Glass Containers: The Best Choice for Cannabis Packaging

Glass is odor-resistant and airtight, which makes it the perfect way to package cannabis. It helps maintain the potency of the flower and prevents the buds from drying out, losing flavor or getting moldy. It allows for the visual presentation of food while protecting it. Many cannabis concentrates are also stored in glass containers.

Dispensaries, growers and consumers use glass jars to treat or preserve cannabis. For a top-notch look and feel on a craft scale, glass can really enhance a brand. Not only does glass look great, but it also has the benefit of being able to be recycled or repurposed.

Protecting the product

The quality and durability of glass jars make them perfect for storing food products such as gum, flower or concentrates. Glass jars protect products from moisture and oxygen, which can cause them to mold or dry out. Moisture control is essential to keep mold and mildew away from cannabis.

Childproof glass jars not only have an airtight seal to keep products fresh, contain odors and prevent contaminants from entering the product, but they also keep children out. The high level of chemical resistance adds to the protective qualities of the glass.

Transparent: showcasing the product

Clear glass jar packaging works well because it showcases the quality of the flower, food or concentrate. Using clear glass jars for flower means that the flower pieces will retain their shape and consumers can see the bud structure before they buy.

Who doesn't love to peak inside a glass jar to appreciate the beauty of the herbs stored within? It's important to store clear glass containers in a cool, dark place because cannabis loses potency when exposed to oxygen, heat and light.

Black: Blocks UV rays

Black jars may not offer the opportunity to see the product inside, but they offer a way to store cannabis discreetly. It's best to keep cannabis away from the harmful UV rays that can damage it, and black jars offer that option.

A study by the University of London in the 1970s found that light is one of the main causes of cannabinoid degradation over time. Storing cannabis for any length of time requires keeping it at room temperature in a dark, sealed container.

Multiple sizes and shapes

The size of the glass jar is important because oxidation causes cannabis to age more quickly. Glass jars come in many different sizes, and storing small amounts in larger jars means more oxygen will enter when the jar is opened. A 2 ounce glass jar is perfect for storing up to 2.5 grams of product and can hold up to 7 grams or half ounces in a 5 ounce jar. A compact jar is discreet and fits easily into a bag or pocket.

Glass tube-shaped jars are good containers for food because they display food beautifully inside and seal the jar with shrink bands to ensure the integrity of the user's product.

Quality appearance

Glass jars offer great opportunities for custom branding, including custom lids, labels, packaging and print designs. Some brands even use etched jars. Want to add a logo to a glass jar? No problem. Sleek black glass jars with contrasting color logos make an authentic statement.

Simply imprinting the cap gives the glass jar a high-end professional look. High quality custom cannabis glass jars may be made with UV glass to protect the herb from UV rays and come with a variety of childproof lids.

Easy to clean

Over time, plant resins and milkshakes can build up and stick to the jar. If it's left in the jar long enough, it can grow mold, which can exacerbate conditions like allergies or asthma and increase lung and bronchial irritation. Cleaning glass jars is easy and does not require any special ingredients or equipment.

Glass jars can also be washed in the dishwasher, and using the "sanitizer" setting will help kill any germs and bacteria. If you find some sticky buildup, try using these cleaning methods to help keep your cannabis fresher and more effective for longer.

A final word

Cannabis packaging can play a role in keeping its freshness, flavor and aroma. Glass jars offer a great option to prevent cannabis from degrading because of their airtight quality that keeps moisture and air out. They also offer consumers the option to view the contents inside, which is important for products that need to stand out on dispensary shelves. They are also durable, customizable, and can be recycled or repurposed. Glass jars provide a high-end look that lasts long after the product has been consumed.
