Curing pounds

How do commercial grows cure there buds if at all?? Is the cure a necessary step? Can we dry then bag and not worry? I understand the drying should take 7-10 days but the curing is stumping me.

So these big commercial grows that throw down like 500lbs a harvest, they will cure their buds before sending them out correct?? Or do they dry it , bag it and send it out?? We are fairly sized and push around 50-60 a harvest, we are just starting and the grower I'm underneath says there is no time for it to cure. So I'm just wondering if those big ops take the time to properly cure their buds. Thanks for the answers tho! I was considering a 5 gal bucket. Does it matter if its plastic or stainless steel?? Thanks again!

Lots of places are turning n burning as fast as they can... so no cure.
If you want to set yourself apart from the normal, you’ll have to have something better !


You can lay them on their sides for easy view, N easy to turn them to keep it mixed .
But if your not able to get a little better number , is it worth the time ?

I cut then move to dry room
Then brake down to about 6-12” branches
Remove fans , hang for 5-7 days .
Cut & into buckets for 24. Then on a dry rack for a few hours or till outside is hard .
Then back into buckets, n burp 1 a day.
If my % is climbing highter then i like I’ll put that bucket on the dry rack for a couple hours , then back in the bucket n continue on with burping .
Be careful with big colas in this method, I like to keep aside to dry together as they can mold if your not watching close.

Curing is not and never was needed.

Curing is about time and fuckall to do with enclosing buds in a jar, thats storage not curing.

Commercial growers would hang for a couple weeks and longer then vac seal, hill farmers simply piled the dried bud in their barn for 6 months to a year.

Bud takes one week to dry and another for flavour and taste, curing dosent make flavour and taste its there from the dry.

If your jarring at 7-10 days thats too early, needs two werks to fully finish. No wonder early jarring noobs are thinking the cure makes the taste and smell, they never learnt the two week hang dry.

Its actually quite simple but a lot of stoners generally manage to fuck things up and get lost in their own egilos and not the 2000 year tradition of making pure dank ass product.

Fuck no dispensary weed isn't cured. You can't cure nitrogen-loaded salt-grown bud that's been sprayed with a dozen different fungicides throughout its 6-7 weeks of bloom. Honestly don't know who buys that shit. I've never, not once been able to gleen a damn thing about a new strain from a dispensary. Gelato? GMO? Skittlez? Fuck man this shit all smells fucked up, same smells over and over, none of them weed related, I don't know shit about strains from the past 20 years because dispensary weed is so fucking bad, and I keep growing the same old stuff.

And your boss wants to fit in with all those boof factories? It blows my mind how many people these days don't understand curing or see it as absolutely necessary in not only growing but breeding and selecting.

I've shared bagseed herb I wasn't proud of with dispensary shoppers before, that was 7 months old, and they said it was "the freshest bud they've ever smoked, the shit from the dispensary is all over a month old and turns to dust when you touch it!". Legalization is turning Cannabis fucking backwards and upside down. People think this shit is produce now, not an herb (and the H silent you fucking illiterate weirdos!)

I'm guessing you spray Neem BT and Trifecta for a living? Your boss doesn't care about quality, no legal growers do from what I have seen. Even the middle easterners cure their hash for a year minimum. What's all this live resin bulkshit about?

My herb has to be cured 3-4 months before it's presentable,but it's becoming a myth to the rest of the Cannabis world, just like flushing. If your bud is quality, most of the curing can be done in nylon oven bags. If your buds been sprayed with green cure and seranade or fed 1500ppm up to the day of harvest don't even bother.

Jungle boys slow the dry down in totes at the end. You can put it in turkey bags with a 58 boveda if you want to cure.

Two week hang dry and then into bags? Thats perfect. We flush before harvest and not trying to fit in just trying to get the product right. The last batch smelled of hay (I wasn't involved with that one) I'm legit here asking questions hoping for some mentoring not people jumping down my throat. Lots of hate for big growers.. I thought stoners were nice people yo. We aren't corporate , we are small time and currently learning, excuse my ignorance.

No one flushes its bad technique except if you just realized you added ten times the normal dose of ferts and needed to try to instantly correct your mistake.

If you want a stoner comment suggest you write a thread on favourite strain or post on non serious debate type questions.

No flushing here - thoughtfully created organic, water only soil - start to finish - I laugh at my friends who still grow with salts and the latest 'boosters'.

I dry for 3-5 days, throw 'em into tubs and pop lids every day until they hit 65% - then slowly work 'em down to 62-63% over the next 3-5 weeks..

Curing is as much an art form as growing is. It's so much fun to watch it change in so many ways as you progress throughout the curing process.

We have been dry hanging for 2 weeks, and then bucking them of the stem, and storing them in the CureTubes until we can get it all run through the GreenBroz trimmer, and then do a final hand trim. This is also were we store the final product while filling orders. IF you do a long dry time, you have already started the cure process.
