    Keeping your buds moist

    How do you keep your buds soft and moist. My buds dry out with a quickness, is it something you really cant protect against? Buds are stored in a small pastic tubawear containier with lid. Does temp matter? Cold dry them out quicker?

    Keep it in a jar (mason jar or the like), preferrably glass with a good seal, like nik said. If you want to add a little moisture, you can put a small piece of fruit or vegetable in the jar. Try not to let the food touch the bud, but it will give it some moisture...and possibly some flavor, so you may want to try it with a lemon peel or orange peel. You can do this before it dries out or after.

    That's just what I would do.

    That's a nice idea actually, bit I'd be a lil' worried about the fruit absorbing anything from the bud. Is that anything worth worrying about?

    No, you shouldn't worry about the fruit absorbing THC or anything from the bud. It won't absorb the moisture, because the moisture will travel from the area of more moisture (concentration) to the area of least moisture (concentration)...yay for Osmosis.

    On the other hand, if you want to DRY your buds out using that method, you would put something in with them that has a lower moisture content than the buds (i.e. dry silica or something)

    Sorry, chisme, that wouldn't really help. It is too much moisture applied externally. It would most likely just make them mushy and wet. You have to let the bud absorb the moisture slowly.

    Also, when you add moisture to an enclosed area, always beware of MOLD!

    Happy toking!

    To keep buds fresh and delicious, simply store them in an airtight container.

    I use small jam jars that have the red seal along the top of it. I keep my buds in there for months and they still stay fresh. Just open the jar every few days to check if no mold is forming. If you store the buds when they're too moist, then you risk mold.

    If you want to add mositure back itno your buds, I used to slice up a raw potato and place a few slices in a baggy with the buds. They dryest buds became moist after about 6-8 hours. Avoid letting the potato of whatever touch the buds though.

    Take care.

    Errr...isn't that pretty much what I said?

    Well, I guess I didn't mention the 6-8 hours part...or the red seals...?

    Oh well. The more, the merrier. I think I read somewhere that you are supposed to hear/read/see something at least 3 times for it to register in your long-term memory.

    Hey, I think if you put sliced fruit in with your buds they should be moist again in 6-8 hours. I think I hear oranges or potatos should work.


    Not sure where I heard that though.

    like the rest said its all about getting a nice glass jar or atleast something with an air tight seal. some options are picking up a mason jar (something like this), 420 jars (personally these are my favorites) or maybe a Tight Pac (cheap and easy but ive never used one cuz personally i like glass much more)

    hope that helps a little

    Glass jars are too big in my case,
    my weed is stored in a bottle that it's a bottle.

    they are pretty tight but my stuff is starting to dry out, if I put a drop of water in the bottle that doesn't have the weed, will that moisten it??

    Just use a fruit peel. I personally use banana peels but orange or any other peel will work too. I have also heard of people using a little chunk of a carrot and celery. Just be creative.

    I heard that if you put some orange peel in a sealed container with your weed it helps to keep it moist.

    Dry Nuggs

    I agree with 40oz that it get crumbley and burns fast but IMO it's a bit more harsh as well. For some reason I feel like I get blasted fast as well when it's dry but it does go a bit faster.

    Paper Works !

    A simpler solution is to take a very small wadded up ball of Paper Towel/Napkin/Toilet Paper, wet it under the faucet, then squeeze out the excess water. Take this wet ball and add it to your stash bag or stick it on the lid of your stash container (the wet paper will help it to stick to the lid). When the small pea sized ball becomes dry again, repeat ...

    I saw this on youtube... Take a leaf of lettuce and place on top of your buds. Seal them tightly inside the jar and you'll keep their moisture. Can even revive really dry buds.
