Should I Store Gummy Edibles in the Fridge?

Gummies stored at room temperature can last for several days, but keeping them in the refrigerator can extend their shelf life by one to two weeks. Cannabis gummies will last several days in the pantry, a few weeks in the fridge and several months in the freezer. It's best to keep groceries (and cannabis-infused cooking oils) fresh in the fridge, especially those that contain sugar, oil, or flour. Cannabis butter can be stored in the freezer or in the refrigerator in a glass container.

To maintain potency, keep gummies free of contamination and ensure their overall integrity for continuous use, store them in a dark environment at controlled temperature in hermetic edible mylar bags or in glass cannabis jars. If not stored properly, gummies dry out and lose flavor over time, or worse, if left near high heat, they can melt completely. Make sure that the fridge temperature is set to an optimal level: too hot or too cold can ruin the gummies. When marijuana-infused foods, such as gummies or chocolates, stay for too long, mold can form and cause foodborne illnesses.

Under the right conditions, cannabis-infused products, such as gummies, chocolate, brownies and root beer, can be stored for extended periods of time. Check the gummies from time to time and if they seem to have lost their shape, taste, or smell, it's probably time to discard them as they may have gone bad. To avoid consuming old gummies that have been stored for a long time, make sure that your groceries are stored securely and in a way that maintains their original quality. Store gummy marijuana edibles in a dark, cool and dry place as extreme temperatures and light can affect their quality.
