Mylar is a polyester film originally developed by DuPont in the mid-1950s. Mylar possesses a number of innovative properties including high tensile strength; chemical stability; and gas, UV, and moisture resistance.
Mylar is known as the gold standard for long-term food packaging. Food products that are commonly packaged in Mylar bags include coffee, chips, beef jerky, and spices.
When organic substances like cannabis are exposed to oxygen, the substance will eventually spoil. The gas resistance feature of Mylar bags means that oxygen won’t come into contact with the contents of the bag, effectively preventing oxidation and preserving the quality of the substance.
Light is another natural element that can degrade the quality of cannabis products over time. The opaqueness of the Mylar bag prevents UV exposure to the bag’s contents.
The tight seal of the Mylar bag prevents the product’s aroma from leaking out. Mylar bags are excellent in preserving the aroma of your cannabis products while simultaneously blocking external odors from affecting the products.
Unlike plastic containers, Mylar bags are not made up of any chemical toxins or ingredients. This makes Mylar bags the ideal option for long-term cannabis storage for distributors and dispensaries.
Mylar bags are puncture and tear resistant thanks to its durable aluminum foil layers. Mylar bag packaging is guaranteed to keep your product safe and fresh after purchase. They are also freezer-friendly, so refrigerator storage won’t be a problem.
The aforementioned aluminum foil layers of the Mylar bag ensure waterproof storage for your products. Its robust waterproof protection makes mold, bacteria, and fungi exposure practically impossible.
After tearing, Mylar bags can be resealed and reused until the contents are empty. Even then, these bags can store than just cannabis products – just give the give the bag a thorough clean before reuse.
Both Mylar bags and glass jars are popular and reliable cannabis packaging options for dispensaries. They share a number of advantages over other packaging options. For instance, glass jars and Mylar bags are both reusable and provide an airtight seal to maintain product freshness. Both options are made from non-toxic materials, which also contributes to product freshness in the long term. Mylar bags and glass jars are also easily customizable to truly make your products your own.
One major difference between Mylar bags and glass jars is that Mylar bags are opaque whereas most glass jars are transparent. The contents of a glass jar can be exposed to UV rays, and too much UV exposure can degrade the product. However, this issue can be fixed by opting for tinted glass jars that limit UV exposure or storing the clear glass jars in any cool, dry, and dark location. Also, glass jars tend to be more expensive than Mylar bags.
Ultimately, the decision of whether Mylar bags or glass jars are best depends on your preference and local regulations on cannabis packaging. Do some research on what local authorities permit – for example, all California retailers are expected to package sold units in opaque exit bags at the point of dispensing – before making the decision in purchasing either of these cannabis packaging options.
There are few steps that need to be taken to ensure that keep your products fresh in Mylar bags.
