Best Ways to Store Your Cannabis Stash

By Rolling Up

Proper marijuana storage helps with preserving its potency and flavor. It’s more than popping it into a small plastic bag and leaving it in a drawer. Improper storage can result in loss of flavor, potency, and even worse, mold growth. If you follow these simple steps for storing your weed, it will keep for much longer and stay much fresher for the long haul.

You need to consider these following factors before storing:

  • Light 
  • Heat
  • Humidity
  • Airflow

Light is the most responsible for degrading weed at a faster rate. That’s why it’s important to use a light proof storage container, metal tins and amber bottles work best. In addition, finding a cool, dark, and dry place also keeps it safe. Weed doesn’t do well being stored in extremely cold conditions or extremely warm conditions. It can cause mold growth and degradation at a much faster rate. It’s advisable not to store your weed in the refrigerator.

This may be controversial, but some people swear by putting weed in the freezer can cause the delicate trichomes to burst and lose potency. The best place to store it is in a closet or cabinet. 

Things to Keep in Mind

Storage case matters - We suggest using an airtight mason jar or ceramic container with seal lids are a safe bet. 

Store flowers separate from other products - It’s important to only put flowers in the container and not anything else. Keeping things such as lighters, pipes, matches, can ruin the experience.

Don’t use a tobacco humidor - Although it may seem favorable to use a humidor as a storage container. The cedar wood from the box can seep into your weed and affect the flavor profile of the weed. 

Whether you have stockpiled a stash or are looking for ways to keep it fresh, proper storage will keep your bud fresh for many months to come. If you have a tried and true storage for stashing your weed, we’d love to hear it!
