    Whats everyone using and looking for recommendations. The plastic containers from Aurora seem to dry out the product over short time even with moisture packs. Mason jars look interesting but way to big for my needs ( smallest i could find was 125 ml)
    TIA and hope everyone had a great holiday

    Don't know the exact size but for my big stash, I use a Mason jar about the size of a can coke. For my stash I use daily, I use a smaller Mason jar that's a little bit bigger than baby food

    I use mason jars. The small 125ml jars comfortably hold an 1/8th of flowers with a bodeva pack to maintain the RH, and an oxygen pack. The 250ml jars hold a 1/4 to a 1/2oz. I store the jars in a cool dark spot.

    I vacuum pack the jars using a foodsaver pump.

    This method preserves weed for a long long time. I take out a couple days worth at a time. Vacuum sealling takes mere seconds.

    I have a few of the CVaults that i use for storing my herb in.

    For the most part i use small and medium Mason jars that i cover with black tape.
    Bang a Boveda pack in there and you are good to go!

    I will also use this system when i am storing my home grown buds for extended periods of time:

    It has these seals you place on the lid, after you have made a small hole in the center.
    Place he pump over the seal and pump away.
    Seals the jars rock solid!

    I use 420 Science jars. They're a nice quality and come in a range of sizes with different durable emblems/labels for a nice personal flair. My biggest one fits a half-oz and I use a 62% boveda humidity regulator in it to keep it funky fresh. I mainly use the clear glass style, so I make an effort to keep it out of light and also away from heat.
    I got one for free when I bought my EQ and now have four. Really happy with them, I got another one free in a box of stuff which is really small and amber/UV proof, perfect for traveling or attaching a MFLB finishing grinder.

    I keep mine in three large agricultural silos.
    One for my sativa, one for the 'guest' hybrid and one for indica.
    ofc, my desktop stash is more modest - wheelbarrows fitted with spring-loaded lids and my custom-made 'hit me now!' dispenser which involves an ice-cream scoop.
