Why Drying Rooms Need Humidity Control?
- Avoid Dew Point Condensation and High Humidity
- Prevent Molds (such as bud rot)
- Improve Product Quality
The Challenge of Humidity in Drying Rooms
Drying rooms need to remove massive amounts of moisture in a short period of time.
When large amounts of produce enter the drying room, there’s a huge spike in humidity. Post-harvest buds still contain approximately 80% water, which needs to be removed quickly, before molds begin to develop.
Ideal Drying Room Conditions for Cannabis
Maintaining these conditions ensures mold-free, homogenous, dry cannabis:
- 50-60% relative humidity
- No direct light
- Air circulation to maintain homogenous conditions
