When do I replace my Boveda?
Depending on your container and its surrounding environment, you can expect Boveda to last from 2 to 6 months. Please do not try to re-activate your Boveda by submerging it in water or distilled water. Doing this will destroy the Boveda pack’s ability to provide precise humidity and may expose your cannabis/hemp to unhealthy humidity levels.
TIP: Write the date on new Boveda to remind you when it’s time to switch it out. Or do the touch test to determine when it’s time to replace your Boveda:
WHEN BOVEDA IS KEPT AT ROOM TEMPERATURE
Boveda is still working if you feel:
- Hardening at its corners
- Soft spots among some hard areas
Boveda is expired if it feels:
- Rock solid all the way through (Don’t wait until Boveda gets rock hard before you replace it, you might start to lose those precious terps.)
WHEN BOVEDA IS KEPT BELOW ROOM TEMPERATURE
Boveda can feel cold and rock hard:
- Let it warm up to room temperature and repeat the touch test.
- If your Boveda is now pliable and it feels like thick jelly or dense clay, Boveda is still working—the temperature change won’t impact the performance, effectiveness or shelf life of the 2-way humidity control.
