CANNABIS DOESN’T HAVE A “SELL-BY” DATE
Even the most diligent stoner has misplaced that small bag of bud they bought a few months back. And like a prodigal son returning to his kingdom, finding that bag of weed feels like all your Christmases have come at once. The trouble is, your once prized marijuana now looks a little worse for wear. Those once vibrant green buds now appear brown and slightly dishevelled. Naturally, our thoughts turn to the most obvious question: can I smoke weed that is months old?
Cannabis isn’t like food, and it won’t make you ill if you consume it after several months. That is, as long as your weed hasn’t developed mould or bacteria in its downtime. Smoking contaminated weed can bring a whole host of problems and is best avoided. Store your weed correctly, and it can be used months, if not years, after first being harvested. What you need to be aware of is, despite looking pretty much the same, the chemical structure of your cannabis will have changed significantly depending on how well it was stored.
