There are many bags being marketed to Medical Dispensaries as “odor proof”. Most of these bags are made from a thin Polyethylene (PE) material. They are popular because they are cheap. Unfortunately, Polyethylene alone does not provide an effective air or moisture barrier. As a result, oxygen (and consequently the smell) and moisture escapes through the package, depleting the freshness, potency and water weight of the product inside.
A true odor proof bag, also referred to as a flat pack pouch, is made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE). The material is a tough, clear polymer that has exceptional moisture and gas barrier properties. PET is often used for food storage bags and will not transfer hazardous chemicals into the bag’s contents.
