Storing cannabis flowers
To keep cannabis flowers fresh and preserve the THC levels store them in an air tight container, preferably in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight as UV rays degrade the cannabis. Mildew and mold thrive in a temperature of 25c (77f) to 30c (86f) avoid storing your cannabis near heaters, hot cupboards or hot appliances.
A container that creates a relative humidity of between 59- 62% is ideal for cannabis. This prevents mold and prevents the cannabis from drying out so it keeps its flavour, aroma and colour for longer.
THC turns to the cannabinoid CBN when exposed to light and air, CBN aids in sleep.
