Medication packaging has improved significantly over the years. Today, medicines come in more sophisticated and child-proof closures than before. These closures not only protect medicines from exposure to air but from being ingested by children. As a result, they remain effective for long periods of time and don’t cause harm to children. For example, child resistant dropper bottles are a great way of keeping medicines away from children. Through these mechanisms, it has been possible to decrease the number of young children dying from toxic substance ingestion. However, thousands of children are still treated for poisonings. While the numbers are declining, much more needs to be done to protect children.
Tens of thousands of children getting poisoned accidentally means not only trauma for them and their families but also great costs to the emergency health systems of a nation. In order to avoid this, only a few precautions are needed. After all, keeping medicines or drugs out of the reach of small children shouldn’t be that hard.
You can’t keep hiding all your medicines in the kitchen or bathroom cabinets, can you? Instead, there should be a simpler way of keeping medicines or drugs permanently off the hands of children.
This is why we’ve created our 1-Step TE and CR closures. The 1-Step TE and CR closures help not only children but also licensed producers. The 1-step application helps seal medicine bottles and liquid dropper bottles more efficiently.
What is TE and CR Closures Packaging?
A TE or Tamper Evident Closure is a technical term used to classify lids for plastic and glass bottles. These are also sometimes called Tamper Indicating Closures. They are used in the packaging of medicines, tablets, and liquids in bottles by pharmaceutical industries. The closures are positioned mechanically and the seal has to be broken to open them, which makes them difficult to open. Hence, they’re called tamper-evident closures.
If you want to keep medicines out of reach of children, TE or tamper-evident closures are a perfect option. They are especially helpful for storing and keeping cannabis oil away from children. They also make it easier for parents to detect if their child has ingested or otherwise used cannabis oil. Parents can then take further preventive measures to ensure that their child is safe from this. If a child has ingested or used too much cannabis oil, they should be taken to a nearby hospital immediately.
CR or Child-Resistant Closures is a technical term for packaging. They are used for packing drugs and cosmetics, thereby keeping children safe. Due to the implementation of these preventive closures, the number of children dying from toxic substance ingestion has declined. CR closures typically cover medicines and drugs that children are too young to ingest. They are made to make sure that children under 5 years of age can’t get to the medication. This is especially useful for certain cannabis and cannabis-based products.
How Do Our 1-Step Closures Improve Efficiency for Licensed Producers?
One of the biggest reasons for medication errors and incorrect use is the packaging. This is why labeling and packaging are so important for medication delivery. Hence, our 1-step closures can help tremendously in this regard. Not only can they prevent the premature expiration of medicines arising from exposure to air, heat and light but also ingestion by children.
Licensed producers can make use of these packaging closures to speed up their packaging processes. Adding these to a packaging process will help reduce a few milliseconds in the packaging of each bottle. Hence, it may lead to the reduction of several dozen seconds off each day and several hundred seconds off each week. That can accumulate throughout the entire year and save the LPs a lot of time and money.
These tamper-evident, child-resistant closures aren’t just designed for efficiency. They’re also designed with the dosage in mind. We also provide dropper bottles that significantly help with determining the correct dosage for cannabis oil. This is a substance that requires extreme care in handling. Its dosage has to be carefully given out for adults. Depending on a person’s body weight, body chemistry and physical age, there are a lot of variations taken into consideration. Hence, the bottle dropper is designed for specific dosing that reduces the likelihood of overdose.
Is CBD Oil Safe for Kids?
Cannabis oil is being touted as a great remedy for anxiety, stress and chronic pain. However, it is generally considered to be wise to keep it away from children. Research says that persons with small body weight and those with developing brains should stay away from cannabis altogether. With general medication kept away from children for their own safety, it’s important to keep cannabis away at all costs.
Cannabis can affect children in the early stages of mental development. Since it has been known to cause memory loss, it can affect the memory centers of the brain. In fact, research shows that unless fully developed, even adults younger than 25 shouldn’t take cannabis in any form. This is because it can affect their mental development.
Cannabis oil can also cause side effects like drowsiness and dry mouth, even in grown adults. Hence, it’s advisable to keep it away from children completely. This is why cannabis or cannabis-related products need to be packaged properly. They should be packaged in child-resistant tablet bottles so that they are out of children’s reach at all costs.
It is important to accept the fact that most children are curious by nature. How long can you keep your medicines out of their reach or locked away? Keeping them sealed in good quality bottles that are child-proof is the right option.
Using our children-resistant, tamper-evident closures, licensed producers can improve their packaging process. They can do their part in keeping children safe from cannabis oil. Moreover, they can pack their cannabis oil-based products more efficiently. Saving time, money, and lives is a great combination that our closures can provide for all at once.
