Im preparing for the curing process, Does anyone know how long you should do this for? Are there different results for doing it longer or shorter? Anyone got any cool tricks up their sleeves or things that worked well? Thanks for the help. :v:

After the buds have dried (crispy outside and the smallest stems snap) fill your airtight container(s) 3/4 full.
Week 1 open each container for 5 min each day.
Week 2 open each container every 3 days for 2 minutes.
Enjoy your smoke and add bovada packs if desired (don’t do this before week 3 since the idea is to move moisture from the inside to the outside of the buds) and continue opening once a week for 5 minutes.

The flavors, smoothness and aroma will continue to improve for 3-6 months.

For storage beyond 6 months buds should be kept frozen.

Its all on how u dry it nice cool spot since its a outdoor grow i would wash em first about a cup of hydrogen peroxide per 5 gallons set u up 3-4 buckets and just dip em for about 5 mins in each bucket WATCH THE SHYTT THAT WILL COME OFF YOUR PLANTS this will also help with your drying remember its all about temps wen drying with a good dry will come a good cure and u never know how long because every plant is different u gonna have to use your best judgment every plant has different chlorophyll levels leafy plants (indica) take longer this should help u if not just GOOGLE IT :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::rolling_on_the_floor_laughing::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes::face_with_rolling_eyes:

Agreed with @Athos

The longer you do it the better the buds will be, smoother and stronger, up to 6 months. At minimun do it 1 month.
