What You Need to Know about Cannabis Labeling in Colorado
Colorado legalized medical marijuana in 2000 followed by recreational marijuana, in 2012. Both cannabis laws bring with them limits and regulations. All cannabis products must be appropriately labeled. Here's what you need to know about recreational cannabis labeling in Colorado.
Recreational Cannabis Labeling Requirements in Colorado
First, all recreational cannabis labels in Colorado must contain the universal ! THC symbol, which instantly identifies products as containing marijuana. It is recognizable by consumers and non-consumers alike, helping to warn potential users about the product's contents.
Next, all labels must include a series of warning statements. These statements must address the following:
The text of the cannabis label must also include the following:
•Your cannabis labels must not make any false or misleading claims as to the product's health or physical benefits to the consumer
Since each batch is unique with its own batch number and date of sale, cannabis labels should be printed on demand. Epson's ColorWorks 3500 (TM-C3500) label printer is an excellent and affordable option for dispensaries that want to print full color cannabis labels. In addition, the Epson TM-C7500, TM-C7500G and TM-C7500GE, for example, are high speed, high print quality printers, for cannabis producers that need to print large quantities of labels quickly.
Cannabis Packaging Requirements
In addition to Colorado's cannabis label requirements, you'll also need to be sure that your product packaging is child resistant, opaque, resealable, and does not appeal to children.
Other Labeling Considerations for Printing Your Own Cannabis Labels
In addition to ensuring that your cannabis labels contain the required components under Colorado's marijuana label laws, you'll want to be sure to use a suitable label printer and appropriate label materials so that your cannabis labels are clear, legible, and professional looking.
