Posted by MPR on June 16, 2023

Do you operate a medical cannabis facility or vendor and need better equipment to keep the product cold for top quality?

Then it’s time to partner with a reliable refrigeration manufacturer with over 35 years of experience with freezing, chilling, and portable refrigeration. Whether you need to preserve meat, ice cream, baked goods, or cannabis, we possess the technology to do it effectively.

Essentials of Storing Cannabis for Medical Purposes

Cannabis production has enjoyed a substantial industry-wide growth in recent years, following the legalization of various products, from CBD oil to medical-grade pharmaceuticals. Of course, like other Rx medicines, they have to be kept at acceptable storage temperatures and conditions.

Besides the temperature, medical marijuana plants must adhere to certain moisture guidelines. If it’s too dry, the substance loses most of its efficacy. Likewise, when it’s too moist, it becomes vulnerable to mold and other microbial hazards.

Refrigeration and storage is an important variable for companies that harvest, manufacture, transport, or sell retail cannabis products. Let’s check out some of the basic criteria that impact how you would handle medical marijuana.

Selecting an Appropriate Refrigeration System

The refrigeration system you choose must accommodate your specific business or medical needs. That’s one reason we specialize in customizable units for the many companies we serve. Below are the primary factors that help determine the right equipment for you.

Industry/Regulatory Standards

The regulations for handling and processing medical marijuana are still in flux and developing, so you’ll need to know your state’s regulations and plan accordingly. Most jurisdictions have requirements for temperature, moisture, and air quality as it pertains to storing this substance.

Temperature/Humidity Levels

You should select equipment that can keep the humidity below 50%, and temperature between 70 and 80 degrees. The ideal humidity for cannabis is relatively close to the ideal ambient room conditions (between 30 and 40%).


How long do you intend to store cannabis and where would you put it? We offer both rental and purchasing options, depending on how long you need to store medical marijuana. This includes trailer units if you’re in charge of shipping products.

Once you’ve taken these factors into consideration, we can help you identify the most appropriate refrigeration equipment. Don’t worry if you don’t know the precise specs for this because our staff will be more than happy to help you investigate every detail.
