Cannabis Education How to Store Weed Properly – Avoid These Mistakes

Mar 30, 2023

Are you storing your weed the right way? Follow these tips to make sure your weed retains its potency and flavour.

Use an Airtight Container

We know a lot of people’s go-to storage container is a plastic baggy, but that’s a common mistake, which results in weed getting stale pretty quickly. Instead, opt for an airtight container. This will keep your cannabis fresher for longer, not to mention look a lot better on your shelf.

Don’t Store Cannabis in the Fridge or Freezer

Many people think storing their cannabis in the fridge or freezer will keep it fresher, but this is actually one of the worst things you can do for the quality of your cannabis. Storing in the fridge or freezer dries out cannabis, which results in a less potent product that lacks aroma and flavour.

Remove Leftover Weed from Your Grinder

After grinding, you might think it seems convenient to leave leftover flower in your grinder to store it. We’re here to tell you this is not a good plan. Your weed will lose its freshness quickly when left in the grinder, and you won’t get to enjoy it as much. Instead, transfer leftover ground weed into an airtight container until you are ready to consume it.

Have Separate Containers for Different Products

If you have multiple different strains of cannabis, you should be storing them in multiple containers. Mixing your cannabis products in the same container can not only result in mixing things up, but also different flower varieties can impact one another’s aroma and taste when stored together.

Keep Cannabis Out of Direct Sunlight

UV rays from the sun can damage cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes in cannabis. When this happens, the cannabis loses much of its potency, aroma, and flavour. To prevent this from happening, keep your airtight cannabis containers somewhere indoors that doesn’t get any direct sunlight.
