Is your dispensary curing on the shelf?
Did you know curing is the most critical part of cannabis cultivation? Curing is another term for aging. After hang-drying, a cultivator introduces cannabis to a container, ideally at a stable humidity level, for a time between a couple weeks to a few months.
A proper cure is essential for maximum patient safety, maximum quality (color, aroma, flavor) and maximum therapeutic benefits.
Boveda for trim?!
A producer in Humboldt feels strongly that even trim needs proper storage in order to retain the terpenes right up until processing. Here’s what he says:
“Trim and extract material exposed to humidity causes’ moisture to be absorbed in the material, resulting in extracts that deteriorate faster. Deterioration reduces extract efficacy and value to the manufacturer, the consumer, and every other link in the supply chain.
Placing a few Boveda in bags of fresh trim helps to create full flavored extracts with mouthwatering terpene profiles.”
