Fastest Way to Right RH for Cannabis StorageJulie Fulton @ 2019-12-10 10:14:56 -0600
Think you don’t have to worry about flower drying out because you sell it as soon as soon as it’s cured or hits the shelf? A speedy sale doesn’t protect flower against moisture damage. But putting 2-way humidity control in with your cannabis storage will.
Flower is most vulnerable when it’s out of your hands in storage, in transit and in packaging.
FACT: Unprotected flower immediately starts to degrade even when it’s in an airtight tote, jar or bag.
When left unprotected, even for a short time, flower is exposed to moisture fluctuations that impact its value and efficacy. Too little moisture causes cannabis to dry out, resulting in significant losses in weight and key chemical components, such as cannabinoids and terpenes. With fewer terpenes, she’ll deliver a compromised experience for consumers.
To avoid evaporation damaging your flower post-cure, keep it within the range based on ASTM International standards for storing cannabis. You’ll get your flower there quicker with Boveda 2-way humidity control.
Boveda effectively adds or reduces pure water vapor as needed to maintain a constant, predetermined relative humidity (RH) level for dried cannabis.
Why Boveda Is Faster Than Other Humidity Packets
Natural saltwater formulations are sealed in Boveda’s patented vapor-phase osmosis membrane. This patented membrane is highly permeable, which means water vapor can pass through it rapidly.
Initially when you put Boveda in with dried flower, the movement of water vapor out of the membrane is fast. When there is a big difference between the current RH level of flower and where that flower should be, those water molecules move at max speed.
The speed of the water vapor slows as Boveda creates equilibrium in the container. The water vapor stops flowing whenever the RH of the atmosphere surrounding your flower reaches the humidity design of Boveda. Boveda only releases more water vapor when flower dips below that ideal RH.
Boveda’s goal is to keep flower’s RH level equal its own— 58% or 62% RH
In just 3 days, Boveda can bring the air inside a cannabis container or package up to the right RH.
Buds are dense, so it takes them more time to absorb Boveda’s pure water vapor. Within just 7 days, the flower inside the container or package will reach the ideal RH level.
Protecting trichomes and saving terps is why the right RH is a must
Those water molecules released by Boveda create a powerful terpene shield. This shield protects your precious trichomes by preventing evaporation and preserving the terpenes, cannabinoids and THC.
And Boveda creates the shield whenever it’s stored and packaged with cannabis. So even when you flower is flying off the shelves, using Boveda makes a critical difference in maintaining the quality, safety, medical efficacy and value of your flower.
So if you care about the quality of your product post-cure (and we know you do), store and package flower with Boveda.
