Storing my weed

Post by johnny_144 » Wed Oct 12, 2011 8:33 pm

First post here^^
So,i am really new to smoking pot i'm about to get some weed,around an eight(3.5 gramms if i'm right) and i am not sure on how to store it. As shown in the pictures i got plenty of ziplock bags and a couple of jars,although i am not sure whether they are airtight or not. What should i do with the materials i already have to store it for a couple of weeks. and what if i wanted to store it for 2-3 months,would anything change?

As airtight a jar as you have on hand. Nothing will change other than natural decarboxylation/isomerization. It'll just get more potent unless it's already old weed.

It will get drier and less tasty, more harsh. Since you're new, I doubt you would tell much difference.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

throw the weed you plan on keeping for longer periods in the glass jar.
weed you plan on smoking that day, store in something else....like a plastic baggie or get a nice hard plastic or metal tin, so you can also keep your busted weed in it aswell.

I just keep my ground weed in my grinder. Nothing leaves the jars otherwise.

Some of us don't buy less than an ounce at a time. You going to smoke a full ounce every day?

Yeah, well the original post is about storing an 8th, which will last me 3 days tops. You can pretty much leaving it sitting out on your desk who cares.

I'm pretty positive our new buddy here is under 18 and lives with his parents. In which case definitely don't store your weed bro, you're just asking to get caught. You and your buddies go buy a gram or two and smoke it all that night, don't bring it home for mom and pops to find. It will most likely happen eventually.

Yeah but the OP is new to smoking. New smokers tend to have an extremely low tolerance. That eighth could last him quite some time.

Though I did just remember you also have a ridiculously low tolerance.

Indeed I do, I also have tons of free time and no parents snooping, so I can get high off of a few hits every hour or so, until it's gone. Just because I have a tolerance doesn't mean I can't keep pushing that button until the treats stop coming out.

Ineed i am under 18 and live with my parents although that's not such a big deal since they almost never search my room and even if they do i got some good places to hide cigarretes and weed. And in case i buy an eight it might take me a couple of weeks to smoke it because i got limited opportunities to smoke and need to plan it a day or so ahead(parents,siblings) but i also dont want to smoke every day...If i store weed for about a month in a ziplock bag then in the pink jar and in a box or a drawer with no light will it get dry/tasteless/harsh?And what if i open it every couple of days to take some to smoke?will it make it drier ?

P.S. What is tolerance?

If you store it in a ziplock only, not only will the smell seep out through the plastic, but it will get dryer and lose flavour and smell by the day.

Why would you put a ziplock in a jar? That seems pointless.

Tolerance is exactly as the term implies; you become resistant to the effects of cannabis the more you smoke it.
