You might like these. They're little terra cotta stones you soak in distilled water. Good if you like low tech fixes like orange peels.
I have a few of these they work pretty good. 1 saturated stone in your weed jar for half an hour brings it right back to fresh.
These things do the job of the paper towel. I love them. I have a larger version for my brown sugar container too.
You could also use a tobacco humidifier, that is basically the same thing but seems to be much cheaper on amazon.
Even better if you combine the two, hydrate the stone and put it in with a pack. The pack will maintain a consistent humidity level absorbing and releasing as it needs to also preventing your buds from becoming too moist. You can also use this to revive old hydration packs I just keep a jar around with all my old bovedas and a brown sugar bear, soak it about once every few weeks once it seems like the packs are not getting properly squishy
Also just go to a kitchen supply store and buy a stone meant for brown sugar. They mark those Dewbie stones way up because marketing but they're the exact same thing, can generally find them for around 2-4$ instead of 8$. Also apparently the ones from RAW are really reasonable as I just found out only 3.41$CAD each for this pack of 3 I found.
Terracotta Humidifier buttons.
if youre bud is SUPER dry you can get a humidifying stone stone to pump some moisture back into the buds
this or literally a broken piece of a terra cotta planter
U could also try terracotta hydrostone thingies. USE DISTILLED WATER THO. Normal water can effect the tobaccos taste, as well as make it mold easy. U could go the ghetto route too n soak a tiny piece of paper towel w distilled water, throw it in a corner of a knotted sandwich bag, poke some tiny holes in it, and use that, just to b quick n dirty if u didn't want to wait for an online order. As someone else said, the two-way propylene glycol packs like Boveda or Integra Boost work too. I wouldn't go above the 65% rh ones tho.
These r what I use, they work great.
I agree with this, great diy tip. Not really diy but those raw stones have worked great for me (sometimes to good if you're not careful and forget) and are reusable. You can find them here probably cheaper if you search.

Are you rehydrating at all before pressing the flower? Moisture is very important for solid yields and a factor in getting a good consistency on the rosin. If not I highly suggest picking up a few raw hydrostones or an offbrand version. Basically they are just pieces of terracotta clay that you soak in water for 5 minutes then throw into the container with your bud for anywhere between an hour up to 4 hours. It varies depending on how much bud you are rehydrating, how dry it is to start and how moist you want the flower. For pressing I’ve heard it’s best to get it to the point where there’s a slight bend in the stem. So it no longer clean snaps. Doesn’t have to be super bendy just not a clean, crisp snap.
This is all info I’ve learned through watching others rosin press on YouTube. So take everything I said with a that context added. I do however own hydrostones for when I get some dry bud. Makes it smoke so much better when you bring it up to that proper moisture level. Definitely scoop some up I think they’ll help you a lot if your not already using them. Then if yields are still low then moisture isn’t the reason and it’s either time, amount of heat, amount of pressure or the strain. But since you pressed that melonade and got a decent result I’d be willing to bet this gleaf was pretty dry.

I keep a couple of these handy
A few hours and most weed will recoup 10% of their weight
Hydrostone ftw! Don't keep it in longer than 10 minutes, it will steal terps and replace them with the scent of terracotta.
I rehydrate depending on dryness then throw in a small boost/boveda pack for long term storage. It's worked wonders for me so far!
Aumentar a umidade relativa do ar no recipiente onde ele está pode tornar sua experiência mais agradável.
Hoje em dia eu uso pacotes de boveda (sílica gel) para controlar a umidade, e esses pacotes conseguem absover ou soltar umidade para o ambiente.
Mas ja usei um algodão umidecido para hidratar, sei que existem discos de terracota que são vendidos para essa finalidade, com o algodão eu tomava o cuidado de não deixar ele pingando de molhado e não encostava na matéria orgânica.
Aside from what's been already said, new lids, clean seal, crank em down etc, u can try re-humidifing the tobacco. Be sure to use distilled water (like u would w cigar humidor) bc normal water can cause mold and alter the taste of tobacco. I personally use these lil terracotta puck stone things, they make larger ones as well for brown sugar bags to prevent it from hardening. Beyond that there are the two-way propylene glycol based humidity packs like Boveda, Integra Boost, etc. Imo for long term storage use the 62% rh ones, and I wouldn't go above the 65% rh packets. The silver metal clay filled pucks w holes in em u see for $2 r garbage imo, I don't recommend em.
Here's a link to the lil terracotta pucks I use, I think they work great. Again, b sure to use distilled water w em. [link]
these hydrostones work well
You can pick them up usually at a head shop too. Raw makes a circular one that is perfect. Hydrostone Terracotta Humidifying Stone (3 Pack) [link]
I’m not sure if you are monitoring the humidity but you should also invest in these so you can know exactly what you are looking at as far as RH in your jars

I've heard good things about this. https://www.amazon.com/RAW-Hydrostone-Natural-Terracotta-Humidifying/dp/B00HFZE6G2
Buy some Raw Hydrostones. They’re what I use to rehydrate before pressing flower.
These have worked so good. If you can, buy one and rehydrate your flower. Also put one of those humidity pack at the same time and be blown away in 24hrs.
Always keep a few of these around for when I don't have a boveda
One of the best buys you'll ever make.
Haha really? Crazy.. I know "Raw" makes those little round clay terracotta things that you can put water on and place in a jar or bud as well.. [link]
Just throw a pouch or the stones by RAW from amazon to freshen it up a bit, I prefer the stones because you can use them over and over..
I recommend something like this to re-hydrate if required.

Un boveda/boost ou n'importe qu'elle est pas fait pour humidifier rien c'est juste pour garder le controle de l'humidité déjà présente. Si tu veux de quoi pour vraiment humidifer un pot trop sec utilise ceci: https://www.amazon.ca/RAW-Hydrostone-Natural-Terracotta-Humidifying/dp/B00HFZE6G2 ca prends pas des heures ou la nuit en plus, 15-20 minutes pis ton weed est revenu presque parfait.
Which other brands did you try? I saw RAW hydrostone on amazon and ordered some to try with snus but idk about flavor yet
Dry Boveda packs can be reconstituted by placing in a jar with a terracotta disk like this one by Raw called a hydrostone xx

[[link] on amazon man)
apparently these are good for really dry herb, just throw it in your stash for a little bit (not too long or it'll get moldy) and you should be good to go
Buy a RAW hydrostone.
Order some Raw humidifying stones. They are a couple bucks. They are just little half dollar sized tera cotta discs that you soak in water for a few minutes and then place them in the container with the herb. Those things work wonders and they will last forever
Edit: Sorry I kind of skimmed what you said. For some reason i thought you were talking about your flower being too dry, i don't know why. What I posted is mostly for that.
"Curing" it won't do anything at this point for you. It has to be done after harvest and directly after you reach a certain point in the drying process. Once the relative humidity of your flower goes below about 60% curing will no longer work, even if you rehydrate and bring it back up. Kind of going past the point of no return. So you don't have to worry about curing anything unless you are growing it yourself.
Boveda Packs are good for longer term storage and helping a cure but if you are going to be consuming it fairly quickly i wouldn't worry about those either.
