The main variable in cob making is the amount you dry the buds.
They will sweat even if there is only a little moisture left it just effects the end result consistency.
The drier the buds going in the less changes occur during the fermentation process.
So wetter buds tend to result in a darker hash like result where the drier buds result in cobs that look more like the buds that went in.
You can see from the pics the darker cobs were wetter buds going in the lighter more colorful drier buds going in.
The highs are different as well the lighter cobs are more energetic and the darker more narcotic and everything in between even from cobs made from the same plant.
i always try to make at least two different style cobs to see which high i prefer.
