The packaging solutions will also be marked to help both children and parents highlight which items contain cannabis, in order to prevent confusion and/or accidental ingestion.

Browne added: "The variety of edible products popular with cannabis consumers is nearly endless.

"The industry is demanding a very wide selection of suitable packaging options in order to safely deliver the products that clients and patients want to buy."

Last July, Kush Bottles had also unveiled an exit packaging solution for cannabis edibles.

The exit package was designed in accordance with the standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, ASTM, and the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED).
