Boveda Humidity Control Packs
How Boveda Works
Scientifically engineered to maintain a precise relative humidity in an enclosed space, and available in multiple RH levels.
Boveda will never humidify beyond the RH on the pack, so there's no such thing as "too much". You want to think in terms of using at least the minimum because the more you use, the more efficient Boveda works and the longer they last. You'll know it's time to replace when the entire Boveda begins turning hard.
Simply place the correct number of Boveda inside your container to maintain a precise relative humidity. Each Boveda consists of a specially prepared saturated solution of pure water and natural salt. This saturated solution is contained within a water-vapor permeable "reverse osmosis" membrane. Within a closed container Boveda maintains a predetermined level of (RH) by releasing or absorbing purified water-vapor, as needed, through the membrane.
Boveda provides the cleanest and most purified humidity of all other products available on the market today.
Note: Do not mix Boveda RH levels within the same container, and do not use Boveda in the same container with other humidification products. They will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda.
Boveda Humidity Packs come in 2 RH levels, 58% and 62%. Both levels will work just fine for your product and it is simply about preference of moisture levels. Find what works best for you! Use the size chart here to help determine what pack size you need.

Boveda 2-Way Humidity Control Packs Questions & Answers
Why do I feel small crystals or hard lumps inside my Boveda?
Our formulas are a saturated salt solution which means an excess amount of blended salts are mixed with water and dispensed into the pouches you receive. From time to time some crystals form during the blending and filling process. This is normal and inherent of salts physical structure but also unavoidable. Although crystals will form, they do not impact the performance of Boveda and are completely safe to use. If the crystals have become too sharp, and in the rare instance puncture the pouch, please notify Boveda and we will replace them at no cost.
Can I mix Boveda relative humidity percentages?
No you can’t. Do not mix Boveda RH levels within the same humidor, and do not use Boveda in the same humidor with other humidification products. They will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda.
How can I maximize the life of Boveda?
Choose the largest Boveda that fits in your container. You can never use “too much” Boveda. Use more Boveda than the minimum recommended. Think about upping the number of Boveda you use in your container if it’s in an extreme climate (desert-dry or rainforest-like) or when it’s exposed to seasonal humidity swings. Close your container once you remove your herbal medicine. The more you expose Boveda to air, the harder it has to work and the shorter it lasts.
How do I store Boveda that I am not using?
Boveda has a 2-year shelf life in the original packaging. If you no longer have the original package, it is best to use a airtight container with a strong moisture seal. For example, a Boveda humidor bag or Tupperware®, glass and metal containers with a rubber seals.
When do I replace my Boveda?
Boveda will solidify as they expire. When there aren’t many soft spots left, then you’ll want to replace them. Pronounced crystallization and hardening of the corners first is completely normal and a part of the usage process. You can expect 2–6 months of usage life depending on the container and external environment.
Will Boveda over-humidify my herb?
Never. Boveda is the only product in the world that knows when to stop adding moisture and won’t humidify beyond the RH on the front of the Boveda, so there is no such thing as “too much”. Using more than recommended will just work more efficiently and last longer.
Boveda 2-Way Humidity Control Packs Reviews
- Old herb
This helped bring in moisture to my last year's crop that was not stored properly. No weird smells or excess moisture. These things are well worth the money.
