    I have a white widow ak47 cross that dried out way too quickly. The RH while jarred is 48%. Would it make the most sense to make edibles out of it? I know that it won't cure under 55%. What would be the ups/downs of making edibles versus smoking?

    You can always make concentrate if you still want to have something smokeable/vapable.

    Poorly dried/cured grows dont get better as edibles/concentrates. Takes a lot of quality product to producel.

    Smoke it and learn from your mistakes. I grew for 10 years before i really felt i was starting to get a feel for things.

    You haven't mentioned if you have tried it yet, it may be ok for smoking anyway

    If you have new plants going clip some fresh leaves to throw in the jars with the buds.

    Take the jar and put it in the freezer for a week. It makes great joint weed.

    Thanks for the advice... I think I'll try adding fresh leaves. I seem to have this problem with sativas. They fill out and smell great before harvest but dry quickly and lose smell. Didn't help that we had cold/dry weather come through the area reducing the RH. What's weird is that the buds still seem a little moist toward the stem but the humidity still reads low. I tried smoking it but it wouldn't burn so I don't know.

    My indicas dried more slowly and are curing at 65-67% RH. Much better look, texture, and smell.

    You could try an use it for dry sift if you have any screens, not sure how the end results would turn out.

    the little buds seem moist towards the stem because they are. the stem holds quite a bit of moisture, and the buds will have to absorb it and sweat it out as part of the drying process.if you put a few big sun leaves in a jar with that stuff for a day or two it'll soften back up. it won't cure anymore, once it gets too dry, the cure is over, but you can bring it back to a little better quality than it is right now

    actually, i'd probably make hash out of it as well, mid quality hash is a lot better than mid quality weed

    I thought my last harvest was a bit too dry, by the end of the jars it was pretty neat weed.

    I never understood why until yesterday you cant restart the cure.

    According to the dude on a podcast it had something to do with the destruction of volatile terpens.
    Possibly other stuff as well.. I cant remember big words

    He was a lot more long winded about it.

    But It helped me to understand it is not as simple as just adding water.
    The water was protecting something while it was present and the lack of water killed that.

    You can get the bud moist now but that's it.
