I have once. Read that a lot of the unpleasant taste is actually chlorophyll and being water soluble can be washed out leaving the good stuff intact. So rinsed a batch out in tepid water, then gently dried in a dehydrator with no heat.

Didn't end up making edibles, but drinkables. Plonked a bottle of vodka over it and left it in the freezer for 3 months. I would like to say it was great, but Ì didn't get to try it. My youngest son knicked it and he and his mates polished it off.

He reckons it went down well though 😁

Yer man I have washed my buds before and there is a good guide in it here. If you have a dusty grow room, or had bugs, then i would wash the buds after trimming them and hang. Can really take a lot of shit from the buds. But THC isnt water soluble, so that shit stay on there Smile

Colacody did a big outdoor grow harvest/wash this fall. He used Jorge Cervantes method with very good results. Hydrogen peroxide wash and dry with a gently blowing fan while they hang on a rack. Getting them dry after the wash is key if I remember correctly.

Well I've only done it with water and dried weed. Seemed sacrilege at the time. Soaked in tepid water for 24hrs gently agitating from time to time. Changed water once. Then gently drained on clean towel. Then placed in dehydrator with no heat, but I'm sure any airy, dry location would do.

So....this a MUST for outdoor weed and harvested weed in a dusty location indoors mentioned by Macky. I have done it both times Ive harvested and it makes your buds SO FRESH! There are a few ways to go about this.....outdoor I used a hydrogen peroxide and water bath followed with a rinse because I fought powdery mildew.....the hydrogen peroxide causes the mildew to be washed off your buds and then a rinse and dry in front of a fan until the buds are no longer wet....they MUST be dry to the touch (like fresh weed) before they go to dry or you can risk mould. There is also a method which involves 3 buckets. 

https://percysgrowroom.com/washing-buds-after-harvest/

That is a better method for dusty weed but the peroxide bath is beautiful if you have any powdery mildew. Saved my crop completely because I ALWAYS fight powdery mildew in my area. Savage asshole cunt fungus....passionately hate the shit lol. 

Never have washed dried weed....unsure of what's happening in that department but I have used both of the harvest methods with success. When washing buds....it is KEY to dry them after with a fan until not dripping with water or wet and als9 be careful to NOT TOUCH the buds on the sides of the buckets. This will ensure maximum trichrome protection....and if your like me....picky with a touch of OCD....you'll be sad if you damage any lol.

Good luck and hope this helps!

Let it groooowwww...let it GROOOOWWW!!!

I think if my buds where covered in bugs dirt etc I would water cure the buds

You get a smaller crop and the buds don't look great but you can get some strong knock out buds, some sites even say you can smoke bud root if you water cure it but I don't know because I have not tried it, but it's a popular way if you need to chop in a hurry, you can cure the buds in sealed jars of water, change the water daily ( look it up on Google)

I've not washed to remove mildew and debris thus far mercifully. The reason I washed was to remove the 'weedy flavour for edibles and 'drinkables'.

I read a number of 'cannabis chefs' do this and thought it worth a go. According to my son the vodka tasted a lot better than the Everclear tincture I made, which I must admit was pretty foul 🤑

If you are trying to eliminate the weed chlorophyll taste you might want to look at Jacks water curing. It will remove lots of the chlorophyll but won’t damage the THC. While I’ve not tried it yet it is something I’m going to eventually give a try just to see because my Mrs also has a severe dislike for the flavor of weed

I’m debating on either popping a G13 Haze or Chem OG next. I got a few weeks so I’m watching yours to help me decide which way to go.

Would it be advantageous to put an air stone in with the initial soak?
