The Best Way to Store Weed: And the Science Behind it

Smoking dried up, brittle buds that crumble in your fingertips blows. The weed burns way too fast, and I think we can all agree that it tastes nowhere near as good as a sweet n juicy, sticky bud.

Studies have shown that “Exposure to light (not direct sunlight) was shown to be the greatest single factor in loss of cannabinoids.” To be specific, it’s the UV (Ultraviolet) rays that do the damage. This same study showed us that air oxidation led to massive decomposition. However, when oxidized in the dark, it resulted in an increase in CBN (cannabinol). CBN, though, is a weak psychoactive by nature, so what you are essentially doing is trading THC for CBN–which, will just make you sleepy.
