I also highly recommend getting these boveda packs I mentioned earlier and adding one to every eighth you buy. Weigh it before and after the packs been in for a bit (anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days) and you may be surprised to see how much weight you get back (not to mention flavor and enjoyment): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XB26Q8N?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
They're hydration packs you can get on Amazon!
You place them in a jar with your weed and it helps them to stay at the perfect moisture level. Prevents a harsh smoke and makes it burn slower.
I get them off Amazon, but they're about $20 for a ten pack. I usually get the 4-gram 62% packs (which can easily humidify up to a half oz).
You can also rehydrate your weed by putting it in a sealed jar with a small wad of wet paper towel for about 20 minutes, but it leaves a weird taste if you use tap water. Might work better if you use distilled water in that scenario.
I had to look up what Grove packs are. They look pretty fancy and seem to control humidity for you the same way as humidity packs.
This is what I use. They are two way, so they will absorb/give off humidity to keep it at the right amount. Couple humidity packs in Mason jars is all I do. I keep a humidity monitor in one to make sure the humidity doesn't get too high or too low.

I can't say 100% for sure if your bags are the same or if using the humidity packs would make a difference. From my little bit of reading, I don't think the humidity packs would change anything.
The humidity packs are reusable BTW. They are not cheap but since they are two way and obsorb humidity, you can rehydrate them.
>Hydration pack? What's that and please point me in the right direction.
They're two-way humidity control so they add or remove moisture to keep your herb at the perfect humidity. The two brands I usually see are Boveda and Boost. You want to look for 62% RH for cannabis (the other RHs work better for things like tobacco, etc.). Here's an example on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XB26Q8N?ref\_=cm\_sw\_r\_cp\_ud\_dp\_ABNHAP557KKFG3BKBF2W
Buy some boveda two-way 62% humidity packs. If above 62% humidity or below 62%, the pack will bring it back.
Don't you folks know about Boveda freshness packs??? https://smile.amazon.com/Boveda-Percent-2-Way-Humidity-Control/dp/B06XB26Q8N/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1Y95WS6XA4JC2&dchild=1&keywords=marijuana+freshness+packs&qid=1598389387&sprefix=marijuana+free%2Caps%2C212&sr=8-2
These are awesome - I put them in my buds after harvest, and in my pre-ground mix that I keep in a wide-mouth Ball jar.
Try Boveda humidification packs and you’ll never have to leave your bud in the hot hot heat ever again.
I pretty much live off of Amazon here’s the link -> Boveda for Herbal Storage | 62% RH 2-Way Humidity Control | Size 4 Protects Up to 1/2 Ounce (15 Grams) Flower | Prevent Terpene Loss Over Drying and Molding | 10-Count Resealable Bag https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XB26Q8N/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fab_qk2AFbZ1T7ND0
I got mine at Amazon... Smallest sized (4 gram, 2"x2" packet ea) 62% fits a 125 ml mason jar no problem.
You want a Boveda 62%:
If the humidity is too high (which can cause mold) it absorbs the moisture. If it's too low, it releases moisture. They work great.
Put one in each jar and the weed won't get dry or moldy.
You want a Boveda 62:
It adds moisture if the weed is dry, and sucks it up if it gets too moist - holds things right at 62%, which is perfect for weed.
Put a pack in with your stash, give it a couple days to equalize, and it'll be nice.
I hung dry by the limbs only removing larger leaves. Then I dry trimmed.
Stuffed them all into Mason jars with a Boveda 62 pack and didn't look back. The packs keep the humidity at 62% which is perfect for curing.
if you have time you could cancel your order on the OCS store and just order them off amazon: 4 gram 62%, 8 gram 58%
Add a Boveda packet to the container, your flower will become nice and fresh within 24h!
They're two way moisture packs.

Could've slapped my entire comment into google lazily and found it, but sure...
Yup, but weed will still be dry as a pharaoh's cough, boveda doesn't visibly improve it. Putting perfume on a pig doesn't turn it into a princess, you are looking at measurable improvment in vapor quality with bovedas, not transformation of mids into cup winning flower :).
With that said, I would pop a boveda into the jar 2-3 days before you start vaping from it. Rehydrating only takses that long, if you break the seal on the jar sooner you are just introducing whatever mould spores live in your home and moisture to feed them.
One exception is the grow strains that come in huge nugs, which should benefit from being broken up a little + boveda added to equalise mosture. IMO Big buds can rot from within if they are not very carefully dried and you can't guarantee that they are as an end-user.
I recommend humidity packs

this is the exact one I use for my containers which each hold an eighth of weed. you could use these in a larger jar too, but maybe get a bigger size pack so it will last longer:
I always buy mine off of amazon
Nice collection. Get some humidity packs to keep those buds fresh. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XB26Q8N/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
S&B Capsul Caddy: 3D-printed capsul holder that fits inside of a stash jar. It holds 24 caps. Caps load at ~.15g each, so 3.6g or close enought to an 1/8th. This is really what makes the caps a time saver and convenience - being able to 'meal prep' your weed.
Boveda 62% Packs: The 4g packs fit snugly inside the capsul caddy I use. Helps keep all that ground up herb from drying out. Which is great since I am a slow user.
Loading & Filling Set: I love the caps because I always have one ready to vape. When its time to load them, this is awesome. Fills 40 at once - but I just cover 16 holes to only fill the 24 if I'm prepping just an 8th I got. very useful.
Waterpipe Attachment: The Mighty is fantastic on its own; however, using it with a water pipe takes it to a different level. This attachment is great. If you don't like holding your Mighty upside down, you could also just attach a whip off the mouthpiece or adapter to your waterpipe. Look at homebrewing stores for food grade plastic tubing for cheap if you prefer a whip style attachment.
Glass Mouthpiece: Ok, maybe most wont consider it 'essential', but I prefer the feel of the glass mouth pieces. Really though, it is easier to fit a q-tip through when I clean (which I'll do after every use)
Mighty Stand: Nice 3D printed stand that snaps right onto the Mighty with cut outs for the pick and charging port. I haven't taken it off since I put it on.
Rest of my gear is just jars and cleaning stuff. Everclear with q-tips helps keep everything clean.
I've had nothing but good service with this company, although the product does come a bit dry. I'd reccomend buying some form of a humidifier packet online to prevent harshness which I've included below. 2 of those small packets for an oz or one for 7-14 grams.
