When cannabis concentrates are exposed to high humidity, light, or warmth, they break down and lose their potency. That's why proper packaging is critical to maintaining the quality of cannabis concentrates. Since no two concentrates are the same, deciding what is the right packaging is easier said than done.
The best way to package cannabis concentrates depends on the consistency of the product, as some containers cannot accommodate certain consistencies. Therefore, determining the type of concentrate you want to package is the first step in choosing the ideal packaging method.
For liquid concentrates, glass bottles offer the best protection. Glass bottles often come with screw caps, especially when holding oils and distillates, and rely on droppers to control the dosage of concentrates. Snap-on and pop-off lids are also common, especially for large-capacity glass jars. In addition to being easy to use, the tops of glass containers often create a reliable seal that can ensure that moisture never penetrates the seal and can protect its contents from excessive heat or light.
For solid concentrates, open-top metal cans or plastic bags are the best containers for long-term storage. There are significant differences between metal and plastic packaging, but they need to be sealed to avoid constant exposure to oxygen, which can degrade concentrates over time. So make sure the container is sealed before you buy.
For some concentrates that are not completely liquid or solid. Polystyrene containers for balms, ointments, and beauty products are often perfect for concentrates of this consistency. Their compact size and easy-to-open swivel top make them a clear winner for users who prefer accessibility above all else.
You'll need to protect your cannabis concentrates by storing them in a container that can be sealed from oxygen, sunlight, heat, and moisture. Proper storage will vary depending on the consistency of the concentrate and will ensure that your product retains its full potency as well as its natural flavor and texture.
