Some say that a little bending, rather than snapping, is a good thing. I usually dry mine to near snapping and then cure them. Humidity control hasn’t been a problem when doing that.
Thanks! How many days does drying normally take you? And what temp and humidity is your drying room?
I dry at ~60% RH and as close to 68 degrees F as I can get. It usually takes a week or a little more.
I cure at nearly the same conditions, but in a Ball jar.
I’ve got 55%RH and 70F degees for temp. Is that high enough temp to destroy terps?? I can’t get it to 65
70F is fine. 55 RH will get you dried slightly faster.
Do u have any info on “sweating” the buds after drying but before jarring??
I don’t. Never heard of it.
Does the smell of your buds decrease at all during your drying stage? Does it return during the cure??
You lose a lot of smell with the surface moisture the cure evens it all out and develops the terpenes
They will smell like hay for most of the dry and the hay smell will eventually turn to a nice cannabis smell the last couple of days of the dry. Smell will continue to improve during the cure.
Thanks a ton guys very helpful
