How to Ruin Cannabinoids: Bad, Bad Guide
Have you ever wanted to unpack a bag of flowers and discover dry, yellowish buds without any smell?
Here’s how to make it happen:
Forget about buds. Let time pass
Cannabis begins to degrade right after harvesting. With severed nutrition, the cannabinoid biosynthetic pathways get disrupted. Cannabinoids and terpenes transform into other compounds and alter psychoactive properties.
If you want to ruin your cannabis, let it just be. No matter how hard it was to harvest, dry, and cure. Also, it would be okay if you forget about temperature and humidity as well.
Freeze it. Or keep it hot. You choose
Temperature affects cannabis in several ways. Of course, you should store it at temperatures not exceeding 70F degrees. But who cares? Just leave it at a random place in your house and let it get covered by mold. If the place is too cold, monoterpenes will polymerize and change the flavor and aroma of your buds. Want to get rid of psychoactive properties of weed at all? Leave flowers on passenger’s seat of your car on the sunny and hot day for a couple of weeks. THCA will convert to THC, which will subsequently degrade to CBN. Voila!
Keep it wet
High levels of moisture will provide your buds with high-quality mold. Experts recommend storing dry buds with a relative humidity in the 59-63% range to avoid it. But again – who cares?
Just hide your weed in the bathroom. Let your flowers get ammoniated flavor due to the restricted air circulation. If you want to have dry and fragile leaves you cannot smoke, place your flowers in a very dry place. Like, really.
Let the sunshine and fresh air ruin it for you
High exposure to UV light and oxygen, probably, the best and fastest way to ruin your cannabis. UV rays break down organic matter rapidly, causing cannabinoid degradation. Just leave it right in your backyard, under the sun and fresh air. THC will convert to CBN, and your weed will become practically useless.
Okay, okay. Just don’t do what we listed here. Try this instead:
- Consume your cannabis. The faster – the better.
- If you are a cannabis enthusiast, choose, for example, Cannador storage option. It will help you to control humidity and temperature.
- Keep your marijuana away from UV rays and oxygen.
