Not really a grow question, but since here are the experts: What do you recommend for long term storage? Can I leave the buds in jars for months or even years or should I put them into the freezer?

Hello Buddha! Your biggest enemies for year preservation is the oxygen, the humidity and the heat. In other words you want to create an anhydrous oxygen free atmosphere for your weed. Here is how i would do it. Place your weed and a silica jel pack in a jar and also put in the jar a chunk of dry ice and close the lid loosely so a little bit of co2 from the dry ice can escape. When a decent amount of dry ice will sublime and you can see a fog in the jar that means that most of the air with oxygen and moister has pushed out of the jar but don't close the jar yet because you may create a bomb of compressed co2 :sunglasses:. Wait until the chunk of dry ice has gotten small and you can still see some fog. Seal the jar and put it in the freezer ( by this way you also creating a little bit higher pressure which lowers the boiling point of terpenes and drops their evaporation rate ) . By this way you can create the best conditions for long preservation. After this point it all depends form how tight seal the jar has! Happy growing ! :facepunch:

Check those, they are ideal for curing buds and will keep the humidity at the right value. As for long term, I would vacuum storage them.
