Storing Your Medical Cannabis Supply Many of the psychoactive and therapeutic effects of medical cannabis come from cannabinoids. These are chemical compounds that provide relief to a wide range of symptoms. One example is THC which is responsible for that “high,” and CBD, which does not result in psychoactive effects. When you store your cannabis correctly, you preserve the cannabinoids and other compounds.   What Happens with Poor Cannabis Storage? Medical cannabis also contains other compounds like terpenes that contribute to its effects. Terpenes give cannabis its distinct fragrance and colours, offering a wide range of health benefits. Terpenes rapidly degrade when exposed to air. Read on to learn some tips on ensuring a long shelf life for your products. This way, you can get the most your of your medical cannabis use.   Tips on Proper Cannabis Storage

  Importance of Proper Cannabis Storage When it comes to the marijuana flower, it mustn’t be exposed to air, light, moisture, and heat to prevent a decrease in its potency. Moisture exposure is of utmost concern as damp cannabis flower can develop mold and be dangerous for their health. Terpenes are very sensitive to heat and air exposure, so you might notice that cannabis loses its distinct aroma when it is left out too long.
