Properly storing rosin is one way of prolonging the concentrate’s shelf-life. The storing method should depend on how long you are keeping the material. The goal is to minimize chemical reactions between rosin and its material, reduce heat and light exposure, and achieve an air-tight seal.
To know which storing method is the best for your needs, first, identify how much rosin and for how long you want to keep it. Storage options for short-term solutions don’t necessarily work best if you prefer long-term storage. Terpene-resistant FEP sheets and parchment papers are best for short-term storage. They are easy to use, cheap, and non-stick. However, they don’t block out heat and light.
Silicone and glass containers are also popular storage methods. The material silicone is a short-term storage option. But it is best if you’re looking for a stick-proof container. It gives rosin users an easy-release, hassle-free convenience in using the concentrate. However, silicone containers react to terpenes over time. The acidic terpenes will break down the silicone and will cause a change in quality.
