Please help,

I'm just wondering why my cannabis always smells and looks super dank and hard on the plant but as soon as I chop it down and have to dry two days later it's smelling like grass and always gets fluffy instead of staying dense. I hang dry for like 5 days then put in jars and burp them depending on the humidity. The smell gets a little better but usually still has that grass smell butt the thing that bothers me most is how fluffy the buds get any advice is welcome. Thanks

Temperature and humidity of your drying area are critical.

65F and 55% RH is what I shoot for. Nothing but dank...

Dam gonna need like a fridge or something to dry in, think the drying is harder than the growing.

Half of it is genetics. Some strains you can quick dry in 3 days and they are good to go.

Yeah the problem I'm having is drying I think as I don't have a proper drying room, think my stuff gets dry to fast.

Reason is your not drying it long enough before you jar it, you should let it hang for at least 7-10 days at the earliest before you put it in the jars.

Obviously there is other factors such as temp and humidity, but i cant imagine that your buds are dry enough after only 5 days.

That's really not carved in stone. When it's too warm and dry and the bud is already dry enough after 5 days and you let it hang longer you make further curing impossible. Additionally it also depends on harvest timing, nutrition, watering during the grow etc. There's so many ways you can fuck it up. The grower needs to develop a feel for every plant and this can only come with experience.
