Time to put our scientist hats on and talk about relative humidity.
Check out the youtube video If this gets a little... dry. Sorry. If we’ve learned anything from Bill it's to never resist a bad dad joke.
What is relative humidity?
Relative humidity represent the amount of water (moisture in the air, as compared to the maximum amount of water the can absorb. This is where the relative humidity percentage comes from or RF%.
Too Much Humidity = Moldy buds
Anything above 62% relative humidity is too much moisture. This can lead to mold and mildew. Gross - no thanks.
Too Little Humidty = Brittle Buds
Anything below 54% relative humidity is not enough moisture. This can create overdry bud and potentially harsh smoke.
To prevent dryness or moldy buds you want to regulate the humidity between 54% and 62%. Keeping your bud regulated will boost aroma and flavours and your overall experience.
Integra's Boost Humidiccant goes a long way to keeping your bud nice and fresh.
Integra uses patent pending technology that releases or absorbs moisture, maintaining relative humidity at 54% or 62% in a contained environment. Ensure your stash is kept fresh with this helpful product.
One Last Helpful Tip
Integra's Boost Humidiccant is made to control and maintain moisture. For extremely dry bud you may need to add a bit of moisture before these packs do the trick. Be careful though, adding too much moisture can create mold, the very thing Health Canada is trying to avoid with their moisture regulations.
