Cannabinoids are gaining popularity every day. Whether we talk about CBD or other new cannabinoids, people and industries are curious to learn more about the benefits of using cannabis-derived substances in various areas, from health to beauty and recreational.

While almost anyone knows what cannabis is, the term “cannabinoids” isn’t so commonly used. Let's see how these two are different.

Cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant. Still, there are more than 100 such substances that cannabis is producing, among which are cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THC-V), or Delta 8.

In this article, we’ll discuss the forms in which these substances are marketed, the difference between them, and the importance of quality cannabinoid substances packaging.

The Difference Between Oil, Serum, And Tinctures And Why Packaging Matters

It’s hard to make a distinction between oil, serum, and tinctures, mostly because they come in similar packages. Another reason is that all 3 liquids usually come in dropper bottles, and their therapeutic properties can be quite similar.      

What Are Cannabinoid Oils, Cannabinoid Tinctures, And Cannabinoid Serums?


A cannabis-based oil is a blend of the extracted compounds and inert carrier oil. Some of the most popular cannabis-based oils are CBD and THC. What sets them apart is the fact that CBD is mostly utilized for stress reduction, while THC is famous for a cerebral high.

But let’s see exactly what are the benefits of both types of cannabis-based oils:

Cannabinoid Substances Packaging

High-quality cannabinoid tincture and serum boxes are essential regardless of what product you put on the shelf or deliver to the customer’s door.

The first thing you want from your packaging is to help your product stand out on the shelf. But that’s not the most important benefit. The most important benefit is that the package showcases the value it brings to the consumer.

While providing value for your clients is important, keep in mind that your packaging has to follow some other rules. One of them is FDA compliance. U.S. Food and Drug Administration is obliged to regulate every product containing cannabis or cannabis-derived products. This means the packaging must also adhere to FDA’s packaging and labeling guidelines.

Now, if you market any cannabis derivatives, your product needs to have no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight, according to the 2018 United States Farm Bill. The concentration has to appear on your product’s label, together with:

  • Product information. This defines the purpose of your product - what it is and what it does. Does it serve as a dietary supplement, a tincture, or an oil?
  • The net quantity of the content. This will let the consumer know how much of your product is in the bottle.
  • Ingredient statements. This aims to inform your consumers about product composition and needs to be listed on the outer packaging.
  • Responsibility statement. The label should include the number and address of the manufacturer as well as information about product testing.
  • Production and expiration dates.

Besides the rules your cannabinoid substances packaging must follow, here are other benefits that it gives to your product and your customers:

  • Offers excellent protection;
  • Gives it visual appeal;
  • Informs the customers about the product;
  • Is highly customizable;
  • Keeps the content and the consumer safe;
  • Ensures the customer that your product is in accordance with state laws and regulations.

Whether you’re selling your tinctures online or in stores, the packaging is an important part of how your customers will perceive your brand. Starting with the shape of the box to the color of the label, each detail will catch the eye of your potential client, if designed the right way.

While you can choose between the box styles we recommended above, you can make your tincture boxes more unique with custom cutouts, inserts, or inside printing. Let’s take a look at what these mean for your product.

Custom Cutouts

A custom cutout box allows the displaying of what’s inside it - in your case, the tincture. Based on your vision, we can cut any panel of the box to give customers a chance to see the actual product. We can design this type of box for any liquid container - oil bottles, serums, or tinctures.      


If you want more protection for your THC tinctures, box inserts will provide it. Custom-made inserts prevent the bottles from moving inside the box and risk damaging the product.  Also, they’re a way to show your customers that you really care about your product and that it deserves the best packaging.      

Inside Printing

If you want to make your product even more unique, printing the inside of the box is a great way to do it. Choose a pattern that best represents your oil, tincture, or serum, and let us know what you have in mind for your boxes.      


As a brand, you want to offer your customers the best product possible - whether it’s cannabis oils, tinctures, or serums. And the way your bottles are packaged help you do that because packaging is the first thing people notice.

At YourBoxSolution, we want what’s best for your business too. That’s why we only use high quality and sustainable materials. We’ll print your cannabinoid tincture and serum boxes in a way that tells the story of your brand, keeps your bottles protected, and makes your product unique.
