In herb vaping, many factors can affect the quality of your vapour. The temperature, quality of vape and herb, and the condition of vape can mean the difference between a good vaping session and a bad one.
One of the things that most herb vape enthusiasts don’t realize is the proper storage of cannabis buds has a great impact on your vaping experience. If you are a regular vaper, you probably buy cannabis once or twice a month then store it.
If you don’t store your cannabis properly, it can dry out too fast. You’d want your cannabis to be dry but not entirely devoid of moisture. Once loaded on a vape, this dry herb can cause a harsh vapour that makes you cough much more than usual. On the other hand, too much rehydrating can encourage mold growth.
Proper humidity level
You don’t want harsh vapours and you definitely don’t want to be vaping mold. The ideal humidity for storing cannabis is between 59% and 63% RH (relative humidity). You can use humidipaks for easier humidity control.
Keeping herbs in an airtight container can avoid exposure to oxygen. Oxygen can degrade the potency of your bud. We advise storing cannabis in a glass airtight jar.
Too warm temperatures can dry out essential oils on your herb. Too cold temperatures can also promote mold growth. Keep in mind that anything “too much” can affect your buddy bud! Store it in a cool environment not exceeding 23°C.
Just like how UV is harmful to your body, it is also harmful to Mary Jane. Too much exposure to light rays can degrade cannabis. Make sure to store it out of direct light to preserve the cannabinoids.
Storing cannabis isn’t really that complicated. Store it in an airtight jar in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight.
And, some bonus tips!
- Avoid placing cannabis near appliances and electronics
