HOW TO PROPERLY STORE
Storage is an important consideration when it comes to keeping cannabis in its optimal state. Original Farm understands the importance of properly storing cannabis products. Without proper controls in place, products may encounter dryness and degradation through decarboxylation (a conversion process accelerated by heat and light).
use opaque containers to keep cannabis away from a direct light source.
use vacuum sealing, and airtight containers ie: CVault.
use of humidity control packets ie: Boveda products.
store cannabis in a cool, dark area where the temperature doesn’t fluctuate too much, and remains constant around 65 F, or within ten degrees of 65 F at all times.
“If you want the best possible cure, you need to store cannabis in an environment with stable relative humidity (RH) within the ideal range [59-63%]. Boveda responds to conditions inside the CVault, absorbing or releasing moisture to maintain the ideal 62% humidity inside.”
store cannabis in a cool, dark location
According to a study published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, cannabis or extracts are reasonably stable for 1 to 2 years if stored properly.
