Keep it safe and dry.

When it comes to smoking, storing your product can be a tricky task. We at your favorite online headshop can help! 

Variables, such as light and temperature, can 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. 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 on herbs and concentrates. The best place to store your products is in an airtight container inside the refrigerator.

Carefully prepared herbal or resin extracts are reasonably stable for 1 to 2 years if stored in the dark at room temperature, though it is important to avoid fluctuations in temperature.

Depending on the type of product, 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. There are silicone mats you can use to place concentrates on as well, but we recommend using a container with a lid to keep anything from falling and sticking to your concentrates.

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 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. Shop for storage containers for your stash here!
