Unless you want to make a trip to the dispensary every time you want to enjoy a little green, you’ll need to learn how to properly store your weed. After all, proper storage will prevent the quality of your weed from degrading over time. Not sure where to begin when it comes to storing your weed? We’ve got you covered.
Keep Weed Out of Direct Sunlight
Plants love the sun, right? Weed is an exception. After it’s been removed from its literal roots, sunlight is actually one of weed’s worst enemies. This is why it’s a good idea to invest in some kind of quality storage container that will keep your weed covered and protected from sunlight.
Don’t Overlook Humidity Control
Another thing many people don’t realize about storing weed is that humidity control is also important. Too much moisture in the air around your plant can actually cause mold and mildew to grow. This, of course, makes it unsafe for consumption!
Ideally, weed should be stored in a room with relative humidity levels hovering somewhere between about 59% and 63%. This does seem awfully precise, but indoor relative humidity in most homes is within this range. If you live in a dry climate, however, it may be worth investing in a storage container for your weed that can control humidity as well.
Store Weed at the Right Temperature
Temperature is another factor that can affect the quality of your weed over time. Weed that is stored in a room that’s too hot will be prone to moisture that can cause the same problems mentioned above (mold and mildew growth). Meanwhile, weed that’s stored at temperatures that are too cold can dry out.
Generally, the optimal temperature for storing weed is between 70 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. If this is the temperature you keep your home’s thermostat set to, great. If not, then it may be time to purchase a storage container for your weed that has its own temperature control settings. Oh, and with all this in mind…don’t leave your weed in your car!
The Bottom Line on Proper Weed Storage
With proper storage, you can keep your weed safe (and enjoyable) to smoke for a long time, which can help save you money and trips to the dispensary. The key is keeping it at the right temperature and humidity level while avoiding exposure to sunlight as much as possible.
