    FAQ



    WHAT IS BOOST?
    INTEGRA BOOST uses patent pending technology that releases or absorbs moisture, maintaining relative humidity at 55 or 62 percentin a contained environment.
    WHY USE BOOST?
    Integra Boost will prevent over drying and mold growth by achieving the R.H. level at 55% or 62%.
    You will maintain and enhance color, aroma, flavor
    and overall quality of your plants.
    • We offer a Salt-Free Solution.
    • Our Boost Packs will not alter your plant’sflavor or aromas.
    • Includes replacement indicator for hands free monitoring.
    • Our Product is Tear Resistant & Spill Proof. It stays pliable reducing risk of tear and spills.
    • We include Replacement Indicator Cards also know as Humidity Indicator Cards. It's a hands-free way of monitoring, so there’s no guessing game as to when the product is used up. Packs do not get hard and there is no need to open jars to "FEEL" the pack.
    • Package is made with Food Grade Inks
    • We are also the only company to offer humidity Regulator Packs at 55% RH.
    WHY 55%RH and 62%RH PACKS?
    When the R.H. is below 55%, you don’t have enough moisture. This will cause your cannabis to dry out and turn brittle, making them unpleasant to smoke. Dryness will also lessen its potency and weight.

    When the r.h. is above 62%, you have too much moisture that can lead to the growth of dangerous bacteria, such as mold, mildew, and fungus.
    The difference between the 55%rh and 62%rh are the humidity levels. 55% adds less moisture and 62% allows for more moisture. Some consumers have favored a slightly drier environment, with an RH as low as 55%. It all depends on your personal preferences and how long you intend to hold onto a given strain. They are both safe levels because they are both within the "ideal range".
    HOW DO I USE BOOST?
    Boost is easy to use, just follow our simple instructions on How to Boost!
    WHAT SIZE DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR THE AMOUNT OF PLANTS I HAVE?
    • up to 12grams of plants,use 4grams of Integra Boost®
    • 12grams - 28grams of plants, use 8grams of Integra Boost®
    • up to 450 grams of plants, use 67grams of Integra Boost®
    CAN I USE MORE THAN ONE PACK IN A CONTAINER?
    Yes. There is no harm in using multiple packs to introduce moisture faster. Boost® packs will adapt and respond accordingly.
    HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO REPLACE MY BOOST?
    With every Boost pack includes a replacement indicator card for accurately reading of humidity levels and hands free monitoring.
    The Replacement Indicator Card allow you to know when it's time to replace your pack, without having to open your container and feel for a pack, and without having to dump out your plant to reach the humidity pack.
    When the dot turns blue, it's time to replace the pack, eliminating the guessing game!
    HOW DO I READ THE REPLACEMENT INDICATOR CARD?
    • The cards used with 62% Boost will have a pink dot.
    • The cards used with 55% Boost will have a lavender dot.
    Regulating occurs when new air is introduced. Seal the lid and dot will react to humidity.
    The dot will turn blue, when it’s time to replace pack. Watch for more info.
    I JUST GOT MY PACK AND REPLACEMENT INDICATING CARD, WHY IS MY REPLACEMENT INDICATOR CARD DOT BLUE?
    If your plant is too dry, Boost® is releasing more moisture into the product, therefore the indicator will react towards the blue, until your entire product is hydrated.
    Also, if you are opening and closing the container often, while trying to hydrate your plant, new moisture is constantly entering the container, which will keep the dot blue.
    Just allow a day or 2 for Boost do it’s job and the replacement indicator should stabilize back to it’s proper color.
    WHAT INGREDIENT DOES THE BOOST PACK CONTAIN?
    • A propriety mix of glycerin, gelatin, and water.
    HOW LONG DOES BOOST LAST?
    Each Boost is individually over wrapped preventing it from activation. The Shelf life is 2 years from manufactured date.

    Once activated, the product life span varies depending on different variables from a couple of months to up to a year.However, please consider these factors:
    • how often the jar is being opened and closed (new air/humidity is being introduced and the pack will adapt and regulate using more of its contents to re-adjust).
    • Therefore, due to the constant opening and closing of jars, some may go through the Boost packs quicker than others.
    • Also, if the plant is very dry, this will cause the packs to work harder to introduce more moisture.
    IS IT SAFE FOR BOOST TO TOUCH MY MEDICINE/PLANT?

    Yes!
    • Package is made with Food Grade Inks so it is safe to touch your plants
    WHAT ROLE DOES BOOST PLAY IN THE CURING PROCESS?
    You may introduce our packets once the plant is at its preferred humidity level (again this is a preference), our packs will help maintain humidity at either 55%rh or 62%rh.

    Everyone has their own way of curing, but here’s what we recommend.
    Firstly, dry it and jar it. Burpit twice a day for the first week, add boost pack, and burp it as needed. Burping is recommended with curing. However with storing it is not necessary.

    A Huge Thank You to the Crew at Integra Boost
    For supplying the gear for this test...and WOW, what a kit they provided!
    They have included 122 of the 62% packets.. Whoa!!! There is 50 of the 67gram packets and 72 of the 8 gram packets, imo, enough to fill a bunch of jars!!
    :worship:
    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg The box was shipped securely and was packed to the rim.. Integra Boost does include plenty of documentation to show how and why they work, how they can benefit the finished product, and when to replace.. image.jpeg
    I am a believer in Integra Boost and have used it consistently for the last year.. With this batch of flower,i was replacing some existing packs, i did use two 8 gram packs to ensure the humidity gets and stays in the right "zone".. An oversight by my local grow house and myself was the fact that i have not been using enough packets in my jars!!!!!!
    image.jpeg Here is the first four, ready for storage, or use

    This package took me completely off guard. 100_6111.JPG
    I'll be jarring a new harvest tonight, and adding these into a smaller harvest that went into jars earlier this week.
    I have used other RH products in the past, and have not been impressed at all. That being said, I've never used a liquid based product, so I have an open mind.
    First impressions are that the the packaging is amazing, and that including RH indicators with every individual package is both convenient and smart. I'll repeat that: both Convenient and Smart.
    I'll be checking the indicators for accuracy as well during this test.
    The fact that they sent 62% regulators tells me that they do understand the needs of the canna grower. That's a huge plus. Pictures to follow, but this will be done in brand new jars with both the 67 and 8 gram packs, in pint, quart and half gallon mason jars. I will also vary the amount of bud in each jar, from stuffed, to simply filled, half empty to not much left:yoinks:
    In the interest of full disclosure, I wasn't aware that I had used products from Integra before. Years ago I was production manager for a company that manufactured supplements for competitive horses, and while I can't be positive I'm 99% sure we used O2 removers from Integra to improve shelf life of our product. More on that later, but the results were spectacular.
    My thanks to Integra for their willingness to participate in a live test.

    What can I say to Integra? Me love you loooong time!

    Thank you so very much for the amazing package! Wow! I'm more than happy to put to use a lot of it right away! I'll be making a video later today when I add packs to all my jars. And I'll also put them to use on yesterday's harvest in about 4 to 5 days, when the buds make it to jars. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'll be adding the Boost packs to a couple of jars tonight, but why not kick thing off with and acid test?
    I'll be checking these every other day with a calibrated hydrometer to see how they're performing, and how long they last under extreme conditions.
    Quart jars, tightly sealed.
    !/2 cup of water, with 67 gr pack elevated above 100_6132.JPG 100_6133.JPG
    And same scenario, but with a 1/2 cup of table salt 100_6134.JPG

    Long video, but I went through every jar and will check daily for at least the first week, so we can see if there are variations, etc.

    After the first week or two, I'll do video updates weekly. I may make an experiment and bury some jars for a week and see what happens. If that works, I'll bury for two weeks, then 3, etc.

    That would be a great way to stash my pot, so I don't get paranoid about having too much at home.
