From here you can adjust your technique and cure to your own tastes its easy once you are hooked, you will get steered in the right direction by the plants themselves.
Of course! Forgot about it, was so in the trip and needed to thank you at that precise moment hahaha.
This is the best image I could obtain for now (took me a few shots first was the flash shadow and then camera run of battery, later I will try with daylight)
My approach was:
1 - Taking the best cola on all my plants
2 - Hanging it to dry "till barely smokable" (its a touch/test thing for me)
3 - Cobbed the entire flower (with brach and leaves).
(I don't have a vacuum sealer, so had to improvise/adapt)
4 -Packed the Cob quite tight with food wrap, rolled both ends and tie them to seal it the best possible.
5 - Put the Cob on a home made "quick dryer" device of mine (it maintains constant indirect air flow with a temperature who fluctuates between 50C~60C) for two weeks. It perspired
6 - Opened, checked for mold, bad odors (nothing) and put it to dry for a couple of days (my usual normal dryer, cardboard box).
7 - Put it alone on a glass jar and took it to a dark place for exactly 3 months.
English is not my mother language (as some of you maybe noticed hahaha) So maybe I have no fluent enough to describe the amazing cob experience, but "joy" and "focus" sums it pretty well, at a little higher dose, things started to get slightly visual (kinda small "vibration"(?) on edge of things and a feeling of "tunnel focus" on contemplation of things)
Also, Tanwena, I understand what you say with the hearth my brother, the plant was my best guide in many ways on my life. Its a random bag seed that was so good that I started to clone and from that clone another clone, and so on (for 32 "generations") that I have been cultivating for many years.
It's kinda kush-hybrid with a pinch of sativa, o that is was always think, for aspect, flavor and the harvest window goes from 60~63 days (cloudy trichs) pretty cerebral highs to 75 days to help to sleep and pain relieve.
Currently Im planning cobbing an entire plant for my next harvest, half at 60 days and half at 75 days, to test, but definitely keep always some extra for my that times of my meditation, nature contact or inner searches.
Again, thanks for sharing brother!
