SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kush Bottles, "The "Official Bottle of the Marijuana Industry," and North America's largest wholesale distributor of child-safe packaging for the marijuana industry, announced today that much of the packaging used in Colorado has not been tested by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and utilizes non-FDA approved materials.
A recent article in The Denver Post titled, "Pot Shops Struggle to Find Child Resistant Bags," reported that owners of recreational marijuana businesses in Colorado are having a hard time finding vendors that make child-resistant packaging. This has resulted in many shops using subpar packaging, made with inferior materials.
Kush Bottles is Colorado's leading provider of child-safe marijuana packaging, all of which have been tested by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), and are made in the USA with FDA-approved materials.
"There is simply no excuse for dispensary operators to use non-compliant or inferior packaging, especially when CPSC-tested containers utilizing FDA-approved materials are readily available," said Nicholas Kovacevich, COO of Kush Bottles. "We have invested a great deal of time and money in packaging design, testing and approvals, to be able to provide the public and Colorado dispensary operators with a range of products that meet or exceed all requirements for child safe packaging," he added. "The marijuana industry is now in the spotlight as never before, and it is imperative that dispensary operators and ancillary businesses conduct themselves in a fully compliant and ethical manner, and not seek shortcuts at this critical time when the eyes of the world are upon our every step."
Kush Bottles carries a large selection of pharmaceutical-grade bottles in both Pop-Top and Reverse-Cap configurations. Kush Bottles also has packaging and labeling materials that are state-compliant with all necessary regulatory language.
