Compliant Packaging Options

Plastic packaging is prohibited for the retail sale of adult-use cannabis and cannabis products.  See Board Rule 2.2.9(b).  Reusable materials such as cardboard, glass, metal, bamboo, and wood are all compliant packaging options. 

To help licensees find compliant plastic-free packaging, the Board has compiled a non-exhaustive list. The Board has not vetted or endorsed these companies beyond the availability of plastic-free packaging options. This list is offered for informational purposes only.

The licensed cannabis community can be a great resource for fellow licensees in their search for compliant packaging. If you have questions about the packaging requirements, email your compliance agent at
