Hippo First in USA with New European Designed Packaging System

Hippo Premium Packaging (, is offering the new Duallok™ line of certified child-resistant packaging created expressly for the cannabis industry.

The uniquely designed box gives cannabis businesses the means to create a stand-out brand with distinctive, luxury-quality packaging.

Theory Wellness, a small batch cultivator and processor from Massachusetts and a client of Hippo Packaging, will be the first to market with the new packaging system.

"Duallok is the top-of-the-line folding carton, so we held off our product launch until the system completed certification and was ready to go,” said Nick Friedman, CFO, Theory Wellness. “We think this packaging will have a big impact on our sales, and we love the fact that we are the first to market.”

The package consists of a tray and sleeve that cleverly locks and provides a reliable barrier to entry by children, but is easily opened by adults. Uses include vape cartridges, disposable pens, pre-rolls, syringes, edibles, and more. Duallok packaging can be tailored to fit a wide range of products in the cannabis space.

Duallok is a patented packaging solution developed by Burgopak™, a leading packaging design agency with over 200 million units sold worldwide. Burgopak awarded Hippo Premium Packaging a premier distributorship with authority to offer the new compliant packaging solution to customers throughout the United States.

Kary Radestock, Co-Founder and CEO of Hippo Premium Packaging, said that this new packaging system will help brands stand out in the increasingly competitive legal marijuana marketplace.

“Most purchasing decisions are made at the point of sale,” she said. “Once a consumer picks up your package, they will make an immediate, sometimes subconscious decision about whether or not they will trust your brand. Accordingly, one of the greatest challenges for cannabis businesses is to package their products in a distinctive manner that generates interest and also meets child safety regulations.”

“Now we can give our clients a custom-designed Duallok packaging system that is attractive, luxurious, and affordable,” she added. “This is the perfect packaging solution for companies that want an upscale look that attracts attention on store shelves and elevates the brand’s image.”

Duallok™ meets 16 CFR 1700 guidelines for child-resistant packaging.
