Delta-8 edibles are relatively new in the world of cannabis products. The rise in popularity of delta-8 based products is since they do induce some small psychoactive effects while still producing a mellow and calming “high”.
People who want to calm down after a hectic day at work or want to relax turn to delta-8 edibles with the hopes of achieving their desired results. Delta-8 edibles are a great way to sit back, relax, and enjoy the night ahead.
However, it’s no secret that edibles can have different effects on each person using them. For example, if you have never used edibles before, it is recommended that you start with a low dose of 5-10mg.
If you also like to use delta-8 edibles, you must know how to preserve them properly. After all, nobody wants expired edibles!
So how do we keep our Delta-8 products fresh?
We use state-of-the-art food processing techniques to ensure the freshness and quality of our edibles. For example, we use a vacuum sealer to reduce the amount of oxygen in the packaging when packaging our products.
We also use unique ingredients that help preserve food for extended periods, such as lecithin, an emulsifier that helps keep oils from separating from their water base. You might have noticed that many delta-8 edibles come in tinctures, which are liquids that are taken orally rather than eaten. delta-8 edible products often use hemp extract as the base ingredient, more concentrated in liquid form.
Delta-8 is hygroscopic and will absorb moisture from the air. If your edibles are exposed to too much water for too long, they could become moldy, or the delta-8 THC could crystallize.
However, if you notice mold or other discoloration on your edibles, the best thing to do is throw them out. One warning sign of decay is a white, powdery substance.
Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold. Be careful not to leave edibles in the car or anywhere else that can get too warm or cold. Avoid getting moisture on your edibles too.
A common question asked by consumers is how they can keep their edibles fresh and potent.
There are many ways to keep your delta-8 edibles fresh while also preserving their taste and potency. But, if you’re clueless about how to store delta-8 edibles properly, you’ve landed on the right page!
- Always keep your edible in its original packaging.
- Store them in an airtight container or baggie to keep them from getting stale. Airtight containers will help keep air away from your edibles, preventing any moisture from entering.
- It will protect them from mold and bacteria growth and prevent them from going soggy. Plastic baggies are not airtight, so use a sealable glass jar or plastic container for best results.
- Store them out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. It helps prevent any melting and keeps your edibles fresher for longer.
- Keep them out of reach from children and pets. It is essential for their safety and for preserving your edibles so that they don’t get eaten before you want them to be eaten!
- Keep your edible in the fridge or freezer if you don’t plan on consuming it right away or if you live in a humid climate.
- The fridge is a great place to store your cannabis edibles because it keeps them fresh, ensuring they retain their potency for longer.
- Make sure your edibles are stored somewhere with good airflows, such as a pantry or cabinet.
- Only take out the amount of edible you plan on using at a time and return the rest to its packaging immediately after use.
- If you’re storing anything with a flavor or scent, like gummies or candy, keep it away from other things with strong smells so that it doesn’t absorb those aromas.
