    ✨ Best temperature & humidity for drying and curing? ✨

    When drying your buds and curing them, what's the best temperature and humidity?♨️💧 I've read that you want to keep it cool (60-70 F) to keep all the smells, but I've also heard to keep it warmer (70-75 F) to prevent mold. Do you just do your best? 💥 As far as humidity it seems like people agree you want it about 50%, but what's the best way to make it higher or lower? Does the temperature matter after you already jarred the buds? 🌱🌿

      Yep. Took me years to understand why it’s better than 50 or 55 but I keep my drying room at 60% rh

      I have storage room in my basement which gets in the 50s in winter. Is where I dry, cure and store my weed in mason jars. The RH usually is in the 20-40% pretty much year round. Like I said before. I kept it up to 2 years. No change in quality.

        If you have to take down your crop a little sooner than you'd like, should you do anything different during the drying / curing to maximize the potency smell that you do have?

          No, I don't think I would.

        If you jarred the bud, I would recommend getting some humidity packs (I get the 62) and put it in a jar. These will help maintain humidity within the jar.

          I like the 62 paks for stabilizing temperature when curing and burping. But I’ll use the 58 paks for months of storage.

            Never used the packs but that sounds just perfect. Hard to stop curing, people don’t really talk about it. Better to have a two-three weeks intense curing and then bring down to smokable levels of rh and keep there for long time

          70-75 degrees is a good temp range. 60-66% humidity with good airflow inside the drying room. You want mild circulation around your buds no stagnant air. Dry until the pop corn buds snap off with ease. Then jar them with hydrometer in each jar. The humidity should creep back up some, but if it goes past 70 you need to remove them and Dry a little more. Burp your jars for 1 hour the 1st week 45 the next then 15-30 week 3. If humidity inside is 62-64. Leave the jars shut to let them cure
