Yes, you can freeze your cannabis to help extend its shelf life, but it’s important to do it correctly to preserve the quality. While it is possible to freeze cannabis for long-term storage, it is generally not recommended due to the risk of trichome damage, which can affect potency and flavor. Instead, a better option for preserving the quality of your cannabis is to store it in airtight mason jars. These jars help maintain a stable environment, keeping out air and moisture, which are the main culprits in cannabis degradation.

Here are a few tips for storing cannabis in mason jars:

  1. Keep It Cool and Dark: Store your mason jars in a cool, dark place such as a cupboard or a drawer. Light and heat can degrade the cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis.
  2. Control Humidity: Ideally, keep the relative humidity inside the jars between 59% and 63%. You can use humidity packs to maintain these levels, which helps prevent the cannabis from drying out or becoming too moist, which could lead to mold.
  3. Limit Air Exposure: Every time you open the jar, you expose the cannabis to fresh air, which can speed up degradation. Try to open the jar only when necessary, and consider storing larger quantities in multiple small jars to minimize exposure.

Storing cannabis in airtight mason jars helps preserve its freshness, potency, and aromatic profile much more effectively than freezing. For additional tips and details on the best practices for cannabis storage, you might find valuable insights in our comprehensive guide to storing.
