Delta-8 THC has a longer shelf life than other cannabinoids. However, you should still keep certain things in mind to ensure that your Delta-8 product remains fresh and potent for as long as possible. Consider factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity to ensure that your D8 is always fresh.
It’s worth taking a few easy steps to store your D8 in the best possible environment to retain its potency. Here’s a guide to storing Delta-8 so that you can enjoy the highest-quality product.
WHY IS THE STORAGE OF DELTA-8 IMPORTANT?
Delta-8 THC has a shelf life of up to two years. It’s crucial to store the product properly to ensure you always have the freshest possible product. Improperly stored Delta-8 products can lose their flavor and potency due to exposure to elements that may cause cannabinoid degradation and a loss of effectiveness.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T STORE DELTA-8 PROPERLY?
Often, you’ll hear people say that their Delta-8 has “gone bad.” This does not mean the product is spoiled and won’t make anyone sick. D8 products that have become stale may taste bad or not be as potent as they were when first purchased.
Delta-8 slowly starts to degrade when improperly stored. You won’t experience the same blissful euphoria, as the chemical structure begins to break down. Even though you shouldn’t keep your D8 products longer than two years, it is always better to extend their shelf life as much as possible.
HOW DO I STORE DELTA-8?
Delta-8 THC may not be as fragile as other cannabinoids such as THC or CBD, but it is still important to store the product properly. Delta-8 storage doesn’t have to be difficult and involves only a few simple steps.
Delta-8 THC products may require specific storage requirements. Let’s start with the basics, which apply to all D8 products.
Keep in a Cool & Dark Area
When you are not using your Delta-8 THC, keep it in a dark and cool place. You can use a cabinet, drawer, or refrigerator. Keep it away from bright light and high temperatures. If you leave your Delta-8 in direct sunlight or the sun, it can accelerate degradation and cause D8 to break down more quickly.
The refrigerator is a great place to store Delta-8 products. You may even be able to keep your Delta-8 product longer than normal!
Make Sure Your Delta-8 Products are in Airtight Containers
Delta-8 THC has a high level of stability and does not oxidize in the same manner as THC. Keep your Delta-8 in an airtight container to prevent oxidation and prolong the shelf life of your product. Be sure to seal it tightly, not allowing any outside elements in.
Keep Delta-8 products away from humid or moist environments
Delta-8 THC will degrade much more quickly in humid and moist environments. D8 can lose its potency if it becomes too humid. High humidity in areas like the kitchen or bathroom can spoil your D8 products.
