From what we can tell, the vast majority of the other ingredients in edibles will degrade long before the THC or CBD does. According to edibles companies we’ve spoken with in the past, cannabinoids won’t degrade in edibles for at least a year, and will likely last longer. Ever wonder how long it takes for an edible to go bad? Check out our guide on how long edibles last before you stock up.

Ask a Stoner: Do Old Edibles Lose Potency?

Dear Tracy: From what we can tell, the vast majority of the other ingredients in edibles will degrade long before the THC or CBD does. According to edibles companies we’ve spoken with in the past, cannabinoids won’t degrade in edibles for at least a year, and will likely last longer. So even if those candies and other THC-infused goodies taste like crap after their best-by dates, they should still get you good and stoned. And for anyone who has ever eaten special mushrooms, eating a crappy-tasting edible should be a breeze.

Still, anything with dairy in it — cheesecake and milk chocolate, for example — will eventually spoil, even with refrigeration, so don’t sit on those items too long. Most baked goods, like most cookies and brownies, will last much longer than cheesecake, though they’ll obviously get stale after a week or so. It should be noted that freezing edibles won’t kill their THC or CBD, either, so put anything you’ve been nibbling slowly on ice.

Do edibles expire?

Generally speaking, edibles can last and still get you high 3-6 months from when they are made, with proper storage. After that, the food itself may get stale and the THC may start to degrade.

All edibles have different shelf lives, and those bought at a licensed store or dispensary will usually have an expiration date indicating when the product is no longer safe to consume.

Some baked goods, like brownies and cookies, may go stale in a week or so, while gummies can stay fresh for months. If you stock up on edibles, you can put some in the freezer if you don’t plan on consuming them soon. Simply thaw out before eating.

Do edibles have a similar shelf life to regular foods?

Making food with a cannabis infusion shouldn’t affect the food’s shelf life. Edibles should have the same shelf life as their non-cannabis counterparts: A weed gummy will go stale in the same amount of time as a regular gummy, as will a weed brownie compared to a regular brownie, and so on.

Like regular foods, edibles with preservatives will last longer than those without preservatives—this is one reason why gummies are so popular.

Determining shelf life with homemade edibles is the same—if making your own batch of weed brownies, they should last as long as regular brownies.
