Stash your Weed in Jars

Glass Weed Jars

I like using glass jars to store my stash because it keeps it fresh for longer than any material. It also looks good on any counter next to a few different strains, check out a top for the best strains in the world. The problem is when you travel because you need something that is smell proof and durable. You can go backpacking with a few glass jars because they will get there in pieces and you will be out of weed.

Lucky there are a few great alternatives some made from stainless steel others from aluminum. Don’t think about that aircraft grade stuff because you won’t find it here. If you don’t want to spend some money on a portable stash jar, get a 4 piece metal weed grinder that will act as a stash unit.

Screwtop Jars

Another type of weed jars, that are on top of my preferences are the screwtop jars mainly because they are safe while traveling and they are air-tight(most of them). Here we have 2 types, glass or metal, I will let you decide which is the best for you.

Clear Screw Top

Clear Screwtop stash jars are made from glass, the good ones and not the plastic things. they come in different colors, but I like the clear ones and some good designs. But you can easily put some sticky notes with your strain name to remember them if you have a wide variety. Some manufacturers have stickers on which you can write with a marker and later on you can erase it if you get another strain.

UV Screw Top Jars

I’m sure you know that sunlight can affect your weed chemistry, why not protect it from that with a nice glass made UV screwtop weed jar. These too come with multiple designs which I;m sure that you’ll enjoy.

Don’t confuse them with the metallic ones because here we have both of them. The glass ones are classy but more fragile, you have to choose which one to get, I have a few of both for diversity.

Pop Tops Stash Jars

This type of weed jars is some of the most popular because of their low cost and low maintenance. I know that some people have pain problems and unscrewing a lid or opening a latch top are problematic. I personally love to keep my mmj in these even after I grind it because I can easily reach it and use it.

While researching I found that there is another type of pop top jars that are made from plastic. This one is used by delivery guys as it’s fairly cheap and easy to use. I personally hate them because it’s not air-tight and if you keep your herb there for a while it will be dry, this is my personal opinion so feel free to contradict me.

We also have a lot of sizes here and for a good reason.

Common sizes

Size Chart
Size Holds Height Width
X-Small 1/6 oz 3.25” 2.25”
Small 1/4 oz 3.25” 2.5”
Medium 1/3 oz 4.0” 3.0”
Large 1/2 oz 4.5” 3.5”

If you want to open a dispensary or you grow you’re own, there are some bigger sizes for you.

Wide Mouth Jars

This type of weed jar is rather new, but I love the fact that it comes with a silicone lid that is airtight and won’t let your favorite herb get dry. As the name says they are wide, check out the numbers below if you don’t trust me.

Normally the glass is thicker than on normal glass weed jars but this depends on the manufacturer.

Concentrates (Kief)

I love kief, and I love to store it safely and what better way to achieve that if not with a concentrate jar, yes, yet again made from glass. Not only, these things are classy but they can be washed easily and you won’t have the unpleasant surprise when you scrape some plastic with your meds. They are also UV proof so no worries here.

These jars also come with a silicone insert that fit perfectly into them, thus making your kief more accessible.

Latch Tops MMJ Jars

These type of weed jars are some of the best that I’ve used so far. I like the fact that these are hermetically sealed using a rubber gasket. The problem is that you need to apply some force to open it and I know that some MMJ users have pain problems and I suggest taking a look at some Pop Tops.

Because they are made from thick glass you won’t have to worry about it breaking unless you drop it on the floor. These jars will keep your favorite strain fresh for a long time and will definitely fill the whole room when opened.

As always there are so flaws, apart from the force need to be opened, these things are big. I consider myself a heavy user, but a medium size latch top 420 jar will last me a week.

Smell Proof Bags

Smell Proof Bags

I personally love smell proof bags when I travel light. I normally carry a backpack in which I have my Space Case Grinder and a UV metallic jar. But when I want to be lighter, I have one of these bags that are pure awesomeness. There are some that are ready for your pre-rolled joint.

The sizes vary a bit, from 1 pound to 1/8 oz. I saw some of the at a delivery guy, I know that delivery it’s their main target, but I like them because they are light and as the name says they are smell proof. The problem is that you can’t carry your weed all grinded and ready to roll because then you won’t be able to reach the bottom.

Replacement Lids

You will probably need a few replacement lids from time to time because you either break it or lose it. Let’s face it they are made from plastic and they thing won’t last forever. Another thing that you need to consider is the rubber gasket, if that’s attached to the lid it will eventually break. That’s because of the wear and tear and rubber gets older and looses some of it’s natural proprieties.

Plastics Jars

There is a reason for their position in my preferences chart and that is that they don’t offer anything but a temporary solution. Most of them are not air-tight, break easier than a glass weed jar and are ugly. I generally talk about high-end stuff since we spend good money on awesome weed strains and I like to enjoy them as much as I can.

Using a plastic jar for your weed is like using an acrylic weed grinder, it’s good for the moment but while you’re spending money why not do it for the long run.
