    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 them fresh by putting them in a jar with a good seal

    I like that. That comes from a Bad Brain song.

    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. :D

    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! :smokin:

    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? :confused:

    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.

    Reiteration ftw.

    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. ;)

    when weed gets too dry, does it get less potent?? what's the big deal.

    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.
