Man, this is a fast moving thread lol.

im gonna leave this here.



I love that Tree wen the extra mile and typed 'out of doors'.

This brings up a good discussion, what do you all think about drying at a higher temp / lower humidity than the traditional wisdom? SharkMouseFarms is a huge proponent of starting at 72F / 55%. They claim it speeds up dry in a safe way (terpene profile) while reducing chance of mold and other complications from extended drying sessions.



For me the drying thing hasnt been a one size fits all. I have genetics that i trim fresh because they are a PITA to trim dry, and even with fan leaves removed just takes too long. Those plants have also responded fairly well to drying in warmer temps with lower humidity, but then ive had to deal with the ass pains of trimming those plants dry. And went back to fresh trimming.

I've had sativa's where any extended visits while drying close to 80 have significantly messed up the terp profile.


Now a days though, i just make decisions based on bud/leaf ratios, and how much of a pain the plant is to trim wet/dry and create an environment based on those observations that should allow me a 9-14 day dry time. Depending on local weather conditions sometimes i haven't even bothered with a humidifier. And i don't grow commercially or for profit/selling anymore either, so im way less scrupulous when it comes to drying and trimming methods. My bubba x gelato, fresh trimmed, at 70/55% still takes like 10 days to dry. If you you didn't trim first and hang in at LEAST conditions like that, it takes like 20 days to dry. I have some sativas that would be damn near flavorless if i did something like that to them.

All that being said, only a couple times in about 20 years of growing have i inadvertently dried my stuff too fast and messed up the terp content, and it was pretty early on, and i learned from that first hand. Only once have i had any mold on drying product, and it was also flood raining every day almost during that period and i had multiple dehumidiers running and a flooding basement. I Lost less then an ounce though.

In recent growing times, even in a DWC tent, i haven't even bothered keeping track of humidity's and temperatures, growing or drying. I had got so used to my strains, and my growing environment i was accurate enough just judging my own perceptions/sensations.

Although now, im about 5 or 6 years out of practice, in a new place, on new land, in a new region. It'll prob be a couple years here til im able to wing it effectively.

Weather and individual plant traits completely controle how i handle processing the buds though. And i have several different wys to go about it really. In a commercial environment it's different, figuring out a good enough method that can one size fits all your plants is hugely beneficial to your bottom line, the easiest thing to control and tune per plant is just how long it will stay in the environment, and shortening the processing times also greatly impacts your bottom line to the good.

Well sometimes I do t have a choice in the matter, last summer was a tough one here, it was 81 days of over 100f true, and stupid high eh even with a dehumidifier and window unit in the lung room.
You can try to mitigate it the best you can. But we ain’t no match for momma. She was salty .
But as far as opening up terp profile, I always prolonged to dry, would even take plants on the hang, into the bathroom on the bi monthly every 3rd Thursday, shower day , let them get a rh spike to slow that moisture
Draw and get that terp profile into gear a bit.
Sometimes I have to do some dumb or unorthodox shit to offset this hell scape in summer.

One day, this state will somehow force me to run both a dehumidifier and humidifier in the same room together.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but to summarize your response; I don't agree with this shit, the slower the better in my experience.

Is that what I'm to believe?

Yeah, I try for 14 days hoisted if I can. I live in the swamp it’s bad with conditions, you can disagree all you would like man everyone has their own way of doing it.

But generally have to get the stuff in the jar by day 8-10 depending ona bunch of factors, flower density ambient temps and rh.
outside temps and rh. And running big ass gear that can get warm at peak summer.

106°f is the hottest recorded temperature ever here. 75-95°f is the standard range where I am in the summer. Over 100f is a hard nope, I would just quit.

Also. I have never had mold. So I guess I dodge that bullet because I’ve been doing this a 1/4 of a century homie,

I’ve had higher temperatures rob me of my finished products terps before, and mold once, also at higher temperatures, without adequate airflow. So now if I have a bushy plant with contact with other buds, buck it up and hang on clothes hangers. My experience with all different temperature ranges and humidity levels , is that my best cures happen when I dry for 14 days, as close to 60 degrees sometimes as high as 70 degrees with humidity around 55-50%. Stuff that’s jarred and cured after that still holds a strong nose at first crack of a jar one and half to two years later. This isn’t what I strive for, as much as hope for. My lung room will hit 90 degrees plus some years during the summer. And subsequently stay at 62-65degrees from October through May.

@Captspaulding I saw your bird this morn, I kinda figured you for a Mopar man
man, I’ve said it a few times, it’s been racing on the 1/4 mile since 1971. I was born the next model year. 🤣 it’s a championship car when it was still ihra in 87, it got the points iron man in nationwide super pro
the history is dark, and sad as fuck,
But I’ll be damned is she ain’t fucking fast, has a 60ft that will rip your face off, I have to really get off my ass and replace the rest of the rods and the rocker arm I broke. Weekend before last. it’s my favorite thing earth. The car is literally harnessing my pops spirit.
9 sec car,
3000 lbs with me in it.

This is the first time on earth I’ve ever heard say faster cures are better. Or Ami lost here?

Seen the fucking prices for a can of beans these days?

It puts me a blazing terrible mood when I see it

3.00 for a can of fucking beans?

Did I miss something about the global economy hurting so bad that back in the shadows, beans are being priced out the roof?
It really goes to show, that the wealth gap is increasing to a point that is whole fully unsustainable.

I love beans man. But 3 bucks a can?

Fuck that
For real like these bean companies don't already have like 75% of our total gdp. It's just never enough with these people

Damn, quick google search, was going to guess '71 but you spoiled it.
