Do buds need curing for edibles

  1. Should buds be trimmed and cured if only for edible or can I go from drying them then right to decarbing to make my oil?
    Thanks for your advice the plant on right is for my edibles.

  2. Just dry them and you're good.
    Curing is for a smooth smoke of the plant matter.

    I second that motion. I did that exact thing & didn't notice a difference. If I had a sample of each side by side to test who knows? EDIT for a tincture, I'm speaking of, for a gummy etc IDK.

  5. How else are you gonna remove that starchy green taste....? maybe you like it?
     
  6. When I worked on the commercial farm some or allot of products like hash the weed/buds are going directly into the freezer. Green not dried,......................Fresh cut or harvested
    Wished I still had some of hash Its a light tanned color ( blond ) and its really good.
    I have made a shit ton of hash , The master grower pretty much said go away to me because his way produces a better quality

    I am not educated on making extracts ..
    The trichomes with the thc is on the outside of the plant.... dried or not.

    I know this thread is not about hash but it seems there are new ways of making certain extracts now that conoidic the older ways of making certain extracts.

    Off topic i am sure 20220906_141458 (1).jpg

    Bubble hash, Live resin and butter the buds are cut off the plant at harvest and put in the freezer green.
    I have always dried my weed first, every book i have read about making hash or butter or live resin says dry the weed. :confused_2:

  19. sounds ez enough to try. the wife was so wiped out on 2 drops of the concentrate that friends were concerned.:blush:
    gonna make some "simple" green dragon tinc (I love the color) for the lightweights, using the "scientific method" of course. :hola:
     
  20. My wife can only handle CBD honey that I make. She can't handle no THC anything. I got some CBD deisal from cropking ,20% CBD, -1% THC . It's a nice change from the thc and if I eat a gram I'll get a nice functional buzz. I grew CBD for the 1rst time last year,I'll always grow it now.
