Top 5 Things to Know About the New OLCC Packaging and Labeling Rules

By | Blogs | No Comments

On June 16th, 2016 the Oregon Liquor Control Commission adopted new rules for recreational and medical cannabis.  Here’s our top 5 things you should know about the new packaging and labeling rules in Oregon:

1. Packaging cannot be attractive to minors

What exactly does this mean?  The OLCC specifies you must avoid cartoons, any design/brand/name that resembles a non-cannabis product that is typically marketed to minors, symbols or celebrities that are used to market to minors, and images of minors.

2. Packaging must be child-resistant

The OLCC states your products must be packaged in a container that is child-resistant as certified by a qualified third party child-resistant package testing firm.

3. The OLCC may require proof of child-resistant certification

The new rules state you must provide proof of child-resistant testing to the OLCC if requested.  Be sure to chose a packaging provider that has documentation of child resistant testing that is performed in accordance with 16 CFR 1700.

4. Packaging for concentrates/edibles/topicals may need to be resealable

If your concentrate or cannabinoid product (edibles/topicals, as defined by the OLCC) contains more than a single serving, it must be packaged in a container or placed in an exit package that is capable of being resealed and made child-resistant again after it has been opened.

Packaging solutions such as pop top bottles, or reverse cap bottles would be ideal for packaging multi-serving products due to the ability to be resealed and made child-resistant again after opening.  Products such as barrier bags, or concentrate containers would need to be placed into a resealable child-resistant exit package to remain compliant under the new rules.

5. Packaging and labeling must be reviewed and approved by the OLCC

If you hold a Producer, Processor, Wholesale, or Retailer license and are packaging and/or labeling products for sale to a consumer, you must receive approval from the OLCC prior to selling your products.

To begin the approval process you must submit an application to the OLCC.  The OLCC will begin accepting applications on August 1st via an improved packaging and labeling applications system.

If you would like a copy of the new rules or need help finding a compliant packaging solution, please contact us at hello@kushbottles.com or give us a call at 888-920-5874.  Kush Bottles specializes in branded, child-resistant certified packaging solutions and works collaboratively with the OLCC as a member of its Advisory Committee on Packaging.

To learn more about the packaging and labeling rules, attend an OLCC workshop.  The OLCC will provide a series of workshops across the state of Oregon to provide recreational marijuana licensees and medical marijuana registrants information on new guidelines for packaging and labeling.

How to Package Concentrates: a Solution for Wax, Shatter, Rosin, Oil, Crumble, Budder, and More

By | Blogs | No Comments

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.
