Boveda Protects from Cure to Consumption

That cannabis aroma you love? Give props to drying and curing. It’s during these finishing stages that cannabis and hemp mature. The smell gets better and becomes more potent. But more importantly, properly curing cannabis reduces its harshness.

Once it’s dried, you can prevent flower from accidentally overdrying while it cures by storing cannabis and hemp buds in airtight containers, like jars. Periodically, the jars are “burped” over 14 to 60 days. Opening and closing the lids lets gas out and allows fresh oxygen to enter to regulate the humidity.

Burping cannabis containers isn’t necessary when you use Boveda. Boveda works automatically to regulate moisture to achieve and maintain the precise relative humidity (RH) that’s printed on the pack—even if flower was dried below the intended humidity level, or was not dried enough.

While in the airtight containers, cannabis/hemp continues to age for days or weeks. Internal chemical processes take place that transform the fresh cut plant material into a fully developed product ready for consumption. Even in tightly sealed airtight containers, cannabis/hemp will lose over 40% of terpenes—the aroma, flavor and effect users love—if left unprotected.

Only Boveda creates a shield over the trichome to protect the terpenes from evaporation. The shield also preserves the fragrant aroma until it’s released when the consumer grinds and uses the cannabis/hemp. Because of the terpene shield, the earthy perfume is more potent and the experience stronger. You’ll also discover that the feel and texture of your bud is improved with Boveda.

Precise humidity helps cannabis “squish” to the touch and create a new desired experience.

3 Things You Should Know About Using Boveda

1. A simple touch test will tell you when it’s time to replace

When you check your cannabis, check your Boveda. Brand new Boveda is soft. When you start to feel hard spots, it’s time to replace your packs. DON’T WAIT until Boveda turns into a solid wafer, that means it’s completely dry.

2. The more you use, the longer Boveda lasts

It’s perfectly ok to use more than the recommended number of humidity control packs for the amount of cannabis you’re storing. Dry climates, season changes and very leaky storage containers might require you to routinely use more Boveda.

3. The more you expose it to air, the harder it has to work

If your Boveda lasts 2 months or less, it’s working extra hard to keep the environment stable. Make sure the lids are securely closed on your totes, jars and containers. If storing flower in a bag, keep it tightly sealed.
