    Is there an actual way for it to go bad, aside from molding? How long does it take before it gets too dry?

    Properly stored it can last for months if not years.

    really? i was under the impression that the thc breaks down rapidly, so i have always used my buds w/in 2 or 3 weeks after buying.

    As Perp pointed out, "Properly stored" is the key. Many times if I get a really good strain I'll save a few grams for later. What I do is vacuum pack it in one of those seal-a-meal things. I've had weed in those for up to two years and it's still as potent as the day I bought it.

    Just get some air tight jars, that works the best for storing weed.

    Ive never really bought large ammounts of weed, so I just store it in empty medicine bottles.

    I've found weed that was months old, and it was still good, just harsh.

    I've never had weed long enough for it to go bad, but I know you can put it in a heavy duty ziploc and freeze it.

    Yep, air-tight jars. They conceal the smell, too. The idea for the vaccuum packed seal-a-meal things is a really good idea too. I've thought about doing that, but I don't have one of those things. Air is Cannabis' worst enemy. Well, maybe not the worst, but air is what causes it to dry out and get moldy. If you take most of the air out of the container, and seal it air-tight, it's going to last a hell of a lot longer.

    I wouldn't know either. If there's bud around I'll be smoking it! :Rasta:

    Mine is usually gone within a month of purchase, and I store it in a airtight canister that was made for flour.

    I have mine in a ziplock bag inside a sealed cigar box. Would it be better to take it out of the bag and just leave it open in the box?

    Noooo lol . Definately keep it inside the bag as well because your bud will stay the freshest when it's exposed to as little air as possible... Unless it's one of those expensive cigar boxes that seals completely shut and you can control the humidity and temp. of the box's interior... that might be ok.

    By keeping it in the bag, you will also minimize loss of trichs and whatnot.

    I never had bud go bad on me. Its just not possible , The bud will always be long long gone before i ever goes bad. So heres my advice dont leave weed laying around for 3 weeks!!! I just dont know how u do that... It will be so tempting to smoke it if i just am looking at it all day lol.

    you can store bud for up to a year. i read in hightimes that bud can be stored for up to a year with the same potency if it is remained FROZEN and VACUUM SEALED. you might be able to stretch it a bit more, but then the potency will slowly decrease.
     
  17. even if it gets too dry, there's ways of re-adding moisture..

    i was wondering what the best temperature and humidity is for storing weed. i have it in a mason jar

    A dark, cool place is best. Humidity in the storage room, is not a major factor, if the weed was ready to go in the jar. 50% is ideal.
