Is There A Proper Way To Store Edibles?

Updated: Sep 21, 2021

There are many different ways to consume medical marijuana in Ohio. Edibles are one of our favorites. They are effective, a non-inhaling method and they are just a lot of fun!

But let’s be real. We all have bought a stash of edibles only to find them weeks later stale as ever. Or ever worse, you spent the entire day in the kitchen pouring your heart and soul into some marijuana brownies that you couldn’t eat in time.

Although this happens with all kinds of food, it stings a little bit differently when you have the throw away medical marijuana edibles.

Today, we will be getting into the nitty gritty on how best to store your edibles, how to keep homemade edibles lasting long and where you can get them in Ohio.

How to Properly Store Candy Edibles

Candy edibles are one of the more popular edibles types. What is great about candy edibles is that since there is sugar in them, they are naturally preserved. These kinds of edibles last a long time naturally but can become stale overtime when air and temperature get to them and cause their texture to change.

Candy edibles such as caramels and suckers are super sensitive to moisture which makes them soft and stick together. You can prevent this from happening by keeping them in an airtight container in a cool, dark place in your pantry. If the edibles are soft, remember to keep each piece wrapped individually. They should last like this from six to nine months!

Keep in mind that with all edibles, you should always keep them locked away so that no one gets to them that shouldn’t.

How to Properly Store Chocolate Edibles

Chocolate edibles are sensitive to temperature and moisture just like hard and soft candies are but they also are sensitive to humidity as well. You can store your chocolate edibles properly by keeping them wrapped in tin foil in a cool, dark place.

Dark chocolate lasts the longest when properly stored, which can be up to one year! White and milk chocolate can last like this anywhere from eight to ten months.

Another trick you can use is to keep your chocolate edibles in the freezer. This will keep their shelf life and add an additional two months as well!

How Long Can Homemade Edibles Last?

There are a lot of people in Ohio that are making homemade edibles at home using products that are purchased from dispensaries!

Most people make homemade edibles that are baked goods. With these edibles, air is not your friend. Keep your edibles always locked in an airtight container to start!

Labeling homemade edibles is super important. This will help you gauge how long they will last naturally.

One of the best tricks to making homemade baked goods last is to store them in the freezer, just like chocolate edibles. Muffin can last up to two months when stored in the freezer and cakes, brownies and breads can last up to three months!
