Whether you are an experienced or new medicinal cannabis patient, chances are you have wondered if you were storing your cannabis correctly. Just as we handle other medications with care, it’s equally important to treat your medical cannabis with the respect and attention it deserves. Proper storage is an integral part of responsible cannabis use, ensuring you receive the full benefits of your medication.
Why is Proper Cannabis Storage Important?
• Preservation of Potency: Exposure to light, heat, and air can lead to the degradation of cannabinoids and terpenes, potentially reducing the effectiveness of your medication. Proper storage helps maintain the potency and therapeutic benefits of your medical cannabis.
• Mitigation of Contaminants: Storing cannabis in the right conditions helps prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. These contaminants can be harmful when inhaled and may compromise your health.
• Ensuring Safety: Especially in households with children or pets, secure storage is essential to prevent unintended consumption. A secure storage solution helps maintain a safe environment for everyone.
Best Practices for Cannabis Storage:
From dried cannabis to softgels and vapes – as a general rule across all formats – cannabis should be kept in an airtight container in a cold, dark location to ensure optimal preservation. Safe storage of cannabis helps keep everyone safe, especially children and pets. Keep it up high and out of reach, securely packaged, and locked up.
We recommend storage products like the Medium Silverton or Small Silverton by Stashlogix. They offer secure, lockable, and portable storage options for your cannabis needs and are available within our Accessories category.
