Where and how to best store your stash

Where and how to best store your stash

Inside a sock in your sock drawer may be one of the most common ways to store your marijuana, but it's not necessarily the most elegant or effective. It's nearly 2018, weed is legal in more places than ever, and it's time to retire the baggies you're using, and put your product in a much better place.

First: where does your weed want to be? According to the folks at ZenPype, your weed likes a place that's dark, dry, and solid. Dark because light (both visible and UV) can destroy the trichomes in your nugs over time. Most people don't necessarily store their weed out in the light, but it's true that putting it somewhere where light can easily reach can hurt the potency, and destroy the best parts of this plant that a farmer somewhere has painstakingly created for you.

The "dry" point might be pretty obvious -- soggy weed is gross, not to mention it doesn't light or burn well. You don't want a place that's too dry -- if there's constantly air flowing around, you could get mold showing up, or hurt the structure of the plant with constant changes in humidity or temperature. Finally, though your dealer might give you weed in baggies, you should really keep it in a solid container. That way it won't rub up against the nuggs (stealing those all-important trichomes), and it'll catch everything that drops off of the sticks and stems when moved around.

Any airtight glass jar will do you fine (you can grab them at Target for relatively cheap), though if you want to go with some branded product, PuffItUp has plenty of great storage options for you. Long gone are the days of baggies and just tossing nugs in your pockets -- if you're an adult, it's time to get yourself some adult storage for your favorite drug.
