Attendees will receive an in-depth overview on the state-by-state US medicinal and recreational regulations, and on business trends for various cannabis formats, including edibles, flowers, pre-rolls, tobacco and creams.
An update on the sector’s strength as it emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic will be provided, as presenters will illustrate where the cannabis packaging landscape is and where it is going with an honest assessment of challenges, opportunities and emerging solutions.
The webinar will also highlight Hoffmann Neopac’s dual packaging specialties — tins and tubes — and how they can be employed to meet child-resistance requirements and sustainability demands while providing exemplary product protection and on-shelf aesthetics.
For example, the company’s range of CR Tins, which combine child-resistance, product protection/efficacy and attractive aesthetics. have proven popular with cannabis products.
The CR Tins are made of tinplate steel with a polypropylene (PP) plastic insert, which offers an aroma barrier while retaining the package’s overall recyclability. The tins satisfy the child resistance standard for 16 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1,700, including those in the US and Canada.
For decoration flexibility, they can come either in basic silver for easy labeling, or as full-color, custom-printed tins. Compliant with requirements in various global markets, the certified child-resistant containers are 70mm in diameter and available in volumes of 50ml, 100ml and 500ml.
Neopac’s range of tube solutions also will be showcased. The company's Polyfoil tubes provide protection for cannabis products requiring elevated barrier properties. These can be matched with a range of applicators, including child safe versions, rollers and droppers.
Finally, for marijuana manufacturers looking to stress sustainability, Neopac’s EcoDesign portfolio includes RECYCLED TUBE featuring 64% recycled, “FDA food-contact” compliant polyethylene plastics; Sugarcane Tube, made from renewable raw materials and offering the same characteristics and processability as fossil-based polyethylene; and PICEA™ wood tube, comprised of 95% renewable material in the tube body and shoulder – including 10% of spruce wood from wood waste in sawmills.
