Quickly Dry your Marijuana Buds
Drying marijuana (weed) quickly
Fast & quick ways to dry your cannabis buds
I'd like to share a few different ways to quick-dry your marijuana and cannabis buds for fast sampling.
Please remember though, that properly dried and cured marijuana only gets better with time. It smokes smoother without harshness or the green taste. However, these tips to drying your weed quickly work very well.
You do retain THC levels, they may get crispy (the buds silly), but these function just fine. These processes will help you dry your pot quickly and be able to enjoy it in minutes or a few hours. And then you should be 'crispy' too.
Place your trimmed buds on a cookie sheet spread out evenly. Set your oven to 125-140 degrees Fahrenheit (no hotter!). Leave for 10 minutes, remove for 5 minutes and turn buds. Repeat once more.
Rig a flat piece of 10" foil to be held under a 100 watt light bulb (no hotter) within 2-4 inches. Turn your buds every 1-2 minutes. Should be smoke-able within about 10-15 minutes time.
Take your buds and flatly wrap them in paper or use a paper envelope and place them over your water heater, radiator, or the back of your TV. Pot should be dry in a few hours or overnight.
Place buds flat on a plate. Use your microwave on 50% power or less (important not to burn). Set for only 10-12 seconds at a time, remove and turn, repeat as necessary. Done quickly, be careful.
I've heard you can use a food dehydrator, it takes a little longer (hours) but should work as well if you have one one of these.
Also, if your buds get too dry (crispy), you can put them in a ziploc bag or glass sealable jar with a piece of orange peel... yep, it will smoke much nicer by morning.
NEVER have your heat source be more than 150 degrees Fahrenheit! Any hotter will actually burn or vaporize the THC or resin glands...this IS what gets you high, so be careful of this.
These tips should help you enjoy a little of your smoke a little faster... However - I still recommend proper drying and curing - You WILL notice the difference.
