Spring for humidity packets
Long-term users will appreciate the existence of humidity packets, meant to be stored with cannabis nugs long term. Inside any airtight container -- preferably glass but people often use Tupperware -- these devices keep a steady humidity of around 62%. Cheaper than a humidor but not as versatile, it’s a simple way to store a big jar of weed a long time for a lot less.
Keep it out of the fridge
Don’t store flower in a refrigerator or freezer. The former’s temperature and humidity fluctuate too often and the latter will create brittle trichomes that fall off at first touch. Unless you’re making ice water or dry ice hash, keep the cold away.
Plastic does have a purpose...
... and that purpose is temporary, on-the-go storage. Use plastic medicine jars if you can. They’re much less conspicuous anyway.
