Drying and curing your marijuana plants

Drying and curing your cannabis plants is part of the cultivation process that every grower has to handle, if they want a good harvest and it doesn’t matter if you grow weed on your own in small quantities or you are a large cannabis grower. If you buy weed from a marijuana dispensary, then the drying and curing procedure will still be important to you. It will keep your cannabis stash in a fresher state and allow you to keep it on the shelf in an enclosed container for much longer. For the grower that pays close attention to the methods used for drying and curing their cannabis plants, it is important to note what this accomplishes namely:

  • Breaking down the chlorophyll
  • Improving the cannabinoid provile
  • Reducing possibilities for rough and harsh inhaling
  • Preventing mold

The Chlorophyll

Your weed should not contain too much chlorophyll or it will mess with the flavor and taste when you build a joint to smoke. And yet there are some recreational users that like it this way. But for the professional grower, it is best to make sure that there is a drying and curing process. If too much chlorophyll is found in your cannabis plants, it makes the harvest grassy or woody. 

The Cannabinoid Profile

There are several cannabinoids within the bud; namely THC, CBD, THCA, CBG, and CBN. All of these combined work to provide medicinal benefits and get you high. If your cannabis plants done’ through drying and curing, then it will be less effective and you won’t be able to enjoy it while smoking. If your cannabis plants go through the correct drying and curing process, then when you smoke and inhale your weed, it flows more smoothly. In addition, you won’t have to deal with mold because through the drying and curing process, the grower will be able to remove specific chemical compounds found in the plant matter.

The smell should also be a determining factor. Your weed should have a pleasant smell and an aroma that tells you that it is alive and fresh. The feel of it is also vital. If it is falling apart at the slightest of touch, then it is bad and hasn’t been dried or cured properly. In addition, if your weed is good, it will snap as you try to break it off. If it is bad, then it will crack when you snap it off. Good tasting weed means that your cannabis plants have been appropriately cured. 

The Recommendations

If you find yourself with bad weed because the cannabis plants have not been property dried or cured, you should throw it away and not consume it. If you are a cannabis grower, you can use it as compost for your soil in the next round of planting. If you don’t want to throw it away, you could mix it with fresher buds while you are rolling your blunt or joint. You can use it as a source of making edibles and cannabis butter. You can extract it and use it in concentrates, shatter and wax.
