    I recently asked my uncle, who is a grower, if I can have some bud. He's a pretty chill guy so, like every other time, he said yes.

    The problem is, when I went over his house, we only had around like 5 minutes to get bud (since I had to go somewhere). He couldn't find any bagged weed, so he just pretty much cut out a branch of his weed, put it in a shopping bag, and gave it to me.

    Now I'm home, and I understand that before I am able to smoke it, it must be properly dried and cured.

    So how do I do this, dear forum? I heard putting it in a ziplock bag and using a hair dryer works to dry it fast, is that true?
     
  2. let it hang for 4 days, put it in a jar for 30 days
     
  3. How do I go by hanging it?
    Sorry, I'm a noob :p

    Like, do I just tape it upside down to the wall or something?
     
  4. hanging them on a home made close line is a good method, you can use anything really
     
  5. I grow using the SCROG method. I remove all the leaves that don't have crystals. Then I cut off most of the stem and just let it sit on my screen for a few days. I then trim off the rest of the leaves and turn them into canabutter. The bud goes into jars to be consumed about a week later.

    I grow organically. My smoke doesn't give headaches when not cured 30 days. It's also extremely smooth. For standard nuts, you'll want to let it cure 30 days.

  6. Check Rumple's thread (its a sticky) in the harvesting and processing marijuana section of the forum, it will help you very much i believe :)
