Keep your stash on the DL (dark and locked).
If you’re wondering why the better-quality cannabis storage accessories are made with black materials, it’s for a few great reasons – to keep your stash safe, fresh, and potent.
Exposure to light can cause the cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis to degrade, leading to a loss of potency and flavor. Oxygen too, can cause the THC and other cannabinoids to break down, leading to a loss of potency. Exposure to air can cause the cannabis to dry out and become brittle, which can affect the quality and potency of the product.
Light degrades trichomes and bleaches chlorophyll, changing visual appearance, while also being tied to evaporation of terpenes. Oxygen degrades THC into CBN – another cannabinoid; less psychoactive, but highly correlated with sleep (often called a sleep-aid and now being marketed as such).
There are a few key reasons why storing cannabis in a dark, airtight container is important:
- To preserve potency: THC and other cannabinoids are sensitive to light and air exposure, which can cause them to break down and lose their potency. By storing cannabis in a dark, airtight container, you can help to preserve the potency of the product.
- To prevent degradation: The exposure to light and air can cause the cannabis to degrade over time, leading to a loss of flavor and aroma. Storing cannabis in a dark, airtight container can help to prevent this degradation and maintain the quality of the product.
- To keep the cannabis fresh: Proper storage can help to preserve the freshness of the cannabis and prevent it from becoming dry or brittle.
- To protect against contaminants: Storing cannabis in a dark, airtight container can help to keep it free from external contaminants such as dust and moisture, which can affect the quality of the product.
