Storage & Stash FAQ

What types of storage are popular for storing cannabis?

When it comes to storing cannabis, glass jars are a popular choice because they are airtight, which helps to maintain the freshness and potency of the buds. They also provide visibility, which is useful for identifying different strains. Plastic containers are lightweight and portable, making them a convenient option for on-the-go storage, but they are not as airtight as glass and may not preserve freshness as well. If you want a stylish option, wooden boxes can help maintain the freshness of the buds, but they may not be as airtight as glass or plastic, so they may not be ideal for long-term storage. For long-term storage, metal tins are a good option because they are airtight and can protect buds from light and moisture. Additionally, they are durable and can withstand wear and tear. Although zip-lock bags are a convenient and inexpensive way to store cannabis, they are not the most efficient option for maintaining the buds' freshness and potency. For individuals who are always on the go, pouches made of materials such as cotton, hemp, or nylon are a better choice. These pouches are lightweight, easy to carry, and can shield the buds from moisture and light.

What are the benefits of storing cannabis correctly?

To maintain the effectiveness of cannabis, it is essential to store it properly to avoid exposure to light, heat, and moisture that can break down the cannabinoids and terpenes present in it. Improper storage can also affect the taste and aroma of cannabis, which has a complex flavour profile. If stored in a damp or humid place, cannabis can develop harmful mould or bacteria. Proper storage can prevent the growth of such unwanted substances. Oxidation caused by exposure to air can also reduce the potency of cannabis. By limiting the exposure of cannabis to air, proper storage can prevent oxidation. Proper storage can also increase the shelf life of cannabis, allowing you to enjoy it for a longer time.

What happens to cannabis if it's not stored correctly?

Cannabis buds consist of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, that can deteriorate when exposed to air, heat, and light. If not stored correctly, the strength of the buds can decrease drastically. The taste and scent of cannabis buds are intricate, and they can be altered by exposure to light, heat, and air. Poor storage can lead to a loss of flavour and aroma, making the buds less enjoyable to use. If exposed to excessive humidity or moisture, cannabis buds can develop mould and bacteria that can be harmful to human health if consumed or smoked. Cannabis can oxidise when exposed to air, leading to the breakdown of its cannabinoids and a drop in potency. Without proper storage, cannabis buds have a shorter shelf life, which means they will not last long and may need to be replaced more often.

What's the best way to store cannabis to increase its shelf-life?

It is important to store cannabis in an airtight container, such as a glass jar that can be sealed, to avoid exposure to air and moisture. The storage container should be kept in a cool and dark place, away from heat sources and direct sunlight. The recommended temperature range for storage is between 15-21°C. Humidity packs can be used to regulate the humidity levels inside the container and to prevent the growth of mold and bacteria. The ideal humidity level for storage should be maintained between 55-62%. It is not advisable to store cannabis in plastic bags or containers as they can cause static electricity which can potentially damage the trichomes, affecting the potency and flavor of the cannabis. Despite the belief that storing cannabis in a refrigerator or freezer can prolong its lifespan, it can actually harm the buds and affect their quality due to changes in moisture and temperature.

How long cannabis last if it's stored correctly?

Proper storage of cannabis in an air-tight container, cool, dark place, and with humidity control can maintain its potency, flavour, and aroma for up to two years or more. However, several factors such as the quality of the buds, storage conditions, and exposure to light, heat, and air can vary the actual shelf life of cannabis. It's important to note that cannabis will gradually lose its potency and flavour over time even when stored correctly. To have the best experience, it is recommended to consume cannabis within six months to a year.
