Boveda® Humidity Control Bag 58%
Cure and store your cannabis at a constant and optimal humidity by adding a Boveda Humidity Control Pack to your cannabis container.
This maximizes flavor and potency retention and takes away the harshness of smoking.
Boveda Humidity Control Bag 58%
When storing cannabis, it is important to maintain an optimal and constant level of humidity. This is the only way to maintain the quality and effectiveness of the flowers, even during prolonged storage.
Boveda is a 2-way humidity control system that absorbs moisture when it gets too wet and gives off moisture when it gets too dry.
This works on the natural principle of osmosis:
Each Boveda pack contains a bag of natural salts and a bag of pure water. Both bags are connected with a permeable membrane so water can pass through, absorbing or releasing moisture as needed. This regulation keeps the relative humidity in the storage box at a constant 58% or 62% relative humidity, depending on the pack.
Both values are excellent for cannabis flowers and which one to use is mainly a matter of personal preference.
Put the Boveda pack in the storage container with your cannabis.
When the pack gets hard, replace it. The bigger the pack and the more packs are used, the longer they last.
The 4g bag is enough for about 15 grams of cannabis
The 8g bag is enough for about 30 grams of cannabis
The 67g bag is enough for about 450 grams of cannabis
58% vs. 62%
Boveda 58% RH and 62% RH work the same way—they’re both humidity control packets that lock in a specific humidity for storing cannabis.
Boveda’s patented 2-Way Humidity Control regulates moisture to protect the potency and flavor of your herbs. If your flower is dry, a Boveda packet releases purified water vapor. Too moist? Boveda’s natural, food-grade salts absorb ambient moisture into the pack. Your cannabis container will maintain the constant relative humidity level equal to the RH printed on the Boveda packet, whether it’s 58%RH or 62%RH.
But you might feel like we just left you hanging.
If Boveda 58% RH and 62% RH are both specifically designed for cannabis, how do you choose? To point you to the right humidity regulation for your cannabis, ask yourself two questions.
Where do you live?
Let Mother Nature be your guide. Most flower is grown and sold locally, so look to its growing climate to find the sweet spot for storage. People usually acclimate to the moisture level that their native environment bestows on their flower.
It should also depend on what you’re guarding against. Do you live in a climate with lots of ambient humidity? In that case you may prefer a 58% pack to protect against excessive moisture i.e. mold. If you live in a dryer climate, terpene retention is your biggest issue. When your flower goes dry, the trichromes that hold those precious terpenes are at risk. To guard against this, you may prefer a more humid 62% pack.
Use your surroundings to help you optimize your personal taste – which is what this is all about.
What do you smoke?
Indica versus Sativa. Blue Dream versus Sour Diesel. Your cannabis humidity preference might differ from strain to strain–some like it dry, some like it moist. While you can enjoy any strain at either, here’s how you can start honing in on your personal likes.
Create a Boveda test:
- Start with over-dry cannabis.
- Buy a 58% and 62% RH Boveda packet.
- Stash the same strain in two separate airtight containers (choose 2 of your favorite cannabis storage containers just make sure they’re the same.
- Place a Boveda into each container.
- Repeat the test with a new strain – see if your taste changes when your strain changes. (Chemistry class was never this fun!)
