whats the best way to store your weed? in a tupperware or some like that in a dry place?


How you store your cannabis is important because it's sensitive to numerous environmental factors.
Air, moisture, UV light, and heat can all degrade the quality of cannabis overtime.
Tupperware can work, but an airtight glass container is preferred.
Remember to keep your product safe. Store it away and out of sight and reach from children preferably in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.


Storing cannabis properly is important to maintain its potency and freshness.

Environmental Factors That Impact Cannabis Shelf-Life

  • Humidity (avoid moisture)
  • Temperature (avoid heat)
  • Air (limit contact by vacuum sealing if possible)
  • UV light (keep away from sunlight or store in amber glass)

It's generally recommended to store marijuana in an airtight container, such as a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. This helps to minimize exposure to air and moisture, which can degrade the quality of the cannabis over time. Additionally, it's important to store your marijuana in a cool, dark, and dry place to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

Excessive heat and even sunlight (UV) can also degrade the quality of cannabis over time.

Final Words

While a Tupperware container can work, glass jars are often preferred because they are less likely to retain odors and can provide a better seal. Remember to keep your marijuana away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures to maintain its quality for a longer period of time. If you can't keep your product out of sunlight consider using an amber glass container which helps block UV rays. To be safe, remember to always store your product safely out of the sight and reach of children
