How to Revive Dry Cannabis
To any self-respecting cannabis enthusiast, there's nothing worse than smoking dry weed. However, there is hope! You don't need to throw it in the trash. Revive it with moisture! There's a lot false information out there about adding moisture to weed. The most common mistake is adding fruit to a bag or jar with cannabis. Not only will adding fruit cause too much moisture, the fruit can rot and cause mold growth on your bud.There countless videos on YouTube and articles demonstrating this method of remoisturizing because it's a cheap method and misinformation spreads quickly, but don't fall for it. Trust us. Another big mistake is wetting a sponge and putting it in your bag or jar. A sponge will exhaust all the moisture inside of it until the sponge is dry, leaving the bag or jar full of 100% humidity. This is way too much moisture and will cause mold growth on your buds.
There are two basic ways of adding moisture to your stash. If you have a bag or jar, the simplest method to add moisture is to use BovedaÆ 62% RH humidity packs. If you have a box or humidor, the other method is using a rechargeable Humidity Bead SystemÆ. Both methods provide the ideal humidity range between 55% and 62% RH, which is perfect for weed. Anything higher and you will run the risk of mold. Why are these two methods safer and better than fruit and sponges? Because they're set to a certain ratio of humidity and utilize salt as a component to regulate this ratio. It's safer and cleaner than using organic material like fruit that carries mold spores.
You can revive dry weed by putting the dried buds in a jar (either Mason or MironÆ) and add the BovedaÆ pack; let sit for a few days to a week and the buds will be back to normal. Another method is to pop your dried buds in a CannadorÆ and charge a Humidity Bead SystemÆ by dipping the bead case in Reverse Osmosis (RO) water. You will notice a difference within several days how squishy the buds will be. BovedaÆ recently commissioned a test and found that by adding moisture, in this case their humidity packs, the cannabis buds retained 15% more terpenes, thereby giving more flavor.
