<strong>What is Threading for Cannabis Jars, Dab Containers, and Pre-Roll Tubes?</strong>

The caps on cannabis jars, dab containers, and pre-roll tubes are paramount in ensuring that a packaging’s contents remain pristine. Still, the lids should fit snugly on the neck of the containers to effectively prevent leakage, evaporation, and potentially dangerous contamination. That’s where the threading on caps and packaging containers comes in handy. 

What Is Threading?

Threading refers to the ribbed protrusions surrounding the neck of a container. They are designed to seal a product securely inside its packaging by fastening around a matching cap or closure. Threaded caps are also called “screw-on” lids and have a unique system of measurement that doesn’t allow different sizes to be interchangeable. 

How Are Threaded Closure Sizes Defined?

Screw-on closures are defined using two digits expressed as 28/400, 50/410, and so on. The first number is the diameter of the closure or container opening in millimeters. The diameter is measured across the inside of the cap or the outer diameter of the packaging. 

The second number denotes the thread style. This includes the thread count, which is the number of times the threads go around the neck of the closure, and the height of the neck finish. Here’s a breakdown of the most common thread styles and how they are expressed.

  • 1 thread turn – 400
  • 1.5 thread turns – 410
  • 2 thread turns (Tall neck finish) – 415
  • 2 thread turns (Narrow threads) – 425
  • Thick threads/buttress finish – 430

Therefore, when defining the thread closure sizes of jars, bottles, and other containers, we use the diameter of the neck opening and the thread style. For instance, if the diameter of the neck of your cannabis jar is 28mm and the threads only make one turn around it, your container has a threading of 28/400. These measurements are paramount when picking the perfect caps for weed jars, dab containers, and pre-roll tubes.
