In many states that have medical marijuana programs, patients are only able to purchase small amounts of cannabis at one time. However, some people still prefer to stock up all at once so that they do not have to keep making trips back to the dispensary. This is especially true for people who do not live in close proximity to a dispensary in their area, and have to travel upwards of 2 hours or more each time they want to get some weed – yes, this is a reality for many people in the United States! Consequently, it may be easier for these patients to buy their whole monthly allotment of weed at once.

The problem with this is that some patients do not know how to properly store their weed. When you don’t store your weed properly, you can’t risk losing some of the medicinal benefits as well as the flavor and effectiveness of the buds or flowers. Overall, you do not want to end up smoking dry, stale, or moldy weed. While there are some veteran smokers out there that may be scoffing at the thought of not storing their weed properly, there is no shame in being a beginner to the idea of storing your cannabis.

If you are new to the marijuana industry and need some advice on how to properly store your weed, then you have come to the right place. Cannabis is becoming more and more accessible in the United States, which means that it is becoming increasingly popular for people to visit the dispensary a few times a month. We would hate for you to spend your hard earned money on marijuana, only to have it go bad after a few days due to not being stored properly. So without further ado, here is what you need to know about storing your medical or recreational marijuana. 

So can cannabis actually go bad? After all, isn’t it like any other herb that just dries up? Well, cannabis can actually go bad. The first thing you need to know about cannabis going bad is that the THC content declines over time. Most weed that you buy from the dispensary is very fresh, potent, and ready to be smoked. This is the type of weed that you buy, open up the container, and get a good whiff before rolling a joint and having a nice afternoon. While cannabis retains its THC overtime, it still loses some of its potency if left out for too long. If you store your marijuana properly, you can make it last a long time without worrying about some of the THC content declining. Part of what makes smoking cannabis so enjoyable is the rich flavors and aromas that you can experience from various strains and buds. If you let your weed dry up due to not storing it the right way, you can lose a lot of the flavonoids that make it so nice and smooth. The last thing you want to do with your weed is not smoke it to its fullest extent. So if you just bought a lot of weed for the month and are looking forward to smoking it from time to time over the next few weeks, make sure that you store it properly to enjoy it to the fullest!

The other thing about cannabis is that it can actually get moldy, like any other organic matter. For most people out there, a little mold on their food is not necessarily the end of the world. However, smoking cannabis with mold is not good for you, especially if you are already dealing with some health conditions or a compromised immune system.
