How to Store and Preserve Your Cannabis Effectively

We’ve all thought about it, are we properly storing our cannabis? The golden rule is to always store cannabis in a cool, dark, and dry place. However, how dry, dark, and cool is the key to your flower’s success. Overly moist cannabis can also have serious health consequences, namely by encouraging the growth of mold and mildew.

Let’s take a look at the sweet spots when it comes to elements that most affect your beautiful buds—humidity, temperature, air, and light.

The Perfect Temp

Extreme heat and extreme cold can cause damage to the buds, and dry the cannabis out. Too high of a temperature will dry the bud out and destroy terpenes, making a significant difference in the effects and flavor. This habit of storing your cannabis will destroy the terpenes and cannabinoids contained in the plant.

Pro tip: The perfect temperature to store your flower is between 32° and 68° F. However, it is recommended to store your cannabis in the refrigerator or freezer in an attempt to extend its lifespan.

The Perfect Container

The container you select to store your flower in matters, glass is always best. Experts recommend avoiding metal or plastic. While plastic and metal can be used for the short term, they will start to affect the aroma and flavor after a while. The goal is to block out as much air as possible. Mason Jars are usually consumers’ first pick. While Mason Jars might look appealing, they won’t protect your flower the way an opaque container will.

Over time companies have developed special smell-proof and airtight jars. Some jars can block out the UV and don’t tamper with the flavor.
Pro tip: Avoid using large containers to store small quantities of cannabis, this leaves too much air inside the container and will affect your flower.

The Perfect Lighting

Light is the single largest contributor to the loss and deterioration of cannabinoids. Ultraviolet(UV) light degrades the potency of cannabis.

Long exposure to light and air will gradually convert THCA into THC and THC into CBN, a cannabinoid that does not create the intoxicating properties that THC delivers.
When cannabis is stored under the proper lighting, it can remain stable for up to 2 years.

Humidity Packs

Humidity packs help store your cannabis for an extended period. Humidity packs help control humidity levels, prevent mold growth and preserve the organoleptic qualities of your flower.

Consumers highly favor Boveda. Boveda makes humidity control effortless.
