Bruce, there are many important determining factors to consider when you first harvest.
Did you flush the plants with pure water before you harvested? You should.
when I harvest, I hang my branches upside down first, for 4 to 6 days, to air dry. I leave the smallest leaves on, to see when they are crispy dry. The buds will feel dry but are still very moist.
Then I put them in wide mouth Quart jars, in a cool dark place, and cure them for 4 weeks, opening the jars for 5 minutes, once a day.
