How to dry your weed🌱
Ultimately, the goal of drying cannabis is to reduce the water content of the buds to around 10-15%. Here is how you can achieve the best results:
Trim your cannabis. You can take entire branches of the plant and hang them upside down, or cut the shoots and spread them out on a shelf. You can use ropes and hooks to dry clothes, or even hangers and ropes in a closet. Be creative!
Keep your clipped plant material in a dark room with a temperature around 70 ° F (21 ° C), with 50% humidity. Make sure there is a bit of air circulation, too, to help the drying process.
How to know when marijuana is dry and ready to be cured
There are a couple of ways to determine if your marijuana is dry enough to start curing. The first is to apply gentle pressure to a flower. If it still feels damp or slightly sticky, you should wait a bit longer. Dried marijuana should feel slightly crunchy.
How to cure your cannabis buds
Place the sprouts in containers that have a good seal. It is also advisable to select something with a wide mouth, to facilitate the placement of the shoots inside and remove them once they are cured.
Pack the buds a bit loosely - make sure they're not too tight, as this can inhibit the process. Try to fill the jars only ¾ full, to allow sufficient air flow. This reduces the chance for mold or bacteria to take hold.
Place the jars in a temperature controlled environment. Ideally, aim for humidity levels around 60% and a temperature of 70 ° F (21 ° C). As with drying, keep the sprouts in a dark environment, and make sure they are not exposed to direct sunlight. This could affect the temperature and humidity level, potentially with a disastrous effect.
Especially during the first week of healing, open the jars a few times a day, and leave them open for a few minutes at a time.
