Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, has introduced child-resistant, opaque tins for packaging damp and dry cannabis products. The new lineup comes in response to packaging requirements in increasingly widespread legalization of marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes in the United States, Canada and worldwide. Completely recyclable, the tins are suitable for a variety of cannabis products, including edibles, and are designed to enhance quality image.
Available for packaging volumes ranging from 50-500 ml, the tins protect flavor and maintain cannabis product and active ingredient integrity. They also are designed for safety: While the tins’ lids are easily accessible for adults and senior citizens, accidental opening by children or pets is deterred via certified child-safe screw closure. In the US, a prominent cannabis company began using Hoffmann’s tins in July 2018 to enhance customer protection.
For marijuana pain relief creams, the lineup of cannabis tins is complemented by Neopac’s child-resistant tube portfolio: Its Polyfoil® tubes, which offer long shelf life and label or direct print possibilities, can be filled with volumes from 3-150ml. The tubes can house cannabis products in the form of creams, oils, serums for topical application, cbd oil drops for oral delivery or cbd infused e-liquids refills.
All tins and tubes are US 16 CFR 1700.1 certified, a distinction now required for high-dose cannabis packaging in the United States.
Both the tins and tubes offer brand differentiation via shape and material variations while adhering to legislation regarding uniform packaging for medical cannabis products; some markets, including Canada, have existing laws requiring cannabis product packaging uniformity, while other countries are likely to enact similar packaging limitations and restrictions.
For packagers, a rapidly evolving legal landscape
At the recent National Cannabis Industry Association Show in San José, many cannabis producers expressed the need for plain, yet innovative, packaging amidst fast-moving regulations that, as the landscape shifts, may require regular or even impromptu label redesigns. As a result, Neopac has made its collection of child-resistant tins and tubes available as basic stock items in plain execution. They offer a storage life of 12 months before being filled with product.
US Partnership with fillers
Several cannabis industry distributors and contract fillers have already shown significant interest in utilizing Hoffmann Neopac’s tins and tubes in their product lines, having placed initial orders for trials and promotional purposes.
“As the recreational and medicinal marijuana markets expand in North America, we are positioned to serve the industry with safe, effective and regulatory-compliant packaging solutions,” said Mauro Merico, Business Development Tins of Hoffmann Neopac. “Hoffmann Neopac’s array of tins and tubes provide easy to fill and label, forward-thinking solutions for the burgeoning cannabis industry.”
