Higher Standard Packaging Helps Cannabis Retailers Comply With Regulations

Higher Standard Packaging

Deb Baker and Barb Diner created their company  Higher Standard Packaging  one year ago to supply the legal marijuana industry with plastic containers and in doing so joined a raft of businesses, large and small going after the particular and evolving packaging needs of this growing industry.

Two years ago, a Colorado dispensary could “throw some weed in a baggie and send it out the door,” said Diner. Now a state government website specifies how to make the packaging compliant with the new laws including making the packaging child-resistant, opaque and bearing a warning.

The pair decided to use only containers approved by the FDA for food and pharmaceutical use. Higher Standard Packaging now distributes a variety of products including 12 sizes of BPA-free cylindrical jars and child-resistant caps that can be individually labeled to contain edibles, flower – a term for marijuana buds, and concentrates.  Clients can even choose to have containers made from an eco-friendly resin that comes from recycled milk cartons.
