Cannabis consumption has been legalized and become increasingly popular in many states over the last few years, for medical or recreational purposes (or both). This is hardly surprising, given that it is known to induce relaxation and, according to some studies, may help combat anxiety and depression. However, if you decide to use marijuana in plant form, it’s important to know how to properly store your pre-rolled joints in order to keep them fresh.
Ways To Keep Pre-Rolled Joints Fresh
There are some very creative ways to ensure pre-rolled cannabis joints remain fresh; however, there are three different methods for doing this that are highly effective.
Storing In A Mason Jar
Although glass mason jars are typically utilized for storing dried flower buds or things such as vegetables and baking materials, they can also be used to keep cannabis joints fresh. This is a particularly excellent option if you have a large number of joints that you would like to store for a certain amount of time. You can even insert moisture absorbing packets into the jar as an additional way to ensure your rolls do not become stale or, worse yet, get covered in mold.
According to research from the United Nations’ Office on Drugs and Crime, cannabis loses approximately 16% of its THC (the primary psychoactive compound found in the plant) after just one year. As time goes on, the percentage of THC lost becomes progressively higher, up to 41% lost after four years.
Using Empty Cigar Tubes
A cigar tube offers an airtight seal that shields joints from damage and moisture. Depending on the size of the tube, you may even be able to insert multiple joints into it. As long as you have no issue with your joints carrying a cigar scent, this is a perfect storage option to consider. Portable humidors, which are some of the most sophisticated types of cigar tubes due to their ability to keep cigars humidified even whilst traveling, can serve as particularly effective storage containers. With these tubes, you will likely not need to worry about moisture levels.
Enjoy Them Now!
This is perhaps the most evident way to ensure your cannabis rolls stay fresh. If your lungs have the tolerance for several marijuana joints within a short timespan, smoke them now. That way, you won’t need to worry about finding a place to store them. All you have to do is make sure you are consuming cannabis in a legal and safe location so that you avoid costly consequences. Also, be sure to regularly eat food, drink water and if at all possible, have another person with you when you smoke your joints so that there is someone to help you in the event that you feel mentally or physically unwell.
Ultimately, you should remember that if marijuana feels spongy or crumbles, this is a sign that it is likely not fresh. If you notice mold on your joints (e.g. fuzzy spots), be sure to throw them out because moldy cannabis can potentially lead to minor health issues such as vomiting, nausea, and coughing, especially among people with weak immune systems.
Benefits Of Pre-Rolled Joints
One notable benefit of pre-rolled cannabis joints relates to the simple fact that they look neater and are thus easier to hand off to another person or transport. Additionally, pre-rolled joints typically offer greater consistency than, for instance, a bowl or a bong, which often needs to be cleaned. Finally, pre-rolled joints can also sometimes be relatively more inexpensive than other hemp products.
