So you've got yourself some dank buds, but you're not sure how to keep them fresh and flavorful for as long as possible? Well, have no fear, because I'm here to give you some tips on how to keep your marijuana fresh and make it last longer than your college roommate's milk in the fridge.
First things first, let's talk about storage. The best way to store your cannabis is in an airtight container, such as a mason jar or a vacuum-sealed bag. This will keep the air out and the freshness in. But let's be real, who has the time for that? If you're like me and you're too lazy to vacuum seal your buds, just make sure to keep them in a dark and cool place, like the back of your fridge or your bedside table drawer.
Next up, humidity is your enemy! You want to keep your buds at a relative humidity (RH) level of around 59-63%. Anything higher and you risk mold and mildew, anything lower and your buds will be dry and lose their flavor. Invest in a hygrometer, which is a fancy device that measures humidity, or if you're feeling fancy, you can also use a Boveda pack.
Now, let's talk about light. No, not that kind of light, the other kind. UV light can cause your buds to dry out and lose their potency, so make sure to keep your cannabis away from windows and sunlight. If you want to get real fancy, you can store your buds in a UV-protected container.
Finally, the most important tip of all, don't touch your buds! Your hands are covered in oils and bacteria that can damage your buds and make them go bad faster. So, keep your hands off and enjoy the freshness of your buds for as long as possible.
In conclusion, keeping your marijuana fresh is not rocket science, but it does require some effort and attention. By following these tips, you'll be able to keep your buds fresh and flavorful for longer than you thought possible. And if all else fails, just remember to smoke them before they are not as fresh!
