Grove Bags with TerpLoc® technology, featuring fully opaque bags to further inhibit light degradation, are meticulously crafted with a deep understanding of various herbs and buds' distinctive characteristics. These bags preserve weight, inhibit mold growth, and maintain complex terpene profiles. When your herbs are securely sealed inside, the Grove Bags with TerpLoc® come into play, actively mitigating unwanted gases and water vapor. They maintain a balanced microclimate with a relative humidity of 58-62%, effectively limiting oxidation and providing a shield against harmful UV rays.
Grove Bags with TerpLoc® embody six critical aspects of product protection: resilience, odor containment, oxygen regulation, anti-static features, humidity control, and UV resistance. Upon contact with your herbs' inherent moisture, the TerpLoc® film becomes activated. Its carefully calibrated permeability lets your product mature optimally, guaranteeing freshness during extended storage periods and eliminating the need for 'burping' jars.
Every Grove Bag with TerpLoc® includes:
- Superior TerpLoc® protection
- Durable standard zipper closure
- No-Burp Aging Process
- Wide, gusseted bottom to avert bud deformation
- Eco-friendly, recyclable design
- For optional viewing windows, visit our the Windowed Grove Bags listing.
- Opaque Pouches are also available with a Child Resistant Zipper.
Preserving the freshness of herbs from harvest until a consumer opens the bag at home is a challenge. Grove Bags exchanged insights with SkyHigh Systems, an innovative aeroponic herb company based in Michigan. They highlighted how the early adoption of TerpLoc® technology facilitated them to consistently deliver fresh, top-quality buds to their patrons from their initial harvest.
Q: Is heat sealing necessary for Grove Bags?
A: While heat sealing isn't mandatory, it enhances the effectiveness of Grove Bags. Heat sealing ensures that terpenes, which may leak from the zipper, remain inside the bag, optimizing the preservation process. For a side-by-side comparison, try a six-month cure test using both heat-sealed and non-heat-sealed Grove Bags.
Q: Should I remove excess air from a Grove Bag before sealing?
A: No. Unlike regular plastic bags, Grove Bags, with their TerpLoc technology, don't require you to squeeze out excess air. Leaving about 25% of the bag empty ensures optimal curing and preservation of the flower's quality.
Q: Can I reuse Grove Bags?
A: Yes. Grove Bags are durable and designed for multiple uses. Although UV protectant and anti-static features diminish over time, other essential features remain intact. Properly stored in a dark room, they can last for years.
Q: What sets Grove Bags apart from other bags?
A: Grove Bags use TerpLoc technology, which offers features like durability, odor and oxygen control, humidity management, anti-static properties, and UV protection. This technology ensures optimal curing conditions, preserving the flower's quality and preventing mold formation.
Q: When should I place my flowers in a Grove Bag?
A: Only dry flowers should be placed in Grove Bags. The moisture content should be between 10-12%. You can measure this with a moisture meter. This ensures the bag can maintain a humidity level between 58% and 62%.
Q: How should I store Grove Bags?
A: After leaving around 25% of the bag empty, heat seal it. Although they offer UV protection, storing them in a dim room at about 60 degrees yields the best results. These bags can preserve cannabis effectively for over a year.
Q: How do glassless Grove Bags differ from other variants?
A: Glassless Grove Bags have a full-window design and a unique gusset print, offering enhanced stability. Unlike other bags, it features a five-track zipper suitable for frequent usage.
Q: Why were Grove Bags created?
A: Grove Bags aim to simplify and improve the traditional methods of curing and storing cannabis. They negate the need for dedicated cure rooms, burping, and cumbersome jars. It's not just a container but a holistic preservation solution.
Q: What does DOOAHU represent?
A: DOOAHU stands for the six primary features of TerpLoc technology: Durability, Odor control, Oxygen diffusion, Anti-static, Humidity control, and UV protection.
Q: Do I need humidity packs with Grove Bags?
A: No. If the moisture content of the flower is between 10-12%, humidity packs aren't necessary. If the content is too low, add a fresh cannabis fan leaf to balance the moisture.
Q: What zipper options do Grove Bags offer?
A: Three types: single track (ideal for dispensary sales), five-track and CR (Child Resistant) zippers, both designed for frequent use. The CR zipper offers the most robust seal.
Q: How does the passive atmospheric packaging of TerpLoc function?
A: TerpLoc controls the rate of respiration inside the bag, slowing down potential chemical changes and promoting the development of terpenes and cannabinoids. Proper headspace in the bag is crucial for this process.
Q: How does TerpLoc enhance terpene polymerization?
A: TerpLoc creates an ideal environment during curing, promoting polymerization, where terpenes combine and develop a richer profile, making the flower stand out.
Q: Is there a visible quality difference in flowers stored using TerpLoc technology?
A: Yes. Flowers stored in Grove Bags often exhibit dense trichomes and maintain their original quality, giving them a distinct shimmer compared to other storage methods.
Q: How does TerpLoc ensure trichomes' preservation?
A: TerpLoc effectively protects fragile trichomes from degradation, ensuring the flower retains its natural shimmer and quality.
Q: How does TerpLoc combat mold?
A: By regulating the bag's environment, TerpLoc prevents mold as long as the flower's moisture content is appropriate and the bag is properly sealed.
Q: Where are Grove Bags manufactured?
A: They are entirely made in Ohio, USA.
Q: Are Grove Bags biodegradable?
A: While they're reusable, they aren't currently biodegradable. However, the company aims to incorporate hemp-based plastics in the future.
Q: How can I maximize the benefits of Grove Bags?
A: Ensure your cannabis is adequately dry before sealing the bag. Once dry, heat seal and store in a cool, dark room. Humidity packets or oxygen scrubbers aren't needed.
Q: Are Grove Bags odor-proof?
A: Yes. The bags effectively retain the flower's scent, ensuring discretion and compliance.
Q: When is the ideal time to use a Grove Bag?
A: Grove Bags are best used from curing to consumption. They don't need burping during curing, and the headspace pressure will naturally build up in the bag. They also enhance the cannabis shelf life.
