How to Store Cannabis

  • Keep it dry

    Cannabis should be stored in a cool, dry place with low humidity. High humidity can lead to mold and mildew, which can damage the buds and reduce their potency

  • Use airtight containers

    The best way to store cannabis is in airtight containers, such as mason jars, that are designed to keep out light and air. This will help to preserve the potency and flavor of the buds

  • Keep it cool

    Cannabis should be stored at temperatures between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid storing cannabis in areas where the temperature fluctuates, such as near a window or in a car, as this can cause the buds to dry out or become too humid

  • Avoid light

    Light can degrade the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in cannabis, which can decrease its potency. It is best to store cannabis in a dark place or to use opaque containers to protect it from light

  • Keep it away from other strong odors

    Cannabis buds can absorb odors from other things around them, so it’s best to keep them away from strong smelling items like spices, perfumes, or cleaning supplies

  • Keep it sealed

    Once opened, it is best to keep the container sealed as much as possible, this will help to maintain the humidity level and avoid the buds drying out

  • Use humidity packs

    Humidity packs keep your flower at a constant humidity level. I use 62% RHBoveda Humidity packs


It’s also important to note that curing process is important step to improve the aroma and taste, it’s best to use buds that have been properly cured before storage.

I have been a pot smoker for 44 years, and have some experience with growing. I love marijuana and feel blessed to live in a state where it is legal (Illinois). It is also legal to grow here as long as you have a medical card
