By June 21, 2016Blogs

Deciding on a packaging solution for extracts can be a confusing process.  This article will help guide you to a packaging solution that works best for your product, brand, and budget.

Let’s review some of our options for extract packaging:

Glass

If you’re looking for a high-end look, go with a glass concentrate container.  Let your beautiful extracts shine in crystal-clear glass.

Works best with:

  • Wax
  • Oil
  • Crumble
  • Budder
  • Moonrocks
5ml Glass Concentrate Container
5ml Glass Concentrate Container
6ml Glass No Neck Concentrate Container
6ml Glass No Neck Concentrate Container

Polystyrene

Polystyrene is a good choice for extract packaging due to its rigidity and clarity.  The hard plastic is sturdy and protective while offering a clear view of your product.

Works best with:

  • Wax
  • Crumble
  • Budder
  • Moonrocks
5ml Premium (Beveled Bottom) Screw Top Concentrate Container
5ml Square Screw Top Concentrate Container
5ml Clear Screw Top Polystyrene Concentrate Container

Silicone

If your extracts are super sticky, go with silicone.  The non-stick nature of silicone makes packaging easy.  Word of the wise: you may want to avoid silicone if you use a butane extraction method. Using silicone containers to store products derived through butane-based extraction processes is not recommended as the two materials are considered incompatible.

Works best with:

  • Wax
  • Crumble
  • Budder
5ml Silicone Concentrate Container
7ml Silicone Concentrate Container

Polystyrene With Silicone Insert

Want the clarity and rigidity of polystyrene but the ease of silicone?  Our polystyrene option with a silicone insert gives you the best of both worlds. These durable containers are non-stick and feature a clear cap for viewing your product.

Works best with:

  • Wax
  • Crumble
  • Budder
5ml Polystyrene Screw Top Concentrate Container w/ Silicone Insert

Coin Envelopes

Coin envelopes are a simple and affordable packaging solution.  Use our parchment paper squares to fold up your product and slide it into the envelope.

Works best with:

  • Shatter
  • Rosin
Kraft Paper Coin Envelopes
Black Paper Coin Envelopes
White Parchment Paper Squares w/ Silicone Coating

Slider Tins

Slider tins are a unique option for packaging concentrates.  Simply slide the tin open and place your parchment-paper-wrapped product inside.  The top and bottom of the tin leaves plenty of room for branding and labeling.

Works best with:

  • Shatter
  • Rosin
Large Tin Slider Concentrate Container
White Parchment Paper Squares w/ Silicone Coating

Syringes

Syringes are perfect for packaging and dispensing oils.  Use the easy-to-read markings to package up to 3mls of product.  Add a cap to seal oils in place and prevent leakage.  The needle tip option is ideal for precision application.  Once you fill the syringe and add the cap, use a barrier bag to package individual syringes.

Works best with:

  • Oil
3ml Luer Lock Concentrate Syringe
Syringe Seal Cap
16 Gauge Needle Syringe Tip
White/Clear Syringe Barrier Bags

Branding

Branding in the cannabis industry has never been more important.  As more states legalize adult-use cannabis, more companies enter the marketplace.  As a business owner it is your responsibility to make sure your brand is known.  Custom packaging is imperative to the success of your brand.  Kush Bottles offers an array of customizable options for every budget and project.  Check out our custom design site to get inspired and submit inquiries.
