How to Properly Cure Your Cannabis

How to Properly Cure Your Cannabis

It's the end of the harvest, the plants are dried, cut, and trimmed. Don't stop all your hard work just yet. There is one final step to the process called curing. Curing your buds at the end of harvest will make for a more desirable product and better overall taste when smoking. 

I have heard some people use brown paper bags to begin the curing process, yet if your buds are already dry, this may pull out that last remaining moisture you do want in the nug, causing it to become dried out and unusable. Jars I have found make wonderful containers for the curing process.

Get the Most Out of Your Cannabis Plants Using Nets & Yo-Yos

This was going to be a nets vs. yo-yos article, but I’ll tell you right now, using nets to help cultivate your cannabis is far more useful and helpful than just using yo-yos. That said, however, there is still a good use for your yo-yos; when combined with nets, you'll ensure the highest possible yield and quantity, so let’s take a look!

By supporting the heavy bud locations with nets and yo-yos, we can relieve the plant of having to give energy and time to strengthening its stocks. Instead, the nutrients can focus on bud production, resulting in higher quality product.
