Six Ways To Keep Your Weed Fresh
Vacuum Seal Weed Bags
Vacuum seal bags are a great way to get that airtight seal to lock in the freshness, taste, and smell of weed. Vacuum seal machines have come down in price in the past few years and come in all shapes and sizes. These bags are great in combination with freezing and keep the buds from getting any kind of freezer burn. Vacuum sealing also does wonders for keeping the smell of fresh weed from coating the room. This comes in handy when you don’t want your whole house smelling like a weed dispensary. Vacuum seal bags aren’t great for mobility. If you want access to your buds, you must tear open the bag and can’t reseal it.
Zip Lock Bags
This is the OG way of keeping your weed fresh. It’s not your best option on this list but it is the most widely used option. Zip Lock bags offer little in odor control and air tightness but it makes up for it with versatility and availability. You can find these bags just about anywhere in a pinch. Just make sure you don’t buy sandwich bags, they don’t seal. You can try and push out as much air as possible when sealing a Zip Lock bag but it won’t ever be as good as a vacuum seal. Zip Lock bags are good for carrying weed considering you can reseal them.
Canning jars are one of the best ways to keep your weed fresh. Canning jars are jars that have two parts that make up the lid; the outer ring that threads on, and the actual lid that has a rubberized gasket and creates an airtight seal keeping your weed fresh. These jars come in all shapes and sizes making it easy to find just the right size for your weed needs. These jars do a good job of keeping the weed fresh and keeping the smell of weed from escaping too much. Canning jars are like Mason jars and sometimes are referred to as Mason jars.
Mason jars with the rubberized seal or gasket are great for keeping your weed fresh. Much like Canning jars, Mason jars come in all shapes and sizes. Mason jars have more variations on the lid compared to the Canning jars. Mason jars can have lids that are attached to the jar by hinges, but the rubberized seals are still there. If you want to be a hipster about your weed storage, go find yourself an antique Ball Mason jar.
There is a debate on whether freezing weed is the best route to go if you need to store your weed for long periods of time. I have had friends use this method to much success and there are several forums where people claim to freeze their weed with no negative consequences. It makes sense, the freezer is used to keep lots of things from spoiling. Make sure when you use the freezer to put the weed in an airtight container. Double or triple bag it to avoid freezer burn if you must.
Much like the Zip Lock bags, the medicine bottle doesn’t offer much in odor control and air tightness. However, medicine bottles do offer a convenient way to carry weed without crushing it. The medicine bottle is good for carrying your weed during outdoor activities. The Zip Lock bags may tear in rugged situations but a medicine bottle tucked away in your gear is more likely to hold up to abuse.
