When it comes to smoking you typically have a product you are storing for your use and finding the best method to store that product can be a tricky task. Variables, such as light and temperature, can all affect the quality of the products you have, and having the proper container will help keep things fresh. Depending on the product you have to store there are a multitude of containers available for you to choose from. No matter if you are storing concentrates, dry herbs or even your water pipe, you can find a container to suit your needs. Never stress again if your dry herbs seem to be drying out or are too moist, there are some amazing containers that work to preserve your product!
The variables of light, temperature, and air all have different effects and in particular sunlight and air are the most important variables to combat! The best place to store your products is in an airtight container inside the refrigerator. The effect of temperature, up to 20 degrees is insignificant but air oxidation does lead to significant losses in quality. The largest losses that can occur are from exposure to air and these losses can be greatly reduced if care is taken by using well-closed containers. It is concluded that carefully prepared herbal or resin extracts are reasonably stable for 1 to 2 years if stored in the dark at room temperature, it is important to avoid fluctuations in temperature.
Depending on the type of product you have you will need a different type of container for each. Concentrates are best in a silicone container because they do not stick to these containers. Whether you have an oily or more consistent stable concentrate you are better off with a silicone container for concentrates. There are mats you can use to place concentrates on as well, but I recommend using a container with a lid to keep anything from falling and sticking to your concentrates. There are varieties of styles of silicone containers, and you are sure to find one that suits your needs!
Dry herbs need to be stored more carefully in order to be preserved properly. Finding a good container to store dry herbs for an extended period of time can be very frustrating. One of the older more common methods to store your dry herbs is in an airtight mason jar that is tinted, the tint keeps light from entering the jar and degrading your product. Nowadays we are seeing containers specifically designed to restore and maintain your products at the optimal humidity as well as keep light out. Dry herbs as well as concentrates are stored best in your refrigerator, and avoiding fluctuations in temperature is very important as well.
Outside of containers to maintain the quality of your products, there are a multitude of containers that can help you keep your products hidden and also can contain the smell of your product. Some of the more discreet containers have false bottoms or appear to be a bottle of soda or water! There are even some waterproof containers out there if you expect to be getting wet! So whatever your needs may be you better believe there is a container out there to meet those needs!
