What Makes Us Different

P3 Distributing was founded in 2016 as a partnership by father and son Don and Patrick Caldwell. Since then, we have become one of the industry’s top cannabis wholesale package suppliers. And while we started in Oregon, our products and commitment to service is something that dispensaries throughout the country now appreciate and benefit from. And because we are also consumers, we’re constantly aware of how packaging impacts the customer and the positive (or negative) difference it can make for a dispensary’s business.

So far, we’ve been right and we are proud to be an important part of one of the fastest growing industries in the country. We are long-term medical patients, growers, customers and experts in compliance under the OLCC. That’s what makes us different from other packaging companies you may meet. 

At P3 Distributing, our commitment is not to the packaging we sell, but to the products that you need to package and ship around the country. Your customers, which may include ourselves, are demanding high-quality with each and every order. That means it is as much our responsibility to help maintain those products as it is yours. 

Let’s Talk About Recycling

Our team has made a full commitment to recycling and our success has shown throughout the state of Oregon. We offer a variety of assistance in this field and can help you to improve your own recycling efforts and make it something your customers can get involved with as well. 

We believe that this industry is a community where consumers and businesses need to work together to show the rest of the world how it can be done. With great service and quality products that remain affordable and easy to access, consumers are not only committed to their favorite brands, but they are committed to helping support the industry as a whole. We believe that recycling can be one of the greatest benefits of that support and we have created several local programs that have been a great success. Now we are bringing our success in recycling, and wholesale packaging supplies, to the entire nation. 

However, we cannot do it without you and our great team!
