CBD Packaging V2
CBD Packaging – My CBD Cert Resources
Packaging CBD products is an art. Companies have ensured the right package for the right product to maintain integrity and shelf life. For instance, gummies need the right package so don’t stick together. Flower needs to be packaged correctly so it does not mold. Oils and creams need the right pump or delivery mechanism so they apply correctly. To package correctly can be an expensive proposition and for companies a challenge to source. Packing is a part of the cost of goods sold and for quality products that package well the price can be affected. So, for CBD like anything, sometimes you get what you pay for. Packaging can come in the form of plastic, glass, pouches, pens for vaping, pre-rolls in tubes, and a wide variety of options. Application of the content can be in the form of stickers or printed on a package which is more professional and of course more expensive.
There are rules about what you can and can not say in marketing CBD products. There is usually not a lot of room for promotional content but be aware of products that claim they solve certain health considerations.
What product or medication are you referring to? The standard warnings for children and pregnant women can vary depending on the product. Here are some examples of standard warnings:
- Do not give this product to children under the age of 12.
- Keep out of reach of children.
- If swallowed, get medical help immediately.
- Pregnant women:
- Consult your doctor before using this product if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
- This product may not be safe for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
- There is a risk of birth defects if this product is used during pregnancy.
It is important to always read the label of any product carefully before using it, especially if you are pregnant or have children. The label will have the most up-to-date information on the safety of the product for children and pregnant women.
Here are some additional tips for pregnant women:
- Talk to your doctor about any medications or supplements you are taking.
- Be aware of the risks of exposure to chemicals and pollutants.
- Eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise.
- Get enough rest.
Labeling requirements are on a state-by-state basis. Some states permit the sale of CBD in foods and dietary supplements but require specific label information and warning requirements. For Instance,
Florida requires items for all food-related CBD. A good article addresses Florida considerations:
Third-party testing results of CBD products are the best way to ensure quality. The process is QR codes on the packaging that leads to a (Q10) COA (Certificate of Authenticity). There is a wealth of technical information. However, there are two main considerations: what’s in the product and what’s not. For Instance, how much THC if any, how much CBD (and other cannabinoids), and what’s not in it (hopefully) like heavy metals and pesticides. There is a lot of bad CBD out there. If there is no QR code and corresponding testing result, steer clear. The process of managing and updating can be a cumbersome process but it’s the best way to keep consumers educated and hopefully quality CBD products that adhere to standards rise to the top.
