For several thousand years, ganja farmers have dried weed by placing them on rocks under direct sunlight.
Since this is one of the most basic methods of drying weed, don’t expect a tip-top flavour – you may still experience some of that harsh smoke we talked about earlier.
There you have it – all the weed drying and curing advice you need. Now remember, patience is a virtue. Don’t try anything we wouldn’t – attempting to dry and cure your weed any faster will most definitely not provide the best results.
Place your buds on a baking tray and put them on top of the toaster. Make sure your buds are neatly cut up into small pieces before placing them on the tray. The heat from your toaster oven is enough to get the job done, so don’t place those buds inside the toaster by mistake!
You can dry a fairly large stash using either a gas or electric power heater. Make sure the room where you’re going to dry it is well ventilated. Be careful though – if you dry the buds too close together, this could lead to mould growth. So you’d want to do the opposite because mould cannot only spread but can prove fatal if that weed is consumed.
If you need to quick-dry your buds for immediate consumption, this method works great.
You may need to keep the weed in the heated room overnight or for a few hours at least.
It’s important to remember that if your buds get burnt, then they are pretty much useless. Additionally, never set your oven higher than 65°C.
These are designed to get rid of moisture and keep it away from all places where it can thrive. Place your bud right alongside a desiccant pack and it will help suck up all that moisture.
Harvest time is here! Your marijuana buds are all set and ready to be harvested – however, you can’t take off your grower hat, not just yet. Newly harvested buds need to go through a process known as cannabis curing. Why is this necessary? Well, even though weed can be harvested, dried and smoke …
Take your buds and flatly wrap them in paper or use a paper envelope and place them over your water heater, radiator, or the back of your TV. Pot should be dry in a few hours or overnight.
You do retain THC levels, they may get crispy (the buds silly), but these function just fine. These processes will help you dry your pot quickly and be able to enjoy it in minutes or a few hours. And then you should be ‘crispy’ too.
Rig a flat piece of 10″ foil to be held under a 100 watt light bulb (no hotter) within 2-4 inches. Turn your buds every 1-2 minutes. Should be smoke-able within about 10-15 minutes time.
Place your trimmed buds on a cookie sheet spread out evenly. Set your oven to 125-140 degrees Fahrenheit (no hotter!). Leave for 10 minutes, remove for 5 minutes and turn buds. Repeat once more.
I’ve heard you can use a food dehydrator, it takes a little longer (hours) but should work as well if you have one one of these.
NEVER have your heat source be more than 150 degrees Fahrenheit! Any hotter will actually burn or vaporize the THC or resin glands. this IS what gets you high, so be careful of this.
Place buds flat on a plate. Use your microwave on 50% power or less (important not to burn). Set for only 10-12 seconds at a time, remove and turn, repeat as necessary. Done quickly, be careful.
Also, if your buds get too dry (crispy), you can put them in a ziploc bag or glass sealable jar with a piece of orange peel. yep, it will smoke much nicer by morning.
