    Do you manicure before or after drying?

    Well, its about time for me to figure this part of the process out, and I seem to be getting conflicting info. Some ppl manicure their buds when they cut down the plant, then dry. Others cut off the large leaves and stuff, but do the final manicure once the plants have dried.

    So whats better? Manicure it completely fresh or after its dry?

    The less you handle the buds the better off you and they will be!

    It is easier when the plant is fresh and the leaves aren't all drooping over the buds.

    Right on, thanks for the replies guys, I was planning on manicuring them the day we cut them down then drying them out, but then I was reading KP's cannabis college and it got me thinking of doing it the other way. I'll probably stick to what I was gonna do and trim them bitches fresh. Plus, I'm impatient and want to trim, never have before

    Takes a while for me to trim but it is fun. Get a razor to scrape the "scissor hash" off the blades. It always seemed to me that the leaves would dry up if you left them on the bud and would simply crumble off when removed. I do it before hand.

    I do a careful trim still wet, leaving the buds on the stems for drying, and then do the final manicure when I cut the buds off the stems to go in for jar curing.

    Use vegatable oil to clean your hands and sissors. Then wash with soap. No need for alcohol.

    try cleaning out your pipe with vegatable oil, dutch pimp is right, alcohol works much faster and evaporates quickly, it can also be used to make hash.
