What is curing?
Curing is the final step in the cultivation of cannabis, especially refining. It allows his cannabis to mature to reach its maximum level of cannabinoids, including THC and CBD.
What is curing for?
If you dried your cannabis properly,your cannabis flowers will never have completely dried. They will have retained a residual humidity of 10 to 15, and will be partially alive. Your flowers will always have bacterial activity, especially enzymes that make cannabinoids such as THCA and CBDA. Curing will keep your plants in the same condition which will make them mature. It can continue to gorge on cannabinoids for up to two years before continuing to degrade.
How to make a good curing?
Invest in food-grade glass jars and Bovedasachets. If you have done a good drying, 99 of the work will have already been done. Boveda bags are 58 or 62 humidity. You can put a hygrometer in the jar if you want to be sure of the humidity.
They should be kept in the dark at a temperature of no more than 20oC. You should open the jars once a day for about ten minutes to ventilate your cannabis. You can also brew your flowers regularly.
How long does curing last?
To speak of curing it is necessary to count at least 1 month after putting it in a jar. This is the minimum time for the refining of cannabis to be noticeable. It is possible to cure for longer, up to 6 months. This depends on the varieties and drying and cosnervation conditions.
Can I moisten flowers that have dried too much?
Yes, but you can’t talk about curing anymore. If your flower has dried too fast and the enzymes are dead, your cannabis no longer matura. But a cannabis kept at a good humidity will keep longer than a cannabis kept in an environment too dry. Beware, however, a cannabis that has not undergone good curing will be more susceptible to mold.
