The Land of Enchantment thrives on our entrepreneurial spirits. With over 160,000 small, locally owned businesses, our state was ready to adopt the new recreational cannabis industry.
As with any new business, our growing recreational cannabis dispensaries need ways to promote their brands, products, and services. It also means these new dispensaries have strict laws and regulations to follow to ensure their businesses remain open, including clear and specific product labels.
At DSI, we’ve been providing New Mexico’s small businesses with label makers for sale for many years. Our solutions enable business owners to create customized labels that provide state-regulated information for every industry, including our growing cannabis industry.
Recreational Cannabis Dispensaries Flourishing in New Mexico
In 2007, New Mexico passed legislation to legalize cannabis for medicinal use. With strict regulations surrounding the sale and consumption of medical marijuana, only a few dispensaries were available.
Fast forward to April 2022, when New Mexico legalized the sale of recreational marijuana to those 21 and older. In a matter of months, over 1,000 state cannabis licenses had been issued, with over 500 dispensaries opened across the state.
As of 2023, New Mexico has issued close to 2,000 state cannabis licenses which now encompass the following types of businesses:
- 633 Retailers
- 507 Manufacturers
- 351 Producers
- 415 Microproducers
From April 2022-April 2023, $300 million was made through recreational marijuana sales.
Labeling Requirements for Recreational Cannabis Products in New Mexico
As you might expect, New Mexico has strict and detailed requirements for labeling recreational marijuana. Along with state-mandated warning labels and logos, expect to find these types of supplementary information:
- Name of manufacturer or dispensary
- THC and CBD potency levels
- Expiration dates
- Product weight
- Dosage information
While this is an abbreviated list of cannabis labeling requirements, you can view all the regulations surrounding recreational cannabis labeling on the Casetext website.
In the past, business owners had 2 options for creating labels. You could order professionally made and designed labels from a printer, usually costing hundreds to thousands between printing and shipping. The other option was homemade labels with limited design, color, and customization capabilities.
Fortunately, today’s cannabis dispensaries and manufacturers have a better option.
DSI’s label makers for sale offer the same high-quality results as professional printing companies but give you complete creative control while also meeting state labeling requirements.
DSI’s High-Quality Label Makers for Sale Give Your Products Customized Designs
Cannabis labeling is unique because it requires nutritional information like a food product, warning labels like a medicinal product, and requirements exclusive to the cannabis industry.
Many label makers for sale don’t have the full capabilities to accomplish all the requirements for your cannabis product labeling. That’s why DSI’s Epson label maker solutions work best for New Mexico’s cannabis businesses.
