    Not exactly, i grow for personal fulfillment and i'm just not into trimming. As long as there are trichomes on the leaves i see no point in trimming them off.

    But for each his own ;) Peace brother :bigjoint:

    68f to 74f and 50% to 60% relative humidity for initial drying. 5 to 10 days depending on how you break the buds down from the main stems. I wet trim my small buds an place on the racks. The bigguns I leave most inner leaves on and slower dry & on the string lines for a dry trim later. All my out door gets a dry trim and strung on lines for a longer 8 to 14 day dry. Because its so damn much and way leafier..outdoor crops.

    I get a SHIT TON of good grade frosty trim leaves every month or so. I bulk wholesale mine to a neighborhood processor. He asks me everytime do I want oil or cash or both.I pick oil (its oh so good) almost everytime. My patients arent having untrimmed flower. And neither am I. Its what wives..girlfriends..sisters and moms are for. Chicks (single moms especially in this podunk broke ass town) are hands down the better and more meticulous hand trimmers in my experience. And I take care of them.

    If youre not in shape, and out there eating like shit, yet sit there and talk about smoking plant matter. Please stfu, and sit down. I run 3 to 5 miles every morning, do muay thai/ jiu jitsu, and lift weights regularly. I smoke my homegrown buds with leaf all the time. People these days are so backward its hilarious.

    Does anybody have a preferred temp range for their curing buds? I usually burp my my bags and jars in my basement which stays 60F. I was wondering if I’m missing anything by possibly burping and storing buds in warming temps than what I currently do.

    Warmer temps will cure your buds faster. I've done lower and higher temps to verify. But I would like to do both at the same time, same strain to see if there's a difference in final product.

    Are you talking warmer temps curing in jar baggie or another container? Or warmer temps initial drying?

    Nope just curing. I'm curious if there is any difference between the final product when cured in colder or warmer room temps.

    I mean curing in mason jars at warmer temps. Been a while since I read up about it, but temps in the 90°s F were mentioned. When I did it, it was more like mid 80°s verses mid 60°s. Curing in mason jars like that is a fermentation process higher temps quicker fermentation.

    My mid 80°s temps weren't constant either. This was done in a shed without a door during summer, so night temps were 50°s.

    I don't think it would hurt, it would probably speed up the process a little. ^^
