Vacuum Sealed Jars

I heard that vacuum sealing cures in 1/2 the time as conventional jar curing. Has anyone got experience with that?
I saw this on amazon: FoodSaver Wide-Mouth Jar Sealer

What are your thoughts?

I have done it and yes it works. I do not like the bags at all. They tend to press on buds to much and break trichomes to much. Vacuum jars are the way to go. Just remember to poor them out of jar once a day to breath

That's useful info. Thanks CO!
Did you find the curing to be faster? any issues with doing it this way?

not much faster for curing needs oxygen so you have to open to let it in. It is the best hands down to keep it fresh. Now you do not need to buy a freaking vacuum sealer to do this. You can do it this way as well for way cheaper. vaccuum seal a mason jar with a shop vac and a turkey bag.Put the jar in the bag with the lid on it....but with the smallest gap on one edge to allow air to escape. Gather the opening on the turkey bag around the tip of the shop vac and squeeze down to form a seal. When you turn the vac on it will suck the lid down. It makes the button pop when you unseal it
