What California Cannabrands Must Know About New Exit Bag Requirements

Posted by Bridget O'Donnell

With sales that began Jan. 1, the cannabis industry in California is in the process of transitioning to a state-regulated cannabis market, which brings with it a number of new rules and regulations for cannabis retailers.

Under the state’s new rules, all cannabis purchases must be packaged in child-resistant exit bags and opaque containers. The burden of this change in standards is falling largely on retailers, many of whom are struggling to stay compliant in the wake of the state’s rapidly changing regulations. The new rules require all retail cannabis that leaves a store to be contained in these opaque exit bags, a requirement also enacted in states like Oregon and Colorado.

Posted by Bridget O'Donnell

Why Child Resistant Exit Bags Help Brands Tap into the Ohio Medical Marijuana Market

Posted by Brittany Nader

After years of failed attempts to see the legalization of marijuana in Ohio – an important political battleground state – state Gov. John Kasich has finally signed a bill into law this month making the substance legal for medical use. This marks the 25th state to legalize cannabis, making it available to purchase, use, and regulate throughout half of the United States.

As a marijuana packaging company in Ohio, we are keeping our finger on the pulse in terms of possibilities for growth in this evolving industry. It’s not often that we get to witness, firsthand, the emergence and explosive expansion of a brand-new market, and with public opinion swaying toward the positive in terms of the benefits of medicinal marijuana, there is no doubt that this industry has ample opportunity to prosper.
