Kush Bottles comments on Time Magazine's report: "Pot Will See Sales Spike For Super Bowl"
Company sending extra shipments to Washington and Colorado to fill huge upsurge in demand
SANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, North America's largest wholesale distributor of child-resistant packaging for the marijuana industry, stated that they have sent extra shipments of their exclusive state compliant vials, bottles and packaging to the states of Colorado and Washington to fill the large increase in recent orders.
"Football is good for lots of businesses," Time Magazine stated. "Especially with both states who have teams in the Super Bowl—Colorado's Denver Broncos and Washington state's Seattle Seahawks—having recently become the first two states to allow marijuana for recreational use."
Kush Bottles, who is opening a new distribution center in Denver to keep up with the demand, has added extra shifts to fill the influx of orders.
"As more dispensaries become aware that many other brands of containers do not meet government standards, and that using them could result in significant penalties, we have seen an enormous upsurge in demand for our child-safe packaging," said Nicholas Kovacevich, COO of Kush Bottles. "Accordingly, we have increased our staff to meet the greater demand."
The Marijuana Enforcement Division of the Colorado Department of Revenue recently issued a warning to dispensary operators. "All Retail Marijuana Stores and Medical Marijuana Centers must be in compliance with the packaging rules without exception," the bulletin stated. "To be clear, a violation of the packaging rules shall be considered a violation affecting public safety and can result in severe sanctions against your license."
Kush Bottles is one of the only suppliers that has had their bottles tested by an accredited third party lab, under contract with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
