Thread: Quick drying sample buds using the sun.

    Default Quick drying sample buds using the sun.

    I read about this method a while ago, I think it works pretty well, so thought I would post it up.

    You need a prop and a kitchen sieve or similar. (something to put the bud on inside the prop that won't let moisture collect on it)

    Put the sieve in the prop and put the bud on the sieve. then leave it sitting in direct sunlight for about 4 hrs. (I know light is supposed to deteriorate THC, but this is just for sample buds or emergencies )

    It needs to be quite a hot day for this to work. After a while moisture will collect on the lid of the prop while the bud dries under the sun, I think this helps give the bud a slight cure because there is no harshness when smoked, I find the bud has a slight peppery taste which isn't unpleasent at all.

    The bud was put outdoors at about 11am today....





    Moisture collecting on the lid after about half an hour....



    This is after about 2 hours....



    4 hours...



    It's quite a dense little bud and it's bone dry throughout, grinds up well, tastes better than any other quick dry method I have tried.



    Well worth a try imo

    I only quick dry the lower buds so the fact this method is a bit crude matters not.

    Simple place bud in brown paper bag, leave on top of a warm radiator for a few hours.

    Perfect, like you say for emergency testing, i'll have a lil go at that, its the same principal as a desert condensation water still, likewise for emergencies
