Are pill bottles good for storing weed

They work well enough for the small amounts that you tend to keep in them. Not for long-term storage. Mason jars or those little glass craft jars with the hinge are great, though I’m not fully convinced all of those little glass hinge jars are consistently airtight either. Certain pill bottle designs seem more airtight than others. Also as someone suggested, on some plastic medicine jars there are threads on the top of the lid so that you can screw it on two ways. One or the other tends to be more airtight. Test it by squeezing the sides of the bottle when it is closed. If there is no pressure, it is bad.

Pill bottles are a lot better than ziplock baggies or other things I’ve bought or stored weed in before, like envelopes, saran wrap, foil, folded up notebook paper, etc. If you really want to keep your weed fresh or maybe even improve its taste definitely use a glass jar.

One of us needs to invent a porcelain/glass/ceramic container with a double lip top thats got a nitrile rubber gasket and a hole in the top with a tube coming out attached to some sort of vacuum pump. I bet weed would stay good for a up to a year in something like that.

i think you just invented it, lol

For what it’s worth film containers are more airtight than pill bottles.

If you have a lot more quantity than that, just use glass jars..

So far, the method that’s kept my bud the freshest is putting it in an airtight mason jar, and then putting that in four or five Ziploc bags, pushing as much air out of them before sealing.

Kind of what I do. But backwards I guess. I put the bud in a double-lock zip lock bag, pushing all the air out, and then folding that up and placing it in a mason jar with the lid on tight. Stays moist and fresh for many months.

I actually do the same thing with dry mushies. Though, I haven’t tested any potency loss yet.

NOW you’re thinkin’! That’s a good way to regulate the humidity and keep your bud fresh. I actually think the reason why people think it has a limited shelf-life is because they aren’t thinking about the needs of preserving and aging a combustible herb. Cannabis isn’t tobacco, but I think that they have a lot in common in terms of curing, maintaining, and potentially aging for future smoking. I’m interested in experimenting with the aging potential. In the right environment, THC degradation should be minimized to the point where aging for flavor enhancement, improved combustibility, and matured smoothness might be achieved such as has never been dreamt of before. But that’s just the cigar enthusiast in me coming out, really. In all likelihood, I could be dead wrong about that. But bud kept in a humidor maintained at 65% relative humidity would keep quite nicely, I believe. Bud is mold prone, so it would have to be kept below 68%RH. But I think that it needs to be less than that to truly remove the chlorophyll and impurities and whatnot, and to be smokeable; it’s not like tobacco, in that regard, which is happier in the 68 to 72%RH range. Tobacco’s still very susceptible to mold, though; I lost three boxes of some really great cigars recently. TnT
