Wouldn’t be hard to do some side by side testing.

I have used them for a couple of years and not noticed any odd tastes or reduced flavours.

I use bovedas after drying and haven’t noticed a loss of anything. Once the humidistat in the jar holds 58%-62% for 48hrs without opening the jar, I pop in a boveda62 and pretty much forget about it. Boveda is a 5 star product, imo.

Same. I can't help thinking it would be easy to make Boveda the scapegoat for poorly grown/dried/cured weed. Which would have tasted like ass anyway.

That's my point. It's not the boveda. There's something else going on.

A sour or vinegary flavor is bacterial. There's enough moisture for bacteria but not for mold or rot. There may be no visible evidence.

What do ya think about
Maybe dried quick and rehydrated with boveda?
Cud cause the weird smells or taste

Patience is a virtue. It is not the destination its a journey! Boveda is there to bring down (slightly, read slightly moist) not re-humidify it. It will keep the jar @ 62% keeping things in balance. e.g currently it is winter here. Humidity is at 23% (common). When you open a jar, ambient air enters said jar. There is no doubt in this mind anyway, that the hygrometer will read lower than 62, by a % or 2 and be at 62% the following day.

drying 7-10 days
curing 6-8 weeks

I see the junk recommended so much, like, damn how can you think it's an improvement or remotely necessary.. Does anyone understand dank anymore? In my experience it turned a delicious UK Cheese into some tasteless vinegary smelling airy poop overnight.

I thought it was just dispensaries growing bullshit these days but looking online it seems everyone has lost the concept of loud sticky delicious dank. Moisture content for a slow burn has become more important than resin content.

Same people who keep their bud with broveda packs use Terpenez for that fake e-cig scent and call it an improvement rather than a ruined tainted harvest. Really shows what kind of garbage they are growing.

Sorry but your growing some really bad product if you use Broveda. Probably hydroponic and pretending moisture content is resin content. They even sell these stupid moisture packs at dispensaries now and people claim it turns dry tasteless unflushed crumble weed into loud sticky dank. Flexible reality of placebo people. Pretty scary honestly. Its ruined quality standards in the southwest.
Your grammar and spelling are as poor as your opinion.

Went to a cannabis expo in Paris, Cannabis Europa and I talked with some producers of swiss CBD herb. They also told me that Boveda influences taste and aroma in a negative way. Boveda contacted them and gave them samples. They tested it and then declined to make orders at boveda for their operation. So I am not the only one. As I see it now, if you want good quality don't use boveda. If you want weed with a perfect moisture content (without skills) then use boveda. I still will do a new documented side by side and post it here as soon as I can grow again. I am not against boveda, I really like the concept. But I also know quality and boveda never gave me quality, it ruined it.
