How to Cure Marijuana
Now is the time to trim your marijuana before the final cure. To give your buds their final manicure use a clean sharp pair of scissors to gently remove any remaining leaves that are shielding the buds. Part of this process is aesthetic and it is down to the individual to decide how neatly they want their buds trimmed. Wherever you are on the tidy bud spectrum, do not throw away the trimmings, the small trim leaves are often loaded with trichomes and if you don’t want to smoke them they make great edibles.
Separate the individual buds from the stems and store them in clean glass jars. Plastic tubs or bags will do, but we prefer glass.
For the first week or two that the buds are in the jars, open them up twice a day and allow them to ‘breathe’ for 15 minutes. This allows for a complete air exchange and removes any remaining moisture.
Your buds are now ready. Different strains may cure at different rates and you will often find that, if correctly stored, your weed gets better over time.
Good curing can make all the difference to your final smoke and is the finishing touch to all your hard work in the grow room.
