    smell of buds during drying process

    K i looked everywhere for an answer to this but no luck =(
    i just harvested my buds a few days ago and they are drying right now... however, the first day of harvest they smelled really potent but they've slowly been losing their "weed" smell and starting to smell like "greenary" - this is worrying me.... is this normal during the drying process because the chlorophyll is being evaporated? will the "weed" smell come back after im done curing them?

    thanks =)

    Yes. This is normal, although it shouldnt completely loose its weed smell.

    The weed smell is that of the trichomes, and as the plant grows, the trichomes grow, therefore meaning they are not crystalls yet, they are small mushrooms containing oils.

    As they dry, they go hard.

    Once the buds are dry, and the stem can be snapped easily, you can start to cure them.

    *Make sure the buds dry, you dont want it molding.*

    During the curing process you break down the chlorophyl and other chemicals what give it the planty smell.

    The weed smell will come back, more potent, and it'll taste better, smoke better, and it'll be alot smoother.

    The key is patience my friend.

    Also, curing activates more THC so cured bud is way more potent than fresh bud.

    Chill Bluntwiz.. after around 14 days drying and curing you will smoke your stoner socks off.. The green smell is the chlorophil, it is breaking down.. Gee i love vegetable.. try not to be too tempted to smoke your gear too early.. often the longer you leave it to cure the more pungent and smokable your product becomes
