67% of Denver Cannabis Customers are Being Ripped Off


In Boveda’s ongoing effort to educate the cannabis world about how parched flower devastates cannabis quality, we uncovered something even more striking:

Imagine if you bought a dozen eggs and 4 were missing. What if those eggs were buds? Cannabis shortchanging is happening to some Colorado consumers and Boveda wants you to be on high alert.

We’re giving cannabis retailers the benefit of the doubt. Or rather, the benefit of thinking they can predict how much moisture will evaporate from a particular package of cannabis and when that particular package will be sold. Soothsayers are they!

In every legal cannabis city, we sent secret shoppers to dispensaries, which were selling cannabis without Boveda.
  • The shoppers bought flower right off the shelf. (It’s a hard job, but someone had to do it.)
  • The shoppers then hightailed that cannabis to an undisclosed hotel room. (How covert!)
  • Using specialized moisture testing equipment and a scale, we quantified the effects of not packaging flower with Boveda’s 2-way humidity control.


Without Boveda, how much cannabis came up short in Colorado?:

  • 67% of prepackaged flower sold in Colorado was underweight.
  • 75% of flower at a single chain was underweight
  • The average container was light by 22%
  • The worst offender was light by 40%


When you buy cannabis who can you trust?

We’re not going to name names. Just be aware that when cannabis brands “pack heavy,” dry air removes quality and value out of virtually every type of packaging.
So how has the cannabis industry gotten away with leaving flower to the mercy of the terpene-destroying conditions in Colorado? Strong demand. Cultivators are able to sell nearly everything they grow, no matter the condition of the flower.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be like this. A Boveda in every jar and container solves the problem of over drying. Boveda adds (add removes) just the right amount of moisture to lock in a precise relative humidity (RH) level that’s perfect for cannabis. Storing buds with Boveda maximizes the quality and efficacy of cannabis. And now Boveda ensures fairness in flower transactions, too.

Might it be time to start weighing your purchases? Or at least, weighing your dispensary choice.
Does your dispensary protect your buds with Boveda?
