Why We’re Never Smoking Old Cannabis, Again.
BECAUSE LIFE IS TOO PRECIOUS FOR DRY WEED AND DUSTY TRICHOMES.
It’s no surprise that the most unpredictable year of our lives has created a ripple effect of glorious “ah-ha moments” and total “wtfs”, respectively. With the uncertainty of tomorrow bringing in new appreciation for today, we find ourselves wanting to savor more of life’s pleasurable moments. While our society is very, very far from perfect, an unprecedented yet highly welcomed shift within the collective to protect, preserve and uplift each other in ways that’ve been deeply overlooked gives us a glimmer of hope for the future.
We are creating a rebellion based on daily affirmations, self-love, active listening, breaking generational curses, building empires, celebrating individuality and smoking our greens, all while trying not to implode in the process…Honey, the last thing we should have to worry about is the shelf-life of our cannabis.
For millennia humans have engaged with cannabis in a variety of ways. We’ve prayed to it, smoked it, hustled it, researched it; we’ve even transmuted its unique properties into new products customized for the 21st century. Still, there is an area of this cosmic relationship between nature and human that remains quite outdated; dare we say primitive.
WHY PROPER CANNABIS STORAGE MATTERS
Some of you reading this might be part of ziplock nation and that’s okay. You might also be thinking “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. We hear you. But the truth is the old-school ziplock baggie system, albeit nostalgic by trade, is actually doing you and your cannabis more harm than good.
Cannabis is a highly sensitive entheogen whose complex cannabinoid and terpene profiles can quickly deteriorate if not properly cared for. Both cannabinoids and terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis; they’re also the driving forces behind the different effects and potency among cultivars. Terpenes are the aromatic oils commonly found in nature, while cannabinoids are compounds such as THC, CBD, and CBN. Cannabinoids are a class of lipophilic molecules that interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), and terpenes are responsible for the diverse fragrances in flowers, spices, and some foods.
When all of these components communicate with the human endocannabinoid system, they create a biological homeostasis for the consumer. However, as cannabis is exposed to oxygen and light, these compounds begin to decay and lose their natural gifts. Not only can improper storage compromise the integrity of cannabis, it can also cause the flower to produce mold, which can be extremely harmful to the consumer if ingested.
