Cannabis Labels & Medical Marijuana Labels
The cannabis and medical marijuana industry is big business, and it’s getting bigger all the time. As of 2018, 29 states have legalized marijuana for medical and/or recreational use, including Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Nevada and Hawaii. As with any fast-growing industry, your products need high quality tamper evident seals and labels that not only deliver the information customers need, but also offer an eye-catching look to help them stand out from the competition.
Labels West are the trusted experts in custom tamper label and seal printing. Our experience, expertise, and printing capabilities will help your cannabis labels and medical marijuana labels make an impact on crowded shelves. Whether you’re a grower, a processor, or a producer of infused products, we can deliver the custom cannabis labels you need.
We can provide dispensary labels and medical cannabis labels in a range of styles, and we’ll work with you to ensure that all your specific application requirements are met, including ensuring that your labels are compatible with your thermal transfer printer.
We can support short to medium runs, and can accommodate large production runs with quantities in the tens of thousands. No matter how many you need, your custom cannabis labels will be delivered in time to meet your schedule and at competitive prices that fit your budget.
Unique Label Materials, Custom Treatments & More
In our industry, wine and spirit labels are some of the most—if not the most—intricate and high quality labels produced. We use the same premium quality materials and embellishment techniques that go into our custom wine labels to produce custom cannabis labels that deliver maximum impact.
To meet your unique requirements, we can print your tamper evident cannabis labels and seals on a variety of exotic materials, including:
- Metallic foils (gold, silver)
- Soft-touch finish
- 70# uncoated felt papers
- Films (clear, white, metallic)
- Holographic foils & papers
- PCW (recycled) options
- Various Estate papers
- and more
We can also provide a range of surface treatments to add visual “pop” to your custom cannabis labels. We can foil stamp using multiple foil colors on a single label, create sculpted embossing to bring out fine details, and more. Specialty textures, finishes, and varnishes are also available to bring your label artwork to life.

The Right Printing Option for Your Recreational & Medical Cannabis Labels
Labels West uses digital offset printing and HD-Flexo printing to create custom labels with bold, bright colors and crisp, clear graphics. Our digital printing process is ideal for short to medium sized runs, while HD-Flexo printing is more common for larger print runs.
However, both printing options offer unique benefits that may make them better suited to your custom label printing needs, regardless of quantity. We will work with you to determine which printing process is right for your project.
Other Label Constructions & Applications
Thanks to our advanced label printing capabilities, we can provide a variety of specialized label configurations, as needed. These include:
- Compatibility with your thermal transfer printer
- Tamper-evident labels and seals
- Multi-ply hinged labels for expanded content
- Variable data for batch numbering
- Custom die cuts
- and more

Cannabis Labeling Requirements
Because the cannabis industry is not governed by national legislation, states are free to set their own rules and guidelines in relation to the required warnings that must be displayed on cannabis labels. These rules can change frequently, and may be interpreted and enforced differently from state to state or even city to city.
While there are no nationwide mandates for warning labels on cannabis products, there are some common or similar elements that most states require. Labels West will work with you to ensure that all the necessary information is presented as it should be and fits neatly on your product’s label.
The list below is by no means comprehensive, but will give you a good idea as to what to expect. Be sure to check your state’s requirements to make sure your cannabis labels and medical marijuana labels are in compliance.
