Wondering about the best ways to store your weed? This is your guide to keeping your cannabis products safe and fresh, which means as colourful, flavourful, and potent as the day you bought them.
Read on to learn more about:
- Optimal storage conditions for weed
- Ideal weed containers and materials
- Safety and security considerations
The three main factors that you need to control for are light, temperature, and humidity.
When it comes to light, the rule is simple: avoid.
A dark environment or container is perfect for your precious buds. But if you like to admire your weed, want to easily see how much you have left, or just feel good about it, go ahead, go transparent; just keep your container out of direct, strong light, as UV can degrade the plant and ruin the colour.
Temperature is only slightly more complicated: not too hot, not too cold.
To keep weed from drying out, try to keep it under 20°C, away from heat sources like stoves and heaters.
On the other end of the scale, freezing weed can damage the delicate trichomes that give it flavour and aroma, so don’t do it! You should also avoid storing dried flower in the fridge to prevent mould caused by condensation.
Proper humidity management keeps you in the safe zone between dry, brittle weed and mold-inducing moisture. 55-65% is your safe range. Humidity packs, specific containers like humidors and other solutions can help you on this front, but first and foremost, keep your weed sealed.
