How the Integra Boost Works:
When you’re growing beneficial herbs, such as lavender or sage, the final stages are some of the most important. Drying and curing your materials allows chlorophyll within the plant to decompose (and the bi-products of this process to also break down). This dramatically intensifies flavours and aromas, increasing potency. When cured correctly, your plant materials will have more overall appeal, so it’s an important step that shouldn’t be skipped.
Up to now, the trickiest part of this process has been maintaining the right conditions for optimal curing, and that’s where Integra Boost packs come in. These little pouches are made with two-way humidity regulators – when you put one in your curing jar, it will remove excess moisture as needed. However, if the inside of the jar is too dry, the Integra will actually release moisture, keeping humidity levels at the level specified on the packet.
Other curing packs on the market do a similar job, but, unfortunately, many of them come with an unwanted side effect: they can destroy the smell of your end-product – exactly what you don’t want! That's why it's important to choose a brand like Integra, which has no negative impact whatsoever.
Integra Boosts are available with two humidity levels: 55% and 62%. That’s because the sweet spot for curing is generally 55% to 62%. So far, feedback has suggested that the 55% versions have had the best impact for our customers, but many people may for 62% versions. Both are considered to be within the ideal range.
You’ll notice that these pouches come with an indicator card, which should be placed in the jar or curing bag along with the Boost sachet. The indicator card has a dot on the front that changes colour. When it turns blue, you’ll need to replace your Boost sachet.
