Its getting to be that time so I've been reading up on drying and curing. The more I read the more confused I get between which is which and why. I've read silvernomad's post on curing http://www.rollitup.org/general-mar...t-curing-methods.html?highlight=curing+drying which I think is also from Ed Rosenthal's book, and I read Widow's methods in that same thread. I read this article on drying Drying The Marijuana Plant After Harvest and this article on curing from the same site Curing the Marijuana Plant. They seem pretty good. Then I go and read something else that contradicts them. My questions -- How are drying and curing different? Even the experts seem to mix the two up somtimes. -- Is it true you don't need to cure sensimilla? -- Expert growers, what are your methods of drying and curing. How long do you do each and WHY do you do it that way and that long? I know this is a lot of questions but all my reading has me more confused than ever on this subject. Widow's methods for both seem easy and fast and I'll probably give them a try, but I'd feel better if I understood what I was doing and why. Thank you all the good help.
