When you place Boveda’s patented 2-way humidity control inside your cannabis/hemp container, it begins to work right away. Immediacy is a priority—because when terps are at risk, there’s not a moment to lose. The all-natural salt and water solution starts to regulate the relative humidity inside your container and creates a monolayer shield of purified water over the trichome.
All the essential elements responsible for the cannabis/hemp experience, including terpenes and cannabinoids, are housed in the trichome. And the terpenes found therein are essential to the desired smell and effect in cannabis and hemp.
Boveda’s packaging allows only purified water to be released into the container. Only this vigilant humidity shield can protect the terpenes from evaporation that can occur in the cannabis curing process.
While in the airtight containers, cannabis/hemp continues to age for days or weeks. Internal chemical processes take place that transform the fresh cut plant material into a fully developed product ready for consumption. Even in tightly sealed airtight containers, cannabis/hemp will lose over 40% of terpenes—the aroma, flavor and effect users love—if left unprotected.
How to Use Boveda Packs
To keep your herb fresh for longer periods of time, place the correct size Boveda pack in an appropriate sized container mentioned in the size description. Put your Boveda packs in a container that is completely sealed, such as a CVault Jar. A regular sandwich baggie won’t work as they breathe too easily and this will dry out your pack faster than it should. Once your pack is done (it feels a bit hard or crunchy) simply replace it with a fresh one!
