How to Keep Your Weed from Going Stale

How to Keep Your Weed from Going Stale

Did you know that cannabis loses its potency over time? Depending on how it is stored, cannabis can last from six months to a year before it begins to lose its potency. 

When it comes to storing weed, there are a range of techniques and products out there, this includes everything from simply keeping it in a cool, dark place, to specially designed stash bags for weed

Does Weed Expire?

Weed doesn't expire in the same sense that food does. Unless it is moldy or contaminated, smoking old cannabis shouldn’t make you sick. But the older your weed is, the more the taste and potency will be affected. As cannabis ages, its THC level weakens, and it will have less of an effect. A shorthand way to check this is to smell your stash. As weed ages, its normal aroma can wane. 

This aging process is accelerated when cannabis is exposed to factors such as light, humidity and temperature. 

Keeping your weed in a cool, dark, and dry place will help to slow this to an extent. But if you would like to keep your stash in the best condition, it is highly recommended that you keep it in a specially designed holder. 

 Airtight Stash Jars

A glass stash jar can be a good place to store weed. So long as they are airtight, glass jars do a good job reducing oxygen exposure, and preventing your weed from aging. Just be wary to keep your stash jar out of the sun, since sunlight can speed up the degradation process. 

Another thing to be wary of is the type of glass used. A weaker glass can shatter when dropped, which is the last thing you want. A Greener Leaf stocks a wide range of durable stash jars, complete with printed decals.

Stash Bags

A great way to store weed is a specially designed stash bag. Not only can stash bags be used to store weed, but they are also a practical and safe way for transporting it. A larger bag is spacious enough to fit weed, a bong and all the accessories you want.

A Greener Leaf is proud to stock a range of DL branded stash bags. These bags feature a smell-proof, activated-carbon lining. This allows you to keep and transport weed without anybody else knowing. The larger sized bags feature padded interiors, making them perfect for transporting a bong alongside your weed. 

If that wasn’t enough already, the DL range is lockable, ensuring nobody can access your stash without you knowing.
