2/3 loss, maybe more, maybe less
doesn't matter, it's the moisture you're focusing on with the cure, or so i've been led to believe.
thats why you burp it during curing

I take my total wet weight and subtract 77% and its always turned out perfect.
That number is my number due to the way I trim, dry and cure. It will differ, not by a whole lot, but depending on how you trim, how much stem you leave etc...

Its usually about 1/4 of the wet weight for me. The last harvest had a wet weight of just over 24lbs and the dry weight came in at 6.1lbs. That sounds very close to what boneman said.
100 grams wet = about ..... ABOUT 1 oz. for me anyway
That is about 72% for you bba.

Once mine are done drying, I do a final trim before placing into curing jars. I try to get every single bit of stem cut out before curing.
