This kind of preparation is practical, and you can simply take one of your pre-rolled joints wherever you are.
However, it is a fact that some people might have doubts on how to preserve a rolled joint. While there are numerous, apparently effective joint storage ideas, you need to adopt a way that keeps them fresh for as long as possible to protect the quality of your ground cannabis. If you want to maintain the perfect flavor and effects of your spliff, we will guide you through some of the best methods to preserve a rolled joint.
How to Preserve a Rolled Joint
What happens if you don't store your pre-rolled joint properly? Well, in most of the cases, what is gonna happen to a stale joint is that it will burn faster and surely not taste as good as it should. Moreover, your joint may hit a bit harsher because the cannabis inside has dried out.
What you do want to watch out for is any sort of mold in your joint. Leaving your pre-rolls on the desk, in a drawer, or in your pocket is not gonna protect them from damage. Cannabis rolled joints should ideally be stored in moderate temperatures, out of sunlight and in an environment with a relative humidity of between 59 – 63%.
Another reason to properly preserve a rolled joint is to maintain the terpenes and cannabinoids of your herb. If they are in frequent contact with air, they will eventually decrease their potency. As a result, you will most likely have a tasteless herb with a lower THC or CBD presence.
