Find Out Which City is Giving Away Medical Marijuana for FREE

By | Blogs | No Comments

free marijuana for kush bottles blogThe answer is…drumroll please… Berkeley, CA.

While some cities are going above and beyond to keep marijuana out of the hands of their citizens, Berkeley dispensaries are giving it away for FREE to those who can’t afford it. A city ordinance was just passed stating that dispensaries must hand out two percent of their products to patients who make less than $32,000 per year (or less than $46,000 for families of four). It will go into effect in August.

It’s an equity issue,” said Council member Darryl Moore. “We want to ensure that those who are in need have access to the medication necessary to treat their condition.”

If you’re a dispensary owner in Berkeley looking for California approved marijuana bottles, marijuana containers, or any other type of MMJ packaging, please let us know. We’d love to help. 

Don't Let the Price Tag Fool You: Why It's Important to Put Quality First When Purchasing Marijuana Packaging Products

price tag for kush bottles medical marijuana blog postEver heard of the saying if something seems too good to be true, it is? Recently, a press release was issued that stated Chinese manufacturing of marijuana bottles was superior to American manufacturing when it comes to cost.

That may be true, but the price of the bottle should not be the number one factor influencing your buying decisions. When it comes to the marijuana industry, what’s most important is for packaging to meet state regulations.

In a press release issued by PR Newswire today, Kush Bottles CEO, Ben Wu stated, “I am keenly familiar with the production quality of bottles and packaging coming from China, and I can unequivocally state that they are far inferior to the product coming from American factories, which use FDA-approved materials and have been independently tested and certified to meet and exceed the standards for child-resistance set by the specific requirements of Title 16 CFR 1700 of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.”

Vice President of Kush Bottles, John Kovacevich added, “In order for a product to be absolutely certified as child-resistant and meet the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and ASTM International (ASTM), it must be tested and approved in this country. Even if the made-in-China product was tested in the United States and then manufactured overseas, each time a size or mold is changed or a resin altered in the slightest, it must be recertified. That is simply not happening with the Chinese-made products, and this is putting dispensary owners in regulated states at great risk. The potential liability and tradeoff in quality is not worth the slight savings.”

Going with a cheaper model is tempting, but compliance with state standards should take priority.
