Learning how to conserve cannabis can enhance one’s experience with this beneficial plant. After all, consuming legalized, adult-use recreational cannabis is a pursuit that lends itself to connoisseurs. Undoubtedly, many users aren’t connoisseurs and simply want to enjoy the plant for its psychoactive components. Nevertheless, effectively conserving cannabis can bolster its psychoactive elements.

Beyond its inebriating traits, quality cannabis can be pleasing to the senses. A well-cultivated bud, chock full of crystals and vibrant colors (beyond green), is a sight to behold and an aesthetic pleasure. The smell and taste of top-notch cannabis are also tantalizing in their own ways. A gorgeous emerald bud with a pungent musk is what all connoisseurs dream about in between sessions. Sadly, you lose out on a lot of the core elements of the cannabis experience if you don’t know how to save cannabis.

Outside of the consumption experience, you still stand to benefit from learning how to conserve cannabis. Specifically, your wallet will thank you. Read on as we provide five tips about how to conserve cannabis.

Use Proper Storage Techniques

Properly storing your cannabis extends the shelf life of the plant’s freshness, potency, and overall enjoyability. Keep your cannabis in a space that’s dark and below 70°F. Doing so will prevent moisture from changing the flower’s integrity. It will also stave off mildew and mold growth since these bacteria flourish in warm and light environments. Exposing your cannabis to too much light and oxygen will degrade it most, including ultraviolet light. Placing your cannabis in the right environment will keep the plant potent (because it’ll hold onto its THC), aromatic, and fresh for one to two years. Store your cannabis in dark, airtight glass jars for the ideal solution.

Consume Less Cannabis and Keep Your Tolerance Low

It’s important to note that consuming less cannabis can also have other benefits besides keeping your tolerance low. For example, it can reduce the risk of negative side effects such as anxiety, paranoia, and impaired cognitive function. It can also help you to better control your consumption and avoid developing a dependence on the drug.

If you do choose to consume cannabis, it’s important to do so responsibly and in moderation. Start with a low dose and gradually increase it over time if needed. Avoid using cannabis as a crutch for dealing with stress or other emotional issues, and seek professional help if you feel that your cannabis use is becoming problematic.

In summary, consuming less cannabis can help you to enjoy the experience more while conserving your cannabis and reducing the risk of negative side effects. It’s important to approach cannabis use responsibly and in moderation, and to seek professional help if needed.

Prioritize Quality Over Quantity

This suggestion may be somewhat controversial, but hear us out because it aligns with our less-is-more approach.

When you spend more on quality cannabis, you don’t need to consume as much. By combining this approach with the moderation discussed above, you can extend the lifespan of your high-quality buds.

Of course, if you’re low on cash but still want to enjoy cannabis, pay what makes financial sense for you. However, if you can afford to spend a bit more on a premium product, you’ll be amazed at how long it lasts.

Pro Tip: Purchasing THC concentrates instead of flower can give you more value for your money since it’s a more potent option.
