How to Store CBD Gummies for Maximum Freshness and Potency

Share if you care

CBD gummies are an incredibly popular health and wellness product for many adults in the UK.** A CBD gummy delivers all the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) in the form of convenient, easily portable, and sweet-to-the-palette supplements. But once you get your CBD gummies home, how can you make the most of your CBD experience? For one thing, you want your CBD gummies to last as long as possible, so you can take full advantage of the hemp-derived CBD and other ingredients packed into every gummy. 

This begs the question: What’s the best way to store CBD gummies? In short, you want to stow your CBD gummies in an air-tight storage place. You’ll also want to keep your CBD gummies out of direct sunlight. And you’ll want those CBD gummies to be kept in a cool, dark place.

Let’s dig deeper into the subject of storing CBD gummies. In this article, we’ll begin with a few basics on CBD and hemp, and then we’ll take a deep dive into the colourful world of CBD gummies.

What Is CBD? 

CBD (cannabidiol) is one of a group of organic cannabis compounds, called cannabinoids. There are over a hundred different cannabinoids (including CBD and trace amounts of THC) in hemp. Your body actually produces its own cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), which are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). When you consume CBD, it interacts with receptors in the ECS and bolsters its performance.** This can produce a wealth of health and wellness benefits, and is a primary reason why many adults use CBD products.**

What Are CBD Gummies?

CBD gummies are chewy health supplements that come in a variety of CBD-infused formulas. Many adults prefer CBD in gummy form because gummies can be consistently dosed (as opposed to CBD vapes and CBD tinctures), and gummies are convenient, portable, and mess-free.

Keeping Your CBD-Infused Gummies Stored Properly

So, you’ve found the best hemp CBD gummies for your needs, but what’s the best way to store your CBD gummies? Here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re deciding where to store your CBD gummies. If you keep your CBD gummies stored properly, your gummy hemp product should last from one to two years.

Store Your CBD Gummies in Airtight Containers

Air is unfriendly to most perishables, and this includes both CBD oil and CBD gummies. So, you’ll want to store your CBD gummy edibles in an airtight container. Fortunately, every CBD gummy we sell comes in a bottle that is reasonably airtight. But if your gummy bottle gets cracked or damaged, for some reason, make sure to relocate your CBD-infused gummies to some other storage container that prevents air from getting in and affecting your product.

Don’t Store CBD-Infused Gummies in Direct Sunlight

Direct sunlight can adversely affect the life expectancy of your CBD-infused gummies and CBD oils, as well. So, make sure to store all of your CBD oil products in a cupboard or drawer, where the sun can’t reach them.

Store CBD Gummies in a Cool Dark Place

Heat is another factor that can lower the shelf life of your hemp gummies. So, try to find a storage place that is cool and dark. Some adults prefer to store their gummies and other CBD products in a refrigerator. A fridge certainly is a cool and dark place to store your gummies. The only downside is that your gummies might get hard if they get too cold. But gummies stored in a refrigerator will certainly have a longer shelf life in terms of CBD potency versus gummies kept on your kitchen counter.
