PackTech unveils child-resistant packaging for cannabis beverages

US-based packaging handles designer and manufacturer, PakTech, is announcing the release of its latest packaging innovation for the CBD beverage market. PakLock, made from the same 100% recycled and 100% recyclable HDPE as PakTech’s popular multipacks, is a child resistant cap designed for CBD infused beverages.

The new packaging is designed to be a safe, secure, and simple solution to allow responsible adults to enjoy their CBD infused beverages worry-free while ensuring the safety of children. Developed by PakTech’s engineering team, PakLock is an important innovation for the growing cannabidiol beverage market. PakLock provides a cost-effective solution to child resistant packaging needs that is easy to apply, fits perfectly on all standard 202-260 aluminum can formats, and is removable by adults.

“With the cannabis extract market growing rapidly across the world, we started to receive inquiries about whether we had any child-resistant or tamper-evident packaging,” said Lloyd McGriff, director of Sales at PakTech. “That was when we realised we could leverage our experience from our PakTech can carriers and meet this new market need.” Indeed, the UK CBD market is projected to be worth £1bn by 2025 – an opportunity that the company could not ignore.

“Developing the PakLock presented unique challenges,” explained Zak Borg, vice president and Director of Engineering at PakTech. “Designs had to be modified significantly so they would perform uniformly in strict certification testing, using a wide specification resin.” But with diligent effort, PakLock was successfully created and certified. It is also sustainable. Like all of PakTech’s products, the PakLock is made from 100% recycled HDPE plastic, which means every PakLock is produced from existing recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable as well.

Designed to be secure and durable with an attractive minimalist design, the company believes its PakLock is an affordable solution to securing CBD infused beverages for retail sale.

PakLock is available for purchase today to all of PakTech’s partners. Contact your PakTech representative, or visit for more information.
