#Ask Boveda Question (Angela from Instagram):

“Can I really use tortillas to help keep my cannabis fresh?” (28:02)


For years, cannabis enthusiasts have resorted to many methods to humidify dry marijuana. People add tortillas, banana peels, apples slices, bread and other organic items to keep their jarred cannabis fresh. While absorbing some moisture from foods and food remnants, your cannabis also absorbs their flavors and aromas. 

Boveda enhances—doesn’t change—cannabis’s own flavor, aroma and effects. Boveda 2-way humidity control keeps cannabis at the optimal moisture level to prevent mold growth and retain your bud’s therapeutic benefits.

Like tortillas, the ingredients inside Boveda are food grade. Boveda uses natural salts and pure water to add or absorb water vapor to cannabis. But unlike tortillas, Boveda achieves and maintains a precise RH level for the long haul for your cannabis. No guesswork. No dried-out flower. Save your tortillas for Taco Tuesday and store your cannabis with Boveda instead.
