Cannabis Crunchy After Dry But Super Moist After Cure

Discussion in 'Cannabis Harvesting & Curing' started by Shawnery, Jul 13, 2018 at 1:48 PM.

  1. I dried my cannabis in my garage by hanging individual branches and stems. Outside temps around 80 and dehumidifier set to 60. Dried for about 5 days at which point I removed the buds and jared in both a tote and a very large CV vault. When I removed them from the hangers the buds were crunchy but only the tiny stems snapped.

    It's been a little over two week now and I've been burping every day. My concern is that my bud has gone from crunchy to moist, but I admit that's how I like it. The stems no longer snap and bend most of the time. The inner humidity of both containers is at 65 percent.

    I was under the impression that this is a little high. Am I wrong and this is the right humidity or right and I screwed up somewhere?

    Thanks!

    It wasnt very evenly dry b4 u jarred it. The middle was still a lil moist. At 66deg and 62% rh which is what i like to dry at i like to think of it more as equalizing the humidity or moisture content more than drying.
    At those numbers u can hang it indefinitely in theory.

    Ya. You dried too fast. So the outside got really dry but the inside was still moist. You want a nice even dry period at least 7-10 days. More is probably better.

    Curing by definition is going I pull moisture from the inside out. That’s what’s happening. But it’s not near dry enough on the inside yet. When burping leave the jars open longer and just do an extended cure. If you burp long enough it will be fine but once it’s too dry there is no getting it back

    It’s basically curing as it’s hanging

  5. So what should I get the humidity to in the containers? I'll just let them breath a little longer each day I assume?

  7. Unfortunately we had a heat spell right as I started to dry. I would have liked to be around 65 degrees I think.

    62-65%. Once it gets to 70% open it and let it burp. Leave it open a while. Then close it up and once it gets up toward 70% again open. You’ll find the open time gets shorter and shorter

  10. No hay smell, just super dank cheesy goodness but super sweet because its gelato.

    I've been doing extended burps for the last couple days and it's been helping.

    Ya you can only work with what you got.

    It’s always better to jar too early than too late. So if they got moist you are good. Now just do a modified extended cure.

    Don’t allow them to get too dry

    Don’t allow the moisture in the jar to get too high.
    Those are the rules. Any way you do that should get the job done.

    I sure hope its not sweet. Ill b pissed
     
  13. So right now at 65 I'm right at the top level of where it should be? I was at 67 and got it to 65 in the last few days. I didn't want to over do it or screw it up.

    So far everyone has loved it but commented on it being slightly to moist.

    Thanks guys! I didn't want all that cost and effort to go down the shitter!

    Are you using a Boveda pack?
     
  18. I'm trying without this time to see if I notice a difference between the power of the scent compared to with.

    Dont use them unless it is longer term storage after they have been properly dried.
