Does CBD Oil Expire?
CBD oil can come with some amazing properties but, like many other organic substances, it also has a tendency to break down over time. Although CBD oil can last a good amount of time, it is important to know how long your specific oil will hold for.
In most cases the expiry date for CBD will vary based off of the formula, storage and packaging method for the materials. Properly stored CBD oil will not expire for at least a year after it has been purchased. This is more than enough time to get full use out of your oil. Shelf-life claims from a number of manufacturers can go upwards of 1 to 2 years and while it is important to consider a one-two year age range as a good start or rule of thumb, there are other important factors that can influence the expiry date of your oil.
Keeping It Out of The Light
Any packaging for CBD oil needs to be able to block out light. Proper packaging for CBD oil will help ensure a longer shelf-life for the product. Packaging products with the goal of keeping sunlight out is imperative.
Choosing The Right Formula
CBD concentrates with pure hemp and zero added ingredients are not built in the same way as other products that contain some type of preservative in the oil.
When storing CBD:
– Keep it away from heat
– Keep air exposure to a minimum
– Consider storing it in the fridge if you are not going to be using it immediately
CBD oil does expire but by following some of these directions you can work at slowing its degradation.
