South Florida company granted patent for child-resistant cannabis packaging

A Boca Raton distributor of accessories for the cannabis industry was granted a patent for child-resistant bags for cannabis products. The U.S. Patent Office approved Greenlane Holdings' (Nasdaq: GNLN) patent for its Pollen Gear SnapTech Bags, child-proof packaging that contains a snap-locking mechanism designed to comply with state laws. "We try to take common-sense, proactive approaches to the industry, so [Pollen Gear] was developing child-proof packaging long before it became a legal requirement," said Greenlane CEO Aaron LoCascio.
