Labeling is a vital aspect of product packaging. Without labels, you wouldn’t be able to tell what a product is, check facts about ingredients or components, review nutrition information or scan it at check-out. THC and related products are no different. Here are five facts about THC stickers and labels.
1. There Are Many Options Available
THC labels come in many forms. One of the most common types of labels is the sticker. Stickers are able to be easily applied to multiple types of products, so they’re useful investments for small businesses and independent sellers. You may choose between clear and opaque stickers. Other types of packaging labels include foil labels, writeable labels and labels printed directly on the product’s packaging.
2. Tamper-Evident Labels Are Useful
Tamper-proof and tamper-evident labels are incredibly useful across many industries and markets. Tamper-proof packaging means it’s difficult or impossible to open without having purchased the product. Tamper-evident packaging isn’t as hard to force open, but is designed so that it is obvious the product has been opened and may have been tampered with. For example, when a tamper-evident seal is broken, it will be obvious by sight or feel to the next person who opens the product.
3. Requirements And Regulations May Vary By Jurisdiction
Labeling is one aspect of packaging, which means it’s subject to packaging requirements and regulations. Regulations and requirements can differ vastly between jurisdictions, so it’s important that you’re aware of your jurisdiction’s laws surrounding packaging so you can ensure your business complies with them. For example, in California, THC packaging must be child-resistant, tamper-evident and visibly labeled. Your labels must have both a primary panel and an informational one.
4. It Can Be a Good Idea To Design Custom Labels
If you are an independent seller or run a small business, it may be beneficial for you to design custom labels. Custom labels offer an opportunity to market and advertise your business on your products themselves. If you want to use custom labels, you should include your company logo and other appropriate branding. The labels should also be appropriate sizes and shapes for each product.
5. Your Labels Should Match Your Product
Many THC and related products exist. There is no one type of label that can be used for every product or type of packaging. Different products may have different sizes or shapes and will require different sized and shaped labels as a result. Each product will have different informational requirements. For example, labels for THC gummies will need to include nutritional and ingredient information about the gummies in addition to information about the THC content, whereas marijuana flowers may require less informational packaging.
There are many things you need to keep in mind when choosing packaging for a THC product. It needs to contain all the necessary product information and follow the regulations of the jurisdiction in which you’re selling or distributing it. You may also want it to advertise your brand and be able to show evidence of potential tampering.
