Inexpensive Cannabis Packaging with Low MOQs (Minimum Order Quantities)
As a small business owner, you know that you need to create professional-looking cannabis packaging for your CBD products. But if you’re just starting out, paying for preprinted CBD tincture boxes or display POS/POP boxes can be expensive. You either must pay top dollar for a low minimum order quantity (MOQ) or get cheap printing from China but must buy thousands of units. This can be a huge waste of money when you must update designs or no longer carry a product and end up throwing thousands of preprinted boxes and bags out. Not all is lost though! Here are three inexpensive ways to improve your packaging without breaking the bank.
Clear CBD Packaging Boxes (PET)
CBD Tincture Packaging, Delta 8 & CBD Gummy Packaging, CBD Topicals Packaging, Delta 8 Vapes Packaging, Bundles
Selling things like tinctures or gummy jars is great but sometimes you need additional packaging for each bottle or jar to go inside. An outside box for your hemp product does much more than just add a cleaner, more professional look to your product. For this, a great work-around to buying thousands of preprinted cardboard boxes is using Clear PET Boxes which have some amazing benefits:
- Transparent box allows customer to see the actual product.
- PET is sturdy and can be stacked on top of each other for large orders
- Separates each product for easy shipping without the need for bubble wrap on every product
- Provides room for additional labels.
- Looks amazing on a shelf (if you sell wholesale to retailers)
- Low minimum order quantities as low as 100 boxes
- Additional Discounts when you buy 500-1,000 boxes
- Can be used for multiple product variations using the same box
- Come in 186 different sizes
Where can you buy Clear PET CBD Boxes in the USA?
I recommend the Box Depot’s Clear PET Boxes for smaller quantities with quick shipping from the USA. For larger quantities above a few thousand, look for a reputable China Supplier.
What is the best size PET Box for a 30mL CBD Tincture?
The best size is 1-3/8″ x 4-1/4″ x 1-3/8″. Please double check this size prior to buying a large quantity as tincture and dropper top sizes vary some.
Mylar Hemp Gummy Bags
CBD Gummies Packaging Bags, Delta 8 Packaging, Hemp Flower Packaging
The second way is by using flexible mylar bags as part of your packaging solution. Mylar bags are great because they come in a variety of sizes and styles from simple zip-top bags to more elaborate stand-up pouches so you can pick the one that best fits your needs. They work great for products like Delta 8 THC Gummies. Plus, they’re relatively inexpensive compared to other types of materials so they won’t break the bank even on low MOQ orders. And since they’re lightweight and fit in a much smaller box than jars, you’ll save a lot on shipping costs.
You can buy blank mylar bags in either flat or standup bags, in various colors and sizes, and with or without a transparent window in the front to show off the products. The transparent windows also come in a variety of shapes. The one we’re focusing on today is a cannabis-leaf-shaped transparent window which you can buy in these specifications and variations.
- Multiple Sizes including 5.9” x 8.0”, 3.9″ x 5.4″, and 2.9″ x 4.3’
- No Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ
- Additional Pricing Discounts if you buy 100, 250, or 1,000 bags
- Prices from $0.13 – $0.45 per bag
- Heat-sealable area – to make tamper-proof
- Upright display ability with expandable bottom
- Clear viewing window
- 5.1 mil thick
- Rounded Corners
- Resealable Zip-lock Top
- Solid Back Area with room for a Label
Eco-Friendly Delta 8 Vape Cartridge Boxes
Delta 8 Vape Cartridge Packaging
Just starting out a Delta 8 Vape Cartridge Line with multiple strains and custom printed packaging is too expensive because you must buy thousands of each strain. Introducing Dragon Chewer, a USA company who sells recyclable vape cartridge packaging at low MOQs. There are several options at Dragon Chewer to choose from. The one I’d like to go over is the Cart Card which is a Child Resistant Vape Cartridge Box made from recyclable materials. This Vape Cart Packaging comes in packs of 100 for as low as $0.32 per unit. You can buy just one 100 pack for $39.95 which is a great option when just starting out or doing product development. What I love about these vape cart boxes is the amount of room to place a label on both the front and the back. They can also easily be painted if you’d like to customize them. Here’s what they look like once complete.
- Affordable packaging solution
- Sustainable biodegradable packaging
- Made using Recyclable Materials
- Large Areas for Labelling on front and back
- Child resistant locking mechanism
- Product Display Window
- Display Hanging Hole
- Terrapaq HIGHLOCK sustainable line
- EcoPure® Additive Material
- USDA Certified
- Accelerated biodegradation additive
- ASTM D-5511 Certified
Here’s what they have to say about sustainable packaging:
“Sustainable biodegradable packaging is a top priority for our company and the entire cannabis packaging industry. Eco-friendly green packaging products are far too often not child resistant, which makes them unusable for marijuana packaging solutions. We set out to change all of this with our new enhanced biodegradable EcoPure® child resistant packaging line. EcoPure® material is now available for the Terrapaq HIGHLOCK line – Made in the USA – sustainable packaging products. Our new green material line is a huge push for sustainable packaging. EcoPure® provides enhanced biodegradation using an additive and is ASTM D-5511 certified.”
Cannabis business owners know how important it is to have high-quality packaging that stands out from the competition and appeals to customers, but they also know how expensive those custom printed CBD boxes can be!
When you’re just starting out with a brand, purchasing preprinted tincture, gummy, and vape boxes can be extremely expensive. You either pay top dollar for a low MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) in the USA or you get cheap printing from China but must buy thousands of units.

Fortunately, there are plenty of inexpensive ways to spruce up you’re packaging without breaking the bank.
