New chef here. No reason to cure, right?

    So I want to give making some edibles a try for the first time. I have one plant that isn't curing right (smells a bit hayish), and some leftover from a previous grow. They're both super silver haze. My personal fave FYI.

    Since I'm going to be making some butter or tincture, there's no reason to cure the bud. Simply drying it out is all i need?

    I have seen my wife cook with it before it was even fully dry. I would imagine curing would effect taste more than anything though.

    No need to cure for edibles, you can if you want.

    Hello JacksonJ,

    When it comes to making edibles, you do not necessarily need to used a cured product... in order to make potent budder/oil , you are going to want to decarboxylate...doing so will increase potency(by activating THC into 'THCA'), add a slight browning to the plant material, and will give it its own unique smell. Therefore, making the curing of the plant almost irrelevant.

    Hope this helps,
