How to dry, cure, and flavor your marijuana!
Are you ready for the 420 shacks crash course in curing your marijuana? Get ready to take some notes, Today we’re going over drying, air curing and flavor curing. Curing your marijuana buds is done to remove all of the chlorophyll, and left over salts and nutrients the cannabis plant built up over its growing period. After today’s lesson you should be able to dry and cure your marijuana.
Some of the marijuana buds will be smokeable by this point, but we need to cure it! Resist temptation!
This marijuana has been trimmed and is hang drying.
Bag the marijuana up
Storing marijuana in mason jars is great for longevity.
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. place all of your rinds on a cookie sheet, make sure the rinds are inside up on the sheet and bake them for about 6 to 7 minutes. Take them out and let them cool. Carefully cut all of the rinds into tiny strips. Take your cheesecloth and lay it out. Directly in the center, place all of your shredded fruit rinds. Bring the edges up together and tie it up. It should look like a bouquet or a balloon. The key here is to make a TIGHT ball. Take the flavor ball, and place it inside your mason jar full of marijuana. Don’t let it actually touch the marijuana, instead fold a corner of the cheesecloth over the side and screw on the lid over it. This way the flavor ball hangs above the marijuana. Now, remember to check your jars and open them up everyday to refreshen the air. The longer the fruit is in the jar with the marijuana, the better the taste will become. I like to let my marijuana flavor cure for 60 days, replacing the fruit rinds in the flavor ball every 10 days.
That’s my 50c worth….
