Have you ever wondered what is the best material for your cannabis container? You may be thinking, "What's wrong with storing it in the package it came in?" We compared the most common cannabis storage containers which will give you several reasons to ditch the store bought containers or ziplock bags.
Cannabis containers made from plastic: Plastic is the most common packaging material most of us are familiar with. Cannabis is most commonly stored in store bought plastic containers or ziplock bags from the legacy market but are they the best option? The short answer is no. Did you know only 9% of plastic actually gets recycled? Not only is plastic bad for the environment, it could degrade your cannabis. Over time, the plastic will affect the taste of your products or can have a static charge that will attract the trichomes. Despite plastic convenience, it should only be used for short-term storage.
Cannabis containers made from glass: Glass is a much better alternative to plastic. It is environmentally friendly as it is highly recyclable and does not add any flavours to your herbs over time. The challenge with glass is that it still lets UV light in which is the single biggest factor in degrading cannabinoid content and terpenes of the flower. Glass cannabis containers are also not durable, they are easily broken and fragile.
Cannabis container made from metal: Metal containers made from stainless steel or aluminum like the Stori pods help you store cannabis in ideal conditions. Metal containers do not let light in, they are durable and environmentally friendly as aluminum is a highly recyclable material. Metal containers also do not give out any flavours or tastes to your cannabis flower allowing you to enjoy all the terpenes flavours.
So, it’s time to rethink the way you store your cannabis. Stop using plastic and glass jars and consider getting yourself a Stori - your herbs will thank you.
