For How Long Are My CBD Oil Products Good: Proper Storage of CBD

Now that you have purchased CBD oil products from HempMeds® you may be asking yourself how long you can keep them for before they spoil. Storing your CBD oil products properly will help maintain their freshness and improve their shelf life. Here we discuss some tips to help ensure your CBD products retain their integrity and remain fresh.

Expiration Dates

HempMeds® CBD oil products come with an expiration date attached to their specific batch number listed on the package. This expiration date is usually about two years from the date of manufacture, but may vary slightly depending on the type of product.  

Many people who use our CBD products regularly will not have to worry about expiration dates since they take CBD oil often enough that they are replacing their products with fresh ones on a regular basis.

Most HempMeds® products, including our RSHO™ pure hemp oil oral applicators, RSHO™ liquids, RSHO™ capsules, and more, provide a month’s supply of CBD, depending on frequency of use and size of servings.


Even when used before their expiration date, proper storage can ensure that you are getting the most out of your CBD products from HempMeds®.

For maximum freshness and to keep your CBD hemp oil from losing potency, it’s important to store your product in a place that is cool, dark, and dry. That is because light and heat can cause CBD oil to degrade. To help protect your CBD products, we package them in brown glass bottles to minimize exposure to light.

HempMeds® CBD hemp oil products are also packaged in airtight bottles or oral applicators that are designed to prevent exposure to outside air. Like light and heat, air plays a part in the breakdown of natural cannabinoids like CBD.

Try to keep your CBD hemp oil in its original container, and if you must transfer it, make sure the new container is adequate for long-term storage. Additionally, be sure to always securely tighten the bottle’s lid or fully snap on its cap after each use to extend its shelf life.

A pantry is a perfect place to store CBD oil products, provided it isn’t near a source of heat like appliances or your stove. You can also store HempMeds® products in your medicine cabinet, bedside drawer, or office desk to ensure your CBD is handy when you need it.  

The exception to this is when storing RSHO™ pure hemp oil oral applicators. Once opened, it is best to keep RSHO™ oral applicators in your fridge. Because it is a pure botanical extract with no additives, preservatives, or extra ingredients, the best way to ensure freshness is to store our oral applicators in the fridge.

This, however, can cause the oral to thicken, which may make it harder to dispense. Taking your RSHO™ oral applicator out a few minutes before use or rubbing it between your hands can help warm it, making it easier to dispense from the tube.

With some minimal care to protect your CBD products from light, heat, and air, you can feel assured knowing that you are getting the highest quality experience from your HempMeds® CBD oil products.
