How Best To Store Your Cannabis

Abigayle Miranda
Cannabis which is also referred to as marijuana, hashish, weed or dope, is a consciousness-expanding drug used for entertainment and medical purposes. The plant is grown from seeds or cloned, and can be nurtured outside or even in-house with access to sunlight. They are fit for harvesting once half the plant turns brown and when the trichomes turn amber. To harvest, you cut either the branches only or the whole plant from the bottom. Weed does not go bad, but it is in your interest to ensure that your package is moist-free and does not dry up.

1. Avoid plastics: Plastic containers cause the buds to sweat, hence, creating moisture that your stash can absorb and make it mouldy. They can also crush the buds, which are the most significant part of the herb as they have the intoxicating trichomes. Some plastics introduce a bad odour which pollutes the taste of the weed.

2. Airtight glass containers: The readily available containers in your house like the mason jars come in handy. The mason glass jars are ideal since they have an airtight seal that regulates both the air and humidity entering the jar. This ensures that you maintain the quality and colour of marijuana inside the glass. The glass containers are also convenient for storing whatever amount of weed while in transit.

Too much air can instigate the oxidation process which leads to the production of carbon dioxide gas that eventually destroys the package. Therefore, a dark airtight glass container would be the most perfect in ensuring non-adulteration.

3. Ideal temperatures: You cannot keep your pot by the fireplace or in the freezer. Extreme temperatures of cold lead to the growth of moulds, which eventually cause rotting. The coldness also causes the trichomes to burst and lose their effectiveness. Excess heat dries up the vital parts of the plant like the terpenes that have taken a longer period to develop.

4. Humidity: By controlling humidity, you are preventing the incursion of external factors like moisture from altering the state of your cannabis. This not only preserves the taste but also the colour, flavour, aroma, and potency. You can, therefore, use humidity packs which can store the package for months in a perfect PH.

5. Away from direct sunlight: Light is another key factor that can damage your weed beyond salvage. The Ultraviolet rays reduce the strength of the marijuana which in turn directly affects the taste. Light burns the terpenes and cannabinoids which are the most crucial compounds of the pot plant. A dark place, away from direct sunlight would, therefore, be the most favourable storage space.

6. Away from the reach of children: It may seem like an easy decision for many, but it is the most indispensable of them all. We should always protect children since they are in no position to make such decisions on their own or consent. Possible places could include higher cupboards, lockable drawers, or parents’ bedrooms. Be smart and responsible while consuming your marijuana and have fun.

In a nutshell, choosing the right place to store your weed is most probably a rite of passage for many. While avoiding being caught, you have to be super ingenious with your storage techniques. If well stored and tended to, the cannabis stack can remain in good condition for up to two years.
