How long can cannabis be stored?

The shelf life of cannabis can vary depending on several factors, such as the quality of the product, how it was stored, and the type of cannabis. Generally, cannabis can be stored for up to six months to a year without significant degradation in quality.

However, improper storage can cause cannabis to turn bad much sooner. Exposure to light, heat, and air can cause the THC and other cannabinoids in cannabis to break down, resulting in a loss of potency and flavor. Additionally, if cannabis is not stored in an airtight container, it can absorb moisture, which can cause mold and mildew to grow.

Using proper storage methods, such as storing cannabis in an airtight container in a cool, dark place with humidity control, can help extend its shelf life. It's also important to regularly check your stored cannabis for signs of mold or mildew, as these can cause health issues if ingested.

Overall, it's best to consume cannabis as soon as possible after purchasing it to ensure the highest quality experience. If stored properly, however, cannabis can remain enjoyable for several months to a year.
