Barcodes for CBD (Cannabidiol) Products

Simply Barcodes understands the unique challenges facing those needing to purchase barcodes for CBD products. With so many options available, where do you go, and who is legitimate? Customers often share with us that barcoding for CBD seems so complicated. Many don’t understand why they need two different types of barcodes. Others do not understand the special State guidelines on what to encode. We are here to make the process simple, fast, and affordable.

UPC Barcodes QR Barcodes

UPC Codes are Barcodes required for the Retail (Point-of-Sale) Identification of CBD Products. The codes are scanned at pharmacies, cash registers, dispensaries, and other end-user locations.

CBD QR Barcodes are the barcodes required under some State laws for the presentation of the contents of your CBD product.

These codes present information for your product including but not necessarily limited to:
  • Independent Lab Analysis (Certificate of Analysis),
  • Batch number,
  • Expiration date,
  • Ingredients

What is a UPC barcode for CBD and how does it work?

  The UPC code is the standard barcode used to uniquely identify products sold in stores in the United States and Canada. The UPC barcode is scanned by the end-user, primarily at retail (point-of-sale), at the cash register, pharmacy, dispensary, etc.

Exporters: If your CBD products are exported outside of the USA or Canada, you will need to order an EAN Code instead of a UPC.

What is a CBD QR Code and how does it work?

  The CBD QR barcode is a means of easily fulfilling the content identification requirement imposed by some States in a very small space. This two-dimensional barcode links to State-mandated information about your product, such as Batch number, Expiration date, Ingredients, a Certificate of Analysis by an independent lab, etc... (Always check the State requirements of the States in which you plan to retail your CBD products for the latest requirements!)

By scanning this code, customers (and anyone in your distribution or regulatory chain) can immediately trace critical information about your product.

What do I get when I order my UPC Codes and/or CBD QR Codes?

1stUpon completion of your order, you will receive an email confirmation of your UPC and QR barcode graphic purchase.
2ndThe barcode images are generated using the data you have provided.
3rdYour CBD barcode graphics are sent to you as an email attachment.

In what format are my CBD barcode images created?

  The UPC Codes are pre-packaged as a set of 4 formats: vector-EPS, transparent PNG, TIFF, and JPEG; so that your graphic artist, printing company, or manufacturing facility can work with the graphic in their preferred software.

For the customized CBD QR barcode graphics, you simply purchase one or more from these different formats:
EPS Format - This layered, vector EPS file is the preferred format of most graphic designers due to its quality and versatility, particularly for resizing. EPS is an "exchange" format, not necessarily associated with one specific graphics program. An exchange format is one intended for multiple applications to be able to open.
PNG Format - This raster PNG file works well for graphic artists who need a transparent background. This format supports lossless data compression. However, this format is not suitable for significant resizing.
JPEG Format - This uncompressed, high-quality JPEG file is the most common file format. All computers can open a JPEG. However, it is not suitable for resizing.
PDF Format - The high-quality Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format used to present and exchange documents reliably. PDF files will open on nearly all systems, independent of software, hardware, or operating system.
Other Formats such as TIFF, AI, and many more are available upon request.

How do I get my CBD barcodes on my product?

  Providing the barcode image to your graphic artist and including it in the design of your packaging prior to printing is the easiest and most economical way of getting your barcode on your product.

If your product has already been produced, you will need barcode labels. If you would like to order pre-printed barcode labels, please select this option when ordering your UPC and QR Codes.

Does barcoding CBN (Cannabinol) products differ from CBD (Cannabidiol)?

  No, it does not. Barcoding a CBN (Cannabinol) product is no different from barcoding your CBD (Cannabidiol) product. CBN products need a UPC barcode for every CBN (cannabinol) presentation and variation available. Different sizes, types, formulations, etc. all require their own UPC Code on the CBN item.

Additionally, as is stipulated by each state law label regulation, your CBN items should feature the applicable QR Code leading back to State-mandated information about your CBN (Cannabinol) product, such as Batch number, Expiration date, Ingredients, a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) by an independent lab, etc...

(Always check each State labeling requirements in which you plan to retail your CBN (Cannabinol) products for the latest labeling requirements!)
