Does Weed Go Bad?

Does weed go bad? 

When stored  properly dried, keeping it in a sealed container away from heat, moisture, and sunlight it should stay fresh and potent for up to a year.

Weed doesnt go bad the way milk does, but it can deffinitely be"off" and go moldy.

Unless you have underlying health conditions, bad weed likely will not lead to a serious health issue but bad weed may affect the following;

  • inhaling moldy weed may contain bcteria or fungi that can cause health issues.
  • aroma and potency
  • texture and taste changes
  • may smell musty
  • may lead to nausea, vomiting and caughing
  • may feel spongy and crumbly


Best ways to store your flowers and keep them potent:

  1. Light, humidity and oxygen can mess with cannabis and affect its potential
  2. Humidity - best kept at 59-60 % humidity with atemperature  of 25 celsius to avoid your weed going to dry or too wet
  3. Storage, choose a tight glass container like a mason jar -they limit oxygen exposure unlike plastic bags and containers which affect the potency
  4. Keep it in the dark, cool, dry place- direct sunlight causes cannabis to break down and on the other hand keeping it in the freezer or fridge may break off the trichomes and loose its potency
