I smoked it last night, going to eat it today. (Couldn't help smoking all of it, about 4 grams, leaving .5 for chewing)

Sadly the buds I used are lacking in potency, I knew that once I tested the jar cured buds, but the cob has been already made. Straight buds are good smoke taste wise but lacking potency for me at least and obviously what you put in is what comes out...

Smoke
Smoke-wise is a different league, what a experience! While "dismantling" it for grinding the scent reminded me of top quality natural fermented tobbacco leaves (I was raised in the Canary Islands and fell in love with cigars since I was young).

I refer to the ones used for hand-rolling premium cigars (Cohiba, Montecristo, etc i.e. best of the best, creme de la creme).

The result made me think of a cannabis "cigar-yfication": original "slightly fermented citrus" aroma was kept, but was super-charged and became an "overtone"; body became thicker and deeper, like light cedary wood rounded with leathery and peppery spices. Delicious!

Even being slightly moist and plyable after being drying for 8 hours at least, it smoked absolutely slooow, uniformly and smoooth, with the whitest ash. Made me think on rolling them like cigars, i.e. 5-6grams rolled using also cob (second link) or cannabis for the outer skin, I would have one stapled to my mouth all day

Loving this curing method! For me, a truly Gourmet finish for the proper buds!

Notes:
I should note that my cobbing ended up being more "pressed slab" style than a malawi cob (rolled); due to the really powerful vacuum machine I used, vacuum acted like a press and the cob was pressed flat since the sweat stage, like a hash slab.

I suspect this could impart a different character/effects to the curing, as we are preventing air pockets inside the cob vs cob rolling. Thinking it's similar to how tobbacco is fermented, leaves are placed flat on top of each other making piles, looking to prevent air pockets, so could be the key for cigar-like curing.

After drying (eight hours), the chunk I cut looked like a hashified bud, but was still plyable, leather-like.

Chewed it for about 10 minutes, keeping it for sublingual absorption. Just poured a coffee on it (having it now) , had some scrambled eggs from my beloved hens first. 0.6g chunk.

Knowing original bud is lacking in potency for me, I wonder if sublingual/digested will make a difference...

Taste was like the smell, slightly bitter but absolutely bearable.

Tangwena! I had a really good master!

Smoked Effects
Effect-wise was the same as the jarred buds... lacked potency. Smoke-wise, night and day difference, it was really enjoyable, much more than regular buds; for those who like cigars, the difference is the same as smoking a cigarette vs a premium cigar... organoleptic experience!


Chewed
Chewed was different, I didn't feel any kind of high, just felt a noticeable above-average wellbeing and good mood... suddenly I felt the need of trimming, pruning and shaping the trees in my orchard, got soooo carried away and absolutely inmersed on the duty to the extent of totally missing the China F1 GP I was about to watch! around 4 hours non-stop...

Nice. Sounds like it would make awesome edibles!

Definitely! I also remember Tangwena stating the extracted oil is of superb quality (makes sense), will be great to make edibles, or even to dose it sublingualy.

In keeping with the old saying that an idle mind is the devil's workshop, I decided share my brazen bootleg puck press, which I described on page 271 of this thread. I must repeat here that I have NO intention of attempting to market this diabolical machine, and that I created this device as a one-off cob maker for myself alone, meaning it will remain in my lair for the rest of all time, for use when cob season rolls around.

Despite having a fairly good idea of how this compression works, I was still amazed at the result, which is a very solid puck that looks, and feels like a piece of sawed-off tree limb.

Since this machine will never be sold, I decided to name it in honor of the CobFather, whose innovative idea has brought smiles to so many faces across the globe.

With this rock solid puck vacuum sealed, I will age it for a month or so, and then report back with my findings on flavor and potency, as compared to my more loosely compacted cobs that turned out absolutely fantastic.
