How Long Do Edibles Last?

July 23, 2020 4 min read

If you’re a smoker and transitioned into cannabis treats, you’ve more than likely asked yourself the question,


how long do edibles last?


Some edibles can last a fairly decent amount of time before going rancid, but it all depends on what the product is. Items that naturally spoil quick such as baked goods, spoil because of what the components are made of, that cause it to deteriorate.

Something worth noting is that cannabis extract which is infused into edibles, won’t be the main concern. The dairy and fats or even sugars, will spoil way before the cannabis extract will.

With that said, the consistency of the product itself is what changes after an expiration date, not the THC content. THC is not lost, nor is it more potent the longer it sits (as some believe). It in fact, remains the same.

To be on the safe side, most products will have an expiration date where you can check and make sure it’s still okay to eat.


How to Store Edibles

Often times we ask ourselves do edibles go bad? If you need to know how to store edibles,

we’ve got you covered.

To make this easy to follow, I will break down each type of category food along with how their compounds affect their shelf life. Knowing their expiration will help aid you in deciding how to store your yummy DC edibles.

Dairy Products:

  • Stored in a refrigerator cannabutter or cannacoconut butter can last up to 3 weeks.
  • Stored in the freezer they can last to 6 months.
  • Any other dairy product will follow the same guidelines.

Typical dairy products will last 14 days or under. Butter on the other hand and even certain frozen desserts can last much longer.


  • Fats can be stored and good for 3 weeks up to a month if refrigerated.
  • Can last 6 months or longer if in the freezer.

Fats are generally used for heavier foods such as pastas and delicious dinner meals, so storage is usually a few days to a week. However, there are other edibles that use fats and aren’t gourmet foods, those items can last longer. 


  • Store in a dry or cooled area.
  • Refrigerator or freezer is beneficial but not essential for shelf life.

Sugars win the game out of the three. Some sugars such as granulated, can last up to 2 years after opening. This means edibles like candy and gummies are easily favorited and most popular over brownies and cookies, due to their longer shelf life.

As you can see, the freezer is your edibles best friend when wanting to store anything for longer periods of time. It’s always good to be sure to check the best by date of any product before purchasing, and store accordingly.

Cannabis dosing is a highly individualized process, that can’t be measured by how many servings each person should take. Marijuana is not a one size fits all in that it is entirely dependent on many factors such as:

  • Tolerance
  • Food intake
  • Empty stomach
  • Amounts/Serving size
  • Potency

When ingesting any cannabis edible, be mindful that a little goes a long way. What might take someone 30 minutes to feel buzzed can have another person blazed in an hour. It’s all about dosing your weed, and finding the amount that works best for you!

Stoner Fact: Eating marijuana or cannabis edibles along with fats such as cheese, avocado, or any dairy that is high in fat will increase the intensity of the effects when digested.

Now, not only do you know the best way to store your savory SourPack edibles and other appetizing goodies, but you now know how to grab some of the finest succulent gummy treats in town!
