Storing & keeping fresh marijuana (weed).
The best ways to store your cannabis & pot.
Many people have asked us for the best way to store
marijuana and keep it as potent as possible. Storing your cannabis buds and keeping it
fresh and potent is not as difficult as you might think.
But many people believe that freezing your buds is the
way to go for maximum freshness and potency. THIS IS NOT TRUE
- IT IS A MYTH AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY. And, keeping it
only in clear plastic bags is NOT ideal either (another
On the contrary, freezing your marijuana
is NOT the
best practice and here's why...
After all your work in growing your prized buds, you
want to keep it fresh and potent for as long as you have
it. When you grew your marijuana you waited until
the trichomes (resin glands) were just right before your harvest so
that you would have the best potency you could from
When you freeze marijuana buds, you freeze those
potent little trichomes as well (like icicles). This makes them stiff
and brittle and actually makes them fall off and break
off the buds.
The more you handle the buds in and out of the freezer,
the more you lose those active ingredients that make the
pot get you high.
Yep, they freeze and actually
break-off the buds and fall into whatever bag or
container you have, making the weed less potent.
All plastic bags have some static, even this static
attracts the resin glands that you are trying to protect
and keep intact. While I recommend using plastic
sealable bags, I do not recommend freezing your weed or
handling it more than is necessary if it is frozen.
Keep the quantity of marijuana you
wish to store separate from your daily use stash.
Put it in brown bags (or any dark paper), then place it
in your ziploc bags and remove any air that you can.
Refrigerate, or keep in a cool place where there is
little activity preventing any constant movement or
handling. This will keep your cannabis both fresh
and potent for a very long time.
This should help you store your marijuana
successfully and have it available and potent for as
long as you can make it last...
