Hey Dan! I’ve been told a variety of things regarding curing. Anywhere from 3 days to a month. Personally I like to cure for at least a week. But I do notice quality keeps improving the longer it cures (if you have the patience). Good luck!:+1:

The longer as possible ! A friend makes me smoke a RQS Royal haze of 2011 in 2012 if I remember well and it was .... like in a cofee shop ! And the same in 2011 was an average haze ! But my cuing is around 1 month if I need to smoke quickly (sometime 2 weeks but not recommended) and 3 if I want to please myself ! Hope it will help you :kissing_heart:

Personally, the first level cure should take 2 to 3 weeks, with daily opening of curing jars. This improve smell and taste dramatically. After this a further 2 months of curing is a 2nd level cure where potency notably increases. After this the added quality to the buds by extra curing is real, but slow, a 6 month cure (total time) gives you really strong stuff.

Expect approximately 3 months to draw out the full flavour of the strain (this is post 7-10 day dry of course). If you’re jarring the bud then it’s best to open the lids and let the bud breathe for 10 minutes every day for the first couple weeks to a month. After a month then maybe once or twice every couple weeks until it smells perfect. Agree with stick (as always it seems) - at 6 months she should be prime. Keep in mind that the bud will also pick up the scent and taste of the environment you dry it in until it’s had this time to cure. Ie. If you don’t want your weed smelling like the lumber of a musty shed for the first 3 months, don’t dry it in there (I learned this the hard way lol). Happy token dude! :facepunch:

Hi @ChefDan420! The longer the better, however I've often heard that 6 months would be the peak. After this, we're not talking about curing but long-term conservation, and methods differs. How long will you be able to last? Patience is the key :innocent:
