    Default How to get the best taste and smell from your weed??

    I wanted to know what tricks and tips you have for getting the best smell and taste from your weed.. So far ive grown a few plants all of them have been autos and a couple have not tasted and smelt as good as i hoped. A few have been really nice though and i just want to know what went wrong with the others.

    The one that smelt and tasted the best was the one i dried from hanging in my tent all the rest have been done in a box with small holes in..

    Is it the way that you dry and cure that does it or are some strains especially autos just not as good? The best strains that ive had taste and smell from was my blackberry kush and girl scout cookies which was both made by fast buds.. Thats what makes me think it could just be the certain strains.

    Every time i have dried its taken about 3 days and then i cure for the rest of the time and leave them jarred and burp when needed. I dont wait till they snap to jar tho because that makes them too dry. I usually time it just before it gets to that point.

    You need to slow down the dry time should take at least 7 days

    If you dry in 3 days you will likely get hay smell everytime

    Try cutting it all down to golf ball sized nugs and dry in paper bags from wet....no hanging.....just line the bottom of the bags and fold her closed...check em daily and try to get a longer dry time

    But if i wait 7 days then surely it will be too dry, i got told 3 - 7 days is usually enough but its different for everyone depending on the enviroment. Before i was drying in the summer though thats why it was most likely 3 days.

    I just dont want to over dry it and get to the point where the stalks are snapping. I just had a look and humidity is at 65 and the temp is 19 degrees.

    Temperature plays a big part in getting it right..

    From what you say then i should be toking on some fresh cheesey shit right now then but..

    My shit has been hanging for 7 days and still wet because temps..
    I even stopped feeding them water a few days before the chop..
    Somethings are worth waiting for.. like a fine wine, weed needs to mature sometimes..
    So i am smoking some 20 day flushed 5 week cured cheesy shit right now and would smoke that every time over a fresh bit..

    Just don't rush it. you waited this long to grow it, why not wait an extra week..
    The above is just opinion..My opinion is law in my world..

    Hahah nice, Yeah man i still got weed from my last grow im in no rush i just want to do it all right. Im going to try and make it dry for as long as i can. I just read some other posts and i think 3 days wasn't enough i just think my conditions the times before made me jar it quicker because it was just too hot. Whats your temps at the moment? I think now that i got it at 19c it should be much better conditions for me to get the best out of it. Im still pretty new to it all and one of my grows just tasted horrible really. the others have been decent taste not so good smell and 2 have been really nice taste and smell. I just gotta learn from my mistakes and hold out for longer this time.

    What do i do if the stems are snapping on day 4? do i still jar or do i wait? because everyone ive seen says once they all snap they're over dry. I also dont have any paper bags like he suggested earlier so have to make do with my groom

    I have super low humidity so thats why i use the bags....then i put the bags in a cardboard box and just watch the humidity when she gets high you open the box....paper grogery bags pretty easy to get ahold of

    my temps outside are 0 ..zero..

    Inside where i dry are not much higher i would say.. not used a temp gauge in a while as have grow room and everything else pretty much dialed in..
    i am in no rush to dry my shit but that is too cold for my like'in really..
    It's all a learning thing...you will pick up little things and notice they make a difference.
    Also a clean flush makes a difference in taste..

    Not a stem snapper haha.. but i give the buds a squeeze and when i feel it is right i jar them up and burp them for a week or 2..then every week..then never..
    Used to paper bag them and all that but find my style works for me...each too their own and all that..

    Thanks for both your opinions, So far it seems to dry a lot better in my tent than in the cardboard box so im definitely gonna keep drying it in there. I just need to figure out how to get the same temps and stuff in there in the summer as well but it should be fine.

    Temps 19-20 an humidity at 50
    Then when you think they are dry,no one can tell
    You how long that will be.jar it up an buy some
    Boveda 62 packs from eBay one for each jar.
    Once you get it a bit sorted in the jars chuck
    Them packs in.job done.
    When you getting a diary up???

    Real organic not bottle nutes always taste amazing,not drying and curing properly can also have negitive effect on the end product.
