The how-to guide of using Mylar bags like a pro

So hopefully by now we have convinced you why using Mylar bags is a great choice for cannabis packaging. We have prepared a step-by-step guide on how to use Mylar bags like a pro!

  1. First off, choose the appropriate bag size and fill it with the buds.
  2. Next, add a humidity pack inside. This will regulate the moisture level inside so your buds don’t dry out over time.
  3. Seal the Mylar bags with a few options depending on what you have available at hands.
    • Iron: If you have a flat iron at hand, simply set the bag on an iron board. Then apply the iron to the seam until the bag is fully shut.

    • Hair straightener: It’s best to hold the bag vertically so it’s easier to seal it. Next carefully slide the hair straightener across the opening until it’s shut completely. During the heating process, make sure there are no air bubbles formed.

    • Vacuum sealer: If you have a vacuum sealer readily available, it also works well with Mylar bags.

Now you are ready to store the Mylar bags. An ideal storage location will be dark, dry and cool. Pro tip: go with Mylar bags that have child-resistant features and always label them before storage.
