FAQs and General Info
The Curidor features a unique cooling design different from that of typical refrigeration systems, providing dynamic cooling power while also maintaining the relative humidity levels proven to prolong shelf life and terpene concentration. Additionally, all Curidor units come standard with our 99.9% UV protected glass, preventing degradation caused from both ambient and direct light. We offer a Black-out Visibility upgrade for those who prefer a more private collection or have young children around. Leading us into our child-safe barrel lock for a safe and secure location to store your collection of flowers and concentrates. Lastly, our newest model, the Curidor™ XL 2.0, features a more powerful compressor based system, allowing for storage of concentrates which can require lower temperature storage. All of these features were incorporated in the Curidor™ XL 2.0 to provide you the best environment to store your flowers and concentrates.
Yes (with caveats). The Curidor is an artisan’s tool to help protect and preserve the terpenes and potency of your flowers and oils. As with any tool, it will take some trial, error and practice to perfect for your style and preferences of your drying and curing process. We most often recommend doing your Primary Dry (traditionally a 7-14 day hang dry) in an environment where the majority of the moisture can be evaporated. Once, ready to enter its Secondary Drying phase, referred to as “Curing”, the material can be placed inside the Curidor to retain the terpenes from evaporating while you complete that Secondary Drying / Curing phase (traditionally 2-4 weeks). Changes in ambient environment as well as differences in density of material can cause these traditional timelines to vary. Remember “Curing” is not just a science, but also an art.
In general, we like our Curidors set around 52F for flowers and closer to 42F for oils. While lower temperatures are needed to slow and prevent terpene volatilization, too low of temperatures cause trichome stalks to become brittle – making the heads more susceptible to mechanical separation, or breaking off, which is why traditional refrigeration units are not recommended for storing cured flower.

As delivered, the middle shelves are about 2.5″ apart with the top shelf coming in closer to 3.5″ and the bottom most compartment (half the depth of the others) is just under 7″ tall. All of the shelves are also removable to accommodate taller containers and reconfiguration.
As with any refrigerant cycle condensation is inevitable. Included with your Curidor is a drip tray which should nearly always accommodate for the condensation created by the unit and allow it to evaporate away without user input. However, in high humidity conditions the rate of condensation can surpass the rate of evaporation. In this case, it may be necessary to empty your drip tray periodically or wipe out some moisture with a clean, dry cloth. As stated in the user manual, it is recommended that you perform regular defrost cycles to extend the life and performance of your Curidor.
Humidity is not directly controllable on the digital interface but is more easily managed manually inside of the climate controlled unit.
We stand by the quality of our products. All Curidor™ systems are warrantied to the original owner within the 48 continental states, for one-year from the date of purchase against defects in material and workmanship under normal service and use.
