Cannabis has been used for medical purposes for centuries, with India's earliest records of its
use. In India, ancient people used cannabis to create medicine, which they then infused with
cannabis to cure various diseases. Cannabis edibles can last a long time if they are correctly
stored. Those who want to buy or make their own cannabis edibles should know how to store
them so they will stay fresh.
Where to Store Your Cannabis Edibles
Three particular materials work best in storing cannabis edibles without sacrificing their flavor
To store cannabis concentrates for long-term freshness, use parchment paper to wrap small
quantities of edibles. Then, seal these individually wrapped pieces inside a Ziploc bag. For extra
protection, place the Ziploc bag inside an airtight container. This will help keep your cannabis
concentrates fresh for up to one month.
Glass jars can be a great way to store cannabis products, depending on the product. If the
product is sticky, wrap it in parchment paper before storing it in the glass jar. If the product is not
sticky, it can be stored in a vacuum-sealed jar.
This method of freezing concentrates will help to keep them fresh for up to one year without
compromising taste or quality. However, care must be taken when preparing the concentrate for
freezing, as moisture can ruin the product. To prevent this, the user should remove any extra air
from the container and thaw the concentrate slowly to avoid any sudden temperature changes.
Edibles can also be frozen using this method, though not for as long as concentrates.
How to Store Your Cannabis Edibles
To store your cannabis edibles for the long term, consider doing the following:
- Wrap the Edibles Properly
It's best to avoid using plastic sandwich baggies or wrap when freezing edibles, as they may
cause the food to stick to the plastic and affect the taste.
- Wrap Edibles in Wax or Parchment Paper
Instead of using plastic to wrap your edibles, it is better to use wax or parchment paper. This is
because the edibles will come off easier, and these materials will help to preserve the taste of
the food. Using these materials will also ensure that the edibles do not stick together.
- Keep Edibles Away from Direct Sunlight
When you remove cannabis buds from the plant and use them to make edibles, they are no
longer effective when exposed to sunlight. Light will degrade the potency of cannabutter, oils,
distillate, and other cannabis products. Be sure to store your edibles in an opaque container in
the freezer to keep the light away.
- Consider Mason Jars
Remember that liquids will expand when frozen, so don't overfill your jars. It's best to leave a
little bit of headspace to allow for this expansion. Wrap jars in opaque bags or store them in
dark containers to prevent light exposure. Squeeze out as much air as possible from plastic
bags before freezing, or use a vacuum sealer for best results.
- Don't Let Moisture or Air in the Containers
To ensure that your edibles stay potent and fresh-tasting for as long as possible, store them in
either silicone containers or glass jars. These materials will help to keep out moisture and air,
which can degrade the quality of your edibles. Be sure to leave some headspace in the
container, especially if you're storing cannabis edibles, as air can cause the THC to break down
Cannabis edibles can be a great way to consume cannabis, but they must be stored properly to
maintain their quality and shelf life. Edibles should be stored in an airtight container in a cool,
dark place. If possible, they should also be stored in a refrigerator or freezer.
