One common question people who don’t know much about CBD have is, “Does it expire?” We want to go more in depth on this topic and share with you what we know about different CBD products and if they expire or not.
Does CBD Expire?
CBD doesn’t necessarily expire, but the quality can deteriorate over time. The flavor and potency can decrease over time if you don’t use it for a certain amount of time after you purchase it. This means that the sooner you use your CBD products after you get them, the more potent and more flavorful they will be.
CBD flower is a pretty popular CBD product. It is not mixed with any other products, so you could consider it a raw product. Because of its raw status, you can enjoy using CBD flower pretty much any way you want. You can tell when CBD flower starts to get old by the color and texture. If the color starts to drain or isn’t as bright, that means the CBD flower is getting old. If the flower is dry, it won’t be as potent or flavorful. The best way to maintain the flower’s quality is to store it in a cool, dry place with a sealed container away from the sun. You will also be able to tell if our CBD tea is still usable on the same criteria: check the color, scent, flavor, and potency of the tea to see if it is still quality level.
CBD tinctures can expire. If you have had the tinctures for over a year or two, you should probably get a new tincture. The flavor and potency will have definitely decreased within that time frame. You may be able to tell if the tincture is past its prime by color changes and scent changes. To maintain freshness, you should store your CBD in a dark place. Sunlight and heat can cause these products to oxidize and possibly even evaporate.
Edibles and Crumbles
Edibles and crumbles are pretty straightforward when it comes to figuring out if they are still good to use. You will be able to look at the color and tell if it has faded. The flavor is another tell — if the flavor is significantly less potent, then it’s probably time to throw them away. For crumbles, the texture would be a little off, as well as the flavor and color. Storing these products in a sealable container is the best way to keep edibles and crumbles fresh.
