Pop-Top Packaging is Taking Over the Cannabis Industry

MedLock | May 16, 2023

Pop-top packaging is becoming increasingly popular as a safe, convenient, and efficient way to package various cannabis products. This type of packaging features a built-in pop-top lid that can be easily opened. Pop-top packaging offers a number of benefits for both consumers and manufacturers. In this article, we will explore the advantages of pop-top packaging and why it has become such a popular choice for many industries.

Benefits of Pop-Top Packaging

Pop-top packaging comes with several key benefits. Whether you are looking for more affordable packaging with less bulk, or a more sustainable product, pop-top packaging has a lot to offer.


One of the most obvious benefits of pop-top packaging is the convenience it offers. With a simple squeeze of the tube, consumers can easily pop the lid to access the contents of the package without the need for scissors or other tools. This makes pop-top packaging ideal for a number of products, especially pre-rolls.

Safety: Child Resistant Tested and Certified

Pop-top packaging is completely child resistant tested and certified. CannaLock™ pop-top tubes are certified according to the US CPSC and 16 CFR 1700.200 standards for poison prevention. Our pop-top jars are child resistant certified according to the ISO 8317 standard.

Unlike traditional packaging that may require sharp tools to open, pop-top packaging can be opened easily without the risk of injury. However, for the cannabis industry, it should be noted that label placement may potentially impede one's ability to open any child resistant cannabis packaging. This can be avoided by using our larger pop-top tubes and pop-top jars.


Another benefit of pop-top packaging is its portability. Many pop-top packages are designed to be lightweight and compact, making them easy to transport and store. For consumers going to a concert or another outdoor event with designated cannabis consumption areas, pop-top packaging is small and won't weigh down pockets, bags, or purses.


Pop-top packaging is also able to keep products fresh for longer periods of time. The airtight seal created by the pop-top lid helps to prevent air and moisture from entering the package, which can cause the contents to spoil or lose their flavor. However, it should be noted that if you are using pop-top packaging for dry flower, it is recommended to add a humidity pack to further prevent the bud from drying out.

Price Efficient

Since the cap is attached to the main storage vessel, only one packaging component is purchased. No more separate orders of caps or ordering additional caps for backup. Pop-top packaging lacks the bulk of other packaging choices making them the preferred packaging of choice for a variety of cannabis and pharmaceutical products.

Environmentally Friendly

Pop-top packaging is becoming an increasingly popular choice for manufacturers due to its sustainability benefits. One problem with many packaging products out there is that one packaging unit may be comprised of several different materials. With pop-top packaging, the entire storage vessel plus closure are made of the same plastic.

In addition, most pop-top packaging is made from plastic that can be reused, repurposed, or recycled after use. Furthermore, the compact design of pop-top packaging means that less material is required to produce each package, thereby reducing waste and lowering the environmental impact of the manufacturing process.

Our pop-top cannabis packaging and pop-top pharmaceutical packaging products are made entirely from polypropylene (PP) plastic.

Combine With Other Packaging

If you are trying to avoid inconvenient label placement over the lid of pop top tubes, they can always be paired with our resealable pouches. These pouches are available in mylar plastic, recyclable plastic, and biodegradable formats.

Ideal for a Variety of Products

Since pop-top packaging comes in several sizes, it can be the ideal packaging choice for a variety of products. Not only do we offer pop-top tubes with a larger diameter, but we also offer jars in 13DR, 19DR, 30DR, and 60DR fill capacities to accommodate even more cannabis products. Pop-top tubes and jars can be used for:

  • Single king-size pre-rolls

  • Multi-pack pre-rolls

  • Blunts

  • Capsules

  • Tablets

  • Edibles

  • Seeds

  • Dry flower

NOTE: Again, if you are using pop-top packaging for dried flower, adding a humidity pack is recommended to further preserve the integrity of the cannabis flower.


Pop-top packaging offers a number of benefits for both consumers and manufacturers. From its convenience and portability, to its child resistant closure and recyclable material, pop-top packaging has become a popular choice for a wide range of products across many industries. As sustainability becomes an increasingly important consideration for consumers and manufacturers alike, we can expect to see even more licensed cannabis producers and perhaps even pharmacies adopting pop-top packaging as a more eco-friendly option for their products.
