Mostly what fills my cupboards right now are strains from Benni’s & Otie’s with some older stuff from PDO that’s down to a gram....maybe.

So while organizing the Kratom I realized that a lot of my bags were either not shut or were filled with air. Do you think this has affected the potency?

At least it’s not hot & I have it stored in a dark place. I guess when I get up and take my first dose I’m not checking carefully that the bags are sealed.

Ideally you want to store kratom sealed. But I have had bags that the Ziploc wasn't great and I didn't bother to move the kratom to a mason jar. I didn't notice any difference in potency.

Kratom storage 101 KEEP DRY moisture is bad. If you are in an area that doesn't have a lot of humidity I bet the kratom is fine.

Best

I have many bags of Kratom that have only a little bit left in the bag. I rolled it up tightly, sealed them and put tape on them. Then I put them in a plastic sealed container with some desiccants in it.

I went through all my other bags and carefully rolled up the bags to get all the air out and then I sealed them and put them in the cupboards so I think everything’s gonna be fine. I didn’t realize how many had air in them and how many were not sealed properly.

I saw an articvle here somewhere and two scientists studied kratom resilience. All kinds of different scenarios and an open jar of kratom on an old working furnace going off and on i n someones basement, fared no different than samples in sterile, temperature controlled environment. They concluded kratk m powder was indestructible if dry. It ws a link from here but on the other side i think.

Hey there! How long are we talking here? Of course, moisture is a no go but I did some tests a year or so ago where I left product stored in a dry cabinet both in a bag filled with air and in a bag totally open. I stirred around the open bag every couple of months too. I did this with a few different strains, and honestly, I only noticed a very slight decrease in effects after close to a year. tested them out at about the 6 month time and noticed no difference. :-bd

Hey Gina & Nathan, it’s nice to see your presence on here more often. I hope you’re both doing great!!

I’m only talking about 2 months maximum. The strains were in the original bag from the vendors. So no sunlight and little to no moisture since it’s cold now and having the heat on makes the air uncomfortably dry.

Take Care,
Dawn :)

Regarding the testing of kratom, i think the one on top of the old furnace was 6 months in an open jar. That was the one that got my attention. Obviously moisture would affect it. I cant remember the other tests they did.may have been one where they got it wet dried it out and tried it. I vaguely remember someting like that. It was pkl m,here on IloveK . It might be a link from Kratom and the news.? Maybe in index. It was two scientists, gave their names. opened on the otherside

Hey OP. I got some PDO too! And it’s actually really good. But later I got smart and realized he’s horribly over priced.

At this point my doomsday stash is huge. Occasionally I dose some older Herbal Salvation or SoCal and it’s been keeping just fine.
