Weed Storage Guide: How to store flower and joints?
Just like our favorite tunes and moments, cannabis has its own rhythm and flow. To keep your stash at optimal potency and flavor, proper storage is your key to quality. Whether you’re a casual fan or an aficionado, these simple storage tips will keep your supplies in their prime and ready for the next sesh.
Let’s dive into how to keep your weed in prime condition, ensuring every sesh is as fresh as the last one.
Best Ways to Store flower & Joints
Glass jars are the way to go – think mason jars with tight lids. They keep your cannabis flavor preserved and prevent it from drying out.
Keep it in a cool, stable spot – around 70°F (21°C) is perfect. Avoid those hot or cold areas like attics, basements, glove compartments or garages.
Aim for a smooth 55-65% relative humidity. Too humid? You might hit a moldy note. Too dry? Your flower could become unattractively dry.

Upright Container (for joints)

Light, especially UV, can degrade flower quality and fade that gorgeous green or purple. Store your stash in a dark, cozy spot, like a cupboard or drawer.
Avoid Plastic Bags and Containers
Steer clear of plastic for long-term storage. It’s like playing a classic vinyl on a cheap turntable – it just doesn’t do justice to the flavor.
Consider using humidity packs designed for cannabis storage. These little lifesavers maintain the perfect moisture level, keeping your cannabis in its happy place. And each Fernway eighth comes with one included.
UV-Protected Glass Jars
For that extra layer of care, opaque or UV-protected jars block those harsh rays, keeping your weed wonderfully fresh.
Keep your strains solo to preserve their unique flavors and personalities, and make sure you don’t mix them up. Think of it like keeping a shelf of records organized by artist – you want to reduce the amount of time between making your choice and picking it up.
Keep the touching to a minimum to protect those precious trichomes. The more you jostle your flower, the more those little cannabinoid-rich jewels get knocked off the flower.
Understanding Shelf Life
Cannabis doesn’t exactly “go bad,” but it can lose potency and flavor over time. Here’s what you can expect:
- 6 Months to 1 Year: This is the optimal time frame to use your stored cannabis, though it can last longer under ideal conditions.
- THC Degradation: Over time, THC breaks down, especially if improperly stored. You may notice a loss in potency after a year.
Other Common Concerns
Look out for any discoloration, musty smells, or visible mold. If you spot mold, it’s best to discard the affected cannabis.
Reviving Dry Cannabis
If your weed gets dry, a humidity pack can help reintroduce some moisture. However, once the original terpenes are lost, they can’t be regained.
Glass is preferable. Avoid storing cannabis in the refrigerator or freezer, as this can cause moisture issues.
With these simple yet savvy storage steps, your weed will stay as fresh, potent, and delightful as ever. So when the moment’s right, you’re all set for that consistent, quality Fernway experience. Here’s to savoring each session, knowing your bud is kept just the way they should be.
