Cannabis Storage Methods: Which is Best?

Published

on

Everyone has a different way of stashing their cannabis. Some people use simple plastic sandwich bags, some choose labeled medical containers from clinics, and some smokers swear by glass jars. Either way, we can all agree that we have come a long way from the brown paper bag of the ’70’s!

While I can’t deny the usefulness of a plastic baggie, especially in the days when I had to hide my stash from my roommates in the college dorms, I dislike how dry my cannabis gets after a few days. The plastic pop-top jars from most dispensaries also do not offer an airtight seal, as anyone who has found an old stash under their car seat can tell you! So I started researching new containers available to those with herbal storage needs, and I came upon the CVault from FreshStor, a stainless steel container that features climate controlled 62% humidifier packets and enclosures that ensure an airtight seal.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. How is this container any different from taking a glass jam jar and putting a humidifier packet inside it? The answer is the 2-way Humidipaks that are custom made by Boveda, which respond to the temperature and outside climate of wherever you decide to store your medicine. The pack maintains an ideal moisture depending on the humidity of your environment. This container allows optimum, controlled storage for your cannabis whether you live by snowy mountains or sweaty swamps.

The lid of the CVault jar features a slot where the Humidipak is inserted, ensuring that the packet does not rest against the cannabis, but still allows the pack to cycle humidity in the jar. Stainless steel makes the jar far more durable than glass, which can break when dropped. With this jar, you never have to worry about ruining your stash with shards of broken glass. This picture I found on their website explains a little more about the jar:

I ordered a jar and have been storing my cannabis in it for the last week. I noticed a huge difference in my cannabis after only 24 hours of storage. The buds were stickier and had a more noticeable smell. Since the medicine was so dry when I got it from the clinic, when I checked the weight after one day in the CVault jar it even weighed a bit more! If you want to know more or know how to buy one, you can check out the website for the jars here!

Brief: Legal MMJ Moves Forward in Delaware

Published

By

Great news for the people of Delaware: the state Senate there has approved a bill allowing the medical use of cannabis in The First State, with 18 yea votes and only 3 nays. That vote was on Thursday, March 31st.

Senator Robert Venables (representing Laurel) told the press that using marijuana for medicinal reasons will help ease the unncessary suffering of cancer patients and others.

This bill would give authorized users of medical marijuana legal permission to possess up to six ounces of the drug, which would be obtainable from “compassion centers” which much be registered with the state.

The bill now moves to the Delaware House of Representatives for their review or approval, and then, if it’s approved, to the governor for signature or veto.

Here’s hoping the other half of the Delaware legislature does the right thing, and gives this bill resounding support.

MMJ in Hawaii

Chronic patients in Hawaii may have cause for new hope

While medical marijuana has been legal in Hawaii for eleven years now, the state lacks any kind of dispensary system, which leaves patients there to acquire their weed either by buying it on the black market, or by growing their own.

Last month, however, state Senator Kalani English, of Maui, introduced SB1458, a bill designed to create what was he described as a “… comprehensive five-year medical marijuana distribution pilot program in an unspecified county.”

English explained, at the time, that he proposed the program because he was seeing too many suffering patients asking where they could get their medicine. He added that he had to make the bill “drip with money” in order to appeal to money-conscious legislative colleagues.

Under the terms of the bill dispensaries (which English referred to as “compassion centers” would be taxed, but they’d also allow patients visiting from other MMJ-friendly states to buy temporary permits for the duration of their visit to Hawaii, at a cost of $100, which may make Hawaii the first American marijuana tourist destination.

The bill passed the Senate at the end of March, and passed two House committees (Health and Safety) as well, with a hearing scheduled for the House Judiciary Committee today.

Last week, a call went out asking people for pro-MMJ testimony. If the bill passes today’s hearing, it will then go before the full House of Representatives, and then on to a joint hearing with both the Hawaii Senate and the House.

Vermont Considers Dispensaries

Published

on

By

Like Hawaii, the state of Vermont has had medical marijuana laws on the books for several years, but has left patients to either grow their own cannabis or buy it from illegal sources.

Also like Hawaii, Vermont is considering the creation of dispensary system this year. In fact a bill allowing the creation of such businesses has already been introduced into the state legislature and has passed the state Senate Government Operations Committee and is scheduled for a full Senate hearing sometime this week.

The bill, which was sponsored (in part) by Senator Richard Sears (D-Bennington) includes restrictions that make it fairly conservative, especially when compared to the systems in place in states like California. Among them is a requirement that patients have appointments in order to buy cannabis from dispensaries.

There would also be a limit on the number of dispensaries allowed in Vermont. While the current language in the bill calls for a maximum of two dispensaries, it will be raised to four on the recommendation of Vermont Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn.

The change would increase revenue to the state as well as make it easier for patients.
