Icky was founded by three cannabis enthusiasts back in 2015 who decided that it was time to revolutionize the age-old combustion industry. Since then, Icky has developed a line of complementary products that include innovations on all sides. Their products are made with precision and experience.
Icky’s products have even been featured as Editor’s Choice of Dope Magazine and are even a favorite of the venerable Tommy Chong. I received the Icky Humidor for review and I was excited to finally have a humidity-controlled environment for my goodies. Icky’s slogan is “Keep it Sticky” and it’s time to find out just how true that is.
The Icky Humidor | 2-Tin in Natural comes in a compact box with foam padding on five sides. The humidor is made of cherry wood, measures 6 ¾” x 4 ¾” x 3 ¼” on the outside, and is perfectly flush on all sides. Opening the box reveals a storage area in the lid that holds the Boveda humidifying pack while the main compartment features two tins for you to keep loose flowers in.
I was able to comfortably fit an eighth in each of the tins, an Icky Stick, and a lighter in the back portion of the box and then still shut the Icky Humidor completely. When I smell the closed box, all I smell is the calming smell of stained wood - not any of the terpenes or resin stored inside. Additionally, none of the cannabinoids or terpenes stored inside the box will be degraded by UV light.
The Icky humidor is very well built - and I can see why Icky offers a lifetime warranty with the humidor, and I can also see myself never needing to call it in. It’s also important to note that this isn’t a plain ol’ storage box, the humidor will keep all of your products at the right humidity. I used it for cannabis flower, but the humidor is also a perfect fit for cigars and was meant for tobacco. While stale tobacco does suck, I personally hate stale cannabis even more.
Over the years, I’ve tried nearly a dozen types of citrus peels and varying temperatures in the fridge to try and keep my cannabis flower sticky and icky. Even though I eventually found the best type of citrus peel, it’s still impossible to know for sure what humidity storing your flower with a citrus peel will result in. Most people do it to get a “good enough” smoke and frankly aren’t even aware that you can make sure your nug is perfect every time.
That’s why the Icky box comes with a Boveda 62% pack that will last a few months depending on what your local hygrometer says. You’ll know the Boveda pack needs to be replaced once it is hard and rigid and no longer liquid inside like how it comes. I’ve always noticed that the flower starts to taste the same and feel the same as they dry out and get too much sun. I now store my most expensive eighths in the humidor so that they can remain primo for longer. This humidor is actually a great way to continue curing what you buy at the store - and I plan to do just that with the next batch of not-quite-there-yet that I come across.
For those that might not share Icky’s preference for 62% humidity, there are also Boveda packs with different humidity levels. Choose whatever is subjectively ideal to you, and you’ll never look back. It’s like that Christmas morning feeling whenever I open a tin of flower from the humidor because it smells, feels, and smokes just like new.
The Icky humidor will fit in a backpack and maybe even a purse, so it’s actually a humidor that can be taken with you on the go. It even comes with lids to cover the tins during travel. When you store your products with the Icky humidor, you won’t need to worry about the smell leaking out and you won’t need to worry about your product getting dried out.
With the price that Icky is charging and the lifetime warranty, it’s a no brainer to get this humidor. In fact, I know this is going to save me money over time because I'll stop losing water weight to the atmosphere.
