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…
I’m talking about my weed never last a few months.
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
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.
OOF! That sucks!
my experience is if they snap its already too dried
I was talking about the weed doesn’t last a few months
