Is Curing with co2 a thing?

Has anyone ever experimented with injecting co2 into curing jars through out the curing phase?

As the buds cure, the remaining moisture content equalizes throughout the nugs.

I’m wondering… Could adding co2 to your jars each time you burp during curing slow oxidation? Would it allow drying buds more time to convert chlorophyll to starches and sugars as the plant material continues to dry. Would it help prevent hay odors and prevent mold? Or, do the enzymes that break down the chlorophyll need oxygen to survive?

Why would you want to slow curing down?

Aside from removing oxygen needed for the process to occur, you'd also be drying it out. Not that I've ever tried this, but it doesn't sound like a good idea.

Even after drying your flowers, they will continue to lose moisture and become saturated with carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a heavier gas than oxygen which means it will sink to the bottom of the jar. This changes the ratio of carbon dioxide to oxygen which causes nuggets to heat up differently than just desiccation. Burping weed allows moisture and carbon dioxide to exit from the jar, leaving your buds dryer and tastier!

Curing cannabis improperly will be mild and taste awful. It might get you high, but it won’t be pleasurable.
