What goes into great cannabis labels?

The rise of cannabis legalization has made it an industry to pay attention to. Investors and entrepreneurs are excited about this emerging opportunity and so are label providers.

There is a world of new sales opportunities for label and packaging distributors and PaladinID can help. Our specialities include helping new businesses set up their labeling process with the right equipment and supplies. We also help existing companies update their labeling processes, automate where it makes sense, and research the best options and materials they need.

This includes:

Cannabis Labels Need to Look Great!

The WOW factor on labels is huge in some industries and cannabis labels are no exception. Some consumers will buy a product solely based on the label. This is especially true if there are a lot of options to choose from. Think about walking into a wine store and not really knowing a whole lot about wine. You might like red. You might like white, but you will mostly pick one based on the cool label. This is true for cannabis products as well.

Custom cannabis labels are very important. Choosing the right label partner is also very important. You will need the option to order pre-printed labels as well as an in-house way to print shorter runs with variable data.

Things to Consider with Cannabis Labels

Cannabis and CBD are consumable products so there are rules regarding how they are sold and there are packaging guidelines to adhere to. The rules vary between states for both medical and recreational cannabis.

However, there are a few guidelines that all cannabis manufacturers and retailers should follow:

  • Date
  • Weight
  • Ingredients
  • Potency
  • Manufacturer information
  • Symbols and Type
  • Directions for use
  • Warnings
  • Prop 65 (California)

Track and Trace & RFID for Cannabis Labels

Consumers want to be assured that your products are trustworthy, reputable, regulated, and safe. One of the best ways to provide this assurance and set yourself apart from other cannabis providers is with Track and Trace technology and RFID.

Your industry is full of fake products and misrepresentation. When dealing with health-related products this can literally feel like a life or death situation. In some cases, it might be.

Track and trace monitors individual products during the entire process and supply chain. From growth to sales. Your consumers will have the peace of mind of knowing exactly when and how your products where grown, manufactured, and transported.

RFID streamlines track and trace capabilities by quickly and accurately monitoring operations, proving chain-of-custody transactions, and eliminating time-consuming manual processes.

This is an in-demand added service for the cannabis industry and one we highly recommend.
