Mylar bags are the absolute best marijuana bags for cannabis flower - there’s just no doubt about it. Mylar, like Kleenex, is a proprietary product name, but we’ll go into that more later.
Mylar, though we know it as a common player in the cannabis packaging industry, is a fairly common material in all industries. If you’ve ever purchased a bag of coffee beans, a silvery balloon with lettering, or an emergency warming blanket, you’ve purchased and handled mylar. It’s a thick, plastic-y, often shiny material beloved for its ultra-resilient, impact-proof qualities. The main reason it’s used to make coffee pouches, though, is because mylar can be made into unbelievably smell proof bags.
Coffee, like marijuana, emits imposingly strong aromas that are not for everyone, yet coffee is sold in almost every grocery store we enter. But we don’t get hit in the face with the smell of coffee when we enter the store, nor do we smell it at all until the moment we open the packaging at home. That’s because thick, airtight mylar bags are completely smell proof, and they perform just as well as weed bags as they do in coffee pouch form.
Just as smell proof mylar bags are cherished in the food industry, they’ve become cherished members of the cannabis community, as well. Resealable bags made from mylar are one of the most secure places for consumers to store their weed. They’re also a no-brainer packaging and transportation choice for cultivators and manufacturers - tough, airtight, aesthetic, smell proof, resealable mylar bags give you peace of mind knowing your freshly cured bud or edibles will remain in tip-top shape until your customers are ready to open them.
Follow along with us to learn all about our extensive collection of compliant, customizable mylar bags. From classic matte black pinch N slides to gold foil vista zipper bags, we have everything you need to package your marijuana in compliant style.
What Are Mylar Bags?
Mylar bags are a special kind of plastic smell proof bags that are used to securely package marijuana, hemp, edibles, and dozens of food and bath products (nuts, coffee, Epsom salts, etc.). They’ve become a go-to exit packaging option for a number of other cannabis products as well, including vape cartridges and concentrate jars. Besides being odor proof bags, most mylar weed bags for sale are completely or partially opaque.
Opacity is becoming an increasingly relevant aspect of compliance packaging in many states, including here in California where we’re based. Even in states where marijuana is completely recreationally and medically legal, there are still numerous restrictions placed upon it, and concealment is a huge restriction. But besides having to meet state laws, many consumers actually prefer opaque, smell proof weed bags.
While we all work in the industry and proudly include the word “marijuana” in our emails and online profiles, there are still people who prefer discretion surrounding their cannabis consumption. Even for those who shout it from the rooftops that they partake, concealing cannabis purchases with 420 smell proof bags when leaving the dispensary and traveling home can be a matter of safety and legality.
Smell proof, airtight, resealable mylar bags are barrier bags for marijuana and its consumers. They protect the marijuana from air, light, and humidity, ensuring its freshness for your customers. Plus, those layers of protection mitigate the risk of theft, seizure, or loss while those customers travel to their destinations. Resealable smell proof bags make it easy for your customers to continually rely on the discretion and protection of mylar weed foil bags.
What Is Mylar?
We said we’d talk more about mylar later on, so here you go. Mylar was invented by DuPont Company in the early 1950s and is now presently a trademark of Dupont-Teijin. It’s a special kind of stretched polyethylene terephthalate (PET) called BoPet (biaxially oriented polyethylene terephthalate), which can be more simply explained as polyester film. You may notice a textile similarity between thin mylar bags and rolls of film, actually!
Once mylar was introduced to the world, the food industry latched onto it immediately. Mylar is exponentially less permeable to gasses, especially oxygen, than other common packaging materials. Manufacturers are able to create scent proof bags from mylar that can keep all sorts of food fresh and safe for long periods of time. Mylar bags’ airtight, smell proof qualities have since gotten them noticed by many other industries, including the marijuana industry.
Add the resealable bags feature and BAM, you’ve got the perfect airtight, smell proof weed bags that act as exit packaging AND reusable home weed storage for your customers. Now, smell proof mylar bags are commonplace at grow operations, dispensaries, collectives, and in most stoners’ homes. Mylar marijuana bags provide protection from air, light, and humidity - three of weed’s four biggest enemies (heat is the last one!) - ensuring your nugs will remain dank, potent, and aromatic until the last bud is blazed.

Can Weed Bags Prolong Shelf Life?
Prolonging the shelf life of weed is one of mylar bags’ number one jobs! Remember when we said that air, light, and humidity are three of weed’s four archenemies, and how mylar bags are particularly adept at blocking all of those things out? Well, you can probably see why mylar makes such fantastic airtight bags for weed then, right?
In general, cannabis packaging listed as “airtight” is also “smell proof”; if it’s airtight, scent can’t escape - and the same is true vice versa. “Odor proof barrier bags” is a pretty good descriptor of what mylar marijuana bags are because the “odor proof bags” aspect indicates the smell proof, airtight qualities that keep weed fresh and under wraps. The “barrier bags” aspect indicates the trusted strength of mylar.
Seriously, mylar smell proof pouch bags are tough. Just think of the coffee bags at the store. You pick one up and toss it in your cart, never once for a moment fearful that it will break open and spill beans across the aisle. That's because you know from experience (and the hardy feel when you pick it up) that those bags are resilient. The same thing goes for mylar odor barrier bags full of flower - your customers can toss them in a purse, a backpack, or a drawer without fear of damaging your valuable product.
Many cultivators/dispensaries also decide to vacuum seal their mylar bags for sale as this removes excess air. The less air inside, the fresher your weed will stay for longer. Marijuana vacuum seal bags made from impact-resistant, smell proof mylar are truly one of the best ways to ensure your products will remain in good condition for weeks, even months, on end.
Are Resealable Bags Child Resistant?
We make two closure varieties of child resistant mylar bags for weed and edibles. Numbers 1 and 4 under the above “Black Mylar Bags” heading and number 3 under “White Mylar Bags” are our child resistant resealable packaging bags. They come in either matte or glossy white or black options in several varying sizes/shapes.
Child resistant smell proof vacuum bags are essential in some states and appreciated by most consumers in the cannabis community. Child resistant cannabis packaging laws are implemented to prevent kids from getting their hands on THC/CBD products, and they also mitigate spills. Part of child resistant packaging is often the resealable quality, which saves stoners from picking bits of nug out of their carpets.
But, of course, the most crucial aspect of child resistant packaging - how it resists children trying to open it - is the most important thing here. Parents and other caregivers who partake are particularly grateful for and seek out this type of packaging specifically. With child resistant packaging laws in place, we can all feel safer knowing our cannabis products are less likely to end up in little kid’s hands.
One important thing to note is that child resistantdoes not mean child proof. Child resistant marijuana smell proof bags must pass a test that keeps under five years olds from opening them for a reasonable amount of time until A) a parent finds them and intervenes or B) the child gives up. Typically, that’s around five minutes. But remember, children are very clever and very quick. Some states also require resealable mylar bags or plastic containers for edible packaging that contains more than one serving.
While our child resistant, smell proof vacuum seal bags are made from impact-resistant mylar, you can absolutely cut through them with scissors. So, just because the container is child resistantdoes not mean it’s child proof. There will always be a fast-acting, clever kid who thinks to cut the mylar marijuana bags open before a parent intervenes.

Is Mylar Recyclable?

However, there are recycling programs/centers that will accept Mylar, you may just need to do a little digging to find one in your area. There are also send-out recycling programs like TerraCycle that work to accept and repurpose all materials/packaging/products.
Can Dogs Smell Through Vacuum Sealed Bags?
While everyone (including ourselves) advertises their Mylar weed bags as “smell proof,” there’s always a chance that trained dogs will catch a whiff of the goods within. The most common reason this happens isn’t because the bag is porous - rather, it’s often because the packagers were handling the flower and the bags as they filled each one. Their hands transfer cannabis oils/particles onto the outside of the bag, which any dog would be able to smell. To be extra cautious, wipe your weed bags down with a wet wipe.
