Not to be confused with stand-up marijuana bags, cannabis dispensary bags are the bags in which cannabis products are packaged for customers before they leave the dispensary.
All cannabis products sold in dispensaries are subject to restrictions. One of those restrictions is that the packaging must be child-resistant, tamper-proof, and resealable. Here comes the cannabis dispensary bag!
Cannabis exit bags are child-resistant Mylar bags that dispensaries give to customers as they leave their premises. They can be used to store flowers, concentrates, edibles, pre-rolls, vapes, or virtually any other cannabis product.
Most cannabis exit bags are made to be extremely durable, completely odor-proof, and heat-sealed for the specific needs of dispensaries. In most states, the bags are also required to be opaque.
Cannabis exit bags specifically refer to the outer packaging that a patient or customer leaves a cannabis dispensary with containing the individual items (jars, edibles, etc.) that they have purchased.
Some states require that each edible cannabis product be packaged in its own child-resistant packaging. Fortunately, if that’s the case in your state, we make custom printed child-resistant packaging for any size edible product, concentrate, or even flower (if required).

Cannabis exit bags have not to be child-resistant and sometimes kraft paper shopping bags, pharmacy bags are both OK to be used. Because those weeds, flowers, and gummies packaging have to be child-resistant themselves already. So it is still dependent and has to be checked with each state’s laws.
Mylar is the name of the material from which our exit bags are made. Mylar is less permeable to gasses, especially oxygen, and bags and exit pouches made from Mylar are opaque, odor-proof, and airtight. All properties are desirable in the cannabis packaging industry.

Child-resistant packaging was introduced in the United States in 1970. The Poison Preventive Packaging Act (PPPA) requires that products harmful to children be packaged in child-resistant packaging. A high number of accidents involving household, garden and automotive chemicals, as well as accidents involving drugs and other hazardous substances, provided the impetus for the legislative process. Since then, the frequency and severity of accidents have decreased significantly with the introduction of child-resistant packaging.
Testing procedures for Gozen Packaging child-resistant packaging are established in accordance with PPPA standards to ensure functional safety. These tests required 200 children between the ages of 42 and 51 months to attempt to open a package. If 80% of the population is unable to accomplish this task, the bag can be considered child-resistant. However, it is equally important that adults, especially older adults, are able to open and reinsert the package. Many other countries have followed the U.S. example, published in US 16 CFR § 1700.20, and have developed similar standards.
