It’s only natural that you want your CBD products to last as long as possible. The average shelf life of a CBD product is about one to two years. However, CBD can expire much sooner without proper care.
Here are three tips for properly storing CBD products that will preserve both their quality and potency.
Keep Products Out Of Direct Sunlight
CBD products often lose their potency when exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Keep them inside and away from windows that have sun exposure.
Store Your Products In A Cool Place
CBD loses potency and can go bad if it’s exposed to heat for extended periods of time. Your products should not be left in your car or near household items that produce heat. They should be placed in your pantry, refrigerator or any other cool storage space.
If you are storing CBD products in your fridge, the cold temperature might thicken the oil. If this happens, place the bottle under warm water for a few minutes.
Use Appropriate Containers
Quality CBD products come in air-tight containers that prevent the oil from air exposure. This is because oxygen breaks down natural cannabinoids and can impact the potency of your oil. You should avoid purchasing items in clear containers because the light exposure will degrade the cannabinoid content.
Always make sure the lid or cap of your product is tightly closed after each use.
How Will I Know If My Oil Went Bad?
Just like milk, you’ll know when CBD oil goes bad due to the unpleasant smell. Also look for cloudy or foggy oil as a sign you should throw the product away.
Temperature Exposure During Transit
Occasionally, your products may go through hot environments in transit to your destination. If your products are damaged in the shipping process due to heat, you are entitled to a free exchange for a new product. Click here for details on our exchange policy.

Despite keeping the CBD tincture high potency full Spectrum bitels in a dark and cool place, they have a musty taste. I'm looking for the expiration date and it doesn't exist. Out of consumer responsibility, I think they should put a work / expiration label on it. QUESTION TO LAZARUS NATURALS: What does B179 (B) @ ????

Speaking of prolonging CBD potency, how about an expiration date label just like all our other over the counter drugs!

I keep mine in an inexpensive safe. Why? Because I DON'T WANT people to help them selves to my drugs and especially children. Being a paramedic (retired) makes me want to protect my grand children and great grand children

Great storage advice. Thxxx'. When I stored in the fridge, the CBD hardened in the liquid dropper and could not be emitted. Storing now in our AZ winter room temp (72-74). During the summer we hold at 78 degrees. Hardening and chunks do continue to plug the liquid dropper. When I ask for a new dropper you sent the complete 120 ML bottle and didn't charge me for it. I love the product but what I really need are additional dropper's so I don't have to drink from the bottle. Thxxx',. Curt' Sorenson. ?

I'm wondering how people who buy the coconut oil use it. I haven't tried it yet. Do you have to use it in cooking/food? Can you take it under the tongue like oil?
Also It was liquid when I got it, but being in my closet, it's sort of half hardened. Is this normal?

Coconut oil melts at about 76 degrees and gets semi solid solid at temperatures cooler than that. So for yours to turn semi solid is perfectly normal. I don't have advice on how to use it. If you get it too hot, I'm afraid that it will destroy the CBD. Maybe someone else has other ideas.

I put a teaspoon of coconut oil in my morning coffee and it works well. It takes about an hour to get the full benefits!

I use to use coconut oil a lot and what you are describing is normal. I use to cook eggs in it but you need to keep the heat at a medium-low temperature.
