    Questions about long term freezer storage

    So I've got about 4 or 5 jars now that I want to put in the freezer for long term storage. But I had a few questions before I just threw my jars into the freezer.

    Do you guys typically just put the entire jar into the freezer? Or do you transfer your bud into a zip lock bag or something like that? I also have humidity control packets in my jars but I'm assuming I'd take those out before freezing. Also, I read in one of the tutorials that you don't put it into the freezer until after about 6 months of sitting in jars, is that a good amount of time or do you guys wait longer before freezing?

    Anything else I should know about freezing my bud?

    We smoked some bud that had been in the freezer for damn near 2years, in ziplocks, and still caught a decent buzz.
    But we don't freeze it around my house, it don't last that long, to many damn potheads at my house.
    Maybe someone else can help you better answer your questions.

      Once buds are frozen, thay become very fragile, what I mean is the good stuff brakes off easily if no handeled gently than a slow defrost, vacuum sealing and freezeing is only one way for long turn storage another way is after vac. Seal, bury in the ground.


        Yes, I freeze weed once it gets to 6 months old- Emergency supply-in case of a crop failure, etc.

        Once thawed, they look/smell as good as the day they were placed into long term storage after 1 year.
        A seal a meal device is great for this, but have it set low so the buds don't get too crushed.

        I consume mostly edibles, so I make oil from the frozen weed which is as good as the day it was harvested!

        ps- the oil is then frozen and I end up using cannabis that was grown 18-24 months prior.
        It's all bullshit - until you smoke it!

          That sounds good, I haven't made oils yet, only butter. Is frozen bud easier to use for making oil?

            Doesn't make any difference, because you have to decarboxylate it- so either frozen or thawed is fine.
