The Zenlock Child-Resistant system is the first all-paper rigid box solution in cannabis packaging.
In 2020, California passed regulations requiring that all cannabis products must be enclosed in child-resistant packaging. After analyzing the legislature, other CR packages and testing requirements, the results were clear: too much plastic and too many overly complicated CR mechanisms. The three design requirements also became clear: recycled and recyclable materials only, elevated product presentation, and a flexible CR mechanism to accommodate diverse needs for cannabis products.
