The Best & Worst Ways To Store Your Weed

the best and worst ways to store your weed

Whether you want to smoke cannabis in a bong rip, a boof, or a roll-up, if you do not have the appropriate container, your cannabis will be wasted. To add insult to injury, not only are you wasting time, but you are also wasting money. If you leave your flower out in the air, in the sunlight, or in the heat, it will lose its flavor and its freshness. It is not your fault that it is difficult to find reliable information on how to safely store pot; this situation results from a lack of transparency in the cannabis industry and widespread misunderstandings and stereotypes about the drug. It is not your fault that it is difficult to find reliable information on how to safely store pot. Let’s get some of the most frequent misconceptions about cannabis storage out of the way first before we go on to the most effective methods to put it away.

Lose The Plastic Bud Baggies

Plastic is an awful material to use for storage containers. Never place a bloom in a plastic bag or container because the static charge may easily damage the succulent trichomes, which are the beautiful tiny hairs that cover the plant. Yes, that includes the plastic containers that cannot be opened by children that are often sold at dispensaries everywhere. If your things are stored for more than a few days, you will run into the same issues that we are working to eliminate. In a time of crisis, they will do their function, but otherwise, they are more suited to being used as travel packs.

Don’t Put Weed In The Fridge

Flowers should never be stored in the refrigerator or freezer for any length of time. Because of the dramatic shifts in temperature and humidity, the former and the latter will lead to brittle trichomes and more prone to breaking than the former. Keep your weed far away from the fridge or freezer.  Contrary to what you may have been taught in the dormitories, keeping your cannabis fluffy by storing it with a piece of orange peel will not achieve this goal. This step is not required as long as the container maintains its airtight seal. But if you have an edible, freezing edible is fine without drastically affecting the potency. 

Use Paper In A Pinch

Grab the cleanest thing that’s close at hand, whether it’s a paper towel, a napkin, or a piece of paper. Before wrapping your weed with paper, we recommend scrunching it up first (it will make folding an envelope shape easier). Paper won’t alter the taste of your buds like plastic or cling wrap would, but it will keep them fresh for longer. As a temporary measure, at least until you can get your hands on a more permanent solution.

Stock Up On Good Ol’ Glass

When it comes to preserving marijuana, there is not a container that is more appropriate than glass. It is easy to clean, does not accumulate static as plastic does, maintains the freshness of food without affecting the flavor (unlike metal containers), and may be firmly sealed to prevent oxidation from occurring. To make things even worse, cannabis that has been kept in clear containers rapidly loses its psychoactive effects as a result of the transformation of the psychoactive compound THC into the sedative cannabinol (CBN). You may partly avoid this from occurring by either placing your glass in a dark location or wrapping it in a towel before putting it there.

Businesses are working on finding viable alternatives to glass that are both airtight and easy to keep up with maintenance.

Use Parchment To Prevent Damage

Let’s try to limit the damage if you still consider Tupperware to be an acceptable form of long-term storage. Before you put your bud away, carefully wrap it in parchment paper, which is the same kind of material that is often used to store concentrates. After that, you may use the integrated surface to either grind up some cannabis or roll a joint.

Wrap It In Foil In The Short Term

Aluminum foil is an excellent option for preserving food that will only be opened once, such as takeout, since it is resistant to light, heat, and air. Another benefit of aluminum foil is that it can be recycled. Its quality may be preserved if it is handled carefully and then left alone for many weeks. However, excessive handling may cause the foil to clump together, making it more difficult to extract trichomes from the cannabis plant.

Use A Humidor

A cigar storage environment should typically have a humidity level of greater than 70 percent. This level of moisture is unsuitable for cannabis. You are welcome to roll the best blunts ever using the cigars that you kick into the box that’s sitting on the counter.

Spring For Humidity Packets

In addition, there is a kind of humidity pack that is created specifically for the long-term preservation of cannabis nugs. These devices are capable of maintaining a humidity level of around 62% throughout the inside of any closed container. Comparatively inexpensive to a humidor but not quite as versatile in terms of storage options. However, despite this, it is still a basic approach for maintaining the viability of a substantial amount of cannabis for a protracted length of time.
