If you are like me, you have multiple strains of flower, each strain for a different purpose: pain, anxiety, relaxation. I am always worried about keeping my flower fresh, and various strains help with what’s ailing me at that moment. I recently was given a Cannabis Promotion hemp jar and was surprised at how good this Cannabis storage container has kept my flower fresh. These hemp-based plastic jars are entirely recyclable, making them environmentally friendly. I had trouble keeping some of my buds fresh when stored over 30 days. Now I need to find out how to order more to keep all my buds fresh. 

Keeping your Cannabis Fresh

Before I received this Cannabis storage container, I was looking for one to keep my flower fresh. Preserving your Cannabis in an airtight container is critical for keeping your bud fresh by storing correctly in:

  • Temperate conditions between 50- and 68-degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Humidity levels between 51% and 64%.
  • Indirect light and away from heat.
  • Airtight space where oxygen can’t degrade the plant matter.

By following these simple points, you can store your marijuana for up to a year. This will help preserve both potency and aroma for that time with minimal loss. Not following these rules will quickly degrade potency and aroma over time, much quicker than with proper storage. 

To put some numbers to show how your bud will change even with proper storage, you can expect a 16% percent drop in THC content with adequate storage in one year. Image how much THC loss you will get without proper storage; the loss will be based on how you store it, so it could cause a loss of 50% of its THC in a few months if the humidity is high and in direct sun. I would not recommend storing for more than a year, as after four years, your THC will be 40% less potent with proper storage.

If your not into growing your own Cannabis for the freshest bud then keeping your bud at the correct temperature and humidity levels will ensure your weed is not ruined before your experience. Keeping the sun’s UV rays and oxygen is critical to this goal.  

The plan is to buy great weed and keep it fresh, so you will preserve your bud’s smell, taste, and potency when choosing your storage container. It will also ensure that the marijuana order does not escape the container. So be sure to follow these points to keep your flower in its optimal state.

Airtight Seal: You are just throwing your money away if it’s not airtight. The smallest amount of air will allow bacteria and other things that will begin to break down your weed. Look for a tight seal; silicone or rubber gaskets provide the best seal for a truly airtight container. 

The Right Size: purchase multiple size containers. Using an oversized container for a small amount of bud will leave too much space for air once sealed. Try and use a container size that fits your stash; it’s best to have various sizes on hand. 

Keep Light Away: Find a container that keeps Light out. Light is a killer and will break down your bud faster. Find a UV-resistant material or glass jars with a coating to keep the UV light out. 

Keeps Aroma Inside: Not all containers are created equal. It’s essential to keep the amoras in and not allow them to escape.
