The 10lb Grove Bags are $90 for 100lbs and you don’t need to burp (or check out the 55g liners). Grovebags.com
I've seen this mentioned before that they dont need to be burped. From what I can tell, while they might be the ultimate in long term storage, they dont magically cure the buds. It seems like a perfect option post cure though.

Hello guys. We have whole greenhouse of cannabis. And we grow for a first time...

I've seen this amazing method.


Really inspired to implement it. Already added the parts to shopping cart, but...
I experience financial troubles right now, so maybe this would not be optimal to invest another 300$ into this...
I wonder if I could just put all my buds into few of those barrels

One guy told me it wouldn't be a problem to do so. I, however, worry that they would simply mold, or would acquire ugly shape
What can you say on this, guys? Thanks for your expertisee
I would love to know what kind or type of air pump that is. Even the larger pumps we use for air stones dont have the balls to push that many buckets.

According to them you only need to dry (10-14 days) and “All unwanted gases and water vapor are diffused through the film…” and that “After closure, our film will bring the internal environment to 58-62% RH…” That said, I’ve personally only used the bags after curing, so can’t attest to their claims.

Hard to wrap my mind around how that would work, it sounds risky. Maybe somebody will chime in with their experiences, I sure wouldn't miss never having to burp again.

I have built and used a similar system using pet food storage with gamma lids. One way valves, airlines and grommets attached to one manifold per 2 buckets, and one air pump per manifold on a timer. Used it to cure post dry for 3 weeks. Excellent results. I moved the premium stuff out of there into some CVaults and its been the best long term storage I have ever used. But I left the average stuff in the curing buckets for the other long term storage and the flavor really fell off. So for me, I will continue to use this method for curing only. You still have to monitor the buckets, move the product around inside the buckets etc.

I don't get it.

Sounds like you can fill a few of those barrels, maybe $20000.00 to $30000.00 worth of flower and

But spending another $300.00 to insure success on the most important part of everything you've done so far, shouldn't be a hard decision imo

Oh and in case you have a sack that got too dry. Lost its nose. Blast a couple shots of steam in the bag to make it appear fresh and unlock the fragrance for an extra day. We use a commercial suit steamer. Keep the bag from turning to dust. In case it's around awhile.
Haha we used that trick back in the day. Before we had the steamer my buddy just used a spray bottle and misted the buds if they were over dry.
I'll never forget the first time I saw him do it, we had about 35 pounds on drying racks and he took a 1L spray bottle and emptied it on the buds, gave them a little stir. Then looked at me with a smirk and said that's the easiest $3600 we'll ever make. Added about 2 pounds weight to the weed which was going for about $1800/lb at the time.
Surprisingly never saw mold or anything. Always just made the product a bit less crispy and smell a bit better.

That steamer was the real VIP. Made packs go up by 50 to 100 per. Hahaha. And it does work. So it's not cheating.

If you want to revive your over dried nugs without molding them get a gang of supermarket veggie cellophane bags and a few heads of lettuce and wrap the turkey bag you have the nugs in with the lettuce leafs. Keep leafs in place with vegetable cellophane bags. Keep overnight and they should revive within 24 hours depending on how dry they were.

I mean would just buy a box of Husky contractor bags. Fill them up. Use the bags to cure. I mean I would prefer to just bag the stuff after it's dry and trim. Off it goes. But if you want to cure lots cheap. Couple boxes of contractors bags by Husky is like 50 bucks.
Plastic bags for cure is never a good idea. Was my first mistake many years ago

There's a better way to bag a 100 pounds and sell it? No. Zip Zags and Husky bags. Always.
You put not fully dried marijuana flower in plastic bags. It will mold. Once its dried and cured , well thats normal

You package your load in anything else and you've created a huge hassle for the other end. They're a standard product.

You have to dry all the buds to perfection 12-15% moisture content, and aquire BPA free, smell free huge plastic boxes, fill 50-75% of them full, put them in a light free room at 21c 60% humidity, blurp and move buds from bottom to top at least once a day and the old curing mumbo jumbo as usual,still some work tho, that blue barrel plastic smell too strong for curing.

Yep agreed here, it's BS it doesn't need to blurp in grove bags.

Something like this, with air tight lids:
