Get yourself a humidity/temp monitor. Dry buds 5-10 days, watch for being able to pluck a small bud of easily without the stem peeling away, it should just snap off. Trim em and put into air tight jars...some jars have a humidity reader on the lid(but theyre a bit costly). Shake and open jars each day for 10-20 min, repeat for many weeks, then open jars maybe once a week to breathe. Happy harvesting.

Hi @Mexicanwear! Before the curing process you need to make sure that your buds have correctly dried. Under-drying will ruin the final product by making it unsmokable and this may lead to mold/rot. Over-drying will also affect the final product, because you will loose most of the terpenes and potency, however this is easier to fix (by re-humidifying the buds). Now regarding the curing process, jars are the best way to go, avoid paper or plastic bags because they will increase the risk of mold. I use 1L jars in transparent glass, I fill them up to ~60% because some air must remain in the jars, especially for the first weeks of the process. In case of transparent jars, you must protect them from any source of light, so I keep them in a closet. I open the jars everyday (5-10 mins), then I move the buds and look for mold/mildew, then I re-lay the jar upside-down in the closet. This daily opening process lasts for 2 weeks, then it becomes a monthly process. I usually keep on curing for 2 to 3 months, but you can cure up to 6 months, with an average RH (~50-60%). I don't use Boveda Packs because I usually have this average relative humidity once jars are closed, plus I'm not a fan of its chemical composition (potassium citrate monohydrate + xanthan gum). If you don't like jars and can afford a dedicated tool to cure your weed, Cvault has created a nice curing container, take a loot at https://www.cvaultstorage.com/. It's a game of patience and surveillance. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date, and enjoy your harvest :facepunch:
