Integra VS Boveda

#1
Hey Guys,

With some input from the community, we're starting to look more in to the 2-way humidifier packs to keep the quality of our product at its peak while in transit across the country.

Full disclosure, this isn't something we're the most familiar with. So i'm wondering what you guys have found between the 2 big ones, Boveda and Integra. As well as what "level" you think would be sufficient for us based on the product we offer.

We're constantly learning and tweaking to improve. Definitely appreciate the support you guys have given us while we grow.

You want 62%, this is pretty much the level most people agree is best for weed. I prefer a bit more humidity, some prefer less, so it's the kind of things that can be user preference. I'd at least get big 62% for your own stock, then perhaps have users chose whether or not they want humidity packs. If you do pre-packaging, I would definitely put a pack with each prepacked bag, most people will prefer that to nothing at all.

The whole boveda vs integra debate has no clear winner, but either is better than nothing for sure. I've been rolling with bovedas for a year, but I've had a few integras with orders and I must admit integras seem more reliable. I've had a few bovedas that didn't really work, they only seemed to suck humidity and not give back. They were from a 20 pack I bought, prepackaged from the company, so likely all made on the same day, yet some work really well, others not much if at all. The few integras I've had seem consistent.

I've just received a 25 pack of integras I'll be using from now on. I'll report back in a few weeks I guess.

Yeah it'll work but it'll dry up faster, just wanted to put it out there for others reading it. I've been using 67 gram ones in my 250ml jars with quarters :) Call it overkill, but they're over a year old and no sign of drying up!

I use bovedas for 3 days and then remove completely, my preference..

Honestly my first venture into humidity packs was with Integra so I prefered them for a while, then I tried Boveda, and after that I started stumbling upon stories that Boveda "robbed" terps. I have not really found that to be true. Both will affect the vollatility of terps, which is not a bad thing, it means your terps are less airborne and stay with your flower. The effect on the nose might make your flower les odorant, but it's because those terps are on the flower, not in the ambient air.
Now, I have no preference between Integra or Boveda, either would be a nice addition to a flower order. I do prefer Boveda for long-term storing, and Integra for a quick refresh of some dry flower.
