WARNING: FRESH CBD FLOWER TERPENES EVAPORATE QUICKLY
Fresh CBD Flower Terpenes are critical to your enjoyment of smokable Fresh CBD Flower. If they’re not protected with Boveda, your flower will lose 40% of its aroma, flavor, and effectiveness within a week of storage or packaging. Only Boveda, the original terpene shield, creates a monolayer of purified water over the trichome which keeps all that awesomeness locked in so you can enjoy a smooth smoke.
Only Boveda offers a monolayer of purified water that protects your fresh CBD flower terpenes from evaporation and degradation. And as a company with decades devoted to the science of 2-way humidity control, we know you’ll benefit from our obsessive devotion.
There’s no aroma more enticing than a fragrant fresh CBD flower in full bloom. Only Boveda protects your terpenes until grinding so you’re inhaling perfection.
When you place Boveda’s patented 2-way humidity control inside your fresh CBD flower container, Boveda 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 fresh CBD flower 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 patented packaging allows only purified water released into the container. Only this vigilant humidity shield can protect the terpenes from evaporation that can occur in the cannabis curing process.
BOVEDA PROTECTS FRESH CBD FLOWER FROM CURE TO CONSUMPTION
That cannabis aroma you love? Give props to drying and curing. It’s during these finishing stages that cannabis and hemp mature. The smell gets better and becomes more potent. But more importantly, properly curing cannabis reduces its harshness.
Once it’s dried, you can prevent fresh CBD flower from accidentally overdrying while it cures by storing cannabis and hemp buds in airtight containers, like jars. Periodically, the jars are “burped” over 14 to 60 days. Opening and closing the lids lets gas out and allows fresh oxygen to enter to regulate the humidity.
Burping cannabis containers isn’t necessary when you use Boveda. Boveda works automatically to regulate moisture to achieve and maintain the precise relative humidity (RH) that’s printed on the pack—even if the flower was dried below the intended humidity level, or was not dried enough.
While in the airtight containers, fresh CBD flower continues to age for days or weeks. Internal chemical processes take place that transforms 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.
Only Boveda creates a shield over the trichome to protect the terpenes from evaporation. The shield also preserves the fragrant aroma until it’s released when the consumer grinds and uses the fresh CBD flower. Because of the terpene shield, the earthy perfume is more potent and the experience stronger. You’ll also discover that the feel and texture of your bud is improved with Boveda.
Precise humidity helps fresh CBD flower “squish” to the touch and create a new desired experience.
94% of consumers who tried a side-by-side test of cannabis stored with and without Boveda, chose bud protected by Boveda. We’re still working on the other 6%—we’re confident our product will make them eventual believers.
See, most consumers are unaware of the time their cannabis sits in packaging or storage containers. The cannabis industry averages at least five weeks between cutting and sale. During those five weeks, terpenes will continue to evaporate even in an airtight container until that unprotected cannabis is sold and consumed.
WHAT IS INSIDE BOVEDA?
Each Boveda consists of a specially prepared saturated solution of pure water and natural salts. This saturated solution is contained within a patented water-vapor permeable “reverse osmosis” membrane.
Boveda humidity packs provide the cleanest and most purified humidity of all other products available on the market today.
All Boveda products are maintenance free and require no activation.
Airtight storage containers: In order to maintain humidity and oxygen, store your hemp flower in mason jars or airtight containers like the Boveda CVault, which is made of food-grade stainless steel and impenetrable to light.
one year if you buy hemp flower from a reputable company that sells premium organic CBD nugs and store it the right way, your buds can last up to one year.
Basically, sealed glass containers are the way to go, as glass cures the Fresh CBD flower and stops it from degrading over time. Then there's temperature and light exposure to consider, as CBD buds don't love extremes and far prefer milder storage conditions.
Store your jars in a cool, dark place, and your potent CBD-rich, CBD flower will remain fresh until you are ready to use it.
Yes, it can expire even though it may be in degrees. High humidity is particularly bad for the preservation of Fresh CBD flowers. Mold and mildew can develop with too much humidity particularly if it is also stored improperly.
Cannabinoids stay at peak levels with almost no degradation. Freezing preserves terpenes that would otherwise be lost to weeks of drying and curing.
Humidity packs are designed to either release moisture into the air or draw moisture out. In order for a humidity pack to work, you have to use it in an airtight container. The pack will last anywhere from 2 months to a year. You'll want to check it regularly.
