In 2017, while training for her first marathon, Lauren Kemp was struggling with daily muscle pain and soreness. She tried various remedies to soothe her pain. But the one that became her saving grace was a friend’s homemade cannabidiol (CBD) body balm. One year later, Cozy Cactus Goods was created.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. It’s growing in popularity thanks to its many health benefits like decreasing muscle pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression and more. If you’re wondering if it gets you high, the answer is “no.”
You’ll only get high on life when your mental and physical health improves.
CBD + FCB (folding carton box) packaging = Feel Good Vibes
Lauren and her husband, Brian, started researching to find the combination of CBD, essential oils, and all-natural ingredients to begin the balm creation process. They were then able to focus on a modern fresh design to accompany their natural product line.
“The whole process was new to us. We’ve worked in software and digital design, but physical products are very different and it took some adjusting learning how to design, create, and bring our products to life. I wish we had known how long the design, prototyping, and iteration process would take. It always takes longer than you think.”
Custom folding cartons are as elegant as they are eye-catching, and Cozy Cactus Goods’ knew that they wanted a stylish design for their CBD body balms. By working with Packlane, they were able to create multiple unique folding carton box designs to give each balm’s dimensions a snug fit. And along the way, they learned a few valuable tips.
“Test your idea. Create small amounts and ship it. It’s tempting to order packaging, containers, and products in bulk because the pricing is so much better, but you’ll never really know how you feel about the end product until you hold it in your hand.”
While folding cartons usually can be found on retail shelves, there’s still plenty of businesses shipping cartons to consumers. But because folding cartons are made of lightweight 16pt SBS paperboard, you may want to consider pairing them with our custom mailer boxes or use a shipping box if you’re sending multiple items in the mail.
