INDUSTRY PACKAGING REGULATIONS
CERTIFIED CHILD RESISTANT PACKAGING AND REQUIREMENTS
Are the dispensary exit bags you’re using simply hard to get into, or are they not certified for child resistance? Here at Sierra Bags, we have put a lot of time into understanding the certified child resistant packaging regulations that the laws require. We like to only create products that comply with dispensary packaging regulations and rules. In July 2016, we were happy to announce the start of meeting these packaging regulations for our Child Resistant Exit Bags and a complete line of Grower Bags. We ensure that our lab in Reno, Nevada is fully equipped to monitor the required parameters that allow us to guarantee that your bags meet the child resistant packaging regulations which includes performing quality control analysis. Once they meet the dispensary packaging regulations, we can send the bags to production. We offer a pre-press, full flexographic service if you opt for a custom design of one of our child resistant bags. Our in-house graphics team provides outstanding printing results and are highly skilled in all pre-press requirements including color separation, trapping, and color correction.
GET TO KNOW DISPENSARY PACKAGING REGULATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS
While we don’t advise legally on the matter of child resistant packaging regulations and requirements, we do have a good understanding of the laws surrounding them. The packaging that we produce follows some of the laws such as: 4.0 mil in thickness, 100% opaque, continuously child resistant and for some states Tamper evident features, as well. Once our bags pass our quality control analysis, which includes Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR), Color Spectral Structure Analysis, Gas Chromatography Analysis (GC), Solvent Retaining, C.O.F, Seal Curves, and Heat Resistance. A few of the more important dispensary packaging regulations include the OTR tests, where we are able to test the rate that oxygen gas permeates through a film at specified conditions of temperature and relative humidity. Gas Chromatography Analysis is important, as well, because it allows us to separate and analyze compounds in the bag’s material that can be vaporized without decomposition. Lastly, solvent retaining means that we are able to test the solvent retention, making sure that our bags don’t have an excess of solvent retention, which causes the bag to either get an odor and/or the ability to spoil the product inside.
Our Child Resistant Exit bags are one of the very few 100 % recyclable child-resistant packages the cannabis and marijuana market has to offer. Not sure where you can recycle? Inquire within and we can help direct you to the closest facility.
With the certified child-guard zipper, Sierra Bags has developed a continuously child-resistant bag to ensure that the cannabis product only ends up in the hands it is intended for.
Following along the regulations of states, our Child Resistant Exit Bags come pre-printed with warnings, directions and regulatory accordance notices.
Not only do our bags come with regulatory compliant structures, but they also come with a high barrier, opaque film to conceal the contents from viewing for the privacy of your customers.
