Do you recommend curing your trimmings prior to making hash?
I have a White Widow that I harvested about 12 weeks ago. I put the trimmings aside and the bud into cure jars. I used the trimmings after 3 weeks in my bubble bags, and made some pretty good hash. After about 6 weeks of curing, I started smoking the bud. Two nights ago, I smoked some of the very same bud, and it friggin' knocked my socks off! It has cured into a beautiful, potent, tasty smoke that I am now very proud of.
I'm now wondering; if I had cured the trimmings for 12 weeks, then made the bubble hash, would the hash have been more potent? I'm a refugee of another site that shut down without warning, and in my several years of participating on that board, I never read a recommendation to cure the trimmings before making hash. The common philosophy was to simply get the moisture content to the proper level for your hash making process and go.
By the way, I've made iso hash, gummby hash, silk screen hash, and bubble hash. If you haven't already, get some bubble bags TODAY and start making bubble hash. I'll never use another method again!
