There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to storing your cannabis, and we wanted to share some of our tips with you all. Keep reading to learn more!
Keep your cannabis in a cool, dark place
When storing cannabis, it is important to pay attention to environmental conditions. Heat and/or direct sunlight can damage the trichomes and terpenes of a plant, making it less effective. Warm temperatures that don’t go away can also lead to moisture problems like mold and mildew, which can make it unpleasant to smoke. Therefore, it is ideal to keep your cannabis stored in a cool, dark location that does not exceed room temperature. If possible, select a location with minimal fluctuations in temperature or sunlight. It’s also a good idea to keep cannabis at a slightly lower humidity level than you would with other plants. This will help reduce the likelihood of it drying out or becoming brittle over time. If you follow these rules, your cannabis will stay fresh and potent for when you want to use it again.
Make sure the container is airtight
Oxygen is a very important part of keeping organisms healthy, and a lack of oxygen is one of the main reasons why things go bad. However, too many people don’t realize how important it is to store their things in airtight containers. Containers should be appropriately sized for whatever you are storing; if there is too much extra space inside the container, that could lead to oxygen entering and ultimately contributing to quicker spoilage. Additionally, the quality of the container and lid matter; if either contains any gaps or deficiencies, air won’t stay out. If you want maximum protection from spoilage, you should always make sure that your container is airtight! This will help keep your storage items as fresh as possible for much longer periods of time. Our advice: double-check!
Choose the right size container for the amount of cannabis you have
When it comes to storing cannabis, the first rule of thumb is to choose the right size container for the amount of cannabis you have. This ensures that your cannabis does not become stale or dry from too much oxygen exposure. A smaller container should be used for just a few grams of cannabis, while a larger storage container can be used for larger quantities. It is important to keep in mind that different types of containers may affect the quality and freshness of your product. Dark-colored containers with lids will help protect against UV light, which causes degradation and discoloration, while items made out of glass are more porous than those made out of metal and can cause the product to become moist and moldy. Additionally, mason jars are great because they provide an airtight seal when properly sealed and can even be labeled with information about strain type and storage date. By taking these factors into account, you can make sure you are using the right size container for your cannabis needs, helping ensure long-term storage effectiveness.
Don’t store your cannabis near other strong-smelling items
Storing cannabis near items with strong odors can have an impact on its flavor and aroma. Because of this, you should keep your marijuana away from things like perfumes, cleaning supplies, and spices. Doing so will help keep the flower’s quality and make sure you have the best experience possible when you use it. Also, it’s worth noting that some flavors are known to go well with certain strains. Trying out different flavor combinations through storage isolation can also lead to interesting results. If you store your cannabis properly, it will remain potent and enjoyable for many uses.
Storing your cannabis properly is crucial to maintaining its potency and freshness. By following the tips above, you can be sure that your cannabis will stay fresh and potent for as long as possible.
