        Your 10 oz. aren't ruined..

        Granted, it is pretty dry...It will grind easy and come out of your grinder easily...
        The joints you roll will tend to spill a little out the ends as you roll...

        But 52% is not ruined... It will still burn pretty well without being too harsh..

        Of course, it will not cure anymore, and you need to be sure it does not dry out anymore or you will end end up with a lot of powdery dust shake...
        ...

          it was a ways back
          but there was some discussion about where the magic number was for the bottom
          a few of us had some good results below 55%
          i normally do keep it in the 60%+ range
          but the lower 50s seem to have some promise
          55 is a very round number, most physical processes don't fall cleanly on such neat numbers
          and i would suspect not all buds are the same

            Definitely not but numbers on a screen can always trump reality if you aren't willing to observe it. The modern rendition of the human mind has collectively made his choice to do things by the book rather than by reality.

            That's why I hate numbers. They have replaced reality. Soon drag races will take place on the dyno.. Hopefully I'll be on Mars with Elon by then.
            For the last time, I'm pretty sure what's killing the crops is this Brawndo stuff.

              I found this comment to be very cute. Nothing personal, it just reminds me of a conversation I had with my father when I was about 8 or 9.

              Me: I want to be the first person to build a warp drive.
              Pop: That would be pretty neat. Why a warp drive?
              Me: So I can get as far away from this planet as I possibly can!
              Pop: I can see how that would be a good goal, but I see a flaw.
              Me: What's that?
              Pop: When you get there, you will still be there.

              Leave it to pop to bust my fantasy with a perfect chunk of reality. Smart guy. Glad I got to hang around with him for so long.

                That was quick. Got my 49% Boveda packs in mail today.

                Gonna try to use these to drop moisture down after the cure. I like it a little drier than 65%.

                I let you know how it goes

                    For sure... Not much you can do now... IMHO... Bud at 55 -58% RH is prime bud to smoke... But the cure stops at 55% so Basicly the taste won't mellow and the flavors and smells have done all they will do..... 52 will smoke fine... May burn a little faster and your right past 52% its Shake City hope your ready for the next Dry and Cure.. I know it sucks to blow a RH mark seriously.... This kind of thing happens when you grow...

                      Going to try them out to lower moisture AFTER the cure. 65% is too wet for me. I'll let you know how it goes.
                      That's a good number for long term storage.. I would burp in a dryer RH Room like 45% RH for a few days to lower slowly and controlled... The packs are great at maintaining set points... The ones on the packs like 49% .... They don't move moisture out of materal as easily as they add moisture... So leave the packs sealed and drop the RH close to 49 say 50 to 55 then use them... Also for long term storage use a Mylar Bag with an oxygen absorber along with that pack... See what happens...

                        So if if above 60% RH still needs to be burped. Below 58% is smokeable and below 55% is beyond cure, my hypothesis is that the prime RH to hold a sustained cure without burping would theoretically be above 58% but lower than 60% for optimal results.

                        Thoughts?

                          Remember guys it depends on your goals and not only one end game... At 55 the cure has done what it will for the most part... I keep and store bud at 62% RH if its going to be used or moved soon... For smoking I will let it sit out on a table till it's crispy then jar it up... Those buds level out at about 56% th in that jar and smoke fucking perfect... But the longer you keep it mold free and safely above 55% RH it will cure ripen and mellow to a point... Then it will start breaking down... If you want to smoke your buds later like a year down the road... Hold them in a curing stage until you think they are perfect then store them as I mentioned above and thank me later... Its been my observation that a range is better to shoot rather than a hard number... for my curing range is 59-62 anything over 62 mold is problematic...
                          Smoking range is 54-56 above 56% and a my buds forget about it... The joint or cone won't smoke just gum up...
                          Long term I like 54% and an oxygen absorber... My year old flower stored in 7 mill Mylar bags is way way better than what is available to these clowns on the street... Also I don't freeze it... I store bud in a lockable industrial drink cooler like gas stations have... I have a link to the bags if anyone needs them

                              The limits on time bud can be stored depend on the strains... Some start to degrade faster than others.. So make the bags big enough to open and reseal if you catch it degrading smoke it or blast it... Then keep on smoking better than everyone else

                                Lmao and BTW... I do all of this with attention to detail... Visit your stored bud every 3 months in a climate controlled room then reseal it... I'm not a fan of packs.... But I do keep them on hand just in case
