How do I use Boveda?

To use Boveda, simply tear open the plastic wrapper on the outside of the pack.  Then remove the Boveda. Take care not to cut or tear the actual Boveda. If you bought Boveda in a resealable or recloseable bag, each Boveda will not be individually wrapped in plastic.

Hand removing 49% RH Boveda from the plastic wrapper

Boveda works automatically using its patented 2-way humidity control to protect cannabis, hemp, cigars, wood instruments, food and other products. Boveda uses only pure water and natural salts in a leakproof membrane to achieve and maintain a constant relative humidity (RH) printed on the outside pack.

For use with cannabis and hemp, you can put Boveda directly into your airtight jar, tote, bag or package.

For use with cigars, you can place Boveda throughout your humidor—under shelves or trays or directly on top of or beneath your cigars. You can also affix Size 60 packs directly to the lid, shelf or side of a humidor using a Boveda Holder, which are available in wood and aluminum. Or attach a Size 320 inside your humidor using a Boveda Mounting Plate.

For use with wood instruments, place Boveda in the pouch(es) in the dedicated Boveda fabric holder. Then position the holder in your case in a zone where there will be no pressure when you close the case. Keep the instrument case shut. The leak-resistant holder lets pure water vapor in and out while providing an extra measure of protection from a sharp string or unfortunate impact. Always insert Boveda into a pouch of a Boveda fabric holder before placing in an instrument case.

For use with brown sugar, dried herbs, spices, popcorn and other foods, you can put Boveda directly into your airtight jar, bag or container.
