Cured weed vs uncured

WB2 buds are light, airy, and also smell great… not as strong though, or maybe it’s the density. But sticky and really kicks me on my ass. I mean, blurred vision when smoking heavy o_0 ! Love it!

Thanks to GWE website & community 🙂
I decided to do an experiment while curing cannabis, and I got some Interesting Results!

You’ll notices the weight and size differences of the nugs. WB1 cured nice and dense and aromatic as hell. Sticky Icky. The WB1 has a very dense smoke when burning, so seems stronger.
Hi Nebula, if you’ll recall, the Whiteberry that I jarred with boveda packs while still too wet… the dense nugs? Well, opened jar for the 1st time after 4 months… Ermahgerd! What a wonderful treat. Very sticky when you break it by hand, gotta tear chunks off to smoke.. and it slow burns forever 😉 the jar smells just like strawberry jam.
I put WB#1 into jars too wet. I put WB#2 into jars way too DRY. Both with boveda packs. Stored them under my bed, now over a month. (rolled them in my hands occasionally to prevent lumping, but No Burping)
Not attempting to start a pro/con of boveda packs… just wanted to show how differently they turned out. Both Awesome as hell, and better than anything I’ve every purchased, bar none.
Update: 4 months later…

Just thought I’d share, as you mentioned you may try it sometime. I’ll certainly do another jar or two next harvest… just to try to repeat the process… 1st time was kinda an accident/laziness really 😉

“Wet” vs. “Dry” Cured Cannabis I decided to do an experiment while curing cannabis, and I got some Interesting Results! I put WB#1 into jars too wet. I put WB#2 into jars way too DRY. Both

Since the concentration of these components is higher inside the plant than in the surrounding water, they will move from inside the plant material to try to equalize with the concentration in the water.

There are different methods of curing cannabis after it has been harvested, and which is best depends on a combination of how it is intended to be consumed and personal preference.
Drying is best done under mild conditions, as an environment too wet and cold can delay drying long enough to be a mold risk, and conditions too hot and dry can cause the outermost portions to over-dry while the interior flowers and stems are still too wet to be safely stored.

When made into cannabutter or infused oils, the end product lacks the distinctive cannabis flavor that many find somewhat repellent in edibles.
To this end, immediately after harvest, the cannabis should be allowed to dry in the open air until enough moisture has evaporated to prevent fungal growth, but not so much that it loses structural integrity.
After decarboxylation (exposing to low heat to drive off carbon dioxide from THC-A to convert it to the active form THC), water cured cannabis is so mild tasting it can be simply ground and used directly in cooking.
Below are some popular methods of storing and preserving cannabis post-harvest.
Speaking of mold, water cured cannabis should only be obtained from reliable sources, as it is sometimes used by unscrupulous folk to pass molded, insecticide-contaminated, or otherwise ruined cannabis onto the unsuspecting.

For smaller adjustments, the lid can be removed until a more acceptable moisture level is reached (a process known as burping).
