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.

Air Curing
Air curing is the process of utilizing the oxygen in the air to oxidize the chlorophyll and break it down on a chemical level. The process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks. Air curing marijuana allows for a stronger aroma, which is very important for taste and flavor. 

Drying the marijuana out
The first step involved after harvesting is the drying process. Take your marijuana branches, and hang them upside down so the fan leaves can droop over the buds. The drying process can take 2 weeks to 2 months depending on where you live and the place you choose to dry at. Desert climates dry faster than tropical or mountainous areas. The location of where you hang the newly trimmed marijuana branches, should be a cool dark place free from moisture and humidity, with a good ventilation system. Check the marijuana everyday to prevent the accumulation of mold and mildew. Once the fan leaves turn crisp and can break off easily, then start trimming off ONLY the fan leaves. Now you can hang your marijuana buds up to dry again, as they will still be moist. Allow the little marijuana leaves to droop and cover the buds. Repeat the checking process everyday, until the little leaves turn crisp and can break off easily. Time to manicure! now all you have to do is trim off all the extra plant stuff. The buds should still be a little moist at this stage of the drying process.
Some of the marijuana buds will be smokeable by this point, but we need to cure it! Resist temptation!
