Cannabis Class: 15 ways to Store Weed Properly

  With legalization becoming more of a reality in some states, marijuana grows larger. This means your bud is fresher than ever when you get it from dispensaries or dealers.

How do I Store Weed Properly?

   Some people even grow their plants at home. When the supply increases, there is also greater mishandling, reducing the potency and overall quality.

            It’s essential to understand the proper way your weed should be stored so that it can last longer and maintain its potency. Here are a few tips for keeping marijuana appropriately stored:

1.  In an Airtight Container

   Airtight containers are often made of glass, ceramic, or high-quality plastic, which preserves the texture and taste of your stash.

2.     Store Weed in a Dark Place

   You’d be surprised how much light affects the quality of marijuana, so keep it in areas that are enclosed and away from windows. Sunlight makes buds go stale faster, while too much exposure to artificial light causes them to become dry and crumbly.

3.     Away From Humidity

   Cannabis is very sensitive to humidity, so it’s best not to store your stash in places with high moisture levels, like the bathroom. Humid conditions speed up the decaying process and affect the quality of weed that you’ll eventually smoke. You can place your buds in zip-lock bags before storing them.

4.  Keep in an Airtight Container

   Airtight containers are often made of glass, ceramic, or high-quality plastic, which preserves the texture and taste of your stash.

5.     Keep cool

   When cannabis is exposed to heat for too long, it loses its moisture content and makes it brittle. To keep your bud fresh, store it in a fridge away from any hot items such as light bulbs or the oven. You can also freeze your weed if you want to prolong its shelf life even more.

6.  Keep out of reach of children and pets

   When cannabis is exposed to heat for too long, it loses its moisture content and makes it brittle. To keep your bud fresh, store it in a fridge away from any hot items such as light bulbs or the oven. You can also freeze your weed if you want to prolong its shelf life even more.

7.     Always use airtight containers

   Airtight containers are often made of glass, ceramic, or high-quality plastic, which preserves the texture and taste of your stash.

8.  Don’t grind it up if you want to store it for longer

   Grinding your weed reduces its shelf life by releasing moisture, making it more susceptible to mold, mildew, and other impurities due to moisture exposure. If you still want to grind it, always store the half-eaten buds in an airtight container.

9.  Store your weed away from other herbs

   Cannabis is very sensitive to humidity, so it’s best not to keep your stash in places with high moisture levels, like the bathroom. Humid conditions speed up the decaying process and affect the quality of weed that you’ll eventually smoke.

10.  Store it in a plastic baggie or airtight container

   Airtight containers are often made of glass, ceramic, or high-quality plastic, which preserves the texture and taste of your stash.

11.  Pack it loosely if you want to store it for longer

   Grinding your weed reduces its shelf life by releasing moisture, making it more susceptible to mold, mildew, and other impurities due to moisture exposure. If you still want to grind it, always store the half-eaten buds in an airtight container.

12.  Storing weed with stems intact preserves its potency

   Cannabis is very sensitive to humidity, so it’s best not to keep your stash in places with high moisture levels, like the bathroom. Humid conditions speed up the decaying process and affect the quality of weed that you’ll eventually smoke. You can place your buds in zip-lock bags before storing them.

13.  Keep it away from the oven

   When cannabis is exposed to heat for too long, it loses its moisture content and makes it brittle. To keep your bud fresh, store it in a fridge away from any hot items such as light bulbs or the oven. You can also freeze your weed if you want to prolong its shelf life even more.

15.  Store weed in a glass jar with a humidity pack

   Airtight containers are often made of glass, ceramic, or high-quality plastic, which preserves the texture and taste of your stash. You can also store it in a plant mister to keep humidity at bay.

DID YOU KNOW?

It is a common misconception that you can leave your weed in its original packaging and store it anywhere. The truth is that the effects of depriving your flower of oxygen, light, and heat can do some severe damage to its smell, taste, strength, and overall quality.

When you buy marijuana from The Stone Dispensary, it comes delivered in a sealed container. The good news is that this container should be kept for future use! The container contains all three components that degrade weed: air, heat, and light.

Oxygen: To slow down oxidation (which causes browning), keep your bud tightly packed together while allowing airflow inside the jar. The less air at the top of the jar, the better. The Stone Cannabis Dispensary will provide ribbon-tied, airtight containers made of either glass or Mylar and Tyvek (a waterproof paper product).

Heat: The best way to keep your weed away from heat is to store it in a cool place with slight temperature fluctuations. The average inside freezer has an optimum storage range of 0°F to 10°F. You can keep your wax, rosin, or shatter inside deep freeze for optimal long-term storage. The fridge is not as good as the freezer because fluctuations caused by opening and closing the door cause humidity changes, leading to mildew and mold growth within your jar. The Stone dispensary recommends that you store your weed in the fridge and use The Stone Cannabis Dispensary’s glass jars with Mylar and Tyvek lids.

Light: The best way to keep light out is to make sure your container is opaque and tightly closed. The Stone Cannabis Dispensary offers a wide array of colors and prints, as well as classic black. The tinted Mylar-lined lids ensure that no sunlight can reach the product inside!
