Simplify the Manufacturing Process with Digital Printing on Plastic Pouches




Are you looking for ways to simplify the food supplement packaging process? If so, you may be interested in learning more about digital printing on plastic pouches. This convenient service can not only make the manufacturing process much simpler, but can provide a variety of other benefits as well. Here’s what you should know about this increasingly popular packaging process and how it can benefit your large or small food supplement company.

How the Process Works

When digital files are printed onto packaging substrates using an ink-jet or laser printer, the process is called digital printing. Digital printing isn’t very new. In fact, commercial printers, data centers and in-plant print centers have been using it for more than 25 years. However, it hasn’t been available in the flexible packaging industry until more recently. Since its introduction in 2014, it has completely changed the way designs and information are printed on plastic pouches.

When compared to offset printing, digital printing is a much simpler process. Offset printing involves transferring ink to a custom metal plate. The ink image is then transferred to a rubber blanket before finally being transferred to the printing surface (a box, label or pouch). Digital printing, on the other hand, involves printing an image directly onto the intended package. This saves time in the manufacturing process.

Benefits of Digital Printing

There are many benefits digital printing can offer. In addition to saving time in the manufacturing process, printing directly on plastic pouches can deliver the following advantages:

  • Enhance the value proposition
  • Provide environmentally friendly results
  • Improve supply chain efficiency
  • Make it easier to print in-line variable data

When you have to pre-print a large number of cartons, it increases your chances of ending up with obsolete inventory in the event of packaging changes. Digital printing enhances the value proposition by eliminating obsolete inventory, offering faster order turnaround times and reducing time-to-market. The process also completely eliminates several steps between the proofing and prototype processes.

Printing digitally onto packaging is more environmentally friendly than traditional printing. This is because the process produces “good labels” in a matter of minutes and eliminates wasted ink and other supporting processes and materials that are common with conventional printing.

Digital printing on your child proof packaging or other food supplement packaging delivers a faster transition to production than traditional printing. It also makes it easier to customize label designs and makes it possible to print low-volume SKUs.

You can print in-line variable data more easily with digital printing than conventional printing. Digital printing allows for the development of track-and-trace capability by using a unique bar code or numeric code to label each pack or label.

Save Time and Money

If you would like to reduce waste and save time and money when creating or modifying your product packaging, digital printing is the perfect solution. It’s the only type of printing that can produce variable content packaging. It also provides superior image quality and absolute color consistency every time. There is no better way to simplify manufacturing and avoid obsolete inventory in the process than with digital printing.

6 Reasons to Try Cannabis Edibles




Are you looking for a reason to try cannabis edibles? If you’re wondering if there are benefits to edibles that you can’t get with other forms of cannabis, the answer is yes. Here are some of the best reasons to try cannabis edibles.

  1. Some edibles are boosted

When you smoke cannabis flower, you’re only getting cannabis. That’s not a bad thing, but there are brands that sell edibles that have been boosted with other ingredients. For instance, you’ve probably seen capsules with added herbs to help you sleep – the same is true for edibles. 

One of the newer enhanced cannabis edibles are the Bits adaptogen-boosted edibles. These new cannabis edibles contain just 5mg of THC per Bit so you don’t overdo anything. Each flavor is packed with a unique blend of adaptogens like ashwagandha, reishi, elderflower, lemon balm, ginseng, guarana, and rose hip.

Why adaptogens? Adaptogens have been proven to have a positive impact on the central nervous system by decreasing sensitivity to stressors. In other words, adaptogens reduce stress and anxiety and contribute to an overall sense of wellbeing. When you consume cannabis edibles boosted by adaptogens, you’re going to feel more relaxed.

  1. Edibles provide precise and consistent dosing

One of the best reasons to try edibles is for precise and consistent dosing. When edibles are made, the cannabis is thoroughly and evenly mixed in, so each serving has the intended dosage when the final product is made. In addition, premium cannabis brands like Verano lab test each batch to ensure quality and consistency with all of their products, including cannabis edibles. 

When you smoke flower, you won’t always get the same amount of THC. It’s nearly impossible to know how much THC or CBD you’re getting from smoking flower. Even when you smoke the same strain in the same amount, the THC and other cannabinoids are distributed unevenly throughout each bud. 

If precise and consistent dosing is important to you, then edibles are going to be your favorite cannabis delivery method.

  1. Edibles are tasty

Edibles taste good, so why not try them? It’s just like eating a snack or a treat, but with a purpose. If you’ve avoided trying cannabis tinctures or oil because you don’t like the flavor, that’s understandable. Edibles are different because the taste of cannabis itself can be easily masked. 

Brands go out of their way to come up with recipes that taste good because they know some people don’t like the strong flavor of cannabis. Edibles like brownies, cookies, and chocolate bars usually just taste like any other cookie, brownie, or chocolate bar. Premium cannabis brands will also use quality ingredients to produce the best cannabis-infused gummies, hard candies, and baked goods.

  1. Edibles are easy to carry

If you want to carry your cannabis around discreetly, that’s easiest with edibles. They usually come in smaller packages that you can fit into a pocket or bag, and edibles are easy to eat without anyone suspecting you’re consuming cannabis.

When carrying edibles, be smart about where you bring them. Make sure you know where you can and can’t have them. If you’re headed to the airport of a government building, for example, you’ll want to leave your edibles at home. 

  1. The effects of edibles last for a long time

Smoking flower is great when you need relief quickly, but when you want the effects to last a long time, edibles are your best option. When you ingest cannabis, it takes longer for the effects to kick in, but those effects will last for a much longer time. You also don’t need to consume as much cannabis to get these long-lasting effects.

Everyone is different, and the timing depends on a multitude of factors like our metabolism and whether you’ve eaten or have an empty stomach. However, in general, it takes between 30 minutes and 4 hours to start feeling the effects of edibles. From there, the effects can last a few hours or even up to twelve hours. This is why many people take edibles before going to bed – getting that full impact while they sleep makes them wake up feeling incredibly rested.

  1. Edibles are a great alternative to smoking

Although smoking cannabis is probably the most popular consumption method, it’s not for everyone. Edibles won’t expose you to the potentially harmful effects of smoking. If you’ve been avoiding trying cannabis because you thought you had to smoke it, edibles are the perfect opportunity for you to try cannabis. 

Already familiar with edibles? Try something new

If you’ve been consuming cannabis edibles for a while, maybe it’s time to try something new. If you’ve always been into baked goods, branch out and try some beverages, chocolate bars, or even an adaptogen-boosted cannabis gummy for example. There are plenty of edibles to choose from so you can be sure you’ll find something new that you can enjoy.
