Kush Bottles Responds to CBS News Report on Packaging of Marijuana Infused Edibles

New rules affect edible pot products, which make up about 45% of the legal marijuana industry in Colorado

DENVER, Feb. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, North America's premier supplier of child-resistant packaging solutions for the marijuana industry, commented today on a recent report on CBS News regarding a new Colorado law regulating cannabis-infused edible products.

"The law came from bad experiences after marijuana for recreational use was legalized in 2014. Edible sales soared. So did emergency room visits by kids who ate edibles," Barry Peterson of CBS News reported.

Now, regulators are trying to encourage edible manufacturers to sell in a more responsible manner. New regulations state that each edible sold for recreational use must be wrapped individually or scored to show individual servings, with no more than 10mg of THC per serving, in child-resistant packaging.

"There will likely be other problems as pot use spreads, and likely more new laws to come," according to the report.

Kush Bottles is the leader in providing certified child-resistant packaging in Colorado and every other state where medical or adult-use marijuana has been legalized. Kush Bottles has a range of cannabis packaging solutions, including premium American-made containers, and a value-line of inexpensive, compliant options.

"We are pleased that the State of Colorado has updated their regulations in order to provide better protection from accidental ingestion," Nicholas Kovacevich, co-founder and CEO of Kush Bottles commented. "Kush Bottles has been at the forefront of child-resistant packaging since the earliest days of this industry."

"We go far beyond providing customized packaging solutions. We have intimate knowledge of the changes and nuances in marijuana regulations. We meet with state regulators and have direct access to changing compliance ordinances," he added. "We are a one-stop shop where growers and dispensary operators can obtain customized packaging, learn about changes in regulations, and receive free compliance advice."
