Knowing the rules
By far the biggest challenge of cannabis packaging is creating beautiful and functional designs within the limitations posed by strict labeling requirements in Oregon and Washington.
With minimum point sizes, long disclaimers, and tedious label information, solving the problem of arranging all required elements onto tiny pieces of packaging begins to feel like an art form.
Cannabis is still evolving
With constant updates and changes to the rules and guidelines, attending labeling and packaging workshops at the OLCC have been helpful in helping me more deeply understand what the OLCC is looking for during the approval process.
