Heard of Humidity Control Packs? Here’s How They Protect Products
In its natural habitat, humidity normally gets a bad connotation. However, humidity can sometimes be a good thing! While humidity in the air during hot summer months can be a huge pain, humidity in the container for your cannabis products may actually be beneficial — if it’s maintained at the correct level! If you are not sure if this is accurate or not, read on.
Humidity and Moisture Control Packs
As the cannabis industry explodes in popularity, so too do the cannabis industry accessories. One of the hottest on the market? Humidity control packs. Sometimes these are also referred to as moisture control packs, but they are essentially the same product. As a cultivator or dispensary that regularly works with cannabis, you know it is critical to ensure it is stored properly. If not, your product can dry out and lose not only its potency but its flavor as well. No one wants that. Humidity control packs are used to combat this. Their main job is — you guessed it! — to control the humidity in a sealed container to keep your cannabis in an ideal atmosphere.
Think of a beef jerky bag for a second. Remember those little white packs that said: “DO NOT EAT”? Those little packs are humidity or moisture control packs to keep the beef jerky fresh and hold the juicy flavoring until you are ready to devour it. It’s the same concept here for cannabis humidity control packs. While you may not necessarily be eating your cannabis, you do need it to be kept fresh and flavorful until it is ready for consumption.
If your dispensary has cannabis flying off the shelves and you don’t think that humidity control packs are for you — think again. According to a study, even minuscule changes in local temperatures around terpenes can cause drastic changes in the plant itself. Terpenes are actually incredibly sensitive to outside influences such as light, temperature and even oxygen. Having a moisture control pack in place to keep the environment perfect for your cannabis is essential to ensure the potency and quality of your cannabis.
