What Size Mylar Bag Do You Need?

What Size Mylar Bag Do You Need?

Layne Alfred |

It’s easy to focus on stocking the hottest devices and providing different ways to smoke, but what about keeping your customers’ actual cannabis product as fresh as possible? Mylar bags, which are smell-proof and preserve the materials inside, are often an overlooked product when ordering for your smoke shop. Not only are they airtight, but they also keep any gases and moisture out. Plus, they’re extremely durable, allowing customers to reuse them for a long time to store bud, wax and more.


These bags come in a variety of sizes, each of which serve a different purpose for your customers, whether you're a processor, or you own a smoke shop or a dispensary. Our sizes include a pre-roll size, 1 gram, 1/8 ounce, 1/4 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1 ounce, 1 pound, and an exit bag size that’s horizontal and a little larger than a 1 ounce bag. Here’s everything you need to know about stocking Mylar bag sizes in your shop.

Mylar Bag Sizes for Smoke Shops

Chances are most retail customers won’t have a use for the big 1 pound bags, but everything 1 ounce and smaller are great sizes to have in your smoke shop for purchase. Stock 10ct and 20ct packages of these mylar bag sizes for your customers to stash their bud in and keep it fresh. The 1/4 ounce and 1/2 ounce bags are popular for this reason.


Mylar bags are also perfect for toting aromatic bud since they keep all the smell locked inside. Stock packages of the pre-roll sizes (a bit larger than a lighter) and 1 gram sizes for travel options for those that just need to bring a little with them and want to stay as discreet as possible.


Smoke shops should also buy bulk packages of mylar bags to give customers as a free gift with their purchase. It doesn’t cost you as much as a lot of other “giveaway” type items, but will go a long way with your customers. Educate them on the benefits of the mylar bag, and they might even come back to buy more in their desired size after seeing how well it preserves their goods.


Mylar Bag Sizes for Dispensaries

Mylar are reusable with child-safe zippers, so not only are they great to sell, they are perfect to pack up the customers’ goods in as an exit bag. They’ll see the mylar bag as a perk of shopping with you, since they might just get their weed in a paper bag elsewhere. Exit bags are also great because you don’t have to staple it shut, making it quicker for you and easier for them.


Dispensaries should carry every size of Mylar bag. If you sell a lot of flower that is not pre-packaged, Mylar is a cost effective solution that takes up a lot less storage space than pop top vials, especially for smaller things like pre-rolls.


For growers and processors, turkey bags and 1lb bags are good for bulk storage. Again, they will keep the product fresh for longer during transport to the dispensaries, saving you money and ensuring quality every time.


Mylar bags are worth every penny whether you run a dispensary, smoke shop or are a just consumer of bud or wax. Not only are they guaranteed to preserve the material inside by keeping air, gas and moisture out, they are perfect for on-the-go smokers who want to avoid any loud aromas from escaping their bag in transit. Stock up on a variety of sizes of Mylar bags to offer customers as a gift, as an exit bag with their purchase, or just so they can stock up themselves at home.
