We really love and appreciate our customers. We have been in business since 2009 and our overarching goal is to preserve your herb/tobacco while maintaining absolute discretion. Our BudVac jars stand apart from other stash containers by utilizing dual factors - a vacuum sealing lid and all glass container with no BPA leach from crappy plastic containers.
Our vacuum seal is created by using our proprietary lid that’s equipped with an air vacuum valve. Paired with our vacuum pump, you can remove every last bit of air within the jar thus preventing oxidation of your valuable contents.
BudVac’s glass jars are entirely impermeable. This means that nothing can escape from its walls - especially the dank aroma that exudes from prized herbs and high-end tobaccos.. Additionally, our glass is never treated, which ensures that nothing will ever leech onto your valuable flowers, unlike plastic containers that are made of petroleum biproducts containing Bisphenol A (BPA). (study link)
The process of creating the vacuum is accomplished with a few rapid pumps. You’ll quickly hear a clicking sound - which is the indicator letting you know the vacuum process is complete. You can expect to reach a vacuum level between -25 and -29 in.Hg. (outer space is -30 in.Hg).
Q: Do I need to purchase a pump with the jar?
A: No, every jar comes with a manual hand vacuum pump. Only the automatic pumps are purchased seperately.
Q: How long does the jar hold a vacuum for?
A: We have tested our product to hold a vacuum for a full year. All shipped products are tested to hold a vacuum for at mininmum one week. As soon as a unit is made it is put under vacuum and the vacuum is released before packaging and shipping.
Q: How many pumps does it take to create the vacuum?
A: This depends on the amount of contents (volume) in the jar. The more contents, the less pumping. We do recommend our automatic pumps for the larger units.
Q: How strong are the automatic pumps?
A: The rechargeable is not as strong as the Pro-Vac but it does pull a -20hg vacuum in approximately 15 seconds on a 1oz jar (500ml). For comparison, the Pro-Vac will pull -25 to -28hg in 3 seconds. Both examples are with empty jars. Obviously, the more volume of contents inside the jar will decrease the time to pull a vacuum.
Q: Shipping seems a bit high???
A: Due to the fact we are shipping glass, the products are packaged in boxes that are large enough to allow sufficient packaging material to protect the items. We make no profit from shipping. All charges directly from the USPS and are calculated by size, weight and your zip code. We ship from Orange County, California.
Q: How long does shipping take?
A: We ship via USPS Priority mail from Southern California. The average time to Western states is next day, Midwest is 2 days and East coast is typically 2-3 days.
Q: My jar worked great for a long time but now it's not holding a vacuum for very long. What should I do?
A: Simply remove the rubber O-ring (gasket) and rinse with warm water. Wipe down the glass areas where the O-ring comes in contact before replacing the O-ring. Small debris can cause a slow air leak over time.
