How to Open a Pre-Roll Tube

Ever stared at a pre-roll tube wondering how to open it? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! These tubes often come with child-resistant features that can be a bit puzzling at first glance. But fear not! This guide will walk you through the two main types of pre-roll tubes and show you exactly how to conquer those tricky closures.

 

How to Open a Pre-Roll Tube

There are two main types of pre-roll tubes, each with a different opening mechanism.

Pop-Top Tubes

Pop-Top Tubes (Squeeze Sides), also known as child resistant conical pop top tubes or squeeze top containers, are plastic tubes with a hinged lid that pops open when you squeeze the sides of the tube . They are popular for a variety of purposes, but most commonly in the cannabis industry for storing cannabis flowers.

Key features of Pop-Top Tube

Child-resistant: The squeezing mechanism makes it difficult for young children to open, which is an important safety feature.

Air-tight and odor-proof: This helps to keep contents fresh and discreet.

Lightweight and portable: They are a convenient size for carrying around.

Reusable: They can be used over and over again.

Available in a variety of sizes: You can find them in sizes to fit a variety of items.

Can be made from recyclable or biodegradable materials: This is a more sustainable option.

How to Open

  • Locate the squeezable sides near the top of the tube. These may be indented or have a designated grip area.
  • Pinch the sides with your thumb and forefinger.
  • Apply squeezing pressure until you hear a popping sound as the lid opens.

Push and Turn Tubes

Push and Turn Tubes, also sometimes called simply “Push Tabs” or “Twist Tops,” are another type of container with a unique opening mechanism. Unlike Pop-Top Tubes that open with a squeeze, Push and Turn Tubes require a dual action for opening. You need to push down on the lid while simultaneously turning it. This twist-and-push mechanism creates a secure closure.

Key Features of Push-and-turn Tubes

Child-resistant: The push-and-turn action can be challenging for young children to open.

Airtight and Odor-proof: The secure closure helps keep contents fresh and discreet.

Lightweight and Portable: They offer a convenient size for carrying around.

How to Open

  • Locate the push-down lid on the top of the tube.
  • Push down on the lid with your thumb.
  • While applying pressure, turn the lid to open the tube.

Important Tips

  • Use gentle pressure: Don’t squeeze too hard, or you might damage the pre-roll inside.
  • Unsure about the mechanism? Check the packaging or brand website for specific instructions.
  • Child-resistant variations: Some tubes may require additional steps or a specific technique.

Final Words

Now you’re a pro at opening pre-roll tubes! Remember, a gentle squeeze or push is all you need, and if you’re ever unsure,  don’t hesitate to check the packaging or brand website for specific instructions. With this newfound knowledge, you can easily access your pre-rolls and enjoy them responsibly.
