Drying cannabis is an essential part of the curing process and a critical step in developing a high-quality product. Quickly drying buds can compromise the terpene profile and cannabinoid potency, so it’s important to know how to do it correctly for optimal results.
Properly Curing Cannabis
BudWinners The first step is to create a perfect drying environment. This is important for preserving the plant’s terpene profile, cannabinoid potency, and preventing mold growth. The best environment is a temperature of 70-75degF (21-24degC) and a humidity level of 60 to 65 percent.
Quick Drying Cannabis: The Dos and Don’ts of Speeding Up the Process
One of our favourite ways to quickly dry weed is to use brown paper bags. The bags are inexpensive, can be found anywhere, and they easily dries weed without damaging the buds.
Make sure to stuff the bags only halfway to two-thirds full, leaving room for air circulation. Leave the bags in a dark, dry place and you should see your buds dry in about 7 days.
Another way to speed up the curing process is to use a fan. Most USB PC fans can be purchased online and they blow air over the buds to speed up the drying process.
Some people find that the heat generated by microwaves can help to speed up the drying process. The problem with this method is that microwave ovens have a wide range of power levels and efficiencies which can result in inconsistent and unpredictable results.
