What is the most effective way to store large
amounts of buds without them drying out.
One of the more effective ways and usually the
easiest way is to put your buds into a large ziplock bag, remove all
the air you can and then put it into a freezer. This method will
keep your buds fresher longer than most other methods. Other methods
would be to fill gallon glass jars and seal them up or vacu-pack the
buds. The freezer method makes it easier to get at the buds when you
want them compared to having to open a vacu-pack and re-sealing it
over and over.
