    the purpose of curing is to slowly remove moisure from your buds. why would you reverse the process by putting them in the freezer?

    you put it into the freezor once cured because its dry thus moisture shouldn't be formed on them and its to stup the curing process

    You sure about that? In a fridge that isn't full of food & beverages? I'd think the freezer would suck the water right out of the air.

    I agree, any fridge or freezer will pull out moisture, rather than add it. That's what 'freezer burn' is, and why fridges have 'veg' drawers.

    If drying in a refrigerator, plugged in, worked don't you think the industry would utilize that method instead of slow drying? Refrigeration works by removing the heat from the surrounding air. It does nothing to lower humidity. So explain where the ice comes on the outside of items placed in the freezer? Can it be done? You see guys walking a wire over the Grand Canyon so this is easy. Yes but it's not the best.

    me explain? what are you talking about bud we are the ones asking the question looking for an explanation? is it a temp problem? because like I said the humidity in my fridge is 60, which is optimal HM for curing,so is it a temp problem then? Do you know or not? or is there someone knowledgeable who can answer?

    I do not think it will work due to the lack of air flow. With what little experience I do have, I think if it did work it would take 3 to 5 times longer (3 weeks in lieu of 4 days with proven methods). .....my 2 cents anyways.

    Dehumidifiers, Air Conditioners, Freezers and Refrigerators all move air over a "cold" or "cool" coil. Cold air holds less moisture than warm air. The water vapor in the air condenses on the coil. The water then drains off of the coil and into a drain pan or it freezes onto the freezer coil. All of these devices will dehumidify or dry to a certain extent. Industrial freeze driers will turn vegetables into a dry powder in minutes. Freezers will dry bud.
