A Guide to Cannabis Tincture Packaging

How you package and brand your cannabis products is essential to growing your business. This includes how you package your tinctures, as low-quality packaging can give customers a bad impression, leave you with poor design options, and even impact the quality of the product itself.

At Green Tech Packaging, our tincture bottles and other cannabis storage solutions are ideally suited for cannabis products. Keep reading to learn more about best practices for cannabis tincture packaging.

High-Quality Materials Are Worth It

No business wants to waste money, but there are also moments when spending a little more for better quality is worthwhile. If you’re in the cannabis business, it’s worth it to invest in high-quality materials for your tinctures.

Because tinctures are essentially cannabis that’s been soaked in alcohol, tincture containers need to be made from a material that won’t be affected by the alcohol in the mixture. Glass bottles and droppers won’t react to the alcohol in the tincture, which makes them ideal materials for tincture packaging.

Color can make a big difference when it comes to tincture packaging, as well. Your tincture bottles should be opaque, or nearly so, to minimize the effect of potentially damaging UV rays on your products. Colored glass can effectively block light from the interior of the tincture bottle.

Make Sure Your Packaging Allows for Required Labels

There are strict labeling requirements for all cannabis products, including tinctures. The tincture’s cannabinoid content, recommended dosage, health warnings, and other required information all need to be visible somewhere on the packaging. But if you go with cut-rate packaging, you may find it difficult to fit all the information you need onto or into the container.

Ideally speaking, you want the tincture bottle itself to be largely free of labels, as this makes for a cleaner and more pleasing design. You can put the required labels on the secondary packaging of the tincture while still finding opportunities for creative branding where possible.

Balance Safety, Functionality, and Aesthetic Appeal in Your Packaging

To comply with safety regulations, tincture packaging needs to be child-proof. However, you also don’t want to make your packaging so complex that it’s difficult to open, especially for elderly customers or those with physical disabilities. Creative secondary packaging options can help you strike a balance between these two needs.

At the same time, you also want your product to be aesthetically pleasing. Appealing colors, a clean logo, and smart placement of text can all help your product stand out on the shelves and boost your sales. Plain, generic packaging may be cheaper, but it could cost you in the long run.
