MarijuanaPackaging.com has finally launched the first ever line of biodegradable joint tubes to meet the demand of customers across the US and provide innovative solutions to meet biodegradable packaging needs! These doob tubes are a pioneering new product encompassing green solutions and biodegradable packaging for affordable prices, inclusive of a chic design and ease of accessibility that is consistent with their standard plastic joint tubes.

Hefty Countrywide Regulations on Packaging Pose an Ecological Dilemma

The marijuana industry has been a significant source of plastic waste and contamination resulting from single-use packaging materials. At the forefront of all state marijuana packaging laws is the primary goal of avoiding containers which are appealing and accessible to children. Though each state has its own set of industry compliance requirements, these childproofing requirements fall under an umbrella statute, meaning there is no room for state-by-state exceptions when it comes to child protective regulations. Marijuana and marijuana products sold in dispensaries must be sealed in opaque, child-resistant, tamper-evident packaging, among other stringent guidelines that lead to excessive plastic waste.

How Cannabis Safety Requirements Pack on the Plastic

While these rules have sparked innovative child-resistant designs that challenge even the sharpest of adult users, the layers of seals and plastic pose an industry-wide ecological problem, creating an urgency for a biodegradable packaging solution. In addition to the bulky plastic containers commonly used to package flower and infused products, heavy, plastic, exit bags are commonly used, and very little of this material is recycled. In fact, much of it isn’t recyclable in the first place.

With several states voting on legalization this November and federal legalization currently being considered by congress, the demand for packaging materials is expected to exponentially increase. The plastic pollution crisis has already reached disproportionate levels and demands greener alternatives to solve this ballooning environmental issue. 

As Cannabis Purchasers Grow Increasingly Eco-Conscious, Consumers Will Favor Sustainable Alternatives

The strict packaging requirements the marijuana industry is beholden to are unlikely to ease up any time soon, so it is up to industry leaders to consider how they might achieve compliance with the state while avoiding adding further strain on our global ecosystem. It is also a consideration some customers and patients will make when purchasing cannabis products as sustainable packaging options grow increasingly popular among consumers. A significant portion of cannabis packaging currently in use is composed of polypropylene (labelled number 5 when inside the recycle symbol), which is the sort of container that ends up in landfills. This material also demands a greater degree of effort and energy to downgrade than most other plastics. For this reason, MarijuanaPackaging.com has developed its line of biodegradable pre roll tubes to help cut back on plastic waste for the slimmest of dispensary products.

These Biodegradable Joint Tubes Aim to Reduce the Cannabis Industry’s Carbon Footprint

MarijuanaPackaging.com is introducing new materials like biodegradable joint tubes that are eco-friendly and sustainable! Having undergone ASTM D5511 testing, these biodegradable joint tubes have shown a 95% degradation within 241 days of disposal. These containers reduce carbon emissions from the time they are manufactured to the time they are disposed of and are made in the USA from bioblend resins, consisting of plant-based polymers and recyclable polypropylene.

Select a Customized Design
