Good ideas like this one appeal to the environmental conscious stoner. Every time you go to the dispensary and buy your bud, those child resistant containers it comes in are usually thrown away, creating a ton of waste. Mason-Re has an idea, Mason-Re has created a mason jar with a child resistant lid called Re-Stash, it comes in the classic mason jar glass, with a silicone koozy, the lid is made with 30% farm waste and has a unique patent pending child resistant design.
Nicole, co-founder of Mason-Re has said the “Feedback from testers up in Oregon has been glowing about how much better our jars keep buds. This is in part because Re-stash helps keep bud away from sunlight, which is harmful to trichomes on buds. Additionally, the koozies insulate from temperature fluctuation that causes jars to sweat, allowing bad bacteria to grow or herbs to dry out.” The jars aren’t only environmentally friendly, but are practical to use if it preserves the buds longer.
One issue that this concept has is how the industry packages and distributes cannabis. More and more brands are packaging cannabis in airtight sealed bags, and labels are required to be put on packaging, so how likely is it that someone can bring in their Re-Stash jar and have it filled up? With the current regulations in place, this product maybe one to keep at home.
However Nicole with Mason-Re thinks their product will do just fine, she says “from our research, out of the 3 states where recreational sales of marijuana are legal, only Washington requires the marijuana to to be sold in a pre-packaged container. Colorado and Oregon simply require a sticker label to be put on the package. So, we hope consumers in those states would bring their Re-stash to their favorite dispensary and the bud-tenders would place a sticker on the jar.”
Since the lids use a premium, recycled material with a huge minimum order quantity, the team at Mason-Re just launched their second Kickstarter campaign to get their first batch of lids out into the wild.
