Somebody told you wrong..
There were a couple of points I thought could use some better explanation...
The darkening of trichomes is
degrading THC, but its' conversion into another cannabinoid lengthens the effect. It also gives you more of a stoned affect, which is why many growers on here wait until 20-50% of trichomes are amber on indica varieties.
I think curing takes longer... Cannabis books recommend 2-3 weeks drying time and then 2-3 weeks cure. If you only dry for 1 week you should add to your cure time. I always smoke my bud while its curing, but I don't feel like it has the right taste and smell until 3-4 weeks after a 1 week dry.
Bud otherwise I thought it was a great post.. keep up the good work! K+
