Frequently Asked Questions About Cannabis Humidors

How long can cannabis last in a humidor?

When the appropriate humidity is maintained in a cannabis humidor, the cannabis can be kept indefinitely. It’s important to ensure that the cannabis is not kept in a too humid or too dry environment, or you will run the risk of the bud drying out or becoming moldy. 

Do I need a humidifier in my cannabis humidor?

Though it’s not essential to have a humidifier in your cannabis humidor, humidifiers are a great tool in maintaining the relative humidity within the humidor. Often, they not only add humidity into the cannabis humidor, but they work to remove excess humidity when the ambient humidity levels are too high. This saves your terpenes on the flower which provide the flavor. 

Where should a humidifier be placed in a cannabis humidor?

We recommend placing humidifiers in the center of the cannabis humidor to allow the entirety of the humidor, and the cannabis within it, to receive the same amount of added humidity. 

How can I keep cannabis fresh in a humidor?

You can keep cannabis fresh in a humidor by maintaining a relative humidity level of 55% – 65% percent. At this humidity level, the bud will retain an appropriate amount of moisture while still being dry enough to enjoy the flavors, as well as ward off mold and bacteria. If your natural environment is below this humidity level, you can increase the relative humidity in your humidor with humidifiers. 

How does a cannabis humidor work?

Cannabis humidors work to store your bud for extended periods of time, regulating temperatures and humidity levels. By regulating the temperature and humidity, you can extend the lifespan of your cannabis supply, enhance flavors and prevent mold while keeping it fresh for longer. 

What is the ideal environment in a cannabis humidor?

We recommend creating an environment in the cannabis humidor where the humidity is within the range of 55%-65%. For temperature, we recommend maintaining a temperature of no more than 77 degrees Fahrenheit. 

How humid should I keep a cannabis humidor?

We recommend creating an environment in the cannabis humidor where the humidity is within the range of 55%-65%. Any more humid and you may run the risk of encountering mold or other harmful bacteria on your bud. 

What is the best material for a cannabis humidor?

Materials such as mahogany or cherry are porous wood and work well to absorb excess moisture within the humidor. This said, the same cedar woods that are used in cigar humidors work extremely well for cannabis humidors, as they do not impact the flavor of the bud while maintaining proper humidity levels.
