Hey guys...my first large harvest is approaching and I'm not entirely sure what the protocol for curing large amounts of cannabis is. I've been told rubbermaid tote bins but what about the affect of the plastic to the buds....is this an issue? Will the buds taste like plastic? How do I go about curing and storing large amounts of cannabis.....I think potentially I COULD have 2lbs ish....not sure....could be none if something goes terribly fucking wrong lol. Please help.

the best results i have ever had are in a plastic tub mate. I swear by it. You have to make sure what ever containers you use, are air tight. like very air tight. I find kilner jars do a good job, but plastic tubs just seem to do the job better for some reason. Thats just my opinion of course. But over the years, I have found that a good air tight plastic containers always works best.

Nice man. I have no experience curing that much at once, unfortunately. But I have seen pics of guys using large totes like you mentioned, or plastic barrels. Seems to be just fine.. as long as you start with clean barrels lol, obviously.

A 50 gallon mason jar (barrel?) would be something to see though..haha.

i use my tent turn the lights off as it’s dark and no light gets , turn in / out fans off and have just one fan blowing round the room , add a  oil heater on a low heat on a timer , I hang my buds in nets n leave for a week or till it’s dry , hope that helps you mate

lmao, I think your estimate is going to be very low unless you end up loosing some to rot. I’ve not ever had to deal with more than a pound at a time and I just use quart mason jars for that. Never tried using plastic but if it’s the right kind and airtight it should work

@colacody that’s definitely going to depend on the bud structure. Really nice tight nugs can get a couple ounces per jar (approx). Looser bud can take twice that space so the actual mostly useless answer is 8-16 per pound depending on the buds.

@monkeydo ok so I bought this bin....hopefully does the trick.....at 50ish litres....that would be 50 oz give or take so 2 to 3lbs should be handled with the help of my existing mason jars lol.

@colacody I also had this problem man. Manicuring was tiering with also working full-time. I left about a pound of unmanicured in a plastic tub still on branches.  I forgot about it and it went that crispy it would crumble on touching it. Told a good mate about my problems and he put me.onto potato peels with the buds in a plastic bag. What a surprise I got when I finished work that day. Got home and all.my bids were full.of moisture again. 

I just thought I might share that little.trick with ya.

I cure in 5 gallon buckets with tight lids. I put Boveda 62% moisture packets in with the buds and it cures out nicely.  

I used to use jars but I kind of outgrew that because too many jars becomes a pain.

Once the buds are dry enough to snap the stems, I put it in the buckets and forget about it for 4-5 weeks. (I might sneak a sniff here and there)
