In this article, we are going to look at smell proof bags that we can both afford and recycle. For years growers have been using the good old mason jar, and I must say that the mason jar is excellent for cured buds, but it’s not so convenient if you are on the move.

They are made of glass, so it’s not a good idea to put one into your coat pocket. Ziplock bags are suitable and waterproof, but they still leave you smelling skunky, and that is not good for traveling. Since cannabis is now legal and we have dispensaries popping up all over the map, we not only want smell-proof, but we also want to be eco-friendly. Luckily, we are here to help you with that by offering up this helpful list of trusted makers and manufacturers of weed storage bags.

How long does weed last?

So, you may be asking how long does your weed last. Many factors play a role, such as storage if the cannabis is wet is in an airtight container or bag. Ideally, you should use all your marijuana within about six months because, after that, it starts to lose its potency, and the terpenes begin to dissipate.

Some say if you store your buds are in an airtight jar like a mason jar it preserves them for longer than six months, but as far as freshness is concerned you can find all kinds of tips and tricks on the internet for easy and effective storage, but who really has cannabis flowers last that long without being a grower? Either way, I say you should investigate and experiment with several of the options out there to find the best one for you.
