Ben Discusses The Difference Primary and Secondary Packaging.

Primary packaging vs. Secondary packaging Many cannabis companies use a secondary package, meaning an outer box or pouch, and in many cases, this is not necessary. In many markets in the US including Colorado, California and now Canada, primary packaging (that is child-resistant) is all that is required. The main reason why companies have used a secondary package is that cannabis labels need to display a lot of copy to satisfy the regulations. Now, many regulations allow wrap around or accordion labels that take up less space. This allows for more innovation in design and functionality in primary packaging. By using primary packages, and not using a secondary package, companies can save up to 25% on cost, as well as not contributing to the tremendous amount of waste in packaging. See video here
