Whether you’re a first-time user or an experienced stoner, most of us know that keeping your weed fresh is vital for the best experience. To get the most out of your stash, you need to ensure it’s stored in the coolest and safest conditions possible. If you live in a hot, humid zone where air gets into everything quickly, that’s not a problem. In those cases, keeping your weed fresh will be much easier (as long as you have enough air flow). However, if you plan to keep your weed for any length of time at all, there are some must-know tips on how to safely and effectively store your weed so it stays as potent as possible for extended use. Here’s how…
Store weed in an air-tight container
Air is your weed’s worst enemy. When you store your weed in an open container, it’s exposed to oxygen, which wrecks havoc on its cannabinoids. The presence of oxygen in the air causes the herb to oxidize, which means that it loses some of its beneficial compounds. That’s why the only way to keep your weed fresh is to store it in an air-tight container. This is especially true if you’re planning to keep it for any length of time. If you keep it in an open container, it won’t be long before it smells and tastes awful. If you keep an open container in a room that’s exposed to air, it will only take a matter of days before the air inside your stash room smells bad. The only way to keep your weed fresh is to store it in an airtight container.
Keep Your Weed in the Dark
Many people like to keep their weed in a jar or container that is dark or out of the light. Most herbs, especially those that are grown indoors, begin to lose their potency within a few weeks of exposure to light. If you need to keep your bud away from the light, invest in some dark-tinted jars or containers. But if you can keep it in the dark it will last significantly longer. Dark-tinted containers also help keep the smell of weed from wafting through the air, making it smell like your other herbs. If you want your bud to stay fresh for a longer period, keep it in a dark place like the bottom of a cupboard or a closet.
Don’t store weed outside
This one might seem obvious, but don’t store your weed outside. It’s best to keep it in a cool dark, air-tight storage container in a cool dark place. While it might seem like a great idea to store your weed outside, the best places to store it are inside your house and in a cool dark basement or closet. There are a few reasons why it’s best to keep your weed inside and out of the sunlight. The first reason is that you want to keep your weed away from any artificial light sources (like the sun) because artificial light can cause your weed to lose its potency much faster than it would in a cool, dark environment. The second reason is that you don’t want your weed to be exposed to heat or extreme temperatures.
Rotate your stash regularly
Whether you keep a few ounces of weed or more than a gram, rotating your stash regularly is essential for keeping your weed fresh. Keeping the same amount of weed in your stash room for a long time is a big no-no. Not only will it become stale, but it’ll also lose a significant amount of its potency. You’ve got to keep it moving so that you don’t lose any edge.
Change Your Containers Often
Storing weed in the same container over a period of time creates a buildup of gut bacteria and smells and will leave you with an unpleasant and possibly even dangerous experience. One of the easiest ways to keep your weed fresh is to change your storage containers frequently. If you don’t change them often, you’ll end up storing the same smell and bacteria in the same container and see that they start to lose their potency. Feel free to change the containers yourself with the help of a funnel or dishwasher, or even by transferring your weed into a new jar. Be sure to wash your new jars with anti-bacterial soap or bleach to keep your herb fresh.
