Custom Cannabis Labels Made Easy

Comments Off on Custom Cannabis Labels Made Easy

Getting Started

Entering the cannabis industry can be exciting for growers and brand owners alike. With all of the excitement, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed and allow an oversight to happen. A brand’s ability to follow the regulatory standards set in place determines a large part of its success. Safety needs to be your number one concern when making business decisions in this industry. One of the most neglected parts of the cannabis industry is properly labeling the products that get sold into consumers hands for consumption. Creating custom cannabis labels that meet the regulatory standards set in place is essential to any operation.

Medicinal and recreational cannabis brands want to impress upon their customers. This is demonstrated through the quality of the product and packaging. The product can speak for itself-but the packaging cannot. It is the cannabis brand’s job to create a cannabis label that is both informatively compliant and aesthetically pleasing. There are significant differences in packaging between medicinal and recreational cannabis products, however, both require some degree of thought around how the user will experience the product and it’s packaging.

It is of the utmost importance that brands’ verify compliance with local and federal laws prior to starting their packaging design. Star Label Products works with cannabis brands nationwide. When you decide to work with Star Label Products, you decide to watch your cannabis brand grow.

Below you will find a few very important tips for creating custom cannabis labels. Feel free to save this as a guide for yourself…you’ll need it!

SO…what is required for compliance?

The Two-Panel Approach

To simplify things, we’ve broken the cannabis label into two parts:

  1. Primary panel includes the product name/ID, net weight/volume, quantity and any other required universal markings. This is the part of the cannabis label that will most likely be displayed in retail settings.
  2. Secondary panel provides required information such as the manufacturers name, date of manufacturing/packaging, batch #, expiration date, ingredients, instructions for use, track & trace details, the applicable Government Warning, Proposition 65 Warning and more depending on your location.

In addition, there must also be a “testing label” that provides specific data from lab testing. This label expresses the THC and CBD content in milligrams as well as any other cannabinoids or terpenes with higher concentration levels.

Follow local and federal guidelines to ensure total compliance.

5 Tips For Perfect CBD Product Labels

Comments Off on 5 Tips For Perfect CBD Product Labels

CBD and hemp-derived products contain no THC (the psychoactive component found in cannabis) so there are no hallucinogenic effects felt by the user. This area of the cannabis industry continues to grow as its applications for both medicinal and recreational uses expand. Rules and regulations surrounding these cannabis products are constantly evolving. It is the responsibility of the producer and seller to ensure product compliance. Working with Star Label Products on your cannabis project will allow you to represent your brand in both an attractive and compliant manner.

5 Tips For Perfect CBD Product Labels

Prior to production, it is important that brand owners verify that their product labels comply with local and federal laws. The 5 tips below are a great starting point for you and your brand!

1. Intended Use

What kind of CBD product is it? Is it a drug or dietary supplement? All of this determines the CBD product’s legality and should therefore be included on all CBD product labels.

2. CBD Content

This information will be displayed on the nutrition facts panel for food and beverage CBD labels, and will be listed under the supplement facts for other types of CBD products. CBD content must be listed as per serving.

3. Volume or Amount

You must be clear about how much of the product is inside of the package. Information such as net weight or count needs to be included depending on the type of CBD product that you are packaging. CBD brands should refer to their local and federal guidelines to ensure compliance.

4. Accurate Item Description

Always make sure that you’re including every bit of important information that the user should know about. Transparency is essential (and regulated!) in the cannabis industry. The greater the transparency offered to consumers, the more revered the cannabis brand will be for being open and honest about their products.

5. Zero Unprovable Claims

Avoid making any medical claims that suggest your product can treat life-threatening illnesses or other ailments. Congress has made it their mission to eliminate this bad practice from the industry, as these claims have not yet been tested and proven to be true.
