After 8 years applying our patented 2-way humidity control ability to cannabis, we’re thankful for the countless global fans who trust Boveda for cannabis curing, storage and merchandising.
The world has known that Boveda is fantastic for cannabis, but now we have the first research on why. And it’s exciting.
As the only product that can control a specific humidity level in packaging, it’s Boveda’s duty to initiate research on the effects of different moisture levels for a number of things we protect. We pioneered research in tobacco, wooden instruments, food and now cannabis. We want to help the world determine what chemical changes happen when different humidity levels are applied to various organic materials, especially one as sensitive as cannabis.
The full text of the cannabis study can be found here, but here’s a summary:
Two identical jars of cannabis, one with Boveda, one without. After 6 weeks they tested the terpenes. The cannabis with Boveda had 15% more terpene retention than the jar without Boveda. That’s a very big deal. That means that even in great packaging/containers which hold in moisture, the indispensable therapeutic terpenes are micro-evaporating into the container’s head space (the air inside) faster if Boveda isn’t in there providing precision, active humidity control and slowing their loss.
This is just the first of more world’s-first testing. Evaluations are under way to discover so much more about how Boveda improves the safety, quality, smell and flavor of cannabis.
Thank you for making us the Global Leader in 2-way Humidity Control!
