    why would you want to compress it, just keep that shit in jars. isnt the point of growing in the first place so u dont have to smoke that shitty brick weed? its just gonna decrease potency.

    When your stashing elbows it's good idea to conceal best as possible. Compressing w/ trash compactor , can crusher, car jack. Good Luck

    There is a difference between someone wanting to compress good bud and mexi brickweed.

    The mexi stuff is often trash compacted before it is dry (much less cured) and ferments...hence the funky smell.

    I agree with curing and storing in glass jars (out of light!), but I understand that there is something to compressing. As far as the trichs being damaged and losing potency...light, time, temp, and O2 are the enemy of THC...compressing slows down the decomposition due to light and o2.

    I used to manicure each perfect bong rip and marvel at the beauty of each one....I got so much bud (none pressed!) that I can play with any time I want that I now grind it in a grinder with a kief catcher and jam a day or twos worth into a container that I can just pinch a toke out of easily. For traveling this would be nice to compress, as it comes right back to life.

    Of course you would not want to compress wet or uncured bud.

    Large amounts could be made into pucks in a 2" pvc pipe, ram with a wood dowel fit to inside dia. of pipe. It works good for keeping light and O2 from degrading the flowers of MJ's cousin, Hops.

    I have a "Makin's clay extruder" (looks like a hash press with a t-bolt to tighten) that I use for hash and would work well for bud also, but it makes little pucks the diameter of a U.S. dime (actually use two dimes inside so it does not extrude)

    I agree with Hayduke too! Bout 6 months ago my good buddy was getting 10 lbs a month shipped in from oregon, every single pound was made into a "brick", and trust me, this was no shit weed! i'm sure a bit of potency was lost from smashing it together, but these nuggets were dried and cured perfectly and was some of the best dank i've every smoked...there were purps, kush's, and diesels, ahh, sooo delicious...we'd open all of it up and break it apart and it would actually come back to life so to speak, and after a few days in jars you couldn't even tell it was compressed...they definetely knew what they were doin...apparently dude that was sending em owns 5 grow houses and has been in the game for 12 years!

    among old school stoners this is absolute taboo. If you get caught, it is on you and keep your f'n mouth shut...they are not going to water board you, they will just tell lies.

    I also did not find anything incriminating about his post.
