Packaging can be a powerful marketing tool. Your product packaging is the first thing potential customers see. Done right, it can help set your products apart from the competition and boost the image of your business. Good packaging can also improve the perceived quality of your product. The value of all these benefits is easy to see when you consider the vast and ever-expanding array of vaping products available in the marketplace. The vaping product space is brutally competitive, but good packaging can give you the edge you need to succeed.
The value of good vape cartridge packaging is more than skin deep, though. Packaging can also help protect your products from damage and dust during transit and while on display. And considering how easily tetrahydrocannabinol degrades into cannabinol when exposed to light, air, and heat, good packaging also helps protect the quality of your products.
The value of good vape cartridge packaging is not limited to making a good impression, in-transit protection, and keeping your products fresher for longer. Good packaging can even improve usability and reusability by, say making a product easier to store or access – think of the boxes with hang tabs you see in many retail outlets.
This is the most common type of material used for vape cartridge packaging. It’s ubiquity – nay, popularity – is not surprising, if you consider the advantages of the material. First, cardboard is remarkably flexible. You’re probably familiar with corrugated cardboard, the thick, relatively rigid material used to make boxes for shipping merchandise. You are definitely familiar with the thin-walled variety used to make boxes for packaging the items we find on store shelves. Cardboard is also cheap, can be designed to fold around any shape, and printed for branding purposes. The material is also environmentally friendly; cardboard boxes can be reused or recycled, and they’re biodegradable.
This is the second most common type of material used for vape cartridge packaging. It has several advantages. Plastic resists damp and temperature variations very well. The material is also lightweight, which is why plastic packaging accounts for a small fraction of shipping weight even though it is so widely used. It can also be molded to fit virtually any shape. The material is also cheap. Plastic is also durable – too durable, critics say, pointing to its ecological impact. This durability actually makes the material sustainable as it means, for example, that plastic packaging can be reused for a very long time. Plastic is also recyclable.
Glass is also widely used for vape cartridge packaging. While brittle, it is relatively robust. Glass is also inert – a remarkably important attribute when it comes to cannabis, which can be very reactive. The material is also infinitely recyclable, and glass containers can be reused for a very long time. And if you want to show off your products to good effect, few materials beat glass. Its transparency can, admittedly, be a problem – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) morphs into the less psychoactive cannabinol (CBN) when exposed to light – but that’s easily solved; you can either store clear glass containers in a dark room, or use dark-colored glass containers.
Wood is used where a warm, luxurious look and feel is important. This material is mainly used to package premium vape cartridges. Wood is a robust and excellent insulator, making it an excellent choice for vape cartridge packaging.
Metal is rarely used for THC cartridge packaging. However, it’s a great choice where extra robustness or an uber-luxurious look is a priority.
By Form Factor
Boxes are the staple of the vape cartridge packaging world. They come in a variety of form factors. The most common, at least from a consumer perspective, are the slim, tall boxes used to package 0.5ml and 1ml vape cartridges. Others are shaped like cigar boxes and come with flip-top panels for easy access. Boxes with hang tabs are a particular hit with pharmacies, medical nurseries, and other retail outlets because they can be used for both storage and display.
Blister Packaging with Insert Cards
Like boxes with hang tabs, blister packaging with insert cards are popular with retailers because they can be used for both storage and display. In most cases, this type of packaging is made from a combination of materials – cardboard and plastic, wood and plastic, or even wood, plastic, and glass.
If none of the form factors available excite you, consider ordering custom THC cartridge packaging. You can ask for whatever size, material, or design that strikes your fancy.

Vape cartridges are increasing the Cannabis delivery channel of choice for most patients. There are good reasons for that – compared with smoking the flower, vape cartridges are far more discreet, for example. In addition, they do not leave behind the signature scent we associate with Cannabis. These devices are also highly portable, making them ideal for traveling, and are cheaper to use because replacement cartridges can be had for a song.
Because of these and other advantages, vape cartridges are growing in popularity. In some locales, sales of these devices are actually outpacing those of traditional weed, which would have been unimaginable a few years ago. This trend may be here to stay.
Investing in good vape cartridge packaging is a must if you want to capture and retain a chunk of this growing market. If you offer a high-quality product, the packaging should communicate this fact to potential customers. You only have a few seconds to create a positive impression; don’t waste them with poor quality packaging. Let DIZPOT design some custom packaging exclusively for you!
