The Best Ways to Store Your Stash From Local Weed Shops in Denver

July 4, 2018

If you’re like most smokers, you have a large stash of your favorite bud and pot products from your favorite Denver dispensary waiting for you at home. After all, keeping pot on hand is no longer taboo and the larger your stash, the easier it is to avoid running out. However, if you’re going to keep a large stash on hand, it’s important that you know how to properly store your bud so it lasts. Here are a few things to keep in mind when figuring out the best storage methods for your needs.

Always Avoid Plastic

Plastic zipper bags may be the most common way to keep pot, but they’re also one of the worst things you can use for your bud if you want it to last more than a week. Plastic bags often cause your buds to dry out improperly, making them brittle and forcing them to lose all those wonderful trichomes before you get to enjoy your next smoke sesh. The fewer trichomes on the bud, the less potent of a high you’ll achieve. If you have to use plastic, consider cleaning out an old medicine bottle and stashing your bud inside for no more than a few days. This will help keep the bud potent while also protecting it from getting crushed inside your cabinet.

Stick With Glass

Glass is by far the best way to keep your bud fresh, but you need to make sure the container is air-tight. Look for jars that have rubber-sealed lids or opt for traditional mason jars available at almost any grocery store. These can hold a lot of bud in a single container and will allow your bud to continue to cure inside. Glass has the added benefit of reducing smell seepage, making it ideal for people living in a house with roommates who might not indulge. Best of all, glass won’t create static around the bud, preserving the trichomes and keeping the flavor as fresh as possible.

Never Ever Refrigerate Your Bud

While keeping edibles in the fridge may be a good idea, it’s one of the worst things you can do for bud. Even when they’re stored in air-tight containers, buds can mold inside the fridge, making them unusable and forcing you to throw away all that money you spent on accumulating your stash. If you’re looking for a way to make your bud last as long as possible, put it inside a glass jar in the freezer. This keeps the relative moisture levels from building up around the bud and the low temperature environment eliminates concerns of mold or mildew contaminating the weed.
The easiest way to keep your weed fresh is to only buy what you plan on using. Though this means you’ll be visiting the dispensary more frequently, it also means you’re getting the best and most potent high possible.
