Developed by Freshstor technologies, the CVault is designed to be a highly durable storage system for your herbs. The CVault line of stash cases comes in a number of different sizes, and for purposes of this review I will be looking at the small, medium, and large varieties (which are the most popular). The CVault promises to keep your bud fresh using three different mechanisms (airtight seal, humidpak, and lightproofing). Since I always get strong smelling herbs, I wanted to see how well the smell would be contained.
Upon initial inspection of the CVault, I noticed that it is manufactured with durable stainless steel. There was a rubber seal present designed to lock in moisture, and three clamps to help seal your bud in nice and fresh. Apparently the CVault uses a food-grade seal, and it appears to be quite durable. Inside the CVault is a space for a humidipak (to maintain 62% humidity) and it designed to keep your bud from drying out. I left some bud in one of the cases, and when I came back a week later I was pleased to see that the bud was just as fresh as when I left it! The instructions say to replace the humidipak every few months once it begins to solidify (a replacement pak costs about $1.80).
Upon placing some bud into the CVaults, I tried doing a smell test to notice if I could pick up any hint of bud. After being unable to detect any aromas, I handed some of my friends the CVault, and they were also unable to detect what was being stored inside. The smaller case could comfortably fit about 12 grams of herb, whereas the medium and large vaults could hold about 21 grams and an ounce respectively.
Overall, I was quite impressed with the CVault as a travel case. Not only are they much more durable than my old mason jar, but it also keeps my bud fresh and ready for use without smelling up an entire room. I like using the large version for at home use and take the small size with me while I’m on the go.
