Boveda packs. What's the deal?

I have Bovedas in my cigar humidors that I’ve been using for 3 or 4 years…

Ya i use them in my curing jars and they last 3-4 months sometimes much longer. If only lasting a month bud is not dry enough…

I think some people don’t realize they’re a “two way media”. Meaning you can set a saturated out to dry or recharge a dry one…

Drum roll please.
After last cutting, I had 7 jars. One got a Boveda, 6 got burped for 2 weeks.

I wasn’t able to tell any difference.

They should still be burped when using a Boveda. Bovedas only control RH, they don’t do anything about the offgassing

“Offgassing” ?
That’s why I put this stuff up. Cause I don’t know. Please explain

@Grandaddy013. As the weed cures and chlorophyll breaks down it off gasses and that needs to be burped or let out to air.
Otherwise a sour or off taste will develop on the buds.

Has this ever happened to you?

@Grandaddy013. Yes. Once on my last harvest when I used the bovedas for the first time.
I didn’t burp enough and when I went back to the jar a month later it tasted off.
But by leaving the jar open for a few hours it was greatly diminished.

I saw a grower’s (legit in Colorado) YouTube, and he was filling a trash bag, throwing in 3 large Bovedas, and that was it. Ling term storage to me is 6weeks. My grow is remote location. PITA to burp daily, much less multiple times per day. I was hoping to avoid burping. Hell, I went a couple of years and didn’t know about burping.

Yes it has. I’ve chucked whole quart jars because of this.
