The Challenge of Preserving Cannabis
Marijuana is a flower, and is dried to contain 12% to15% water content. The psychoactive attributes in marijuana are unique to the plant. These agents are greatly affected by oxygen and humidity levels postharvest, while molds, yeast and pathogens affect the physical constructs, life span and consumer safety. No other plant form contains the psychoactive factors such as THC and CBD. The problem is that it is degraded during storage and by refrigeration. As a result, there is no active container system for the treatment of cannabis.
