Hemp Cone Custom Packaging
Cannabis is often sold in prepared hemps that are easy to smoke and function basically like a cigarette. However, these cannot be packaged like traditional cigarettes because of the softness of hemp paper and the whole thing being much damage prone. One of the best ways to package prepared hemps is to use hard materials Custom Boxes that protect the delicate cannabis products against any kinds of mishandling and rough usage that is always expected to happen.
Custom box inserts with thin and long die cut holders can work great to keep inserted hemps away from each other and also safely in their places.
