Kush Bottles, Inc. (OTC:KSHB), announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has approved a patent for "Unitary Child-Resistant Containers Configured for Attachment to Identifier Cap, and Identifier Cap" on one of its best-selling child resistant packaging products.
The patent for publication number US20160167844 was filed back in December of 2014, and covers Kush Bottles' child-resistant tube, which allows for characters and three-dimensional figures and icons to be affixed onto the container's lids. This unique feature gives the packaging product an edge over competitors, as brands, dispensaries and more can further customize their packaging in a way that stands out from the rest.
While the container may be child resistant, adding characters and 3D figures seems like a way to attract children to the container.
The abstract for the invention describes it as "a mechanism or feature incorporated into or on the lid of a one piece child-resistant container which allows customization of the container by attachment of an independent, separate ancillary piece or identifier cap to the lid. The identifier cap may snap onto or be pushed onto the lid in a secure manner."
Nicholas Kovacevich, the CEO of Kush Bottles, said "As in any consumer product sector, brand marketing is a core means for our clients in the cannabis industry to differentiate themselves from their competition."
Kovacevich went on to say that Kush Bottles' "packaging solutions are tailored to allow our clients to maintain their brand integrity, while also providing a safe and reliable product which complies with the stringent requirements of the state in which they are operating. We aim to be the gold standard for responsible, customized branding and packaging and are pleased to acquire this patent to support our rapid growth."
