I always find pieces of hash from a couple years back and smoke um. They get me higher then the fresh hash it seems like. These aren't stored properly either, they will be sitting in a drawer or in a pile of old shake. Just my experience.

If I were going to store any kind of marijuana product long term it would be in a vacuum sealed jar in the refrigerator or freezer.

I think the only way you're going to get much better than that is by doing a nitrogen purge or some other commercial-grade solution.

Hmmm I wonder what the best humidity level would be for the inside of a ball jar or c vault almost filled with dry sift? Boveda has already decided it's (62?) for flower, would dry sift be same/more/less*
I'm scratching my head, I don't wanna sound like a fool, but trichs have a water content? Or no . do the (natural) waxes lose moisture? Or no. I know they are not water soluble, but do they themselves have an accepted moisture content?

Would I be better off vacuum sealing my trim and storing it in the freezer, then making batches of Matt Rize style ice wax as I use them up?

Also, what about edibles? What if I use the ice wax to make lollipops or candycanes?

Thanks for the knowledge.

I think any type of extract is going to handle long term storage better than any type of raw product.

oh by the way if it is shatter, it is not fully purged. there is a lot of butane in there still. shatter looks cool but is not purged right.

Hey bro i would speak with Grey Wolf to get the facts, im no expert but i cant believe what your saying with regards to the shatter being a direct and definitive sign that butane is still present....im sure it is often the case but not always.

In my experience with extracts...

Yes, the trichome heads get ruptured. But the resin is a body that is compressed. The exterior of the block is exposed to oxygen and UV radiation. But the interior of the block is protected from it. Kind of like the way that silver oxidizes... The outer surface of the silver does oxidize, but that oxidization protects it. In my belief Hash and oil can stay in a freezer for a long time, years, without substantial degradation. Buds on the other hand, their trichomes are exposed and can degrade faster. I never leave a quantity of bud out or in light because of this. I am not fond of Clear Jars because of the UV degradation. If in a clear jar I like to put it in a place that is dark. I just take out what I need. Weed degradation is pretty fast.

Thanks for the thread.

Quick question- Anyone know if Co2 oil is pretty stable or can turn bad or rancid? And if so, how would I know?

I have a gram of GDP Co2 oil that I've kept more or less at room temp for quite a few months. I opened it recently and noticed a bubbly or foam-like "head" at the top. It did not look like mold, just some froth(if you will) at the top. I tried it, had solid GDP effects and I didn't get sick or notice a bad flavor.

The Tetra Labs gold turn darker and eventually amber although the amber I have seen happen in an open cap. The darker color is happening in new caps in the containers. They are defnitely darker. I do not know if the quality/potency is changed at all.

Perhaps a rep from Tetra Labs if reading will comment?

I'll post images but I may not have gotten closeups good enough to show how golden honey they were and now. Not sure if I have it saved somewhere but will look.

Anyone else have this, er, change ( not sure if it's an issue yet, again would someone from Tetra Labs please comment? ) with not just Tetra but other light colored oils?
