Most people are focused on keeping their tools protected from damage that either comes from accidental drops or damage that’s sustained while traveling with them.
But while protecting your tools is essential to saving money and making sure that your collection is safe from harm, there’s another crucial aspect of your smoking process that needs to be focused on: your bud.
If you want to get the most out of your flower and ensure that it’s ready to go when you are, here are some ways you can keep your cannabis safe moving forward.
Why Should You Keep Cannabis Safe?
Many people think that their cannabis is going to last a while, but that’s not necessarily true. Storage can greatly impact the quality of your weed, with poor storage strategies leading to weed that simply isn’t enjoyable to smoke. Not storing your weed also puts it at risk of being taken by someone else (although this isn’t a concern that all smokers may share). Regardless of why you may be worried about your weed, let’s dive into a few ways you can make a difference in how you treat your weed.
How to Keep Weed Safe
Ready to take better care of your cannabis? Excellent! A few great ways to do so are…
Not all smokers live alone or in an environment where their activities are completely accepted. For example, if you live with your parents or you live with roommates who don’t smoke themselves and look down upon it, you’ll likely want to keep your stash safe. Another common scenario is that you have children that tend to get into things. One wrong move and you and your cannabis stash and paraphernalia are in the wrong hands.
The solution? Get yourself a stash box! Stash boxes allow you to hide your weed and prevent the smell of it from leaking through and out into your environment. If you’re worried that someone may still come across it, you can get a stash box with a lock so that only you can access it when you need it. It’s not always ideal, but it’s better than losing your weed!
Misplacing or crushing your weed can be easy when it’s thrown around anywhere. If you’re the type to lose your tools and your cannabis, you should purchase a rolling tray where you can keep all of your tools and your weed. This won’t necessarily preserve the quality of your weed, but it will keep it all in one place and away from harm.
Some people love jars and, if you do, you’ll be pleased to know there are stash jars. Stash jars keep weed fresh and keep it away from prying eyes. Jars are also very easy to carry and you can find them in a wide variety of sizes for your storage and traveling needs!
How to Keep Your Weed Fresh
Safe and fresh are two different things. If you not only want to protect your weed but preserve it, you’re going to want to store it in a dark, airtight container that’s stored in a cool, dry place. If you put your weed somewhere humid, mold growth can occur, tainting your weed and making it unsafe to smoke. If you store your weed somewhere in direct sunlight, it can dry out your weed and decrease its efficacy (something that no smoker wants to deal with after they invest in high-quality bud). Keep these items in mind as you aim to keep your weed fresh as well!
There are so many tools out there designed to help you preserve your glass smoking accessories and beyond. But when it comes to cannabis, the focus may not be there for users. If you want to make sure that your weed stays away from those who shouldn’t see it, protect it from getting lost or damaged, and ensure that it remains the same quality as when you purchased it for as long as possible, use the tips above to keep your cannabis fresh, safe, and ready to go whenever you want to take a hit of it from your bowls or joints!
