Finally found a great way to cure without funny smells of aromas changing all the time.
When most branches snap, but some of the bigger ones still bend I remove the buds from the branches. Then I let them sit overnight in a closed closet in an open jar.
As soon as I notice the outside getting a bit crispy and the bud is crumbly but still sticky, I put them in a glass jar and keep it closed, no burping. Stems snap at this point, some can still be a lil bendy and snap at 45 degrees.
After a month I just get the fresh, dank original smell of the bud with a great smooth taste in a joint AND in a vaporizer.
I am now experimenting with small jar to see for how long smells stay fresh and how it improves (or deteriorates) over time.
This works for me!!! Burping just doens't work for me, I don't like it how weed changes with burps. Even tried Simon's method, but it was not what I was looking for.
Btw As soon as I open a jar I put all the buds in mylar bags and seal so they stay that way. If I open a jar a few times the quality is fucked for me.
This method gives you more of a commercial type smell and texture (bit on dried side but still sticky). But it stays FRESH
That being said, Simon's method does make for some interesting smell development so I was thinking of trying to cure a jar at 64% RH for 2-3 months and as soon as it smells amazing I will try to bring humidity down by using the method described above.
And so we keep on experimenting and testing
