5 Different Ways to Store Cannabis Properly

Store Cannabis Properly

Coming home with a fresh stash of the bud is a dream for any cannabis enthusiast.  However, finding the right spot to store it can be a challenge. Not only do you want to make sure that your flower stays fresh but also safe from prying hands.  Here is everything you need to know.

Storing cannabis has come a long way from shoeboxes hidden away with other taboo items under your bed.  With marijuana now becoming legal and readily available at cannabis dispensaries, the way it is stored has changed.  This is because marijuana is no longer seen as taboo, especially in states where marijuana has been legalized. This has a lot to do with the information that people now know about marijuana.  So if you’re looking for the best way to store your cannabis that will ensure it stays fresh and safe, check out these 5 easy storage solutions.

  1.   Mason Jars


Most cannabis dispensaries will send you home with your bud in a nice container.  While some go with the standard silver bag option, others like to store them in prescription bottles.  While these methods of storage make the product easy to transfer, it isn’t always ideal for keeping your bud fresh.  Many marijuana lovers choose to keep their product fresh in mason jars. These little glass jars are perfect for storing cannabis because they are airtight and also protect your flower from contamination.

Best of all, glass jars are reusable and dishwasher safe.  Simply take your bud and place in a clean and dry jar and store it away from sunlight.  For extra measure, make a label for your bud. Using easy to peel stickers, write down the strain information including the name, and THC percentages.  Don’t forget to write the date purchased as well. This way you can easily access the bud you need without any confusion.

  1.   Sealed Bags

If you like to squirrel away your marijuana, this option will work best for you.  Vacuum sealed bag systems can do much more than keep your meat and veggies fresh. This is a great way to help extend the shelf life of your favorite cannabis strain.  This is a perfect option for people who like to stock up on their favorite strain when it is in season. All strains, like flowers, go through seasonal changes. Fan favorites like Clementine and Grapefruit are only available in the summer season.  This leaves many cannabis supporters craving sweet citrus bud in the winter time.

With a vacuum sealing system, you can enjoy your favorite summer strains in the winter as well.  Simply store the fresh bud in a BPA free bag and use any vacuum sealer to remove excess air and moisture.  Make sure to label your bags before storing them in a dry cool place.

  1.   Cannabis Canisters


You may have noticed that most cannabis dispensaries offer much more than marijuana goodies.  They have all sorts of on-trend cannabis products from rolling trays to high tempered glass bongs.  Another popular item that is easy to find is cannabis canisters. These are similar to the same ones that dispensaries use to display their product.

These plastic or acrylic containers let you store your marijuana in clear and easy to see canisters that also are tightly sealed.  Some even come with little magnifying glasses on the top so that you can see the details of the products you are storing. This way you can easily see if your product is still fresh depending on how long it’s been sitting on your shelf.  After all, if this storing method is good enough for dispensaries, it should work just as well for you.

  1.   Steel Discs


If you are looking for a way to store your cannabis that also makes it easy for travel, try one of the stainless steel grinder combos.  These neat little products will not only help to keep your product fresh but will also help to elevate your joint rolling game. On one side of these discs is a classic steel grinder that will perfectly grind your bud for rolling.  On the other side is a twist close storage container that will keep your cannabis fresh. The twist close will keep your bud from spilling out in your bag. This is the best way to safely bring the party with you wherever you go.

  1.   Cedar Box

Many classic smokers still believe in the wooden box storage method.  They believe that storing their bags of bud in cedar boxes, like cigar boxes; will keep their product tasting fresh.  There is some real science behind this as well. Cedarwood helps to not only keep cannabis tasty and strong but will also protect your bud from bugs and other creepy crawlers.  Best of all, you can even get your own custom-made cannabis wooden box from many online cannabis stores.

Wrapping it up

Whether you store your cannabis in a box or in a glass container, one theory remains the same.  Your bud is only as good as the care you put into storing it. Keeping it away from sunlight and in a dry cool place will not only help your product taste better but will keep it high in THC.  THC naturally breaks down over time, especially when it isn’t stored properly. So give your cannabis the best shot at staying fresh and clean and invest in one of these storage methods. Your bud will thank you.
