Exploring Child-Resistant Packaging: Your Ultimate Guide 

Child-resistant packaging is a crucial aspect of product safety, particularly in industries like cannabis where the protection of minors is paramount. In the United States, stringent laws and regulations govern the packaging of various products, especially those that could pose a risk to children if not properly secured.

In this blog post, we'll delve into the history, legal framework, and options available for child-resistant packaging, with a focus on GoldLeaf Print & Packaging's innovative solutions.  

A Brief History and Legal Framework 

The history of child-resistant packaging goes back to the 1960s when concerns about accidental poisonings among children led to the introduction of safety measures. In response to these concerns, the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) was passed in 1970, mandating child-resistant packaging for certain household substances and medications. 

Over the years, the scope of the PPPA expanded to include other potentially hazardous items, including certain cannabis products. In the cannabis industry, child-resistant packaging is not only a legal requirement but also a moral obligation to safeguard children from accidental ingestion of cannabis-infused products. 

In the United States, child-resistant packaging laws for cannabis products are outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 16, Part 1700.20. These regulations specify the standards and testing protocols that packaging must meet to be deemed child-resistant.
