Edibles are some of the best (and most delicious) cannabis-infused products on the market. Their fruit flavors delight the tongue and the dosing options make it easy for you to control your high. While they’re delicious, they’re also especially prone to melting in the summer heat. No one wants to find that the cannabis-infused gummies they just bought from their favorite dispensaries in Denver
have melted inside your home when the air conditioner didn’t kick on when you wanted it to. Here are a few things you can do to keep your gummies safe and solid.
Store Them in the Fridge
Unfortunately, a lot of older homes and apartments just don’t have central air conditioning. This makes it hard to keep your gummies cool during the heat of the day. The best thing you can do is store your gummies in the fridge. The cool temperatures will keep them from melting but won’t hurt the potency of the cannabis inside them. If you don’t mind them turning into hard candies, you can eat them as-is. However, if you’d prefer the chewy experience, just take your preferred dose out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before you enjoy it.
Put Them in a Dark Cabinet
In most homes, cabinets and drawers tend to stay cooler even when the temperatures inside your home are on the rise. Use this to your advantage. Put your gummies in a dark cabinet or drawer away from electrical outlets or appliances. These can give off enough heat to melt your edibles if you’re not careful. Even better, keeping your gummies in a dark cabinet keeps them out of reach of your kids or roommates that you don’t feel like sharing with!
Keep Them in a Cooler on the Go
If you’re travelling and want to bring your gummies with you, you can’t leave them in your hot car. If you do, you’ll end up coming back to a bottle of liquified goo. This goo is almost impossible to dose accurately and the extreme heat can hurt the potency of your cannabis. Instead of leaving them in a bag in your trunk, plan ahead. Pack your gummies in a cooler or an insulated lunchbox with an ice pack. This will keep your gummies cool enough for several hours at least. Just make sure to store the bag out of the sun and only travel with your edibles in-state. Crossing state lines with cannabis is still a criminal offense even if you bought them legally in Colorado.
Stock Back Up
If the worst does happen and your gummies melt in the summer heat, don’t panic. Stop by your closest location and pick up a fresh batch of your favorite edibles. Just remember to be more cautious about how you store your replacements while the temps are on the rise. It might not be ideal, but enjoying cold gummies is still better than coping with a melted mess when all you want to do is kick back and relax.
