What’s the Best Way to Store Weed?

Ball Regular Mouth Mason Jars with Lids and Bands, 16-Ounces (4-Pack)

Everyone has their own opinion on the best way to store weed. No one wants to have their nug dry out and go stale! Just like all plants, once cannabis has been picked it will begin to decompose very quickly. This decomposition will negatively affect your cannabis flower in many ways; this includes the loss of moisture, the potential buildup of mold, and much more. Here we will talk about different methods of proper cannabis storage.


Light and Moisture=Bad

Some of the more popular ways are zip-lock bags, unsealed plastic containers, large glass mason jars, etc, however, we don’t believe these are the most effective methods of storing your weed. Light and moisture will be two of the main things you must look out for and all of those mentioned methods allow both in.

Light will degrade the potency of the cannabis flower and cause it to dry out faster and even further; too much moisture will cause mold to build up inside your container and can cause a variety of different health issues.


What Actually Is the Best?

The best bet in storing your cannabis flower will be in a cool (50ºF-75ºF), dark location and in an airtight/sealed, opaque container. A vacuum sealed container is even better; the less oxygen that can be trapped with the weed the better.

Many also use a vacuum sealer with Mylar bags, which also has many benefits, however you can physically damage the cannabis flower and effect its smell. We really only recommend this if glass/plastic containers are not available.
