Best Ways to Preserve Your Weed
- Keep it cool.
One of the most important parts of preserving your cannabis is keeping it cool. If your marijuana is stored in a hot place it will more than likely dry out. The ideal temperature for storing weed is between 77 and 86F.
- Keep it dry.
Keeping it dry is another huge part of preserving your weed. When weed is in a humid environment, the moisture can cause mildew, mold, and other dangerous things to form. The humidity range should be between 59% and 63% RH. Any percentage higher is when mold begins to form and any number lower you’re at risk for drying out the trichomes (the sticky resin glands that are attached to it.)
- Keep it out of direct sunlight.
This one is extremely important. Sunlight has been known to be the single biggest factor of degrading cannabis. This is because UV rays are able to break down organic material (like when your grass turns brown at the end of a hot summer.)
- Keep it away from strong smells.
Marijuana is able to absorb strong smells that are around. Although this isn’t a deal breaker as far as weed goes, it definitely isn’t great when it happens. When it absorbs another smell it has an adverse effect on the original intended smell or taste. Plain and simple, to prevent this from happening, store it away from things that might rub their smell of on your weed.
- Keep it Sealed.
Too much air exposure will dry it out which will cause it to be less potent. (And we don’t want that.)
How Can You Preserve Your Weed?
This is definitely the best way to store your cannabis. These containers are made specifically for the purpose of keeping your weed in the best condition possible. They are durable, affordable, and will make sure that your marijuana experience is consistently awesome.
If you can’t afford to store all of your marijuana products in containers, there are a few other options:
- Prescription Pill Bottles
Prescription pill bottles work nicely because they are airtight and the coloring prevents damage that could be caused by UV rays.
- Mason Jars
Another popular way to store your weed is in mason jars. These jars are airtight and promote even moisture throughout your entire stash.
- Pasta Sauce Jars
Similar to mason jars, old pasta sauce jars are also a great and economic way to store your cannabis. Before you use these old jars, be sure to clean them out so that your cannabis doesn’t take on the smell of tomatoes.
