Pressing fresh bud

Does anyone have any experience with pressing freshly harvested bud without drying and curing?

All im really curious is to if actually extracts anything amount worth while?

Im thinking I probably still need to do a quick dry in the oven before I press it.

Don’t do it. Will come out runny and green and not ideal. Dry to 62% RH and then press immediately - don’t cure it. See what you think. I get my most terpy results pressing freshly dried flower.

Im outta weed and desperate

Ladi told me to oven dry then press it cuz pressing it fresh would make it runny like you said but he said the amount of moisture in it would make it spew and pop when dabbed. He said the oven dry would yield less but should still work

Well, if you have the stuff the best solution would be to freeze the shit out of it and do a dry ice or ice water hash run on it (you can do that when it’s fresh), then press the results. You can also do QWET on fresh frozen, so just wash it and use the Source.

No experience, but I would bet that bogleg is right. Seems reasonable.

Like that post harvest wash everyone talks about or are you just talking about the ethanol wash?

That gets me a little closer from having to cheat and cut buds off early.

Now that I’m sitting here stoned thinking about it, I’ve always cheated and hacked some off early just to get high.

I knew what QWET stands for but I had to look this one up

You think it will leak chlorophyll even after being dried?

If I freeze the hell out of it then I shouldn’t have any chlorophyll either, at least in a wash like bogleg said

Once died it will be fine to press. You will be happy you chose to press it. You don’t need to cure your weed before you press it in my opinion. I think you will product your best flavors if you dry it and press it right away.

I always take some and test it. I dry two or three nugs out a time by putting them on the fan on top of my PC case. Takes a couple days.
