Cannabis Storage 101: The Essential Guide to Maintaining Freshness and Potency

Cannabis Storage 101: The Essential Guide to Maintaining Freshness and Potency

Did you know that the way you store your cannabis can have a big impact on its potency and freshness? Proper storage is essential for ensuring that your cannabis remains fresh and retains its maximum potency.

At Earth to Sky, we are committed to providing our customers with the highest-quality cannabis products on the market. One important aspect of this is ensuring that our products are stored properly, from the moment they leave the grower to the moment they reach your hands. Whether you're a seasoned cannabis connoisseur or a first-time user, it's important to understand the importance of proper storage and how it can impact the quality and effects of your cannabis.

The first step in proper cannabis storage is to ensure it is stored in an airtight container. This will prevent the escape of precious terpenes, which are responsible for the unique aroma, flavour, and effects of each strain. By keeping your cannabis in an airtight container, you can maintain its freshness and potency for longer.

Another important aspect of proper cannabis storage is keeping it in a cool, dark place. Exposure to light and heat can cause the degradation of the cannabinoids and terpenes, reducing the potency of your cannabis. If you don't have a cool, dark place in your home, a refrigerator or freezer can also be used for long-term storage. However, it is important to note that extreme temperature changes can cause damage to your cannabis, so be sure to store it in a sealed container and allow it to acclimate to room temperature before opening.

Proper humidity control is also crucial when it comes to cannabis storage. If the humidity levels are too high, it can encourage the growth of mould and bacteria, while too low humidity can cause the cannabis to dry out and become brittle. A relative humidity of 62-65% is considered optimal for cannabis storage. Humidity packs, like the Boveda packs we carry at Earth to Sky, can help maintain the proper relative humidity levels and protect your cannabis from damage.

Get the most out of your cannabis by trying out these tips for yourself and seeing what techniques work best for you. Proper storage of your cannabis is essential for ensuring that it remains fresh, potent, and ready for use when you need it. By storing your cannabis in an airtight container, keeping it in a cool, dark place, and maintaining the proper humidity levels, you can ensure that you are getting the most out of your cannabis and preventing any degradation of cannabinoids and terpenes.
