5. New Cannabis Packaging Enhances the Flavor Experience
Date codes tell consumers to eat foods and beverages by a certain time for the best taste experience. But other products that don’t sport a date code can also degrade over time.
Take cannabis for example. Vireo Health International went a step further than just adding a “freshness” date to packages of its cannabis flowers. It created proprietary, patent-pending TerpSafe packaging that preserves the naturally occurring terpenes, organic compounds that give distinctive aromas to various types of cannabis flower.
Closure design is the key element in Vireo’s new packaging: The lid features an aeration compartment that contains a tablet infused with terpenes. Over time, those terpenes infuse the cannabis flower. Vireo has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with eBottles420 to manufacture and distribute the terpene-preserving packaging system.
