5 Cannabis Storage Methods to Keep Your Herb Fresh

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Do you know what would happen to you if you smoked aged weed?

Well, you’re not going to get poisoned, unless you used moldy weed, which you should just throw out. But you’re also not going to enjoy the experience.

For one thing, you won’t get a good high because old weed just doesn’t have the same potency as fresh cannabis. And for another thing, if you use overly dried-out weed, you risk burning your throat with hot, harsh smoke. 

That being said, there are ways to keep your stash fresher for longer. Here, we’ll talk about some cannabis storage tips that will help preserve the flavor and potency of your stash.

1. Maintain Optimal Storage Conditions

Before you buy cannabis storage containers, it’s important you understand how temperature, humidity, light, and air affect weed. 

Since mildew and other molds can grow on your stash, it’s best to keep it in a cool, dark place. Aside from low temperatures, maintaining ideal humidity conditions (between 59% and 63% relative humidity) is a must. Going above 65% will spur the growth of molds, while RH levels below 59% will dry out cannabis essential oils. 

You also want to take note of how light degrades cannabinoids and giving your nuggets just the right amount of air. Remember, you don’t want to expose your stash to too much oxygen, but you also don’t want to starve it of air and mess with the RH inside the container. 

2. Consider Glass Mason Jars or Vacuum Seal Jars

The best storage for cannabis doesn’t have to be expensive. Good Mason jars will help with humidity control, and they’re way better than using plastic, which can affect your weed’s trichomes. 

If you want a more sophisticated option though, you can buy vacuum seal jars or jars that are specifically made for storing weed.

3. Try a Good Cannabis Storage Box

One of the don’ts for storing cannabis is using a tobacco humidor. This is because these humidors often have cedarwood that can alter the taste of your weed. 

However, if you like the look of storage boxes, you can opt for a cannabis humidor.

4. Avoid Mixing Up Strains

You might think you’re saving money by using one Mason jar for all your strains, but all those flavors will mix up. What you want to do is use one jar for each strain that you have.

Also, try to keep your pipes, lighters, grinders, away from your buds. Your storage container will soak up any burnt ash or resin from these accessories. It’s best to keep things separate and organized.

5. Do Your Homework

Different cannabis products such as edibles, tinctures, and so on, have different storage guidelines. If you plan to consume them, you’ll need to research how each one should be kept, as well as their shelf-life. 

The same applies to your cannabis accessories. For example, if you have a vape pen, it’s best to store it standing upright, and of course, keep it away from light.
