Zenlock's Child-Resistant system is the first of its kind. Made from rigid paper boxes, the packaging is designed to keep cannabis products safe from accidental consumption. While the cannabis industry emerges across North America, state-sanctioned regulations require companies to include child-resistant packaging, like in California. Other regulations include recycled and recyclable materials.
In response to the new demands, Zenlock created a design that is environmentally conscious, child-resistant, and simple to operate. Zenlock found that many other child-resistant formats were physically challenging and virtually inaccessible to all users. This is why, after multiple prototypes, the company came up with a 2-part opening sequence using post-consumer recycled paper. The Zenlock box mechanics are intuitive for adults yet impenetrable to young people by balancing graphics and mechanics.
