Pure Bliss Panama x Honduras fermented buds

I'm in heaven and its getting better by the minute.
6 weeks old P x H canary style buds.
The smell and taste are outstanding and the fact that the high is out of this world makes this the perfect plant to cure this way.
The fermented smell is mind blowing and everything else taste and effect just add to make this an outstanding combination my small clone will produce a candy bar of fermented perfection in a couple of months life cant get any better.

There are some chemical reactions happening in the fermentation process that no one quite understands yet. These dont seem to occur properly in buds that have been dried then rehydrated.
I've also tried cobbing with re-hydrated bud that had been dried enough to smoke in a joint (but needs re-lighting several times) and all I got was compacted bud ....and also tried with bud that was beginning to bottle cure and that was the same result..little or no difference in the high compared to standard cured bud. As Tangwena said, fermentation doesn't happen unless the bud is "semi-alive" and still retains some moisture and is pliable. If the bud is even a day or two before bottle curing, it's probably too late for fermentation and the positive changes that occur with cobbing won't happen.

The more I cob, the less time I spend air drying the bud beforehand. I only dry (in the humid, slow drying conditions here) for 3 or 4 days, (one week max) then roll them into cobs, the leaves are droopy but still pliable and definitely not crispy.

Around here for most months of the year t takes a minimum of 3 or more weeks to dry bud enough to be ready for bottle curing or to smoke in a joint without going out several times..and even after 20 days, it's not really dry unless a dehumidifier is used. The other advantage to cobbing is that I don't have lots of branches hanging around for weeks. waiting to dry!

I agree although some have reported a good result I have never experienced it myself and stick with an almost fresh bud just 1 or 2 days dry in my very dry desert type environment.
I have very low humidity and 4 days would produce crispy green hay.

Panama x Honduras resin color

This is a close up of the resin on the cured canary buds this strain seems to shine the most when this caramel color is achieved.

So beautiful, Tangwena!

Lets keep cobs raining in this thread:
- My latest 2 cobs out of zamaldelica that flowered little over 100 days.
I'm pleased with the results so far. Definitely will keep the bigger one for special occasions - like a wedding !

I personally leave all the sugar leaves on but you dont have to it works just the same on manicured bud.
Just remember you get out what you put in. Great buds make great cobs and visa versa.
