On The Forefront

Atlapac, based in Columbus, Ohio, is a leader in cannabis packaging. In 2014, Atlapac began producing child safe exit bags for POS transactions. Legalization has continued to grow across the country and does not show any signs of slowing down. Therefore, we have continued testing with the goal to provide the highest quality packaging available. We now stock four sizes of child resistant primary packaging. In other words, this packaging line is aimed at assisting flower and individual item sales versus a bulk exit bag with an inner container needed. In turn, the goal is to provide an effective protective package for these goods while cutting down on the amount of packaging items needed.

Putting the Safety of the Children First

Our material is opaque and extremely tough. This is to deter children from attempting to enter the package. Atlapac then adds a press-to-close child resistant zipper. This zipper is easy to use and more durable than other options available in this packaging category. With the combination of specialized film and zipper, these bags meet the regulatory requirements in accordance with ASTM standards. “These bags are more durable and have a greater child deterrent factor than the vast majority of bags that are available in the child resistant packaging market. Let us send you some samples of these bags to compare to your current packaging and you will see why we stand behind our product” states Mike Bergstrom at Atlapac.

The Future of Cannabis Packaging

Cannabis growth potential is unknown at this point in time but one thing for sure is that it is increasing at a rapid rate. Businesses should take this opportunity to work towards proper packaging prior to it being mandated. Each state has slightly different requirements but in general, the packaging must: contain a warning of the products inside, not be appealing to children, be opaque with a resealable child resistant closure, and be accessible for adults. In addition, any packaging that does not meet these expectations will begin to be phased. “Businesses should value the safety of children over the easy or low cost packaging option” stated Mike. Needless to say, moving into 2021 consumers will demand more. They will expect that their packaging will prevent their kids from inadvertently consuming their cannabis products. Our goal is to be that piece of mind for our clients.
