Curing is important for a good taste and a high THC level. Curing means storing the dried flowers airtight and ventilating every day for up to 2 months to bring them to the perfect moisture. The moisture of the flowers can easily be determined by the humidity in the container of the flowers, so you should place a hygrometer there. The flowers are perfectly cured when the humidity in the container is between 60% and 65%.
How do I cure?
- For curing you need an ambient humidity of approx. 50%.
- If the humidity in the container is above 70%, you have to put the flowers out of the container for 1-2 hours every day. Then put them back in and close the container airtight.
- If the humidity in the container is 70% or lower, you only have to open the lid of the container for 15-30 minutes every day.
- At a humidity of 65% or less, the curing is finished and you can store the flowers in the airtight container for a long time.
- The humidity in the container should not drop below 60%!
- If the humidity in the container is below 60%, you should put the flowers in a place with a humidity of 65% or more and allow them to absorb some moisture again.
