    Best way to keep weed fresh?

    whats up people, i recently picked up a qp of blueberry (really stinky stink)and a qp of haze...so now i got a shitload of weed that i gotta keep from drying out. right now they are just in those big ziplock freezer bags. should i put the bud in the big ziplock in like a mason/sause jar? i got a couple of those jars with a lid that goes on top and thne a gasket that screw around it. i wouldnt really call it airtight but thats all i really got.

    any ideas on how to preserve my beautiful bud?

    I believe their called mason jars. Made out of glass, metal clamp on the lid to close it and a plastic/rubber seal around the rim? If thats what you got then your set. That much bud will dry out in those baggies unless you keep them in a fridge or even a mini-fridge.

    Try the pasta sauce aisle at your local grocery store - have yourself a nice spaghetti dinner with the sauce and re-use the jar for a better purpose. When you fill the jar, put a thin slice of apple on top - it keeps the weed from drying out and adds a very nice flavor to it as well.

    They do the same thing to age/store wine except they dip or soak (whichever you prefer) the corks in wax in order to create an even better seal. Works so well they still use that method to this day. You should melt down a candle and hit it up

    Grocery store should stock mason jars. Are you planning on sharing some shots and thoughts of this recent acquisition as you've done in the past?

    for large amounts I use the ziplock double seal freezer bags, they have 2 layers of plastic to keep it super fresh and they come in big bags my stuff always comes in those bags in a coffee can from a long drive and is always still fresh **Puff Puff Pass**
    dont blame your problems or stupidity on the weed... thats why its illegal SWED

    I stick to the old fashoned glass jar method.. For that large bag of blueberry get a large glass cookie jar which should be able to hold it all.. and for the Haze do the same thing unless you dont want to mix the haze up. This way you dont have a ton of mason jars taking up a lot of space you know?

    I store mine in a glass jar with a screw on lid and top. got it at the grocery store. 4 dollars for 12 of them. I keep that jar, electrical taped all the way so theres no light degrading the bud and in my closet.
    I've never heard that but it could be true. I've merely heard of dealers and people with mad buds keepin them in the fridge. I knew this one kid who had two full size fridges packed with nug. Furthering SilentSmoke's concerns I would not store in the freezer, that sounds like it would cause problems.

    Thrift store or 2nd hand store usually has them.(jars) Best is using one of those vacuum pack gadgets with different size freezer rolls that can be cut to size. Then keep in freezer. (and send me some)

    Again I'd be careful with the freezer but that did remind me of those ziploc freezer bag things. There super thick and you seal them with something similar to a 3 hole punch. Perfect air tight seal. I imagine they come in different sizes.

    Do NOT store buds in bags. The static rips off the trichome heads and doesn't allow the bud to breath whatsoever. Mason jars are the best way to go. Nice nuggage by the way, that haze looks like it'd be quite discombobulating.
