Packaging and Storage

Storing cannabis in an airtight environment will preserve aroma, taste, and potency. Use a vacuum sealer to evacuate air in glass jars. Inexpensive vacuum sealers are available in the canning section of grocery and variety stores. Growers report that containers sealed with inexpensive vacuum sealers lose the vacuum after a few days. More expensive vacuum sealers such as the one available at www.deni.com_work much better. When properly vacuum-packed, buds will stay as fresh the day they were sealed in the airtight jar.

Vacuum seal the jar, and place it in the refrigerator for storage. Leave it in the refrigerator or a cool, dark, dry place for a month or longer. The taste and potency will be tops! Refrigeration slows decomposition, but, remember, refrigerators have a high humidity level, so the container must be sealed airtight, I just checked the relative humidity and temperature in my refrigera-tor-65 percent relative humidity and 5°C (40°F). Do not place it in the freezer. Freezing draws moisture to the surface of buds, which can harm resin glands on the surface.

Place sealed containers in a cool, dry, dark place. Some growers prefer to keep airtight, sealed containers in the refrigerator, if the seal is not airtight, the low temperature in the refrigerator creates a condition of high humidity. Dry huds stored in a container that is not airtight attract moisture in the high-humidity environment. Before long, the buds are so moist that they must be dried again.

cure.

Remove the lid of a jar two or three times a day to allow moisture to escape during the curing process.
Curing jars with a rubber seal keep the environment inside airtight.

Buds are bagged alter weighing.

Once in place, air is removed and the bag of buds is hermetically scaled.

Bagged buds are then put into the vacuum/sealing machine.

The end result is a compact, airtight bag of buds.

Once in place, air is removed and the bag of buds is hermetically scaled.
