least 90% of adults between fifty and seventy years old must be able to open the package within five minutes without difficulty. They must also be able to reseal it easily.
Customers want to buy safe-to-use products. A child-proof weed container demonstrates your concerns for your products' integrity and your customer's well-being and safety. This attention to safety can increase brand loyalty, resulting in increased sales.

Why Does My Business Need Child-Resistant Packaging?
Every cannabis business should provide ASTM and CPSC-certified child-resistant packaging for its products. Cannabis remains federally prohibited, but the support for legalization, both recreational and medicinal, has led plenty of states to establish cannabis programs. This inherent legislative conflict makes adhering to compliance regulations imperative.
Despite the discrepancies in cannabis regulations from state to state, there is a common desire to provide child-proof containers, jars, or bags that ensure the safety of the consumer.
Using CPSC-certified cannabis child-resistant packaging has other benefits besides keeping products fresh. Many child-resistant packaging companies use technology that secures your products to keep them airtight.
Being compliant should be a primary consideration when purchasing dispensary packaging. Any oversight could lead to legal entanglements and could also endanger lives. Our child-safe packaging has a child-resistant certification to deliver quality custom child-resistant packaging to your store.
