US-based marijuana industry packaging supplier Kush Bottles has introduced Satchel, a new exit packaging solution for cannabis edibles.

The packaging will enable dispensary owners and operators to provide an exit package that meets state regulations in the US. According to the company, it meets standards for child resistance set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, ASTM, and the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED).

Kush Bottles CEO Ben Wu said that packaging of cannabis-based products such as edibles has been a challenge for many dispensary operators.

"We are now proud to offer a high-quality exit package solution that works for virtually any product configuration, while maintaining the strictest compliance with child-safety requirements," Wu added.

"We expect to see significant sales both in adult-use states like Colorado and Washington, as well as medical marijuana states like California, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and elsewhere."

Kush Bottles has sold more than ten million bottles directly to dispensaries and growers, and also works with distributors with exclusive territories in some areas. It has on-staff professionals who are experts in each state's regulations regarding the packaging of cannabis and cannabis-based products.
