THC and CBD vape cartridges are selling like hotcakes for their potent, convenient, efficient, and flavorful qualities, but have you considered the importance of cart packaging? We’re not only talking about the empty glass cartridges to fill with your vapable concentrates. We’re also talking about cartridge box customization AND legally required functional aspects.
There is so much more to vape cartridge packaging than you may think, and even if you don’t care about trendy cartridge box designs, you definitely need to adhere to the legal requirements.
Vape carts, also called dab carts/pens and vape pens, surged in popularity as the recreational cannabis industry grew over the past decade. Even as marijuana has become fully legal in many states, there are still consumers who prefer discretion around their cannabis consumption.
There are also consumers who seek convenience, efficiency, and diversity in their cannabis routines. Terpene-rich, pen-sized concentrate vaporizers offer all of those qualities to consumers; they’re exceptionally easy to use, discreet, potent, and can be made with a huge range of flavors. Each dab cart is a unique experience.
Dab cartridges are an incredible and lucrative invention, but these days, they’re nothing without proper dab cart packaging. From the quality of the glass cartridges to customized branding on the boxes, from tamper-evident packaging to child-resistant containers, there is so much to consider about choosing and designing a cartridge box.
Catering to the modern cannabis community AND meeting compliance packaging requirements are both of the utmost importance if you’re going to successfully and legally make and sell vape carts. But don’t stress, because we can help you check both of those boxes.
What Is Cart Packaging?
Dab cart packaging includes fillable glass cartridges, mouthpieces, batteries, filling machines, blister packaging, plastic/paper tubes, and cardboard dab cart boxes for making and distributing concentrate vape pens. The glass cartridges, mouthpieces, batteries, and filling machines are used to create and fill vape cartridges, and the vape cartridge packaging (tubes/boxes) is designed to keep those cartridges safe and secure. Essentially, dab cartridge packaging includes everything you need to make and market dab carts and pens.
Vape pen cartridges wholesale are some of the top products in our cart packaging collection. With concentrate vapes more popular than ever, mass-production is kind of a must for any manufacturers hoping to make a name for themselves. Our vast collection of cartridges makes wholesale ordering easy as can be. For example, we have all of the CCell cartridge packaging you could ever need!
Glass cartridges, mouthpieces, and batteries aside for a moment, the blister packaging, cardboard boxes, and plastic/paper tubes are ultra-essential aspects of successfully selling dab carts. The first thing most companies want to consider about vape pen packaging is the design - “Can the brand logo fit on that tube? Does that cartridge box come in our brand’s colors?” Those are excellent things to consider, but the first thing you need to look into about vape cartridge packaging is meeting your state’s compliance packaging requirements.
Compliance packaging laws include requirements like tamper-evident labeling, child-resistant caps/boxes/containers, and opaque exit bags. But here’s the good news: the vast majority of our compliance packaging is completely customizable! So, before you start to fret about the aesthetics of your wax cartridge packaging, be sure to double-check your state’s requirements and narrow your search to include only those cartridge pen packaging options that meet those regulations.
Now, you’re free to design the customized packaging cartridge boxes or containers of your dreams! From child-resistant, customizable slide boxes to holographic, customizable paper boxes (which may need to be placed in child-resistant exit bags), we have a huge range of trendy, stylish, functional, secure, eye-catching dab cart boxes that you can personalize to heart’s content.

Is Dab Cart Packaging Affected by the PACT Act?
Yes, shipping policies for dab cart packaging are affected by the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act. The PACT Act was originally enacted in 2009 to regulate cigarette and tobacco sales and shipments. It was recently amended in late 2020 to include Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), which now includes vaporizer batteries, vape cartridges, mouthpieces, and other vape-making and smoking equipment, even if they don’t contain nicotine (THC/CBD cartridge pen packaging included).
The PACT Act enforces strict shipping regulations on all ENDS products, most significantly that they can no longer ship through the United States Postal Service (USPS). Other private shipping companies (UPS, FedEx) have followed suit and implemented their own ENDS shipping bans.
Additionally, age verification will need to take place upon receipt of ENDS products. While there have previously been business-to-business exceptions, moving forward, all ENDS products will need to ship with LTL freight companies. This unfortunately significantly increases the shipping costs of our cartridge packaging for sale.
We understand that the PACT Act is there to increase safety and legality surrounding tobacco and ENDS products, but we also understand that this is a major setback for the burgeoning cannabis concentrate vape market. For those of us in the industry, we’ve been viewing marijuana/THC/CBD as a therapeutic, natural medicine that can also be used recreationally.
It’s frustrating that vape cartridge packaging, even dab cart boxes, intended to house something as soothing as CBD, as balancing as THC, as uplifting as certain terpenes, is included in the PACT Act. But now it’s time for us all to work together and find a way to operate with the PACT Act for successful, legally compliant shipping and handling methods for empty cartridge packaging.

When you’re bulk ordering cartridge packaging, be sure to consider all of the components you’ll need, and definitely don’t forget about the compliance laws in your state. If you’re buying glass cartridges, make sure to choose compatible tips and compliant packaging for the completed cartridges. If you choose clear blister packaging, your state may require you to place those in opaque, CR mylar bags at the point of sale.
Thankfully, our extensive online shop has everything you need to design attractive packaging for display in your shop and aesthetic: compliant exit packaging. Plain brown bags are a thing of the past these days as customized, tamper evident, child resistant mylar exit bags make concealing our cannabis goods a stylish, smell proof affair.

Our goal is to help you create enticing, compliant cartridges and cartridge packaging that stands out on the shelves more than any other brand.

We all know how important it is to shine bright in the cannabis industry and our cartridge packaging is designed to help you do just that.
While you’re designing your perfect dab carts, batteries, custom boxes, etc, we want to remind you about our exceptional collection of automatic cartridge filling machines! We carry two Thompson Duke cartridge filling machines: an automatic and a semi-automatic. We also carry a semi-automatic cartridge mouthpiece fastening machine and a manual arbor press cartridge capper machine.
These state-of-the-art machines can fill and cap hundreds or thousands of vape cartridges a day (depending on the style you choose), increasing your production exponentially. While you ramp up your cart packaging designs, you can also miraculously ramp up your company’s efficiency with any one of our four available cartridge filling machines.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cart Packaging
How To Store Oil Cartridges
The best place to store oil cartridges is anywhere dark, cool, and dry. The biggest enemies of cannabis - both cured flower and extracts - are light, heat, moisture, and air. If you bought oil cartridges in and need to keep them safe until use/sale, we recommend storing them in airtight, opaque containers in a non-busy, cool, dry room. For dispensaries: back rooms generally work just fine as long as they meet the temperature and light conditions. For consumers: bedside table drawers and closets are good storage spots.
Are Cart Packs Child Resistant?
We make numerous child resistant cartridge packaging options. We also make non-child resistant cartridge packaging, which, depending on your state, may need to be placed in child resistant exit packaging.
Are There Custom Cartridge Packaging Options?
Yes! We make a vast range of customizable cartridge packaging, including: cardboard or plastic tubes and boxes, blister packaging, and even a customizable glass vape cartridge.
What Is The PACT Act?
The Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act exists to monitor and regulate the sale and distribution of tobacco, nicotine, and (as of a recent amendment) vaping products - particularly to keep it from ending up with kids. The newly revised PACT Act stipulates that Electronic Nicotine Device Systems (ENDS) - the definition of which now includes non-nicotine vape liquids (THC/CBD) - cannot ship through USPS, and FedEx and UPS have since announced they will no longer ship ENDS, either. That leaves the only shipping option of ENDS (vape liquid, cartridges, batteries, etc.) as LTL freight.
