Mylar bags have become the premier packaging method for most cannabis dispensaries and their various products. Mylar bags house edibles, concentrates, and raw flower extremely well. They are very popular for a variety of reasons: they are child-resistant, so you can rest assured that no children will be getting into your flower or edibles. This type of security is sure to bring you peace of mind. They create an airtight seal that is sure to keep your product as fresh as the day you received it. Along with their physical characteristics, mylar bags are also very cost-effective, making them one of the most inexpensive packaging options for your business. 




Evolving from the poor packaging of the black-market days, mylar bags are the newest method for storing and delivering cannabis to and from dispensaries. No longer are the days of flimsy sandwich bags and repurposed medication bottles. Mylar is the trade name of a material named biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (boPET) that has been around since the mid-1950s. The first commercial use for mylar arrived in the food market. Its cheap cost and sturdy air-tight construction made it extremely appealing to the food packaging industry. This style of packaging is used for a plethora of food options from nuts and crackers to fruits and vegetables. It’s these same characteristics that make mylar bags so useful in the cannabis industry for several products. Many cannabis businesses began to realize the potential after housing their edibles and expanding to their other products as well. Mylar bags are big and when housing flower is typically best reserved for larger orders.   




Thick mylar is extremely smell-resistant as well as light-resistant, which is perfect for sensitive cannabis buds. Sunlight UV rays can affect the trichomes on cannabis flower, so therefore having an opaque storage solution can be extremely beneficial for your many patients. One intriguing feature of mylar bags is their metallic plastic nature. Mylar bags are synthesized with a layer of aluminum that creates the package’s opacity. This aluminum blocks out any unwanted UV rays as well as adds an extra layer of strength from any tears or rips. Mylar bags can be easily customized, which makes them appealing for countless cannabis businesses. Mylar bags sold by Biohazard Inc. can be customized with your brand’s logo or label, adding true individuality to your packaging. No matter what your imagination can conjure, we here at Biohazard Inc. can imprint whatever design you would like on your mylar bags so that they are aesthetically pleasing to your customers and professionally represent your company.
