When it comes to weed, there are two things that are always top of mind: how to save it and how to smoke it.
Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but preserving your bud is definitely important!
In this article, we're going to teach you three ways to make sure your weed lasts as long as possible.
Keep reading for tips on storing, smoking, and using the right marijuana pipe that will help you conserve your weed.
Use the Right Marijuana Pipe
Despite what you might have been told, the right pipe can actually conserve cannabis.
The next time you're looking to conserve your cannabis, consider using The Dart rather than a joint or blunt. You'll be surprised at how much difference it makes.
When it comes to pipes, there are a ton of different materials and styles from which to choose, but a metal marijuana pipe is a great choice.
Metal pipes are generally very durable, but they also tend to get very hot. The Dart is made from a durable anodized aluminum.
This makes them a good choice for those who like to take big hits, as it allows you to hold the pipe longer without burning your fingers.
They also come in a variety of sizes.
Keep Your Weed in an Airtight Container and Store Properly
Airtight containers are a must for proper weed storage. Not only will they keep air and moisture out, but they'll ensure your weed stays fresh longer with the best of them.
If you have a jar handy, it might be an option. Most importantly, here's what not to do: Never store your cannabis in plastic bags or containers.
While they may be airtight, the lack of breathability will cause your weed to rot and mildew.
Store Cannabis in the Right Temperature
Now that you know how to store your cannabis properly, we'll give you a few tips on the best way to store it.
The ideal storage temperature for weed is below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or 21 degrees Celsius.
The darkness and cool temperature prevent moisture from changing the integrity of your flower and stop mold or mildew, which love light and warmth, from growing.
Storing Your Weed in a Refrigerator
Many people store fully cured weed inside their refrigerator with great success.
If you're using a traditional refrigerator, be sure it's in a tightly sealed plastic bag to keep out any moisture.
A great trick is to use a vacuum sealer on your weed when you store it inside your refrigerator.
Just make sure not to suck all the air out, or you will suffocate and dehydrate your flower.
Another option is using a food saver to suck all the air out of a storage container with a tight seal.
A lot of connoisseurs swear by this method, but it will also diminish the flavor and aroma in your weed.
Storing Your Weed in a Freezer
When properly stored, cannabis can last for years when kept inside a freezer. There are some important factors to keep in mind, though.
If you're going to store your weed in a freezer, make sure it's tightly sealed and placed inside a plastic bag.
After all, you don't want frostbite. In addition, be sure the temperature stays below 0°F (-18°C).
Any colder than that could cause THC to crystallize, which will make your weed less potent.
Make sure to check the temperature inside of your freezer on occasion. If you see build-up of ice crystals, it's time for some more airtight storage containers.
Above all else, remember that the best weed storage method is cool and dark; this means staying away from windows or anything that exposes your weed to sunlight.
Let's keep our weed fresher, longer!
Smoke Less with Your Marijuana Pipe
Smoking less can help you conserve your weed long term. When we smoke, we sacrifice a little bit of weed for each hit we take.
Burning up the sticky icky that is left over after each hit can weaken and destroy the marijuana's physical structure and potency, which means you will rob yourself of the effects and need more weed to get high.
Those who smoke more often than others will be able to take larger hits because they have built up their receptor sites to be able to handle the high levels of THC.
This is why some people can smoke a lot and not get as high as others, they don't have the same tolerance level.
Which means you should be able to conserve your stash better by smoking less if this applies to you.
When you smoke less, your body can create more of its own endocannabinoids which in turn will lead you to want to take less hits and in turn smoke less.
As with many other things, practice makes perfect, if you are used to smoking a lot then it will take some time for your body to adjust to this new style of smoking cannabis (if you do not want to go through the process of quitting smoking all together, then there are other ways to smoke less).
Start by reducing the size of your hits and then eventually work your way down to taking just one hit at a time.
You may find that you don't even need a whole joint or blunt to get high, using a marijuana pipe that uses less weed will in turn help you conserve your weed longer.
Smoke High-Quality Weed to Consume Less
It's common knowledge that smoking high-quality cannabis is preferable to smoking low-grade, substandard weed. If you can afford to spend a little more on high-quality flower from a reputable source, the potency may encourage you to consume less.
Final Thoughts on How to Save Weed
There are a few simple things you can do to make your pot smoking experience more enjoyable and less wasteful.
One of the most important steps is using marijuana pipes that will allow you to smoke less.
The right type of pipe, like The Dart, has been designed specifically for this purpose- saving both money and reducing waste.
Another key step in preserving cannabis is taking care to not overindulge or get too high while enjoying it!
You should also take precautions when storing weed so it doesn't spoil if left out in an open area for example on top of furniture where pets might be able to reach them.
Remembering these tips won't just save money and weed but create a better-quality experience overall.
