[quote=Tangwena;8912486]Yes my friend and it works well also.
The sweating just excelerates the process and deepens the cure and effects.
The unsweated sealed long term vacuum packed buds dont change as much depending on how dry or moist they were when they were sealed up.
I suspect the bamboo cure would be the same results depending on the moisture content of the buds when sealed up.[/QUOTE

That is very good to know...


I saw another witeup by the author of the link I posted earlier with a few extra tidbits. ..

"Take a bamboo stem(cylinder) and make one end open and leave other end closed. Now fill that bamboo cylinder with your prepared marijuana tightly (compactly), full the cylinder. Then close the open end of the cylinder(air-tight) and leave it for some months(2+). And I think this is the part of the curing process."

"I don't know the whole scientific reason but this exists as tradition. I was also curious as you so I tried this myself a few times, with dry bamboo stem and with a green fresh bamboo stem. And concluded that putting inside fresh stem ensures better quality and flavor than the dry stem. Then I again concluded that it is the moisture absorbent property of bamboo that does the most of the work and off-course that fresh bamboo smell adds some flavor."

Carnalrekt you are right in your assumptions the green bamboo would enable a slow drying and curing process and impart a distinct flavor.
I can think of several sativa strains that would shine with this sought of cure very nice knowledge thanks so much for sharing it.

Just as there are hundreds of different varieties of cheese, who knows, maybe in 50 or 100 years time, we will see hundreds of areas from all around the world producing distinctly different cobs.

Mulanje contrasting cure and effect

Here are some pics of Mulanje cobs made from the same plant harvested at the same time.
Both aged for the same amount of time just cured differently.


The first is a Honey/floral smell and the effects are fast and trippy hard to handle in their intensity.


The second pics are also very trippy narcotic and overpowering but no sleepy feelings more a passing out into a trippy dream world effect. Totally out of your mind tripped out on the floor at least for me ha ha.

The smell is peppery and fermented fruit. The white spots are resin in the light the whole cob sparkles like it is dusted with diamond dust crazy in the right light.

Looking nice Tangwena!

I know this isn't most peoples cup of tea, .... but has any one done much experimentation with cobbing cbd flower with <1% Thc or any of the high CBD low thc strains?


Another thing I was wondering is has anyone had success with sealing a ziplock under water to push out the air as an cheap alternative to a vaccum sealer like:

https://youtu.be/XrZPLF0ezw8?t=32like

I would imagine if the surface of the cob is super smooth you should be able to get away with it,....

like if you cobbed it like normal the overnight ferment, and then turned it into a canary minus the parchment on the second long ferment to minimize the possibility of trapped air...

If no one has yet, I will do a trial in a couple of weeks. My vacuum sealers broken and I don't think i can buy one anytime soon.

there are more vids...

And take my advice,
deeper water and one or two straws in the plastic bag pointing from bottom to the opening @top,
that works, air channel wise.

Or go another way chepo, will report when stuff arrives.

PEACE

Has much experimentation been done with using this technique with alternative herbs? The average dry herb that people sometimes use in their smoking mixes tends to be dry and a pretty average smoke..at least that has been my experience with stuff like mullein and damiana. I'm sure some pretty decent smoking material could be obtained by cobbing it.

I remember a thread from the shroomery where someone had figured out a way to make a very pleasant and active smoking mix out of passionflower leaf by drying and then jar curing over a few weeks.

I hung a couple of passionflower vines to dry a couple of days ago and just finished rolling up a small cob. Ill post on the results soon
