How fast does Boveda work?
Boveda begins to work immediately. When placed in an empty airtight container, Boveda can bring the internal relative humidity (RH) to precisely the level marked on the Boveda within 20 minutes.

Once you add cannabis or hemp to the container, Boveda again works to stabilize the environment inside. How fast depends on how dry your flower is—it can take up to seven days. Rest assured, Boveda is quick at achieving the ideal RH to protect cannabis and hemp.
Calibrate the Hygrometer in Your Cannabis Container to Ensure Accurate Readings
Just because a hygrometer is registering readings doesn’t mean those readings are right. Over time, both analog and digital hygrometers fall out of calibration. (In professional laboratories, hygrometers are regularly calibrated—as they were before scientists performed the Boveda VS. Glycerin test.)
A properly calibrated hygrometer gives you an accurate account of the RH in a cannabis jar, bin or bag. Storing cannabis at the right RH protects its quality, terpenes and weight. To easily and accurately calibrate a hygrometer to get professional-level results, use Boveda’s One-Step Calibration Kit.
