    when you quick dry a sample bud no matter how you do it you're not gonna get the taste you want without curing. i just hang the buds in a closet that i installed a 100cfm bathroom exhaust fan in. if it's only 1 bud it should be dry in a day or 2. it usually takes about 5-7days to dry my entire crop that way. i also have a food dehydator that i use for water curing. you can dry out a single bud in 30min or less in one of those.

    Hello friendowl I've tried quite a few ways, put them under the grill, frazzled them . I've put them in the oven , frazzled them.
    There was once I put them in the leg of am old pair of tights and put them in the clothes drier and absolutely nothing happened
    Never tried the microwave though.


    The best way is like justaseed has said, small speace and heat. I also just put them in a cardboard shoe box, place it on the top of the ballast and turn them regularly. Depending how long the lamp is running they usually dry in a day or two.



    love mand xxx



    Oh the taste isn't very good though

    The best thing to do is cut a small piece and still let it air dry for a couple days. I usually put a piece on top of the pc. Any of the other instant drys are not going to give you a good idea because of the loss of THC.

    i used to see you around at og, it's good to see you here. i've been worried about alot of the og'ers. the only way i contacted alot of peolpe there was through pm's so since you know what happened i've had no contact.

    I would not get in the habit...but, you can microwave it for 15-30 seconds at a time until it is dry. You can tell the type high you will get and where the plant is in that respect, but it will be a little harsh...I did it, got high, it works.

    I use a bare 60 watt light bulb, with a dog food can around it that has had both ends removed. On top of the can, about 1" above the bulb, is a peice of wire mesh. I put the weed there and it is dry in about a half hour. Tastes great too...

    You have a pic FriendOwl?
    And wouldnt you be able to know if your high by how you feel, not just by how your eyes look?
    Ive had people tell me my eyes were fucked up and bright red, but i wasnt feelin high at all.

    Justaseed, how do you use the food dehydrator for water curing? Do you just dry the weed in there?

    you put the buds in a bucket of water for 7 days, changing the water every day. on the seventh day take the buds out and put them in the dehydrator on the lowest setting. check it every 30-45 min and remove dry buds. usually takes a few hours for 2-3oz. it makes the buds alot darker and kinda kills the taste, that's why i don't do it to often anymore.
