by stick about October 12, 2017 - report

I'm sure this has been covered but other than vaccum sealing I can't find it...Have any of you used CVault containers? Do you like them? are they woth the cost?..I've been looking at them ever since my mason jar got flooded and turned most all of my seeds into a mas of cannabis sprouts for my salad. Man they are pricy.....

    Dude just get one. Get a large at least. The 8 or 9 liter holds quite a bit. I have no idea what these problems others are having. I've been using them for over a year and when I open them up it smells as fresh as the day I put it in there. And a perfect 62%. There's nothing to back up what some are saying about absorbing terpenes. All my cigar boxes come with the humidity packs and trust me the smell is still there.

      Look it's a sealed stainless steel container. The lid has a rubber gasket and zero smell escapes. Zero. If you don't want to use the packs that's ok. It's a stainless steel mason jar basically. No smell gets out and no light gets in. And if you get one la...  more

    I just put in  quart mason jars - used to use "boveda" packs  ( they do keep RH at 55% but destroy all terpene's and essential oils)  DO NOT USE -No boost packs  either. Many members use CVault's and like them. sure thay can help !! Vacume sealing is great for long term storage. Some folks keep marijuana in the ice box (in crisper) and for long term some freeze in vacum bags Gues it depend on how long you want to storge it -  PESCE !!!!!!!!!

      I guess I'll have to do the "with and without test" with Boveda's,see for myself what you say about the terpene's and essential oils because I have them in all my Mason Jars. I had never heard this before.. Lots of people use them. They keep the...  more

      Yep I'd like to see some documentation that boveda does in fact destroy all terpene's and essential oils. All my jars have them as well.

      @FREE Yea I've got two cases of Mason Jars with Meds. Unfortunately the one with over 100 seeds leaked enough water to make salad.(the glass cracked in the storm).

    Been curing in a large cvault for nearly a month, and when I open the top, it smells like a cvault, not weed.  I moved my buds to a mason jar and the smell is slowly coming back.  Might be better to cure in mason jars and then move to cvault for long term storage.  Just been my experience with them so far.

      It may be the Stainless steel the Cvault is made out of. I know if you get Onion on your hands you can remove the smell by rubbing your hands on a stainless steel sink....

    You can use CVault containers, and they work great, but if you don't want to spend that kind of money you can just use good air tight mason or ball jars with humidity packs in them for long term storage. I have some that has been stored this way for over a year. The weed still looks, smells and tastes good as when it was first cured. I use the 62% packs myself, and i have not had any issues with loss of smell and taste. I have also not had any mold issues using these packs. Peace
