Cannabis product labels are required to include the following information:
- The identity of the cannabis product, including the brand name, common or generic name, and strain type;

- The T.H.C. and CBD content of the product;

- The name and address of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor;
- Instructions for use, if any;
- Warnings, if any; and
- “This product contains cannabis, a Schedule I substance under the Federal Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 801 et seq.).”
Moreover, all cannabis products must be packaged in a tamper-evident, child-resistant container.
Below are the main items you should include on the CBD edibles. So, your customers can have all the important details about the product and the company:
- Manufacturer contact details
- Batch number or Unique ID
- Date of manufacture
- Ingredients list
- Nutritional information
- Expiration date
- THC and/or CBD content
Yes, different state laws require special disclosure requirements. So, as a producer or packaging agent, you’ll have to comply depending upon the targeted state. As a general rule, cannabis products must be packaged in child-resistant and light-resistant packaging.
Child-resistant means that the colors and packaging style shouldn’t be appealing to the kids, whereas light-resistant means the cannabis products should be in opaque bottles or other custom product packaging material that won’t reveal the contents.
Any product including flower, edibles, concentrates, vapes, sprays, tinctures, and soft gel capsules come under the cannabis category and would require you to follow the state-wise disclosure requirements.
You can find the cannabis labels in the following main types:
- Barcode labels
- Container labels
- Medical labels
- Label dispensers
- Thermal transfer printers, ribbons, and accessories
- Sequentially numbered labels
Depending upon the type of product you are offering, you can choose the right label.
Yes, circular, rectangular, oval, and square the primary shapes used for creating labels. You can choose any one of these or create your custom shape for your cannabis products.
When printing a label for a cannabis product, it’s important to consider the following:
- The size and shape of the label
- The material the label is made of
- The amount of ink coverage on the label
- The print quality of the label
- Whether the label is waterproof or not
- Whether the label is durable enough to withstand temperature changes and light exposure
- The adhesive used on the label
- The cannabis strain or product being labeled
The most important factors that M&R Label keeps in mind:
Shape: When choosing a label size and shape, it’s important to consider the amount of space you have on the product packaging. You’ll also want to ensure that consumers can easily read and understand the label.
Material: The material your label is made of will also affect its durability and ability to withstand different environmental conditions. For example, if you’re labeling a cannabis product that will be stored in a humid environment, you’ll want to choose a label material that won’t absorb moisture.
Ink Coverage: Your label’s ink coverage will also affect its overall appearance. If you’re looking for a more opaque label, you’ll want to choose a material with a high ink coverage. However, if you’re looking for a more translucent label, you’ll want to choose a material with a low ink coverage.
Print Quality: The print quality of your label will also affect its overall appearance. If you’re looking for a high-quality label, you’ll want to choose a material with a high resolution. However, if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly label, you’ll want to choose a material with a lower resolution.
Durability: Whether your label is waterproof or not will also affect its overall durability. If you’re labeling a cannabis product that will be exposed to water, you’ll want to choose a waterproof label. However, if you’re labeling a cannabis product that won’t be exposed to water, you can choose a non-waterproof label.
Whether your label is durable enough to withstand temperature changes and light exposure will also affect its lifespan. If you’re looking for a label that will last for a long time, you’ll want to choose a durable material that is resistant to fading.
The adhesive used on your label will also affect its overall durability. If you’re looking for a strong adhesive, you’ll want to choose an acrylic-based adhesive. However, if you’re looking for a more temporary label, you can choose a water-based adhesive.
Lastly, the cannabis strain or product you’re labeling will also affect the type of label you choose. For example, if you’re labeling a cannabis product containing T.H.C., you’ll want to choose a label specifically designed for that strain. However, you can choose any label if you’re labeling a cannabis product that doesn’t contain T.H.C.
All of these factors will affect your label’s final appearance and quality.
