CBD gummies can last up to 6 months with proper storage. One pack of gummies contains 30 edibles which you can’t consume in one sitting.
Proper storage of your CBD products will ensure that the flavour remains the same and that they maintain their potency.
So, what is the best way to store CBD gummies?
Let’s find out!
Understanding what gummies are made of is the first step to finding the best storage option for them.
CBD gummies are sweet, chewy candies infused with cannabidiol. These vegan-friendly products come in different flavours, such as zesty orange and sweet strawberry.
The first and main ingredient is refined CBD oil, which is THC-free. Other primary ingredients are sugar, a thickener such as gelatin or fruit pectin, and flavouring.
When making CBD gummies, the ingredients are first mixed, heated, and poured into moulds. After which, the CBD isolate is added to infuse the gummies before they harden.
CBD gummies contain sugar, water, and gelatin or pectin in combination with other flavourings and scents. The confection (CBD gummies) will lose moisture if left exposed to the air due to evaporation, which can make them hard.
Research studies suggest that moisture plays a critical role in determining the quality and shelf life of sugar-based confections, from the hardening to the graining of hard candies.
Therefore, when storing your CBD gummies, you should ensure that they maintain their moisture content. To do this, you need to store your CBD gummies in a place with low humidity to prevent evaporation of the moisture content from your edibles.
You also need to ensure your gummies are not exposed to moisture content outside of what they have. This is because moisture promotes the growth of mould, mildew, bacteria, and other contaminants, which can cause food poisoning.
Lastly, your CBD gummies should not be in direct contact with sunlight, as this will promote the growth of bacteria. Also, extreme temperatures can denature the ingredients in CBD gummies, rendering them ineffective.
Prym Health CBD gummies come packed in airtight containers and wraps, creating an ideal environment for them to maintain quality. We recommend keeping your gummies in their original packaging when you aren’t using them.
Refrigeration is one of the best ways to store gummies.
A fridge has no humidity and is cool and dark, which are essential for storing gummies. However, ensure not to place them near the door of the fridge. This is because when you open and close the refrigerator, the drastic temperature changes can affect the quality of your edibles.
Freezing of gummies is not recommended unless you’ve bought many packets that you won’t be using for a while. Also, if you need to freeze, do it immediately after purchase so that the quality will remain the same even after you thaw the gummies.
Some CBD gummies are made using gelatin as a thickener. Gelatin is a protein obtained from animal bone collagen. This gel-like substance is best stored in the fridge to keep the gel intact.
Vegan CBD gummies like the ones we produce are made using pectin.
Pectin is a water-solvent fibrous material obtained from fruits. The fibre can get hard if exposed to evaporation. Therefore, gummies made using pectin can be refrigerated to prevent them from going bad.
You can store CBD gummies in a cupboard or pantry. Ensure it is dry, cool, and dark before placing your gummies in there for the best environment.
However, since most CBD gummies contain sugar, this may attract ants, which you need to keep an eye on!
If you are unsure, it’s okay to consult your pharmacist for additional guidance on how to store your CBD gummies properly.
The shelf life for your CBD gummies largely depends on how you store them and the ingredients used.
If stored properly in a cool, dark, and dry place, their shelf life ranges between six and nine months.
However, CBD products, just like any other food or form of medicine, have a potency that declines over time. CBD gummies have potency strength that begins to decline after six months, so it’s best to consume the products within that time frame.
Our CBD gummies comes with a stamp indicating the expiry date. This date will help you determine the time within which you need to consume them.
