Hi @mrhat2001! I won't recommend such kind of post harvest treatment. You worked hard for months in order to get those buds fat and frosty, you don't want to ruin your final product with a risky method. You should flush your medium, to get the optimum potency/taste, but don't touch your buds, even with your fingers, trichomes are precious (and fragile), a badly done washing operation may lead to resin loss or worst. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and enjoy your harvest! :facepunch:

Washing the buds is a wierd one. I mean there are uses for it for example if you get a late flower bug infestation you can try to wash spider mites off your bud. Also water curing is a form of bud washing I guess, but it's too scary to me. What you want to do is completely submerge your bud in water and clean the water out every day or twice a day for two or three days, then dry your bud like you would normally do. It makes the drying and curing process take less time, but you're fully submerging your bud - which i find terrifying. Other than those two reasons, there s not many other reasons you would want to wash your bud. Up to you at the end of the day ! maybe try washing with just a few colas, and see if it's any better than not washing? that way if there's damage, it's limited. dassit :rocket:
