Nevada Company Supplies Dispensaries, Growers With Quality Packaging

You can buy the cannabis strain you want. You can figure out how you want to consume it. But here’s a question that many are starting to ask: What’s the best way to store my stash?

The answer to that back in the days before legalization was “anywhere I can hide it.” That meant small tins, coffee cans or plastic bags stuffed in the back of a closet. The legalization and mainstreaming of marijuana have made those days obsolete.

Today, cannabis consumers can find products that allow them to store marijuana the way it should be – in a way that protects its freshness. Dispensaries now can sell cannabis in high-end packaging.

But where do the dispensaries get that packaging? That’s where companies like Sierra Bags enter the picture.

Industry-Leading Packing Experts

Cannabis consumers have come to expect all the attention to detail in their marijuana purchases as they would from any other product. Packaging is part of that equation.

Sierra Bags has emerged in this area as a leader in providing high quality packaging that dispensaries, distributors and producing/growing facilities can use to better package their products. Many of those who work at Sierra Bags have been in the packaging business for more than 30 years.

All the products from Sierra Bags are recyclable and made from natural materials at the company’s operations in Reno, Nevada. They provide different types of products depending on the customers.

Sierra Bags For Dispensaries

Sierra Bags produces “exit bags” that are used in dispensaries to package products for sale. These bags meet high standards for having child-resistant packaging using a certified child-guard zipper. The company also offers a “Sierra Safety” zipper that Sierra Bags developed. It is a lower-cost, child-resistant zipper.

They offer exit bags in small, medium and large sizes. Each features high barrier, opaque packaging that conceals the contents and protects the buyer’s privacy.

Sierra Bags is certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Idealliance, and as delivering poison prevention packaging as recognized by federal regulation.

Packaging Services For Dispensaries

The company also has its own graphic design department that allows for custom designs for cannabis bags. The company does its own:

  • Graphics
  • Plate making
  • Printing
  • Laminating
  • Slitting
  • Waxing
  • Sheeting
  • Cutting
  • Bagging
  • Pouching

Because they have all these capabilities in-house, they can create new designs or redo existing designs and get them to dispensaries in a fast turnaround time – usually measured in days, not weeks.

Sierra Bags for Growers

Sierra Bags also offers cannabis bags for growers that protect marijuana flower from sunlight, artificial light, and oxygen. The bags are designed to store large amounts of cannabis. The bags can be fully branded for the grower.

The product lineup includes half-pound, 1 pound, and 2.5-pound bags. Bags are available in both silver and clear designs. Some bags are also designed to be reopened, emptied, refilled and resealed without losing any of the bag’s protective qualities.

Sierra Bags Community Outreach Efforts

Like all the best companies in any industry, Sierra Bags also has focused on community outreach efforts. The company has been around since 1924 handling packaging for a variety of industries. They have developed deep roots in the Nevada community and show this social responsibility in a variety of ways.

For example, Sierra Bags routinely supports charities and philanthropic efforts. They also both practice and promote ethical labor practices. They do 100% of their business with companies that are in the United States because “we know exactly where our material comes from and that helps us to ensure the quality of product we produce for you.”

For dispensaries and growers, packaging can prove as important as the product itself. Sierra Bags is providing the industry with a needed service, offering bags and original graphic designs that both protect and promote the cannabis flower.
