    I have some sour diesel that hung dry for 8 days to find out that it is over dry. I am putting it in air tight containers and burping them ever so often. What can I add to the weed to put some moisture back into it. I dont want to affect the smell. Someone told me to use a tortilla. Would that work and how would I go about doing it. Thanks.

    get a cottonball, wet it, place it in tin foil, poke holes in tin foil.

    Let it sit in jar with bud, for couple hours, should return moisture to ur buds.

    With the cotton ball strategy/ Do I want to soak it and place it in tin foil or soak it and squeeze heavy water out first??

    Another trick is to put your buds in a jar along with a few fresh orange peels. Shake the jar or rearrange the nugs and peels every four hours so to ensure better moisture distribution. Be careful how many orange peels you use cuz you can easily over moisturize your nugs. Have used it many times before with "crumbly" bud.

    All I do (and I've done it b4 is put them in ziploc vegetable bags (the one's with holes in 'em) and throw it in the fridge check every so often and yur herb will suck the moisture outta the fridge.. no mold even moisture no adding shit

    I just stick wet paper towel to the edge the container and seal. Trenton in my experience it is easier to use a little bit of water and then see how the bud feels, you would want to squeeze out most of the water depending on how much your trying to rewet.

    throw it in the fridge with some Orange Peels for a few hours and it will be fine.

    Skin just the other layer of a lemon peel and stick it the jar overnight. A couple of strips will do. Remove the peels in the morning to prevent mold. You should be good after that. Just keep "burping" the jars a regular intervals and the faint smell of lemon should dissipate as well.

    I put 3 ounces in 3 different jars with orange peels, for 10 hours. I gained 8 grams and the nug gained so much moisture. It works unreal.

    hey trenton....I have always just taken a fresh small bud plucked from a plant (of course it matters to have such) and throw it in with the too dired, and seems to have worked well in the past. and you can monitor it and take it out once the desired moisture has been achieved, or even add another if that one dried out....good luck man!

    ya for adding a small bud, i have also heard of using a fresh picked leaf from another plant if you didnt want to use a bud.

    I use fresh leaves, pluck enough to cover the bud in a rubbermaid container, seal it up, check the next morning and you should see execellent results.

    Found this in an old Google search.
    Resurrecting for any fellow n00bs in crisis.

    Definitely good information here... Made an extremely noobish error, long story short had my room at 15 RH , 71 Degrees for 5 or so hours before I noticed. A good amount of my buds were ruined (squeeze to dust).. No telling how much yet but a decent amount. I put them in a large tuppaware, threw half an apple in there, and they've instantly bounced back after less than 4 hours of it being in there.

    Now I'll be burping them for the next couple days before jarring them. I know it's pretty much over for trying to cure it, but hell, the physical quality of the bud is day and night.

    I have a feeling I have some super dry buds hanging in The drying closet.
    I chopped down a plant two weeks ago and had to leave town due to my dad passing. I have friends staying at my house but won't bug them with jarring my stash or watering my plants.
    Im sure there is death everywhere. Meh, I will try a few methods to see if anything actually works when I get home in a few days.

    We had like tree dust and it's now bounced back to pretty nice buds.
