SAN JOSE, Calif.
As the number of medicinal cannabis users continues to climb across North America, Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: GTSO) is partnering with a Texas-based 3D printing company to engineer unique, attractive and affordable new solutions to keeping cannabis medication safely out of children’s reach.
With the help of 6th Dimension Technologies, the company is currently prototyping multiple locking mechanisms using 3D printing technology in order to create the most robust and effective method of child-safe cannabis containers to hit the rapidly growing market.
“We’re working to engineer a rigid container that can be easily opened by an adult but remains inaccessible to small children,” said GTSO CEO Wallace W. Browne. “We’re exploring a wide variety of potential production methods, including additive manufacturing, injection molding and milling. The prototypes that receive the best feedback from our focus groups will be patented.”
The latest design being tested by GTSO for possible production is the Lock Box, which features a sliding lid mechanism that requires adult strength to operate. The company is still testing sizes and materials for a possible manufacturing run. The company plans to debut its first child-safe product in early 2016 in order to capitalize on the historic growth of the medical and adult-use cannabis markets in the U.S. and Canada.
As these markets continue to grow, GTSO plans to keep developing new tools to help cannabis wholesalers, retailers and consumers safeguard the potency, consistency and safety of their products.
