Ask a Stoner: Do Dispensary Bottles Keep Weed Fresh?

Ask a Stoner: Do Dispensary Bottles Keep Weed Fresh?
Westword

Dear Stoner: Does the plastic bottle a dispensary gives me keep my weed fresh? It takes me over a week to finish a couple grams, and it seems dry on the last day.
Christian

Dear Christian: Every regular user needs a nug jug. People who smoke their purchases in two days probably won't notice a huge difference in their buds by the end — even though there is one — but if cannabis sits in that plastic bottle for any longer, you’ll taste the dryness, and your throat will probably feel it, too. That's because those containers don't seal out all of the air. Just buy a Mason jar and some humidifier packets, as Colorado's climate makes our pot dry to begin with, and you’re good. No need to go overboard with a $25 jar from a head shop.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
