||I've heard that marijuana can grow mold if kept for more than a week or so, and that it is not a good idea to smoke moldy weed (or moldy anything, I guess). Would storing it in the fridge be an effective method for preventing the growth of mold?|
||You're right, it's not really a good idea to be smoking moldy plant matter. It's most likely not deadly, but it certainly could cause an allergic reaction or other negative side effects.|
Generally, keeping material dry is the most important step towards stopping the growth of mold. While a refrigerator will keep things cold it doesn't really do much for dryness. Refrigerators also frequently have a lot of molds in them.
One of the best storage methods for any plant material is to dry it thoroughly at a low temperature, then store it sealed in a glass jar like a mason jar. As long as it stays dry this will generally keep molds from growing.
