Cannabinoid products are gaining popularity, and it is important to understand how to sell them. You can package your products with a variety of different methods based on the kind of product however there are some basic guidelines you should follow.
What are the cannabinoids and what are they doing to the body?
Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds which interact with the brain’s endocannabinoid system or ECS. Although cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant have a similarity to the natural cannabinoids found within the body however, they have different effects because of their interaction with cannabinoid receptors. THC, CBD and CBN are the three main cannabinoids present in cannabis plants. The cannabis cannabinoids that people put on their bodies to reduce inflammation and pain, and to induce relaxation (not yet approved by the FDA) are:
* Capsaicin, found in chili peppers: reduces itching, increases blood flow; aids with weight loss; reduces pain
* Capsicum (found within peppers belonging to the Capsicum family ): reduces inflammation; helps with digestion, and helps in the treatment of arthritis.
* Cinnamon: Increases blood flow and eases pain/inflammation
* Ginger: Increases circulation, reduces inflammation and pain. It soothes nausea.
How to package your cannabis products to sell

3) Cannabis products will not typically have an official seal. However, they must still meet the legal requirements for labeling.

5.) Cannabis that is to be vaporized has to include instructions regarding how to vape it safely, whether it is intended to be smoked, or vaporized.
6.) Cannabis that is to be eaten must have precautions to be in place in the event of accidental consumption by children, pets, etc. In some situations, it may be required to be labeled properly for dosage amounts.
7) Cannabis products that are intended to be ingested through vaping or smoking require child-proof lids, proper warning labels and ingredient listing. Cannabis that is not edible does not require ingredient listings or dosage details.
8) Cannabis products are required to have the THC content stated on the label.
