What Does Eco-Friendly and Compliant NY Child-Resistant Cannabis Packaging Look Like?

Though the adult-use cannabis industry in New York State is relatively young, it is projected to become one of the most robust cannabis industries in the United States — second only to California. Income from regulated cannabis in the state is expected to exceed $6 billion by 2030; it’s essential to keep sustainability in mind in an industry of this size. 

Thankfully, New York has already established regulations to ensure the state’s burgeoning cannabis industry embraces eco-friendly practices as it grows. Sana Packaging is here to supply NY cannabis producers with the packaging they need to comply with every aspect of New York’s cannabis packing regulations.

Requirements for Recycled Cannabis in New York State

Lawmakers in New York State recently ruled that all cannabis packaging must be made from at least 25% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials. This move ensures cannabis producers working in the state are mindful of the effects the cannabis industry can have on the environment. Luckily, opting for recycled plastic packaging will still allow easy access and easy recycling for NY cannabis consumers. 

New York Regulations for Cannabis Packaging

Like many other states, New York also has safety requirements regarding cannabis packaging. In New York state, adult-use cannabis must be packaged in child-resistant containers. The labels on these products must not be appealing to children and must clearly disclose the cannabinoid content and dosage information. 

Compliant and Eco-Friendly Cannabis Packaging for New York Cannabis Companies

In short, cannabis packaging in New York State must be child-resistant, clearly labeled, and made from at least 25% PCR plastic. Sana Packaging has numerous packaging solutions that fulfill all of these requirements.
