If its safe to dry your stuff in the microwave

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

i was wondering if its safe to dry your stuff in the microwave.
if so for how long.
thanks for all the updates.

You can and I have in a brown paper bag on short 10 or 15 second burst then take it out and gently shake a little, but it really kills the flavors and the good stuff we all do this for. Nothing can touch a proper dry and curing process for retaining the strains original bouquet and buzz, good luck.


A better “in a hurry” option would be a dehydrator, or a hair dryer, or the oven on low (like 180-200f), and break the stuff up so it dries quicker.

But whatever you choose, definitely short ‘bursts’ and check it often.

Do the stove and check often…LOW HEAT

If you are drying some just to sample ,the stove or microwave works fine but if you are doing a bunch of it a proper dry and cure as @Holmes suggested is a must do. Brown paper bags or a cardboard box works well for me .
