ok a little story, so I live in the south of the UK and have used many varied methods over the years for drying/curing. The 'standard' method (shown on many sites) worked but is quite labour intensive (leading to inconsistency, for me). Over the years, I began to find that buds in my old trimming bags tasted amazing when smoked (better then my cured product at times). This lead to me switching from mason jar curing to using my old trimmings bags to dry and cure my buds (by layering fresh buds between thick layers of dried trimmings). Over time, I added a preliminary drying (in small cardboard 'instant coffee' boxes) first. Then, after approx. 5 days in these small cardboard boxes, I would move these partially dried buds into the old trimming paper bags. For me, this 2 step method works and gives me a consistent product with no burping, checking moisture levels etc (just bag and leave). Imo - I even found that differing the dried trim (differing the strain) allows me to imbue subtle flavours from other strains into the strain I am currently drying (I was inspired by the way Jasmine tea was originally made). fyi - Using the same strain (for the dried trim and for the product being dried) seemed to intensify the strains flavours (imo). Does anyone else use a method like this? To me, it feels more like a 'natural' way to dry buds ..I figure simple methods like this were commonly used in the past? Anyway, give it a try for yourself. Try the simplest way: Drop a few fresh cut+trimmed buds right into the middle of one of your old dried trim bags (the old trim must be fully dry), fully cover and close bag. Then, check back in a few weeks (or just leave it be for two/three months for a great cure Once you experience the simple method you can then add steps (as you like) to tailor to your needs/gain better product. So that's it. I hope this info helps get someone good product Feel free to add any 'simple' drying ideas you have come to over the years.
