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.

SO…what is required for compliance?
The Two-Panel Approach
To simplify things, we’ve broken the cannabis label into two parts:
- 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.
- 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.
