    Just remember at 55% it’s all over... no curing will happen if you dip below 55% RH that will stop the curing process.. I like to keep buds at 62% and smoke them at 55% rh

      I would also strongly suggest that y’all get solid meters... learn how to keep them calabrated and keep them up. The use of chemical R/H stabalisers shouldn’t be used because you don’t need to use meters anymore... Knowledge is Power... your buds and friends will Appreciate your efforts.... not saying you can’t use them. But experance with both now and I can say the use of real good meters is my preferred way to cure and store.. it just gets better and better when you know how to finish your buds off...

        So true. Curing is trickier than growing in my opinion. This thread is how I learned to jar cure. I'm going to be checking out some of the other curing methods suggested by THC123 as well.

          I apply this same method with 5 gallon buckets with Gama Seal Lids, two pounds at time... Jars just don’t hold enough to be effective for me... the buckets are food grade... it’s not just for jarring small amounts... and works the same... that’s why I’m so insistently saying to use the meters all the time... the packs just won’t cut it with two pounds or more...

              Hei superbad,



              this happened to me sometimes in the past.
              I'm pretty sure it has to do with the ambient RH being HIGHER than the one in the jar. This way, opening the jar makes things worse instead of letting the buds sweat.


              Anyways, i'm into freezer curing and storing lately. As an hobby grower, my priority is minimizing the risks!

                Didn't read all 263 pages, but enough to see a pattern of negativity toward Boveda I feel is misplaced. This product is to curing cannabis what timers are to indoor growing. It should have been invented by Ron Popeil for it truly is the "Set it and Forget it" of curing. If you're not using them it's either because you're cheap, uneducated, or have stake in the competition... Which by this thread is apparently tedious, manual labor.

                    In drier environments I’ve found the Gamna lid seals need to be caulked to the bucket in order to slow down moisture loss. And even when caulked are not as “sealed “ as other methods.

                    This is in an environment where humidity is 20% on average and the buckets were kept about fifty degrees

                      If you want to dry until 65% then drop a boveda pack in the jar and call that cured, I’m sure many will agree with you.

                      As I have not tried it, I couldn’t possibly comment.

                        I've always been able to just wing it and jar cure my weed. But when I first started I let some mold on accident. But after a few years of learning I've got it down. I'm a bit older but I'm really considering trying one of these things.....it's always good to expand on your ways if someone shared the knowledge that's so helpful. What exactly are those things called again??? I'm gonna look on Amazon.....sorry I didn't read all pages either lol.

                          We use 62%, ideal for cannabis. Did side by side with "the old fashioned way". Boveda wins hands down. It also lasts a long, long time.

                            I like the 62% bovedas too. I only put them in when the RH in the jar holds +-60% for 24 hrs without a boveda.

                              Your first post on a thread that's over 250 pages, and you come on here acting like, 'you all are stupid, my way's the best way.'

                              So good luck with that.

                              I personally think Bovedas suck, but that's beside the point.

                                What does the number of pages have to do with anything? Boveda isn't "my way". I didn't invent them. I never said anything like "you all are stupid" but I did read a lot of ignorant, unfounded statements about Boveda that I felt deserved retort. Tell me Jellyfish, why do you think Boveda sucks? Is it the convenience? Perhaps you sell hygrometers. No? Hmm. Well, you go right on burping jars, Chief. But 'round here, in the immoral words of Sweet Brown, "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That".
