PRO BUSINESS AND PRO CANNABIS?
Cannabis is indeed a lucrative business. Cannabis companies need to find ways to optimize profits with every yield. One way is by eliminating evaporation all along the supply chain. Cannabis is like any other organic material. After harvest, cannabis starts to deteriorate.
LOSS OF MOISTURE = LOSS OF $
Why? Flower is sold by weight. Cannabis that is cured, stored and packaged, between 55% and 65% RH retains its weight and potency. ASTM International standards specifically recommend using a salt-based humidity control sachet to control a target aW (relative humidity) of 0.55 to 0.65. Boveda is the only salt-based humidity control sachet.
Not only does it preserve flower, Boveda also eliminates the industry practice of overpacking to offset loss from evaporation.
In this robust green market, the price of flower will keep dropping. Cannabis companies that keep product fully hydrated will continue to earn the most money, pound per pound. Makes proper humidity control a draw to cannabis investors, yes?
