A glorified humidor? Perhaps, but there are a few things you should know about the differences between a cannabis humidor and a tobacco humidor.
Storing your cannabis flower in plastic baggies isn’t enough to protect the flower from losing potency and aroma. Cannabis buds contain tiny resinous hairs called trichomes that contain terpenes (aromatic molecules) and cannabinoids like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) that react differently to various storage conditions. Buying a cannabis humidor helps you regulate temperature and humidity to preserve your buds for longer and maintain taste.
Most dispensaries use best practices to cure, dry, trim, and store cannabis flower with the highest possible trichomes, terpenes, and cannabinoid content. Once you purchase your cannabis humidor, however, it’s up to you to maintain maximum potency and flavor in your buds. A cannabis humidor is an investment piece that can give you the most out of your cannabis flower, whether you use it recreationally or medicinally.
