You can always bring them back up some. I’ve seen people use fruit peels, a few drops of water, boveda packs. I’m sure there’s more ways but that’s what I’ve read. I doubt you will overdue it to a point they’re ruined without severe neglect. So don’t fret to much over it.
Yes. A very rational fear! Over-dried weed tastes like hay, plus it burns really harsh & fast. It literally cannot be cured.
Maybe worry about it, but don’t lose sleep over it.
Lol terrify him with one post and pat him on the head the next. He’s paying enough attention I think he’ll be ok.
It’s being inside a wheel before someone kicks him downhill… Lol
But seriously how long do fresh cut buds need to dry, in what temp, and in what rh?
My situation is probably 60-65 F, 40-50%rh and mostly dark unless I have on a light
With fans blowing and I have buds laying on their side on pieces of paper and I turn them once or twice a day
I guess I’m worried about drying too fast and also worried about not drying evenly
Lol I’ve read more variations on drying than I can count. And i don’t have the experience to answer except to say everyone does it different it seems. But this is the one I’m going with.
Thank you. You are a gentleman and a scholar
Question about it. Maybe ur understanding includes a little deeper insight into curing. there are other products out there now like 55% and 49% rh maybe one of those is better for long-term curing??
I don’t know. The only two I know of used are the 62 and 58%. I think the 58 was better for rolling and the 62 better for bowls. What do you think or do you use them @blackthumbbetty ?
I don’t use them, myself. Most seem to go with the 62, but some use the 58. It just depends how dry you personally like your buds.
When I harvest, I cut branches off the plant, wet trim those branches, then clip them up to dry in my grow room, which has a steady temp of 70F and an rH averaging between 50%-60%. I put a fan in the room to keep the air moving, but I don’t let it blow on the hanging buds at all.
After about 5 days, the buds are almost ready to cure. First, I snip the buds off the branches & put them in a single layer in a lidded cardboard box. I leave the buds in a box for 3-5 days, turning them once a day.
Once they’re just about stem-snappable, I put them into 1 qt jars. Then, those jars get burped 2x a day for 2 weeks (or until fully dried), 15 minutes in the am & 15 in the pm. Then, they get burped 1x a day for a week. Then, they get burped every other day for a week.
I smoked a half a bowl that was still in my pipe from earlier it was WW and it doesn’t make me sleepy. I guess that means another round is in order lol.
I was just going to take a smoke break, myself.
So far, these strains cause me no drowsiness. Plus, absolutely no munchies!
Good timing lol
Ugh I’d love no munchies. My wife is laughing at me because I usually don’t eat sweets but once in a while. I’ve walked in from smoking and grabbed cookies 3 days in a row now lol
I actually think I’m losing weight b/c of no munchies. Lol! Also learned about THCV, a cannabinoid that is actually an appetite suppressant. I had always wondered if there was weed that didn’t cause munchies, and now I know exactly what to look for.
Usually, if I smoke, I eat…all the time. If I don’t smoke, I can go days w/o remembering to eat. Hopefully, I have found a happy medium.
Yeah a company named GW pharmaceuticals in Europe has supposedly bred a strain that has 80% or something crazy of THCV to use as a weightloss drug.
The only reason I need to lose weight is b/c of 27 years of uncontrolled pot munchies.
Lol damn munchies messing up diets faster than new year’s resolutions lol.
You know Audrey’s dream sequence in European Vacation? That’s what weed does to me. It’s ugly.
Hahah yeah I think that’s what worries me. I usually can only handle sweets that aren’t overly rich sweets. Like fruit pies or cake without frosting. But high I can barely taste the sweetness of the cookies. It just tastes good lol. I turn into a candy and sweets junkie high lol.
