Best long term storage

What's the best way to keep buds potent and smokable for long term...say two years?
Is there a way to make a smokeable concentrate that will keep for long term? Thereby reducing storage woes?

I have pot that is 2 and 3 years old and it's like new. I use 1/2 gallon Ball jars and I vacuum seal them.


In the past, I have used the same jars without vacuum sealing and the vacuum sealer definitely helps a lot.

It just occurred to me that keeping the bug in a vac sealed jar will also pull the moisture from the interior of the buds, as the jar equalizes inside. Maybe flood the jar somehow with N2 before putting on the lid too.

I heard freezer is bad. Fridge is better. Something about freezer fracturing chlorophyll cells. Not 100% sure on that but, somehow recall hearing that.

here is an interesting article by Ed Rosenthal

However, even in deep freeze THC deteriorates, at nearly 4% a year. In deep freeze (below 0°F) deterioration slows further. At refrigerator temperatures THC deteriorates at the rate of about 5.4% a year. A freezer is best for long-term storage; a refrigerator is good for protecting terpenes in the short term.

Would vacuum sealing the buds without jars be the same? I'm betting no?

@ElGato OK, I'll defer to Ed on the freezer thing. I was incorrect. Sorry about that.

@Im'One Vacuum sealing works in bags too but it crushes the buds..... flat flat FLAT. LOL

@JerryGarcia I use a standard vacuum bag sealer that had an attachment port. I bought this on Amazon as the attachment....
