Drying plants in dehydrator

From a fellow grower: I just harvested some white widow auto flowers. What do you think about drying them with a dehydrator !

You could, but you’ll risk over drying from the heat. You’ll also lose valuable terpenes through the heat. Some terpenes evaporate just above mid 80s.

Unless you’re using a freeze dryer?
It would remove all moisture and it’ll be as dry as the herbs in your kitchen cabinet. Which in some cannabis processes are used.

Recommend drying is 60F at 60% humidity. With a fan circulation around the room.

I use a modified dehydrator for 3 or 4 days and then transfer buds to glass jars with Bovida bags for the cure. This method works for me.
