In Boveda’s ongoing effort to educate the cannabis world about how parched flower devastates cannabis quality, we uncovered something even more striking:
Imagine if you bought a dozen eggs and 4 were missing. What if those eggs were buds? Cannabis short changing is happening to some Colorado consumers. And Boveda wants you to be on high alert.
Haters Gonna Hate, Then Take Away Our Rights
When you sell dry cannabis with plummeting potency who pays? Patients, users and the whole cannabis industry. What if a study uses your dry off-the-shelf flower to measure cannabis’s therapeutic benefits? Cannabis haters will be able to cite these inaccurate findings to restrict cannabis consumption.
We’re giving cannabis retailers the benefit of the doubt. Or rather, the benefit of thinking they can predict how much moisture will evaporate from a particular package of cannabis and when that particular package will be sold. Soothsayers are they!
Why under-compensating for moisture loss costs you:
How Boveda discovered the bud-loss:
Without Boveda, how much cannabis came up short in Colorado:
We’re not going to name names. Just be aware that when cannabis brands “pack heavy,” dry air removes quality and value out of virtually every type of packaging.
So how has the cannabis industry gotten away with leaving flower to the mercy of the terpene-destroying conditions in Colorado? Strong demand. Cultivators are able to sell nearly everything they grow, no matter the condition of the flower.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be like this. A Boveda in every jar and container solves the problem of over drying. Boveda adds (add removes) just the right amount of moisture to lock in a precise relative humidity (RH) level that’s perfect for cannabis. Storing buds with Boveda maximizes the quality and efficacy of cannabis. And now Boveda ensures fairness in flower transactions, too.
Might it be time to start weighing your purchases. Or at least, weighing your dispensary choice.
Does your dispensary protect your buds with Boveda?
