Used for commercial cannabis packaging, Smart Bud Containers have become a popular storage solution for large scale operations. They do a good job of keeping weed fresh from the grow to the shelf, but may not be the best long-term cannabis storage solution for your valuable bud.

What are smart bud containers?
Smart bud containers are tin cans that are designed for weed packaging. The can itself is sealed with a pop top (the same style metal seal as a cat food can), and comes with a plastic lid on top, ostensibly to enable storage of your cannabis after you’ve opened it.
Reviewing Smart Bud Containers
Smart bud containers are child resistant, reusable and recyclable, which makes them an efficient choice for producers.
However – the tins have a few downfalls to consider after they have been taken home and opened:
- The lid is plastic, which makes it less than ideal for storing cannabis
- The lid doesn’t provide an airtight seal
- There’s no built in system for regulating humidity
- They don't protect the cannabis from drying out after opening (loss of terpenes)
The Better Weed Way to Store Weed
While Smart Bud containers may be good for packaging and selling cannabis, they are obviously not the best option when you want to keep your cannabis fresh after you open it. Instead, once you've opened your smart bud container, your best choice is to opt for an Evergreen Storage Solution.
Evergreen storage jars are made of glass and metal, which are renowned as the best materials for storing cannabis.
These storage jars are designed to work with our cannabis humidification pods, which help to perfectly balance humidity levels in the jar to keep weed fresh. Evergreen humidification pods can even revive weed that has dried out due to improper storage.
