Most of the homogenized sample remains unused and is stored in an individual plastic bag, sealed with a zip-lock, and kept in a cool, dry, dark environment. For this experiment, flower samples from 135 lots were selected semi-randomly from the pool of samples tested in the previous 125 days. Samples were intentionally selected to cover a wide range of storage duration and original microbiological contamination values. These samples had all been initially tested for microbial bioburden and/or cannabinoid content immediately prior to storage. The initial test values were compared to values obtained after post-storage reexamination, representing a change in value over time.
Microbiological contamination values for all three contaminants of interest (aerobic, fungal and enterobac) observed under these storage conditions demonstrated a decrease in viable colonies over time. The downward trend was statistically significant at 45 days for aerobic (p-value=0.012) and fungal (p-value=0.035), but not enterobac (p-value=0.444). The decreasing trend was consistent for all three time comparisons. None of the samples in this experiment changed from passing microbial contamination values to failing after storage, and one sample changed from failing to passing. Decarboxylation of THCA resulted in a statistically significant linear decrease in the concentration of that molecule over time, with the average sample losing 0.0167% of its THCA content per day (95% confidence interval=0.0113-0.0221; p=2.91e-8). If we assume that degradation of THCA through decarboxylation follows this pattern of decay, we’d predict the half-life of THCA under these storage conditions to be somewhere in the range of eight to nine years. The storage conditions examined in this experiment demonstrate a decrease in both viable microbiological contamination and THCA content over time. While the downward trends for both are statistically significant, only the change in microbial contamination is particularly meaningful at this time scale. With a predicted half-life of nearly a decade, the rate of THCA loss over 125 days is insubstantial, even if it is statistically significant, and an accurate decay curve would be better demonstrated by a study of longer duration.
It was observed that microbial contaminants in cannabis flower lose viability over time when stored at desiccated conditions, and the implications of this finding to the marijuana industry could be profound. A very important point to consider as a caveat to any conclusions drawn from these data is that the trends observed here are true only for the storage conditions described. Certainly, most producers and processors of useable marijuana do not store their flowers completely dried, as was done in this experiment. From anecdotal experience, this author can confirm that even when modest amounts of moisture are present in the container, marijuana flowers can grow mold in the packaging. A very wide variety of storage methods exist in the cannabis domain, some of which (such as packing with inert gas) might outperform the results of this study in terms of product stability over time. Other forms of storage, particularly when high levels of heat or moisture are present, will certainly perform less well. Perhaps the most important conclusion to be drawn from these results is the realization that there is much more to learn about the shelf stability of cannabis. Studies such as this can be highly informative to manufacturing processes and legislative decisions, especially in such a young industry. With similar methods to those described here, it should be possible to validate relatively long periods of shelf stability. To that end, we encourage manufacturers of marijuana products to partner with their analytical labs to further the science of this commodity and enhance the professionalism of their craft.
