    Default From curing jars to Mylar

    Hi everyone. This is my first post here whoop dee doo!

    My buds have been curing in mason jars for about a month. I’m burping every other day. Is it ok to transfer to Mylar bags for long term storage now? (I use 100cc OAs in a quart size bag with 1 oz of bud.) I’m thinking it should be ok now-the buds hung in my closet til the branches would snap before the jars) But never tried it before. Just beans and rice upntil now lol.

    I would leave them in jars for storage... why the mylar bags?

    I harvested 9 ounces of bud this season. If I designate most for long term storage, (I consume an ounce a year) less chance of it going bad. I’m talking 5 to ten years with the Mylar maybe longer with Oxygen Absorbers.

    I’m sure I’m thinking straight on this. Just wanted to throw it out to see if anyone had my answer.

    can you vacuum pack weed? then it’s 100% airtight until you wana use it, you’ll probably end up with some loss of the quality of your bud?

    An ounce a year? Those are rookie numbers, you need to step it up a few levels dog.

    I'm only jealous, me and my girl blasted over three ounces in a month after my last harvest. Big fucking spliffs like the back end of a pool cue all day long.

    Sounds like you need some mini humidity meters. They are really cheap. No need to burp unless humidity is too high. Once it stabilizes at a safe level you need to stop burping. Bovada humidipaks (58% or 62% depending on preference) are great for long term storage. Cvault storage containers are a bit pricey but are best for real long term storage. I have 3 year old weed that still smokes perfectly. So far 3 years is as long as it's been held before smoking but I image it would past much longer if stored correctly.
    Never heard of storing in mylar so i cannot comment on that. When i used to purchase my weed it mostly came in double wrapped vacuum packed food plastic and i could still smell it through the plastic which implies it is not being stored correctly.

    I stored some in food grade zip lock bags. Smokes ok after 2 years but all smell has gone. Same stuff in a jar has held up much better.

    As long as the seals are good, some of the cheaper ones dont seal so well so you end up with bone dry bud...no need for a grinder I suppose
