    plastic, and yes I have noticed that after a week or so my herb dried out slightly.O2 seeps in glass mason jars too, Which is why alot of folks here plan on purchasing the humidipacks that are sold with the c vaults.Of course I dont keep that much herb on me. no more than a week or2 So I tight vac is a good option for me versus a mason jar/c vault

    You'll be wondering "Why didn't I know/switch to jars years ago?", lol

    Hope they fit your needs.

    Its funny because after a few days my bag would get all cloudy and have crystals on it, and I would see it but not think anything of it. Also after a few days it would get a bit crunchy and fragile as well. TBH, I dont know why i havent made the jump before lol. I hope to see a noticeable difference after a week of storage. I will not open the one for next week until next week and I will have one for this week which I go to for a grab and go, and see if there is a difference.

    Just remember, if you have one nug but a ton of empty airspace in the jar, they can still get crunchy.
    (Although you're still avoiding the direct contact with cheap plastic, so it would still be better)

    Might be possible to take one jar and fill up the bottom half with something inert that would cut the volume in half, if needed.

    What would you recommend to use as a filler? Great advise btw.

    Now that I'm thinking about the process, it seems like a much trickier task than I imagined trying to find something as inert as glass that could tightly seal off half the jar.

    One alternative option, if you weren't planning on using all of those jelly jars, is selling a couple to some friends to fund the purchase of a tiny 1-2oz jar for smaller amounts.

    I know specialtybottle.com has lots of very small jars for under a dollar each, the only catch is they quote shipping as an extra $6 (to california anyway).

    Hey! first post so go easy.... Anyway I'm looking at buying a cvault. I usually grab in half oz's, given that too much air is bad should I look at buying the small or should I go with the medium (I see the dimensions but don't wanna make a mistake as I'm ordering online)?

    I'd say the Medium, I have the Medium and it was smaller than I thought so I don't think you will fit all that much in a small.

    Maybe someone with the small can chime in on how much they can fit in there...

    The cvault is what i use for my main storage then the jyarz for daily use and on the go.

    Thx SV! Unless I hear differently I'll go for the medium.

    I hate ordering online, I'm impatient and like to see what I'm buying lol. It's a long shot but does anybody know anybody that sells these retail in the Mississauga ontario area?

    I know the feeling, I purchased online as well so I have not seen the small in person.

    Only a guess it wouldn't hold a half oz but I could very well be wrong. I suppose it depends on how fluffy or dense the herb is as well...

    I have six of these little glass vials that I store mine in. They can hold 2 - 4 grams depending upon if you pack it down or not(ground bud).

    Randomly found and purchased on eBay. I don't think they're available anymore. Searching keywords "apothecary" or ground glass" seems to yield similar items.

    These are the best jars money can buy for preserving your herbs!!!!!!

    http://ambientjars.com/

    Miron Glass
    Based out of Colorado Springs, Colorado we are quickly gaining popularity among many medical marijuana patients along the front range, due to the fact that it actually keeps high dollar herb, in the same or better quality than when initially purchased. This is due to the trans-formative properties of Violet Light.
    _________________________________________________________________

    Studies conducted by German Scientist may indicate that the high frequency of (UVA) and Visible Violet, coupled with the frequencys of (FAR Infra Red) will not only preserve but improve bud quality once it is stored in Miron Biophotonic UV Glass. All Jars come with (LDPE) Low Density Poly Ethylene foam, little effort is needed for a quick, airtight seal.
    During those studies it was also noted that Miron Violet Glass also has the capacity to block microbial growth.
    _________________________________________________________________


    Ambient Jars believes that a true connoisseur needs a great jar at a fair price, considering the state of the economy we offer the highest quality products at the lowest prices!
    _________________________________________________________________

    An Ambient Jar, is THE ONLY way to store your Medical Marijuana. Every Stash Jar we produce is made with the finest materials, utmost quality and attention to detail. Ambient Jars, is the only company offering (ENGRAVED and PAINTED) MIRON UV GLASS at THE CHEAPEST prices. [​IMG]

    Would you be interested in doing a blind test? I'll put JyARz up against your containers any day! I would require an independent testing agency but if you say your's are the best jars on the market I think you should be willing to do some objective scientific testing to prove it.

    What do you say?

    I am just a consumer, I dont have anything to do with this company!!!
    I am just someone that does a lot of research, & miron Glass is the best for preserving whatever goes inside!!!!!
    Your Product looks very cool and legit, id say there probably on par since your seem to block out light also!!!!!

    Miron glass come's from old egyptian technology, you can keep herbs as fresh as the day you put it in for about 6 months!!!!!
    No uv light can penetrate the violet glass, in turn it wont degrade your material!!!!
