How Much Does Weed Degrade From Air and Heat?

To know more about the long-term storage of weed, we need to have in-depth knowledge of the physical and chemical components of cannabis resin. Research has shown that exposure to air and indirect temperature variation are the most significant variables in cannabis degeneration.

In fact, all vegetative matter is susceptible to oxidation. Significant changes are observed in the chemical composition and the total percentage of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Even though there are no standard storage procedures to keep weed safe and active for a long time, there are some professional practices that make the storage process quite effective.

Ideal storage conditions vary with the type of weed. If you use concentrates, they do not contain any living plant matter, so there are no chances of mold affecting the quality of weed. However, changes in quality and potency may be experienced if the concentrate is exposed to humidity and air.

When you are using a dried bud, the first and most important thing to consider is the moisture content. Buds can be stored at higher temperatures, whereas concentrates can be easily stored at a cooler temperature.

Cannabis is made up of more than 200 different terpenes, which can also be degraded by different physical factors like humidity, air heat, and light. When the Cannabinoids and terpenes start to degrade, the weed's flavor, potency, and shelf life also change, leading to overall reduced quality.

 No matter what weed you use, you must Monitor the air, light, and temperature of the area where you have stored your weed. For short-term storage, go for 18 to 20 degrees Celsius; for long-term storage, place your weed in dark freezers at -20 degrees Celsius.
