Approved Packaging Waivers

The following plastic packaging options have been approved by the Board. A licensee may seek a waiver to the CCB's prohibition on plastic packaging if it can demonstrate hardship in securing non-plastic packaging for one of the following reasons:

  • Unavailability of non-plastic packaging;
  • Inability to achieve child-resistance; or
  • Necessity to preserve shelf-life stability, prevent contamination of cannabis or cannabis products, or avoid exposure of cannabis and cannabis products to toxic or harmful substance

In order to be approved, a licensee must submit a waiver form for the particular type of packaging seeking approval to the Board.

Once a waiver is granted, that waiver will apply to all licensees - not just the licensee who submitted the waiver.
