As a THC or CBD manufacturer, you need to make sure your products speak louder than the competition. However, you must also meet regulatory compliance standards. Quick, easy, on-demand labeling solutions help you do just that by allowing you to meet the retail labeling challenges of this rapidly growing industry. Here’s your guide to the best labeling systems for your cannabis or CBD business.
Features to look for in cannabis and CBD labeling systems
Whether you’re a cultivator, distributor or retailer, customizable, on-demand labels help your cannabis or CBD business stay on top of your game. As you’re searching for the right labeling system for your production line, here are some features to look for:
- Scalable: The cannabis industry has plenty of moving parts, and you need flexibility in your labeling system to stay ahead. Look for systems that allow you to quickly prototype labels and easily update them as needed. Scalability allows you to create the right labels at the right volume, for your exact business needs.
- Affordable: When you invest in custom labeling systems rather than preprinted bulk labels, you reduce waste and cut costs. Look for a system that allows you to print on the spot, in the exact volume you need.
- Intuitive: The best cannabis labeling systems feature intuitive touchscreen operator panels for easy operation. Some systems feature digital PLC memory that allows for quick changeover times, so you can adjust labels quickly and easily.
Now that you understand what to look for in a cannabis/CBD labeling system, it’s time to get to know some of the best cannabis printing and labeling solutions.
