Packaging and Labeling Regulation Compliance
Variable Data Labeling
California Prop 64 Packaging and Labeling Requirements:
Digital printing on the packaging is most commonly used for the “Information Labeling”
- INFORMATIONAL PANEL – any part of the label that is not the primary panel
- Manufacturer name and contact information* — Must be a name listed on the license certificate (either the legal business name or the registered DBA), and their phone number or website
- Date of manufacture/packaging*— One date may be used. Include month, day and year. (Example: MFG/PKG: 02/23/19)
- Government warning statement for cannabis products* (capital letters and bold font)
- UID number — The unique tracking number issued through Track-and-Trace
- Batch or lot number
- Instructions for use and any preparation needed*— For example, the method of consumption or application
- List of all ingredients* (in descending order by weight or volume) — Include sub-ingredients, if any
- Allergens* (if applicable) — The word “Contains,” followed by a list of any major food allergen in the product. The major food allergens are milk, egg, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, soybeans, fish or crustacean shellfish. Use the specific food name when disclosing allergens (i.e. “almonds” instead of “tree nuts”).
- Artificial food colorings* (if applicable)
- Expiration, use-by or best-by date* (if applicable)
- “KEEP REFRIGERATED” or “REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING”* (if perishable after opening)
- “FOR MEDICAL USE ONLY”* (if applicable) — Manufacturers must include these words on the label if the product contains a THC concentration that can only be sold in the medicinal market.
Edible product labels must also include:
- Sodium, sugar, carbohydrates, and total fat per serving* (in milligrams or grams)
- OTHER LABELING – may be on either the primary or informational panel
- Cannabinoid content (in milligrams) – Cannabinoid content may be added to the label by the manufacturer before testing or on the distribution premises after testing.
- THC and CBD per package (for all manufactured products)
- THC and CBD per serving (for edibles and concentrates)
