    Best curing techniques

    Going through my first cure with good results so far, have buds jarred up in amber mason jars with 62% RH packs. I open the jars twice a day in a humidity controlled room also set to 62% RH for 30 min (total 1 hour a day). Would anyone suggest lowering the time or frequency as the weeks progress?

    Rice Balls to lower RH in jars

    Hi all. I've just read about 'drying' your harvest underwaterfor 7 days minimum to flush out the crap and then quick dry after the 7 days. Has anyone tried this and does it work? It would suit me down to the ground because I don't really have anywhere to hang my plants but I do have a...

    Mold during curing - Trash or hash?

    So I had to cut drying short (3 days) due to a family visit. I knew the bud was a bit wet, figured I'd be looking at a slower cure 30-60 days (versus my usual 7-14) so I went ahead and threw them into mason jars. After about 10 days of burping the jars twice a day for about 15-30 minutes I had...

    Low smell drying/curing techniques

    After my first harvest, my wife nearly lost it when she came home and the house wreaked of freshly harvested bud. I moved it to dry in a dehumidified crawl space, which helped minimize the smell (originally drying in our laundry room), but it was still pretty stinky. Before I start my next...

    Question regarding curing

    Hey guys, I have a question about curing. I grew two plants and staggered the harvest by only cutting off a bit at a time and allowing the rest to mature a bit more. Having done that, I became confused as to how long each batch dried. I'm positive that each batch had roughly 5-6 days to dry. Now...

    Curing before oil extraction

    I am growing for the purpose of making CCO to treat my husband's cancer and am wondering about curing the product. I understand the need for a slow, controlled cure to enhance flavor and smoothness, but what if you plan on using it for oil? Could I just let it dry out? I am thinking 85 F...
