Anyone who uses or has used cannabis in the past has probably heard that storing cannabis flower in an airtight container keeps it fresh and preserves its quality. While some users may not understand the logic behind this advice, there’s a solid scientific reason why vacuum sealing cannabis is essential.
Once a cannabis plant matures, continued exposure to the elements causes it to degrade. That’s why marijuana cultivators have to harvest their crop at just the right time; any later and the plants will start to lose their potency. Once the plants have been harvested and processed, the same level of care is needed to preserve them.
In this case, it is proper storage. Did you know that how and where you store your cannabis will have a major impact on its flavor and potency? Most users prefer the traditional jar but vacuum sealers can keep your cannabis fresh even longer by keeping air and moisture away from your stash.
Continued exposure to the elements alongside heat will degrade cannabis and render it useless. The first thing you want to do is to keep your marijuana away from any heat sources because heat will cause the terpenes in the cannabis to dry out, killing its flavor and taste. Conversely, super-low temperatures will also degrade the trichomes and impact the flavor. A dark closet or drawer far from any heat sources would be an ideal storage location.
Light is the second foe. The cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis will break down under exposure to ultraviolet light, essentially stripping the cannabis of its potency and flavor. Storing marijuana away from the sun and any other light source will prevent this.
Your third enemy is water. High humidity can cause cannabis to trap more moisture and encourage the growth of mold on buds. A humidity of 59–63% will prevent the growth of mold while keeping cannabis from drying out.
But if you are looking to purchase cannabis in bulk and store it for a long time, vacuum sealing could be the way to go. It has already been proven that this method can keep foods such as meat fresh, and many cannabis users are already using vacuum sealing to store their flower.
Vacuum seals are a great way to prevent mold growth because they are completely airtight and do not let in any air or moisture. Furthermore, this method will prevent marijuana’s distinctive odor from getting out, keeping your cannabis private and preserving its fragrance and aroma. Ultimately, it wouldn’t be wise to invest in high-quality marijuana products made by companies such as Red White & Bloom Brands Inc. (CSE: RWB) (OTCQX: RWBYF) and then let those products degrade rapidly due to improper storage.
