Top 5 Ways to Display Cannabis in Stores
There are several options when it comes to displaying cannabis in stores and dispensers. However, you should be aware that each of these options will have different results. Cannabis is a temperamental plant that can easily have its quality and effectiveness reduced by external elements or environmental factors. The best way to ensure that your product stays fresh and continues to provide your customers with the intended effects is to use the right type of packaging.
The right type of container for cannabis is always a packaging bag. While glass jars are the traditional and most common way that you will see cannabis displayed in at dispensaries, this method is not ideal. The benefit of glass jars is that they have a neutral charge and no static sling, so the trichomes on the cannabis plant will go undamaged. However, our packaging bags also have a neutral charge and no static cling, so this same benefit applies to our bags. This list will go over the top 5 packaging bags that we have available, and explain how to best utilize these containers.
These jar shaped stand up zip-seal bags combine the look of jars with the benefits of standup bags. The clear poly-plastic window will display the stored product while also protecting it. The QuickQlick™ bags have a zip-seal opening that will generate a tight lock that will keep out debris or contaminants. This packaging bag will also ensure that the humidity level of the cannabis is kept at the ideal ratio. Unlike glass jars, our packaging bags will not dry out the cannabis.
These bags provide an alternative style of jar shaped stand up zip-seal bags. These pouches come in 4 sizes and colors to choose from and they have a double-sided translucent window which provides a frosted view of the interior of the bag. This slightly blurred view offers a small amount of sun protection. Sunlight and oxygen are two elements that can quickly degrade cannabis and convert the THC molecules into CBNa or CBN compounds. CBNa is also known as Cannabinolic acid and CBN stands for cannabinol. These two compounds are responsible for the sedative and appetite-inducing effects of cannabis. However, they are not psychoactive like THC. So then, prolonged exposure to sunlight and oxygen will result in a product that is less intense and less potent.
For total protection from sunlight, use our double-sided stand-up zip-seal bags. The thick color coating on both sides of these bags will block out UV rays. The fluorescent light in stores still emits small amounts of UV radiation. This small amount of UV light is enough to cause a chemical breakdown within the Cannabis product. Prevent this from happening by using our double-sided bags with UV proof material.
If you are interested in displaying your product on pegboards, hooks, or racks, consider using a bag with a hang hole. Our matte windowed flat bags feature a round hang hole that enables the bag to be hung on any of these display tools. They also feature a translucent window that provides a frosted view of the interior of the bag. This ensures that the product is not hit by the full force of the UV light. These bags also come in a variety of eye-catching colors so that customers will associate your product with quality.
For smaller portions of cannabis, consider using a flat open fill bag. These flat bags are ideal for smaller quantities because of their available sizes and their premium features. This includes double-sided UV proof material, impermeability, and pre-drawn package design. The black color and white smoke pattern will draw in customers and make them focus on the product. This smoke pattern was designed with cannabis in mind. The “herbal incense blend” written on the front of the pouch subtlety describes what is contained within the bags. The back of the bag has white smoke drifting across a black background.
Ditch the glass jars and start packaging your cannabis like a supplier of the future. The benefits of packaging bags vastly outweigh the strengths of jars. Make the switch now and see the difference it will make on the quality of your products and the customer’s view of your product. For more information on cannabis packaging, see our cannabis page.
