CBD and marijuana products have revolutionized the industry and provided brand new options to people looking for safe, non-habit-forming pain management options. CBD products and medical marijuana are now available in most areas in the US, and it has become a more mainstream treatment option. CBD has started to be incorporated into much more mainstream products. It’s considered to be much less of an illicit substance, and marijuana is now fully legal for recreational purposes in 11 states.

Accordingly, cannabis edibles packaging has become a hot commodity, and as more cannabis-based businesses enter the industry, the substance is being used in more innovative ways. Marijuana now comes in different formats according to the demand of users, and therefore the Cannabis packaging industry has grown as well.

What does Marijuana do?

Marijuana is a substance with a psychoactive element known as tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Depending on the level of THC the results can vary, but typically consumption of this substance through vaping, smoking, or edibles will result in a high, as the brain releases dopamine. This high is what recreational marijuana users are after.

Over half of the states in the US have now legalized medical marijuana and most other states are considering laws that would make it legal. Medical marijuana has been used to treat a host of conditions, including Alzheimer’s, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and eating disorders. While medical marijuana hasn’t been shown to cure these conditions, it has proven to be a very effective treatment for chronic pain as well as nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy.

The applications of this treatment are also proving very useful to target the following problems:

  • Reducing anxiety

  • Reducing inflammation and relieving pain

  • Controlling nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy

  • Killing cancer cells and slowing tumor growth

  • Relaxing tight muscles in people with multiple sclerosis

  • Help to stimulate the appetite of those suffering from AIDS or cancer

Why does Cannabis Need Special Packaging?

As with any food or prescription product, cannabis products need to be specially packaged to avoid cross-contamination or the introduction of bacteria into the product. There are quite a few variations on the state-by-state laws, but in most places, cannabis products must be sold in child-proof packaging that gives the consumer the details of what the product is, where it’s from, and strain the product is.

As cannabis products continue to become more popularized, more and more cannabis-based businesses are looking for automated solutions to streamline their packaging processes and keep up with demand.
