Once you order for cannabis from an online company in Canada, the company will have to package and deliver the weed safely to your place. You may also want to package and carry your weed to a retailer (if at all you are a producer of weed), or even carry it for use while touring a place. But do you know how to package and carry weed?
Legalization of weed in nations like Canada, the United States and Mexico has resulted to increase in activities around production, distribution and consumption of weed in such countries. The main focus of this article is on the distribution phase of cannabis. The text will clearly outline how to package and carry weed.
How to Package Weed
Your weed packaging process will either boost or derail your weed business. The packaging process should be in line with the provisions of the law in states where weed has been legalized. It is important to note that the container you use for packaging should be child resistant (that is, difficult for children to open and access the weed). This provision is meant to protect children from consuming marijuana, a potentially hazardous substance in the young.
In addition to that, use packaging materials that are opaque in order to prevent light decomposition of your product as well as visual attraction to adolescents. Also, the packaging material should be designed in such a way that one can tell when it has been opened. This is to alert the consumer in case of any breach of the product while in the delivery phase.
In some other states, you may be required to label your package, clearly indicating the ingredients used, how to use the product (weed) and the contraindications it has (if any).
How to Carry Weed
Much as marijuana production and consumption is legalized in Canada, carrying the product across international borders is prohibited. You are however allowed to carry it when you make domestic tours or have domestic flights.
You therefore have to observe the protocols in the provinces that you want to go to (while carrying marijuana). For example, you will have to meet the weight requirements when boarding domestic planes. It is important to note that the weight limit for recreational weed is much less than that for medical weed. Also, you have to present a certification document for medical weed in case you carry any.
The liquid and topical forms of marijuana that is used for recreational or medical purposes are subject to liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGS) restrictions. They therefore have to be packaged together with other LAG products in a one-liter plastic bag (that is transparent and that can be resealed) for you to be allowed into an airplane.
Another important point to note is that the package material for marijuana is not definite when one requires to travel with it. This means that so long as it meets the weight limits, the product can be placed in any container (even a sandwich sachet).
In conclusion, there are many requirements that have to be met when packaging and carrying marijuana. It is worthwhile to bear in mind the regulations in place, of the province that you want to carry your weed to. That is all you need to know on how to package and carry weed.
