What is the expiration date of CBD Oil?
Posted on November 10th, 2021 to CBD Oil
Products that are natural and made without preservatives have a shorter shelf life. Many factors can affect the expiration date of CBD Oil. The main three are the quality of the ingredients, packaging, and storage.
As expected, higher quality products usually last longer than inexpensive products. At Hempeutics Pharmacy, we use both high-quality ingredients and high-quality packaging. We dispense our CBD oil tinctures and topicals in amber glass air-tight bottles because it looks great and protects the CBD oil.
CBD oil will generally last one to two years when stored correctly. Keep it in dark-colored glass and keep it away from heat and sunlight. We recommend storing your CBD in dark, cool areas with temperatures between 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
You can choose to refrigerate your CBD products. It won’t harm them or increase the CBD oil shelf life but will affect the viscosity. Refrigerated CBD oil will generally be thicker and murkier until you allow it to reach room temperature. If it doesn’t thin and remains cloudy once it has reached room temperature, it will be essential to smell the product to make sure it doesn’t smell rotten and check the expiration date.
Will the CBD Oil go bad once opened?
An opened CBD product will generally have the same expiration date as an unopened CBD product when stored properly. Make sure to close the bottle or package tightly and keep it in the dark, cool area like a cabinet or drawer.
So does CBD oil go bad?
As we stated above – like any other quality product, CBD oil will eventually expire (opened or not). However, CBD products will last the entire shelf life when stored properly. At Hempeutics, we offer various sizes of bottles to help reduce the chances of not having enough time to consume the product before it expires.
Where Is the CBD Oil Expiration Date?
The expiration date should be on the packaging as the FDA requires for consumer protection. At Hempeutics Pharmacy, our CBD oil expiration dates are listed clearly above the QR code on our tincture bottles and the front packaging of our CBD gummies. To conclude, CBD products that haven’t been stored properly or are past the expiration date listed on the product should be disposed of properly.
