The Secret to Perfect Cannabis Storage: Humidity Packs

The Secret to Perfect Cannabis Storage: Humidity Packs

Posted by Tom's Tumbler on May 21st 2024

As the popularity of cannabis continues to grow, so does the need for proper storage solutions. One such solution in the cannabis community is the use of humidity packs. These small, often overlooked packs play a crucial role in preserving the freshness and potency of your cannabis flowers. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the importance of humidity packs and how they can revolutionize your cannabis storage experience.

Understanding the Importance of Proper Humidity for Cannabis

Maintaining the right humidity level is essential for preserving the quality of cannabis. If the humidity is too high, it can promote the growth of mold and mildew, while overly dry conditions can cause the buds to become brittle and lose potency. Cannabis plants thrive in environments with relative humidity levels between 55% and 62%.

The Role of Humidity Packs in Cannabis Storage

Humidity packs, also known as moisture packs or humidity control packs, are designed to regulate the moisture content in the air within a sealed container. They contain a precise blend of salts and water that either release or absorb moisture to maintain a specific humidity level.

What are the Benefits of Using Humidity Packs?

  • Preservation of Potency: Maintaining optimal humidity levels helps to preserve the potency of the cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis flowers, ensuring that they retain their therapeutic properties and flavor profiles for longer periods.
  • Prevention of Mold and Mildew: By controlling humidity in your cannabis cultivation, humidity packs help prevent mold and mildew growth. , Better humidity control for your cannabis storage prevents contamination and potential health risks.
  • Enhanced Aroma and Flavor: Properly stored cannabis retains its aromatic qualities and flavor nuances, providing a more enjoyable consumption experience.
  • Longer Shelf Life: Cannabis stored with humidity packs tends to have a longer shelf life than improperly stored flowers, which can degrade more rapidly over time.

How to Use Humidity Packs for Storing Cannabis 

Using humidity packs is simple:

  • Choose the Right Pack: Select a humidity pack with the appropriate humidity level for your storage needs. Common options include 58%, 62%, and 65% humidity packs.

  • Place in Container: Insert the humidity pack into an airtight container with your cannabis flowers. Mason jars are a popular choice for this purpose. Mason jars have been frequently used, but metalized heat-sealable bags have become the most popular choice for this purpose.
  • Monitor and Replace: Regularly check the condition of your humidity packs. If they become dry or hardened, it's time to replace them with fresh packs.

Tips for Effective Cannabis Storage

  • Store in a Cool, Dark Place: Keep your cannabis container away from direct sunlight and heat, as these can degrade the quality of the flower.
  • Don't Overload Containers: Leave some space in the container to allow for proper air circulation and humidity regulation.
