The California cannabis regulations require that all product packaging be
• child resistant
• tamper evident
• resealable (if the product has multiple uses).
Packaging for edibles must not only be opaque, but industry manufacturers are forbidden from showing the image of what the edible looks like in order to avoid appealing to children.
In addition, the labeling on the cannabis package may not:
• be attractive to children.
• make health claims.
• use the word “organic,” in violation of federal and state laws.
• use a California county name unless 100% of the cannabis was grown in that county.
It must carry the aforementioned California government warnings — the California Cannabis warning and, if the product contains one of the 900 chemicals currently on the Prop. 65 list, a Prop. 65 warning. Finally, every layer of the packaging must carry what is known, in properly cosmic lingo, as the Universal Symbol — a triangle with the silhouette of a cannabis leaf and an exclamation point.
