Storing Weed = Mason Jar Question
    #5255587 - 02/02/06 04:28 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

I've got a question about mason jars. Even though they're air tight 100%, there's still going to be alot of air space left (unless i have alot of weed at some point) and my question is this.

If I'm usually storing about a quarter of an ounce, will it matter if i use a 1litre mason jar instead of a 500ml? Will the extra bit of air in there dry out the weed?

yes, you want some air in there.

Heres what you do:

put your bud in and close the jar.
Open it once a day for 20 minutes or so and close it again.

and so on and so forth


This is a method called curing, and it will make your bud smell, taste, and smoke much, much better. Only exception being if you're bud has already been properly cured, which most hasnt. Unless you're getting some dank home grown shit, its most likely not cured fully.

the air dries out the outside of the bud. When you close it, it will start to absorb moisture from the inside of the bud. Its done when the bud is completely, evenly dried.

Proper curing takes atleast 3-4 weeks, though, before you notice a difference.

Let it cure for two months and you will love your bud soooo much more than when you put it in :smile:

ok that sounds cool. i've only got like a quarter on me though most of the time, i guess ill just pickup a 1litre, and open it once a day like you said. it's good weed, but probably not fully cured.

you're sure this won't just dry out the weed if it's already been somewhat cured and eventually found its way to me?

afoaf does the following and it works amazing:

.  store the weed in mason jars
.  put an orange slice in there.
.  put it in the fridge


his weed is always fresh and new and oh so smelly :smile:

Careful with the orange peels though, my dad used to do that and he forgot one of his tins and ended up with some real white buds and not from the trich, the mold :confused:

yeah, at most i keep the peel in for a weekend. That'll get them veryyyy moist, to the point where a joint usually wont stay lit.


Usually i keep it in over night and that does the trick.

Citrus peels are known to mess up your funk though. A peice of potatoes almost completely water and a much better solution. Rehydrating weed brings out the aroma. Then you snip it up and the lovely, delicious trichomes skeet  and bust a nut all over your fingers and scissors. Mmmm, the aroma! Don't want to fuck around with that :smile:

I exclusively store my weed in mason jars. The air curing method's been tried, tested and true. I "burp" my jars for around 5 minutes a day, then I'll leave the lit sitting on top while I play with my bud and wonder which one I'm going to snip up. After a few weeks or months your bud turns into something else. Wow. Delicious. The bud I have now is thankfully homegrown, properly dried and cured DANK. I'm letting that stuff cure right now, but can't help but pinch nuggets. In a month or so I'll have some virgin nuggies to smoke down. Two months is probably as long as I've cured bud without touching a single nugget of the same strain. Incredible!

Store weed in a mason jar. Then, open and take big whiffs. Whenever you want, and all the time. Store weed for later sniffings. Look at the weed in the jar then open and let it permeate the room. Do it as often as you like. :bigweed:

ok, sounds great. one question though - why does my chron dry out in ziplocs so fast? after having it for about a week its dry as hell. just because there's a little bit of air flow?

Because those plastic bags are not completely airtight.. they are porous.
