|Significance and Use|
4.1 This guide provides manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers with guidance on how to package and label consumer resin cannabis products, based on their intended use, in a manner that prevents contamination and promotes prevention of accidental or improper consumption. The guide recommends packaging types, terminology, nomenclature, graphics, and symbols that enable consumers to determine product type, strain, potency, concentration, dosage, and expiration date, such that informed decisions can be made.
1.1 This guide is for the packaging and labeling of cannabis flowers, resins, and preparations derived therefrom for sale to adult consumers, legally authorized medical users, and caregivers in a business-to-consumer/patient/caregiver retail environment and other legal distribution channels. This includes labeling of products, regardless of packaging format, that will be purchased by adults in retail dispensaries, pharmacies, or other distribution methods (for example, postal shipment).
1.2 This guide does not address packaging or labeling specific to non-consumer-facing transactions (for example, products packaged for transfer between business entities, including growers, processors, manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers).
1.3 This guide incorporates relevant materials previously published in other industry resources such as ASTM Committees D10 and F02, Foundation of Cannabis Unified Standards (FOCUS), American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and various sanctioned working group findings and publications (for example, Council on Responsible Cannabis Regulation (CRCR), National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), and so forth).
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
