Harvested my Mary because of an influx of amber trichomes and i wanted more of a heady euphoria than a couch potato result. I dried them hanging in my basement for a week until the smaller stems snapped instead folding. During the drying week the pungent aroma of good weed dissipated to none at all in the basement. I put them in mason jars planning to include a mini hygrometer and a 62% humidity package. The initial readings before I included the Boveda was 62 and 63%. Perfect I thought. So now, I just checked, two days later, the readings are both 64% without the Boveda. Not bad. My biggest concern is that the wonderful fragrance of good weed has been replaced by the smell of chlorophyll. I don’t think it’s the odor of hay that people have mentioned in numerous threads but more the smell of a recently mowed lawn. I’m hoping the original magnetic fragrance returns during the cure as it was earlier when harvesting and during the early drying phase?
Bye-the-way, I couldn’t resist sampling and I have to say it is what I hoped for even at this early stage. One can still function during the euphoric experience.
Thanks for any incite.
Oh, should I add the Boveda packs when 62% is reached, do it now, or not at all.
