yes,yes fellow growers.

so my last crop was an old school tangerine dream. I'm impatient so cured it for a couple weeks and then just started smoking through it. now I'm at the last few buds, its really tasting noice man..

Β 

show long is the perfect cure time or does it just depend on the type of flower you are growing?

@mrfrog Curing can take monts man, but I have heard around 6 months is a good time. This is when most of the terpenes are done with their chemical process and tasting how they should taste.Β

@mrfrog I’ll give my buds a try as soon as there done drying but I do like to jar cure em for a month or two before I hit them hard. If I get enough from my harvest I will try to cure for 6 months + but I smoke/eat a lot so that doesn’t happen much lol πŸ˜†Β

@macky afternoon bro, @backblast nice to meet you.

i guess the buds I'm now smoking are about 2 months old. I hung them to dry and then jar cured them until use, piping the jars a couple times a day. I think I'm going to jar them for a couple months on this crop but I would struggle to keep it for 6 months 🀣  

having said that, it's so much nicer to smoke flower that's cured rather than that harsh blast you get from the first lot lol

stay frosted gents !!!

My favorite is the 4-6 month timeframe but I’m working on some 9 month flower now which is really good too. That being said I love a sample of fresh dried bud every harvest. The terps can change so much during cure I don’t want to miss something πŸ˜‰. It’s a matter of preference like Shonuff said.

I have some from last fall. Longest it's lasted.Β  Definitely different. Richer smell. But I love fresh terps too. Nothing like scissor scrapings.

My oldest weed's been curing since 11th of August, is that about 11 months. Im going to have to get up an hour earlier in the mornings and get an extra hour of vaping in before it goes bad πŸ˜†Β  It's the Ghost Train Power, there's certainly nothing wrong with it yet anyway and no deterioration, pretty much perfect buds I would say. Iv got about two 1litre jars of GTP left so it should last a few months yet if it doesn't go bad first .

I notice a big difference in the taste/effect after 2 months curing but after that between 2-11 months it's all good as far as I can see, im usually too wasted to tell anyway πŸ™‚Β

A year, huh? That's a long time. I have a vacuum sealer. I got a ball jar attachment that sucks the air out of a wide mouth jar. I wonder if that would extend the shelf life?
