Child-resistant Packaging Solution You Need To Know For Edibles

Child Resistant Packaging for Cannabis Edibles - INNORHINO
Child-resistant packaging (aka CR packaging) is designed to be hard to open for children under the age of five. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the use of child-resistant packaging for medication or chemical-heavy products.

The ugly truth about rising number of kids eating marijuana edibles by accident

Sometimes packaging can be overlooked. Some may even argue it’s less important compared to other tools for product marketing. Think again, the following data might change your mind. According to a study published in Pediatrics, roughly 98% of kids have access to cannabis in a home setting. Among which, 23% of them resulted in admittance to a hospital. Furthermore, children under the age of six account for about 40% of calls to poison control in the United States. 

Why cannabis edibles can be risky for your kids?

So, why is consuming cannabis edibles dangerous for young children? Typically, a dose of edible cannabis ranges from 2.5 to 10 milligrams of THC. Each package usually contains multiple doses. Just like eating their favorite candies or chocolate bars, a child may not stop after eating one piece of colorful gummy. Moreover, children are at risk of increased toxicity due to lighter body weight. They can experience a range of symptoms from feeling lethargic, anxious to having a slower or faster heart rate. Even worse, some may undergo severe symptoms including loss of consciousness, difficulty breathing or seizures.

As a result, it is important to look into ways to keep children away from cannabis edibles such as storing them in locked cabinets. Or to keep edibles away from food products to minimize the possibility of accidental consumption. Similarly, medical doctors suggest not consuming marijuana edibles in front of children. However, the underlying key to the problem is that — we need packaging solutions that can better safeguard young children.

Child-resistant packaging: a worry-free solution to end accidental consumption of cannabis

Let’s take a sneak peek into various packaging solutions that have child-resistant features. First of all, child-resistant packaging (aka CR packaging) is designed to be hard to open for children under the age of five. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the use of child-resistant packaging for medication or chemical-heavy products.

When it comes to CR packaging, there are many options depending on the type of cannabis product it’s used for:

CR Folding Carton
Folding cartons:

Folding cartons have an intricate design if you are looking for a robust child-resistant packaging solution. Plus, there are a lot more CR packaging options for you to choose from! You need to apply pressure at specific locations on both the top and the side of the carton. This combined with a pulling motion can then only successfully open the package.

CR Packaging-Rigid Box
Rigid boxes:

Rigid boxes are a great choice for CR packaging if you are looking for something that has a premium look! The two “buttons” on the box together with a pulling motion makes it difficult for children to open!

CR Packaging-Glass Jar and CR Lids
Glass jars:

Glass jars have hidden child-resistant features built into their cap. You need to apply a downward pressure together with a twisting motion in order to open it successfully. Better yet, glass jars come in a variety of sizes and they are scent-proof!

Combination lock bag:

Combination lock bags have got so many great features to offer! First off, the combination lock makes it 100% child resistant. They take up less space due to its lightweight and soft material. It’s also scent-proof, which is great in keeping the content inside fresh!

CR Ziplock Bag - INNORHINO
Mylar bags:

If you are looking for ways to have fun while opening cannabis products, a child-resistant Mylar bag is your best bet! These specially designed Mylar bags have a “deceptive” seam at the opening. You need to find the “real” seam to get to the treasure inside! In addition, there are other amazing features such as odor-resistant, durable against wear and tear and resealable. The best thing is that it’s really easy to customize the bags to fulfill your needs!
