Proper CBD Storage
When you have something as valuable as CBD, you’ll want to do your best to take care of it. Part of that is proper storage. After all, you don’t want to ruin what you just purchased. That’s why I wanted to provide some tips on proper CBD storage so that you can be sure your CBD is remains potent and protected. Let’s begin!
How to Store CBD Oil
You may have noticed that Nature’s Ultra CBD oil is kept in black bottles. That’s because research indicates that cannabinoids can significantly be impacted when exposed to light. The black bottles help protect the cannabinoids and preserve the CBD oil.
When you’re not using the oil keep it in its original container, or at least an airtight bottle. Then you can store it in a cool, dark place to preserve the quality of the product. It can be a pantry, cupboard, cabinet, basement, cellar, or refrigerator.
And speaking of a refrigerator, I get asked all the time if the CBD oil actually needs to be refrigerated. Well, not really. But rather than having to look for a cool, dark place, why not just use the convenience of your fridge.
CBD Expiration and CBD Shelf Life
Another question I get asked about CBD oil is if it expires. The sad fact is that it does. I recommend using the oil within six months after purchasing and opening the container. There is a time period the product is expected to be good for, but once that time passes the CBD oil can change scent and consistency. The CBD oil may maintain its cannabinoid concentration and overall profile a bit longer if left unopened, but I still recommend using the product within the six-month time frame.
If you want to know if your CBD has gone bad, just give it a smell. If it smells foul, has a different color, or has a different consistency, you probably shouldn’t use it. Trust me, if you’ve been using CBD for a while you can tell the difference.
Now that you know how to properly store your CBD oil, you can start stocking up. But be sure to use it daily as part of your wellness routine to get the best results.
