3 Tips on Preventing Bud Rot in Your Pot

Are you tired of smoking low-quality weed? Do you have some extra pot and want to keep it fresh for a long time? Below are some tips that will help you store cannabis properly and prevent bud rot.

1. Check Testing Labels

The best way to make sure you are using quality weed is to purchase only laboratory-tested products. Many states have already established special testing requirements for cannabis strains and products. If you are choosing marijuana in a local dispensary, a budtender should be ready to tell you the testing results of all strains available on the shelves.

2. Store Your Weed Properly

Mold usually develops in case there is extra moisture in the place where cannabis is stored. It is better to keep the herb in dry and cool conditions, away from direct sunlight. It will be great to limit your weed’s exposure to oxygen: too much air can significantly reduce its potency.

If you live in a humid climate, you may add a food-grade desiccant package into your storage container. Still hesitate which container to choose? Glass jars, vacuum sealing, and CVault storage containers are your best options.

3. Keep Your Cannabis Accessories Clean

Keeping smoking devices clean and dry is the easiest way to prevent mold and the corresponding infections. Make sure your bong, bubbler or any other water-based device is also stored properly.

Moreover, smoking accessories that are exposed to condensation can sometimes be at risk of growing molds and mildews.
