If you’re a bit of a cannaseur yourself, then you may know how humidity affects the freshness and aroma of your bud. The team over at Cannador has worked hard to create the ideal atmosphere for precisely that.

Review: Cannador Humidor
How it Works
Using a humidor isn’t exactly rocket science. Depending on the size of the Cannador you have, you’ll get different amounts of jars. Fill the jars with your respective herbs and use the nifty little-slotted lids to control how much air you want going to your herbs.
There are two ways to humidify your herbs in the Cannador either with vapor beads, which are cool little high absorbent beads that can be reused and hold the proper relative humidity. The only problem with vapor beads is that too much moisture and they can form mold. The other option for keeping your herbs fresh in the Cannador is Boveda humidity packs, which I personally prefer.
You will want to season your Cannador before using, just simply use a clean cloth and distilled water and gently wipe the inside of the box, making it easier for the wood to accept the humidity.
If you opt for the Blustream Hygrometer, then you’ll also be able to monitor the humidity and temperature with the respective smartphone app.
The pictures don’t do it justice. Beautifully crafted and precisely made, it adds a touch of elegance to the entire experience. It feels sturdy, strong, weighty and reliable. Each bezel and joint was skillfully worked and the expertise really shows.
Surely you expect top-notch build quality at this price point, and the Cannador definitely doesn’t disappoint. As the old saying goes: You get what you pay for
The addition of a lock also gives you peace of mind, especially if you have people you don’t want around your stash like children or nosy friends.
I really like the magnet on the inside of the lid that can hold your vapor beads and humidity packs and even the jars are high quality. They even provide you with airtight lids in case you want to remove your herbs for a weekend and keep them fresh on the go.
Ease of Use
Of course, the Cannador isn’t exactly what you consider to be difficult to use, the hardest part is the initial setup and seasoning. Once your moisture packs are set and the humidor has been seasoned, which will take about 3 days, it’s as simple as monitoring your humidity levels and filling the box with your collection of herbs.
Some versions of the Cannador even feature extra storage slots for the rest of your herbal accessories..
It does what it advertises! It keeps you bud fresh and at the perfect humidity. While some say there’s not much difference in herb stored at different humidities, it’s hard to deny it didn’t have an effect on the flavor and scent. I could definitely taste the full profile of my herbs from my Utillian 721.
The terpene profile is better preserved leaving you with a very rich end product and an overall more enjoyable experience. Not to mention your herbs don’t over dry to the point where it turns to dust.
The double baffle also works well at keeping humidity in and any odor from escaping the confines of the humidor. A nice feature of course for those who don’t like their room smelling of pungent herb all the time.
For those who enjoy the ‘ritual’ of vaporizing or smoking their herb, it adds a nice touch and makes the experience feel even more special. It’s a much fancier alternative to stuffing a mason jar with humidity packs!
If you’re someone who deeply enjoys the flavor and aroma of boutique herb, then the Cannador Humidor will definitely bump that up a notch! It’s not a must-have item by any means, however, if you have the cash to spend and really want to spoil yourself, you won’t be going wrong with this wonderfully crafted humidor!
