My main concern is you got sick, so we have to figure out if its something in the weed thats making you sick.
Did anyone else smoke the weed and did they get sick.
Do you have allergies or are you allergic to anything you know of.
If you did a proper flush, then what is making you sick was on the outside of the plant.
Did you rinse your buds after harvest.
Did you use a foiiar spray during flower.
Did you spray pesticides on your buds during flower.
To properly dryy our weed, hang in a dark area with the humidity around 50% to 60%. You want the buds to dry as slow as possible, 5 to 10 days. When they are dry the outside of the bud will be crunchy. At this point the outside of your bud is dry but the inside is still moist. So you need to draw the moisture out by sweating them. You do this by trimming your buds and putting them into mason jars. This draws the moisture from the middle to the outside. Then for the first week you need to burp your jars 2 to 3 times a day to release the moisture. Leave jars open for 10 to 15 mins. then reseal the jars. This is the start of the curing process. After 2 to 3 weeks of doing this then you can place a Boteva pack in your jar for long term storage. The longer you cure the buds the better they will become. Better taste and aroma.
I hope this helps you out/
