Hemp Can Solve The Cannabis Packaging Problem

 While the growth of both medical and legal recreational marijuana use is exciting to see there has been one particular problem that many people have begun to notice with the industry. The marijuana industry has a waste problem.

What is meant by that remark is that many modern cannabis products are packaged in copious amounts of non-recyclable plastic. Whether in bags, containers, vials, and more we are seeing way too much pollution and trash generated by an industry that should be far more eco-friendly.

That’s where Sana Packaging comes into play. Sana Packaging is a US-based company that focuses on creating eco-friendly packaging Solutions for the cannabis industry.

-The Products-

The Sana packaging products are made from 100% reclaimed ocean plastic, plant-based hemp plastics, and other renewable materials. The kinds of products available are as follows:

  • Tubes
  • Stash jars with screw-top lids
  • Hemp container boxes

There is a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes of each of the above-mentioned products. The packaging products themselves look sharp and appear durable so that you can take comfort knowing that your goods are protected and that you are not contributing to the plastic waste problem that plagues the Cannabis industry.

-What Exactly is in These Products?-

The Pressed hemp paperboard product is comprised of 75% post-consumer recycled paper and 25%. The reclaimed ocean plastic products are made of 100% HDPE plastic and very simple to recycle. The hemp plastic products are composed of a chemical-free fiber-reinforced biocomposite plant-based hemp and PLA.

All of these products are 100% biodegradable and do not contribute to the plastic waste issue that currently plagues the marijuana industry.

 -The Origin of Sana Packaging-

Founders James Eichner and Ron Basak-Smith connected with each other during their time at the University of Colorado Boulder in 2015. The two founders connected with each other through a variety of interests, hobbies, and a very similar world view.

They did not form Sana Packaging until 2016 after winning a pitch competition. Ron and James took Sana Packaging full-time in May of 2017 and went on to become the first 100% plant-based hemp plastic packaging solution across the marijuana industry. Sana Packaging is currently based in Los Angeles, California, and Denver, Colorado.

The growth and social acceptance of cannabis-related businesses is indeed amazing but it is also important to protect the Earth and do business ethically as this industry grows.
