How To Quick Dry Your Marijuana Buds

How to quick dry cannabis

For those who who can’t wait and need a quick method to dry your marijuana plants you should hang them upside down in a dark room and increase the temperature in the room to more than 90% Fahrenheit (about 32% Celsius). This will probably require an electric- or gas-powered heater. The room should be well ventilated, but if the buds are rather tightly packed a large amount of marijuana can be dried in less than a week. If there is no specific need to do this, then taking an extra week is worth it.

For one thing, if buds are dried close together and any mold should appear, its spread will be rapid and fatal. Also, the increased heat can cause the marijuana plants to dry unevenly depending on their orientation in the room. Finally, they might dry out too quickly and once again you’ll face the problem of dry, brittle buds that don’t smoke evenly or taste nearly as good as naturally grown buds should taste. Make sure to download my free grow guide for much more drying tips at this link here

Pay attention and make the necessary adjustments. If the room is too humid increase the airflow without decreasing the temperature. Make sure that heat is reaching all parts of the plant equally and your marijuana buds should be fine. The best method however is to allow the buds to dry in a cool dark place over the course of a few weeks. Patients is a virtue in terms of well cured bud.

If you want to quick dry just a little marijuana for more immediate consumption, place then on a cookie sheet or oven tray, and bake at a temperature of between 150 and 200% Fahrenheit (about 65 to 95% Celsius) for about 10 minutes. It won’t taste as good as the slow-cured bud and will likely be harsh, as all water has been aggressively removed from the plant and plant chlorophyll has not degraded, but you shouldn’t sacrifice any of the bud’s potency.

Watch it carefully, though; if it burns or becomes too dry you might as well add it to your organic compost heap for next year’s cannabis crop because it won’t be any good for smoking. This would only happen if you’re careless, or if the heat is well above 200% Fahrenheit.

This extreme measure is best used as a short-term remedy to test the quality of the pot, or perhaps to tide you over through a dry spell while you’re waiting the week or so for the main harvest. Whichever method you choose, make sure that you monitor each bud for signs of mold and remove those immediately from the drying area. Mold can be as detrimental to your marijuana plant as any other pest, human or animal.

    1. Robert your seeds are 100%. I highly recommend them to any grower. The seeds are first rate, and fresh. Germination is a breeze. No other supplier can offer this. Keep the up the good work. I will be back for more.

    2. Just about a year ago i had ordered seeds ,shipping was great less than 8 days .
      packageing was fantastic was opened and sealed by P.O. got everything ok .had 3 not germinate and immediately after my note got replacements.
      Just saying “Thanks”

    3. I would like to offer two thoughts to my love and personal touches to growing.
      My. preference would be to let my plant die humanely by letting it dry on the vine. rather than slicing it the lower regions and hanging it up.
      My other concern would be not to expect 100% of your seeds to grow (even after germination). bearing that in mind and Roberts guarantee on his various strains, a trade appears eminent in as much as replacement. in terms of time.
      and needs. The extra 5 seeds free on the next order could be traded for a bottle of protection. which in my case could be possible future root rot.
      This is my humble (amature approach – second grow) with soil testing on the immediate horizon.

    4. WOW and another WOW and actually,,,a holy s%[email protected] should be in here also lol.I will never again order seeds from anywhere except from ILG..The difference in quality, genetics,smell, look, all of it…potency vigor . Robert has the best and I have ordered from quite a few places.Glad that is over with now, i found my forever spot.Thanks so much I love growing!!!

    5. Hi Robert
      Just cant seem to download plant care guide, even though I downloaded marijuana grow bible, which was brilliant by the way.
      Thank you, will buy seeds very soon.

    6. I was wondering if a dehydrator would an acceptable way of drying a few buds for a few buds. The temperature shouldn’t rise above 150°F.

    7. Robert, all i have to say is that your seeds are one of a kind, Ive never had 100% germ rate with the 3 other seed banks i deal with, usually 8-9/10 at best, yours are top notch! in less than 24 hours i have 100% germination and placed in my medium. now well into veg and these plants are strong! you have a life customer here. Thank you for your hard work. “Happy Growing”

    8. I appreciate all of your information and the wonderful service of seed delivery. I sent for the grow bible it never came in the email the plant care did though thank you for all your help.

    9. Got my seeds! Germinated blueberry and wire widow ,% 100 came up , OG was a complete bust! Only one came up and died shortly after! Why?

    10. I was able to download the grow bible but I wasn’t able to download the Marijuana grow guide. Will you please email me the grow guide. Thanks, I love all the info I get for you guys. I’m gonna buy some seeds soon. Peace, Rico
