S-One Labels & Packaging has released a free cannabis resource guide to help label and flexible packaging converters navigate the emerging legal cannabis market.

“In recent years, many of S-OneLP’s customers have diversified into the legal cannabis market. This was a whole new suite of packaging applications that emerged overnight, ”said Tom Hauenstein, Vice President of Sales at S-OneLP. “As with any new venture, there were questions about the legal cannabis market when our customers struggled to find information about child resistance packaging requirements, changing regulations, and film barrier properties that keep cannabis products fresh. Customers often turned to S-OneLP’s experts for help navigating this new and dynamic landscape. “

The Cannabis Resource Guide is a website for label and packaging manufacturers who want to offer sophisticated, high-end packaging with superior shelf appeal that complies with state regulations, keeps the product fresh and, in many cases, is environmentally friendly. The Cannabis Resource Guide brings together industry knowledge, frontline customer interviews, and information on S-OneLP products.

The highlight of the Cannabis Resource Guide is an interactive map that lists US packaging laws by state. A primary concern for customers is to ensure that cannabis packaging complies with state laws. On the colorful map, visitors can quickly see which states have legalized recreational or medicinal cannabis laws and where cannabis is still illegal. Once a visitor clicks on a particular state, they will be directed to the state law regulating cannabis labels and packaging.

Label and packaging converters can also learn from those who have already invested in the market with an in-depth interview with Dura-Pack, an industry leader in cannabis packaging. Dura-Pack has been producing packaging and cannabis automation systems for this market since 2015. The video interview describes everything processors need to know before entering the cannabis packaging market – including child-resistant regulations, the ideal printing process for this market, automation technology, and more.

The Cannabis Resource Guide also includes an educational article that examines how child-resistant packaging is made and what this standard means for the entire cannabis packaging industry.
As part of the launch of the Cannabis Resource Guide, S-OneLP is offering discounts on some of its top products preferred by cannabis brands. Visit the Cannabis Resource Guide for a 20 percent discount on up to four rolls of material through Friday, April 23rd.
