The Challenge of Preserving Marijuana Without Refrigeration

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 by refrigeration. As a result, there is no active container system for the treatment of marijuana.  All the packaging on the market designed to preserve fresh produce is passive and needs refrigeration to be effective. As a result current technology is not applicable, since it is incapable of creating the refrigeration free environment that will effectively extend the life, potency and safety of marijuana
