Edibles are one of the most popular kinds of cannabis to purchase. They’re a tried-and-true method for consuming marijuana, and they’re just as pleasurable as they are effective!

We’ve all had that awful feeling of having purchased a stash of our favorite marijuana edibles from the dispensary, only to have them go bad before we could use them. Worse still, you spent all day in the kitchen making your homemade edibles and they went stale as well.

This is a common occurrence with all foods, not just edibles. When edibles go bad, though, they have a distinct flavor profile.

At Louisiana Medical Marijuana Doctors, we aim to provide you with all of the resources you need to take charge of your health and wellbeing, including keeping your edibles safe and secure so they are preserved for a long time.

Today, in this blog, we’ll go through how to keep edibles safe and secure, as well as how long edibles stay potent and where you can get them in Louisiana.

How to Keep Edibles Candy Safe

Although cannabis-infused sweets are preferred over the other forms, because they have sugar in them, they are not as long-lasting. These edibles may last a while but can lose their appeal if exposed to air and temperature fluctuations.

Edible candy or suckers, for example, are susceptible to water, which causes them to soften and adhere together. Keeping edibles like these in an airtight container in a cool location in your pantry is the greatest course of action. If they aren’t already wrapped, anything that’s soft should be individually packaged to avoid sticking together.

Soft candies such as marshmallows and gummy bears will keep for 6 to 9 months, while harder sweets like musk balls and gumdrops will last up to a year.

Remember that even if you have any sort of edibles, they should always be secured and labeled so that no one gets to them who shouldn’t!

Chocolate Edibles: How to Keep Them Fresh

Chocolate edibles are just as sensitive to temperature as candy edibles, but they are also susceptible to humidity. Wrap chocolate edibles in tin foil and store them in a cool, dark place to keep the longest. Of course, secure and identify these items as well.

Edibles containing dark chocolate, such as truffles, can last up to a year. Milk and white chocolate edibles, on the other hand, have a storage life of approximately eight to ten months.

Another method to preserve chocolate edibles is to keep them in the freezer! This will add another two months to the shelf life. 

How Long Do Edibles Make at Home Last?

Many people are creating marijuana edibles at home with cannabis oils that may be purchased at dispensaries. People make their edibles even more because marijuana flowers are available in 2022!

When it comes to baked goods, the air isn’t your buddy. So keep in mind that storing your edibles in an airtight container is the easiest method to begin.

The importance of labeling home-canned edibles cannot be overstated. You may keep track of when you cooked them and estimate a bit better how long they will last.

Freezing baked goods like cookies, bread, and cakes is one of the most effective methods to preserve them. Muffins can last up to two months in the freezer, while cakes, brownies, and bread products can all stay frozen for three months!
