Designed for Compliance. Engineered for Safety.
Nancy Warner started AssurPack® to bring pharmaceutical-grade packaging to the cannabis industry. Since 2014, she and her team have worked with hundreds of clients to build their brands while keeping their customers safe.
AssurPack believes that safety and sustainability are the keys to the cannabis industry’s long-term success — and that leading-edge technologies from the pharmaceutical industry can best achieve those ends. The AssurPack team combines 100+ years of pharmaceutical packaging experience to help clients navigate the complexities of regulations without compliance violations or undue environmental impact.
When you choose AssurPack for your cannabis packaging needs, you gain a partner in success. AssurPack assesses your product to understand your product-protection needs and state regulations. Then, package engineers select custom- or ready-to-go solutions that fit your objectives. Finally, AssurPack works with you to achieve your branding and sustainability goals.
AssurPack engineers strive to create a better tomorrow by using the packaging technologies of today. We use recycled and sustainably sourced materials whenever possible — and increasingly utilize plant-based plastics. Yet, unlike other manufacturers, AssurPack protects more than the environment. We protect your brand. Our designers will never use unsuitable materials that compromise product quality.
