We are a paper packaging manufacturer with 85 teammates on four production lines. We are located in Shenzhen, a city that leads the paper packaging industry in China. Since 2014, we have found our niche in the cannabis industry as a supplier of paper packaging.
We are proud to say that we were the first paper packaging manufacturer to focus on the cannabis industry. This is due to our constant attention to the US market. We had an early insight into cannabis legalization in the United States and Canada. Cannabis in Canada is legal for both recreational and medicinal purposes. As of November 2020, medical marijuana is legal in 36 U.S. states (with the latest one being Mississippi) and the District of Columbia. 15 states have legalized recreational cannabis: Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Washington state, New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota, and Montana. We believe in this unstoppable trend towards marijuana legalization. As a paper box manufacturer on the other side of the ocean, we are witnessing and participating in this process by providing paper packaging solutions for the US/Canadian cannabis industry.
Over the past six years, we have been constantly bringing forth new packaging solutions, responding to market demand, and customer feedback. Our product evolution has also witnessed our active involvement in the US/Canadian cannabis industry.
Early Phase (2014 to 2018): Non-CR Paper Packaging
Back in 2014 when the marijuana industry was in its infancy and states with legalized cannabis were still working on the packaging and labeling regulations, the market was mostly full of regular paper packaging. The packaging for the cannabis industry is indistinguishable from that in other industries. “Child-resistant packaging” still seems a novelty. In those years, we mainly produced paper packagings without locking mechanism, including drawer boxes for vape cartridges, folding cartons for concentrates jars/extracts containers/, folding cartons for tincture bottles, and cardboard tubes for pre-rolls/tincture bottles.
Entering the “CR Phase” (Oct 2018 to May 2019): Child-Resistant Slide Box
As more and more U.S. states successively introduced regulations requiring child-resistant but senior-friendly cannabis packaging, we developed a child lock device on the original slide drawer box. We took the lead in China’s paper packaging industry to meet the 16 CFR 1700.20 child-resistance standards. This CR slide cartridge box comes with a viewing window and is one of our most popular products. With some states (for example, Utah, Oklahoma, etc) regulating that marijuana products can’t be exposed, we duly introduced a windowless CR cartridge box. We have a daily production capacity of 12,000 PCS for these CR-certified cartridge boxes. We are proud to serve a number of the leading brands in the cannabis industry. If you walk into any dispensaries in the United States/Canada and pick up one childproof drawer box, it’s probably made in our factory.
Embracing the Innovation Phase (June 2019 till Now and the Future): Patented CR Certified Cardboard Tube
This is a patented product that we were proud of in 2019. We really think out of the box at that time. We fully understand the importance of innovative packaging for a brand. The biggest selling point of this child-resistant cardboard cylinder is the unique cylinder shape, making it easily stand out on any crowded dispensary shelves. Being small, portable, and, most importantly, childproof, it’s designed for vape cartridges. This CR cardboard cylinder is gaining popularity in the United States/Canada.
We have also introduced larger cardboard cylinders with the same locking mechanism, such as the CR cardboard tube for tincture bottles and the childproof rounded paper tube for larger containers.
Specializing in cannabis packaging solutions and servicing numerous start-ups and small businesses apart from corporate giants in the cannabis industry, we understand their requirements better than most in the past six years. This is what makes MarijuanaPackagingSolution the unparalleled leader in cannabis-specific paper packaging manufacturing.
The cannabis industry is changing rapidly, but we are still on the same mission:
- To make better paper packaging for the cannabis industry
- To be a respectable cardboard packaging manufacturer to defend the “Made in China” label
