Boveda’s patented 2-way humidity control continually responds to ambient conditions by adding or removing moisture to affect the enclosed environment and deliver the pre-determined RH (relative humidity) level printed on the pack.
When Boveda is completely dry, it will turn into a solid wafer. It’s just short of this, when there are very few soft spots left, that you’ll want to replace them.
Adding more than the minimum amount recommended by Boveda is perfectly ok and in some cases required for dry climates, seasonality, or very leaky storage containers.
If your Boveda is being depleted quickly (less than 2 months) then you know that Boveda is working extra hard to keep that environment stable. The solution is to verify your humidor doesn’t need to be re-seasoned, or to add more Boveda packs.
The same technology that revolutionized cigar storage is also available in the herbal-specific RH (relative humidity) of either 58% or 62%. Available in multiple sizes to fit your favorite container, Boveda monitors the ambient conditions and adds or removes moisture, as necessary, to maintain the perfect water content of the flower. You’ll immediately notice that color, texture, taste and strength are enhanced. As long as you have a working Boveda now makes it possible to store herbal medication indefinitely.
What role does Boveda play in the curing process?

When do I replace the Boveda?
The life of any Boveda depends on how much water vapor it needs to release. When Boveda is completely dry, it will turn into a solid wafer. It’s just short of this, when there are very few soft spots left, that you’ll want to replace them.
Are there different sized Boveda?
Boveda is available in 4gram (2×2″), 8gram, (2.5×2.75″), 60gram (3.5×5.5″) and 320gram sizes. The grams refers to the amount of liquid inside.
Will Boveda over-humidify my herbal medication?
Never. Boveda is the only product in the world that knows when to stop adding moisture and won’t humidify beyond the RH on the pack, so there is no such thing as “too much”. Using more than recommended will just work more efficiently and last longer.
Here’s a guide on minimum Boveda and size:
Boveda 4 gram: 7-14 grams of medicine.
Boveda 8 gram: 14-28 grams of medicine.
Boveda 60 gram: 112-450 grams of medicine.
Boveda 320 gram: up to 5 pounds of medicine.
How long will Boveda last?
Because sizes of containers and how often they’re opened vary widely, Boveda will last 2 months in a container opened often, all the way to a year or more if not often opened. That’s what makes Boveda so ideal for long-term storage. Just check the texture of the Boveda and replace it when there are very few soft spots left.
Can Boveda touch the medicine?
100%. Boveda won’t damage anything through direct contact.
How can I maximize the life of Boveda?
The tighter the seal on your container, the better. Minimize the time your container is open. Use the largest Boveda that will fit in your container or use more than one.
Boveda is ideal for storing and curing (aging) cannabis that has already been dried. While Boveda is effective in moisture removal, the standard method of hanging in a dry environment is most effective. When you feel the plant is close to the intended moisture content for curing, Boveda will do the fine tuning for perfect long term storage. Grow it, dry it, package it with Boveda. You get perfect long term curing for the best possible cannabis.
