You mean the stuff that they put in shoe boxes? A friend swears by it but I haven't tried it myself.Anyone tried using dessicants to speed up the process?
I just posted a thread about this in Growers Forums' Curing section
Here is the link
you're right man! using an oven or microwave to dry the buds is a no no to me! it can lose some THC and potency of the buds when it gets too hot. i just can't trust the microwaveMy thoughts exactly. Why in hell would you spend all that time caring for and nurturing your buds if you're just going to ruin them in the oven or microwave?
Lol cold in LA thats funny. the day before the bud is ready it will smell bad/ the next day the bud should smell like good bud and the stems should snap you should notice as the days go by the bud will taste and smoke better and the potency will increase as the Tricombs become crystallized.i dont grow yet. but i dumpster dive alot. i live in la so when people get done harvesting out here. they just throw plant away. i take it home and sort thru it. some times just get decent leaves to cook edibles with. but this time i got a bunch of bud wadded up too. took for ever to separate cut up main stems out of it. looked like a commercial type harvest. very sticky. any ways i had them in paper bags for a couple days. but weather started getting cold.
i moved it into a big box one layer thick of bud. and just have it in my house with fan over it. one bud looks ready i think. but the rest looks really dark but pretty dry. does the color need to turn lighter befor you know it is ready to toke on?
still looks sugary too
Freeze dry. place buds in between wax paper layers in a freezer or cooler place a piece of dry Ice on top. the buds are dry when the stems snap.Hey I really want to know how I can dry my buds discretely. Is there some way to dry my buds by (Just my first idea) putting the bud into a rubbish bag, putting that rubbish bag into a sealed bucket which will be placed into the ground and buried? This would be ideal but any ideas or feedback would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply This isn't what I was hoping for but good advice non the less. I was hoping for some way to dry it outside and underground but thanks for the reply anyway. Links or any advice on how I could achieve this would be appreciated, thanksFreeze dry. place buds in between wax paper layers in a freezer or cooler place a piece of dry Ice on top. the buds are dry when the stems snap.
