For years, cannabis cultivators have counted on Boveda, the global leader in 2-way humidity control, to preserve the quality of their harvest. The ideal humidity level keeps flowers fresh—the aroma, flavor, texture and color. Without Boveda you risk drying out the trichome resin and degrading cannabinoids and terpenes, too.
Decreased flower potency and medicinal qualities will cost you customers. Now Boveda is proving how a lack of moisture affects your cannabis profits even more.
The herbal experts at Boveda have been traveling the country with a water activity meter (Aqua Lab photo shown) to do a little Boveda Cannabis Show & Tell. (WHAT A JOB!) During this show and tell, Boveda tests cannabis with companies to help them understand their weight loss. During storage or packaging, unprotected flower can loose 3+% of its weight due to moisture loss. This represents a $100–$150 per pound loss in revenue.
Neither did the herbal growers who participated in the Boveda Cannabis Show & Tell! Most of the moisture loss was undetectable because of when and where the cannabis grower’s state requires weighing.
If you weigh your flower just after curing, your buds may still be plumped up and ready-to-be user happy, but stored without proper humidification en route to and at retail dries out your flower fast. At the point of sale, you’ll be supplying less product with fewer healing properties. A loss for both your customer AND you.
It depends on how you break out your average pound of marijuana–into grams, eighths, quarters, halves or ounces. (Boveda comes in five sizes to protect small and large containers with many other sizes inbetween.)
Investing about $20 every few months will cover Boveda in all final packaging per average pound to completely avoid the ravages of dry air on your hard work. Tops, you’ll spend $20 to save $100 in lost product. That’s a net average of $80 per pound! What would that do to your cash flow? Your bottom line? Your employees and your future?
In today’s competitive cannabis environment, every gram and every customer counts. Boveda is a quality control program that makes you more money. Business-to-business quantities and pricing are available through our wholesale page, or contact Boveda directly.
