However, there are certain storage rules that apply to all types of cannabis edibles. Here is a close look at the best ways to store edibles.
Under the correct conditions, cannabis-infused goods such as gummies, chocolate, brownies, and root beer may be stored for long periods of time. However, the exact amount of time for which your treats will stay fresh largely depends on the type of product and the storage method you choose. Here are four of the most popular ways of storing cannabis edibles:
In general, edibles (and cannabis-infused cooking oils) can best be kept fresh in the fridge. This is especially true of those that contain sugar, oil, or flour. If you have purchased a cannabis edible product, you can check the “best before” date on the package label to get a sense of how long it will remain fresh. Cannabutter may be stored in the freezer or fridge in a glass container.

If you are new to cannabis and/or prefer not to smoke, edibles are an excellent alternative. Our edibles — which include fruit-flavored chewables, chocolate, and root beer — are made using safe levels of THC, which is infused into either cannabutter or canna-oil for baked products. For liquid edibles, tinctures or drops of cannabis extracts are placed in the drinks. The effects of edibles have a more delayed reaction compared to joints; the “high” sensation may take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes to become apparent. In any case, we always recommend beginning with the lowest recommended dose.
