Yes, it is not just about buying it because cannabis is now legal in your town.
It is also about storing it appropriately.
CBD flowers in some places might be slightly on the expensive side, so we can understand why you are so pressed about storing them properly. After all, we wouldn’t want the money to go to waste because we have unintentionally ruined the effects.
Believe it or not, there are several ways in which you could be storing CBD flowers incorrectly. Some might be so common that you do not even realize it.
But don’t worry. If you are already here, then sit back and learn from your mistakes.
What Is CBD Flower?
It is the dried flower that is extracted from the cannabis branch of Sativa. These mostly contain cannabidiol in their component and little to no THC. This is one of the reasons why it is the safest form of Cannabis because it doesn’t have any of the intoxication compounds of THC.
Inappropriate Ways CBD Flower Is Stored
These are some of the common mistakes you are making while you are storing CBD.
1. Exposing To Direct Sunlight
This is the worst thing that you can do with your CBD flower, store it somewhere which is closer to sunlight.
With the ultraviolet rays cooking the CBD flower from inside, you can say goodbye to all the medicinal or relaxing properties of the herb. The cannabidiol product, once exposed to sunlight, loses its ways of reacting with the cannabinoid receptors.
In short, you have wasted the entire batch.
2. Storing It In Plastic Container
Suppose you are planning on storing the CND flower for a shorter duration than you can go for plastic. But, if you plan to store the flower for more than a month or two and then use it, plastic could be worse.
Once the plastic starts reacting with the trichomes of the flower, the effects will be adverse. They will stick to the outer layer of the plastic, making it impossible for you to use these flowers.
3. Tobacco Humidor For Storage
Now, you must be thinking.
‘I have been storing them in the tobacco humidor for quite some time now.’
Well, you should stop doing that immediately. This might seem like a harmless option, but you don’t know the ways in which you are destroying the flavor of the CBD flower.
Many tobacco humidors are made of wood, mostly cedarwood. These woods have more oil consistency, and they react with the herb destroying the original flavor of CBD.
4. Anything Which Emits Heat
Any appliance or material which is known for emitting heat is something that you should absolutely not store in your CBD flower.
Of course, you wouldn’t be storing your flower inside the toaster, but even keeping it besides can cause a big nuisance. This is because any excess amount of heat can start cooking the oil present inside the CBD flower and eventually destroy it.
5. Anything Which Freezes
Now you must be thinking, ‘if heat is the issue then I will store it in the refrigerator.’ Now, that could be a problem as well.
Keeping aside the growth of mold, which can be caused because of the fluctuating temperature inside the freezer, too much cold can make the herb go brittle(not easy to mold or shape). Then you will start having difficulty when you are smoking it or making edibles,
6. Vaping Items
Vaping items seem like another great place to store all your CBD flowers, but that could cause some new problems as well.
The ashes or resins, which are the residues of your previous smoke session, could easily mix with the elements of the flower and cause some changes in its effects.
Do Not Know Where To Store!
When you do not know where to store it, you are more likely to be storing it anywhere you please, and this is not the right way to enjoy your CBD flower.
If you want to understand the right ways to use CBD, first take note of the wrong ways.
A best-storing place would be a cool, dry place that is not freezing and does not release its own compounds, which can go mixed with the CBD flower.
