Grove Bags Wins Their First “Red Dot: Design Excellence” Award

Grove Bags has won its first “Red Dot: Design Excellence award for its ingenious development of a new material, the ultra-functional TerpLoc packaging solves several of the problems traditionally associated with packaging medical-grade cannabis.

Launched in 2016, Grove Bags is the industry’s leading provider of proprietary flexible packaging for the cannabis industry. Grove Bags are a domestic company that meets the highest food, drug, & retail standards around the world as well as the pioneers of the both first & best terpene preservation & protection method: TerpLoc® Packaging.

TerpLoc® is a globally recognized cannabis packaging solution that is used in over 55 countries and every US cannabis market by premier growers who want to maintain the efficacy as well as integrity of their cannabis post-harvest during curing and storage. 

TerpLoc® is used by thousands of home growers in addition to hundreds of the industry’s top cultivators from Cultivation to Consumption, providing the key convenience of a “Burp-Free” Cure & making humidity packs a solution of the past.

JJ Yang, the CSO of Grove Bags says, “Winning our very first Red Dot award is the culmination of a true team effort to raise the standard of cannabis packaging that continually meets consumers’ expectations for quality & consistency by helping cultivators supply the freshest product possible from cultivation to consumption.”

Executive Summary Submission for the Grove Bags product recognized with the Red Dot Award: TerpLoc Glassless Jar

TerpLoc® Glassless Jars form the optimal cannabis climate focusing on directly addressing the three primary adversaries of the plant: terpene degradation, moisture loss, & microbial growth. TerpLoc®’s industrial-strength & high barrier elements provide maximum puncture resistance & odor protection, while the anti-static & UV elements create a neutral charge down the sidewall of the packaging to prevent trichomes from being stripped & degraded by harmful UV rays. The last two elements of oxygen & humidity work together to actively diffuse unwanted oxygen &  water vapors out of the packaging, to prevent mold growth & maintain optimal humidity levels of 58%-62% RH without the use of costly desiccant packs.

While Grove Bags TerpLoc® technology eliminates moisture loss, microbial growth, and terpene degradation from damaging the plant medicine; it additionally eliminates the need to manually burp product by hand in the cannabis curing process. This time & corresponding cost-saving benefit of TerpLoc® is strategically enhancing the cultivation SOPs of operations worldwide, enabling them to cultivate a higher quality product with less labor by cutting out this manually repetitive task.


Two TerpLoc® solutions that exemplify this increased efficiency are the TerpLoc® Liner SKU, which prevents cultivators from having to manually clean pull-down bins between harvests, in addition to eliminating cross-contamination risk, and the TerpLoc® Wicket SKU which eliminates the need to manually burp product by hand or use costly desiccants in the cannabis curing process.

The time & corresponding cost-saving benefits of our TerpLoc® Cultivation Suite are strategically enhancing the cultivation SOPs of plant-touching operations worldwide, enabling them to cultivate a higher quality product with less labor by cutting out manually repetitive tasks. By leveraging TerpLoc® in this way, it directly boosts an operation’s bottom line through reduced human capital costs and a finished product that commands a premium price point at retail.

About Grove Bags TerpLoc® Packaging Innovation

Creating the perfect cannabis climate starts with functional packaging solutions that have the ability to maintain low oxygen levels and actively generate humidity by leveraging the moisture from the product packaged within. Grove Bags’ TerpLoc® Cultivation Suite of packaging solutions is made from a precise blend of 6 film elements that actively target specific gas and water vapor permeability properties. 

The 6 TerpLoc® elements that come together to form the optimal cannabis climate focus on directly addressing the three primary adversaries of the plant: terpene degradation, moisture loss, & microbial growth. TerpLoc®’s industrial-strength & high barrier elements provide maximum puncture resistance & odor protection, while the anti-static & UV elements create a neutral charge down the sidewall of the packaging to prevent trichomes from being stripped & degraded by harmful UV rays. The last two elements of oxygen & humidity work together to actively diffuse unwanted oxygen and water vapors out of the packaging, to prevent mold growth & maintain optimal humidity levels. These 6 elements amalgamate to eliminate moisture loss, microbial growth, and terpene degradation from damaging the plant medicine.
