^^ now that's Malawi gold!

it's the cure based on compressed anaerobic conditions coupled with just enough but not too much moisture. this is my take. maybe the corn husk has inherent micro organisms essential to the process? me thinks not.


the compression leads to sweating. the sweating needs compression and damp buds at room temp or higher for a while; duration).I know from picking outdoor buds and cramming them into a bag for transport that by the time I get them back to the house if I have a large bag crammed ( lightly ompressed) bud the bud is hot by the time I get it out of the bag at the house. this hot bud always turns darker during drying; not curing, drying.

I'm wanting tangwena to answer the following question:

do you think the same effects can be achieved by eliminating the cob and just compressing slightly damp bud ( very compressed, slightly damp; stems still limber, bud not crunchy) in a seal a meal vacuum bag, remove all the air ( anaerobic, no oxygen, no air period) with the vacu seal method and then store in a dark paper bag for same length of time as the cob cure with corn husk?

I have done something similar. I harvested some buds, tightly rolled about an ounce or two into some paper bag and tied it so it would not unroll. I stuck it in the hot attic of my garage and left it there for a week or two. When I opened it up, it was perfectly dry and cured. The taste was phenomenal. It turned out that each plant that went into the bag cured to a different color.

The only difference of my curing method was that the bud was wetter going in, and the moisture could go through the paper. I would say that the compression of the buds reduced the ability of oxygen to enter.

Hi idiit I am no scientist but what you said sounds on the money, I also cure the uncobbed bud by sweating, slightly compressed in a vacuum sealed bag. It does not change color as much for some reason, but tastes good and is stronger than just dried.
The cobs however if you get it right, change the taste, smell and effect of the buds noticeably.
My Ace Malawi buds when smoked had a strong narcotic effect but I could handle it, the cob when smoked initialy gave a very clear high followed by a need to lie down that so bad that it bordered on calapse. I then had about 20 mins of tripping with my eyes closed like paralised.
I could not tell if I was awake or asleep very vivid halucinations in which I was present and directing the actions I took. Eventualy I awoke from this dream state and everything was changed visualy distorted and my voice was in slow motion as were my actions, this lasted 4 or 5 hours.
The Zamaldelica cob just come on instantly and are so trippy initialy that you have to grit your teeth, however they also overpower you for 10 to 15 minutes where I lay on the floor with crazy visions flashing through my mind. But then I snap to and everything appears crazy and fast like acid I have taken. I can never remember anything I do after I come down its exhausting.
The buds from the same plant sweat cured have a similar effect but without the need to lay down and the trip is very clear and comparatively mild.
As space junkOG mentioned in his write up its this knock out part of the high that is only from the cobbed gear, its as if the rush is overwhelming and once the peak has passed you then get into the high which is strong and very long lasting depending on the type of buds you are using.
One comment he made is typical of the reactions I get from seasoned smokers when I give them some good cob, they cant believe its grass and most who grow their own make cobs from that day forward.
As I said I am no scientist I only know the cobs I had in Malawi varied a lot in power but when you got a good one it was the best drug in the world. I never had highs from dry buds even close, strong yes but not the same.

Here is a pic of some Zamaldelica compressed vacuum sealed and sweat cured buds and a cob of the same buds. The buds are IMO mild compared to the cob which is overwhelming in its effect.

^ great post. thanks. i'm going to do some cob cures in vacu seal i'll post pics and reports.



the anaerobic condition eliminates the mold issue if i'm understanding this correctly. it also regulates the type of micro herd cure by eliminating aerobic bacteria.

anaerobic bacteria sweat cure. maybe the corn husks add a micro organism that's not on cannabis?

^^ very similar to my 2011 golden tiger smoke report after a 6 month aerobic cure.

Hi TBliss I very much enjoy your posts on the search for trip weed, it sounds like you got a partial cure like in the Thai sticks I used to get in London, the curing is an art when you get it right its really rewarding.
But its whatever floats your boat in the end. I grew up experiencing very strong trippy weed in Africa and until I started cobbing my best buds, could not ever find anything close.
I enjoy the western jar cured method but find it mild in comparison.
We all just wanna get high in the end.
Regards Tangwena

Tangwena,

thank for posting this info. i have some that may be too dry but i think ill give this a try.

all my bud has been trimmed from the stems already so not sure if this will be good or bad but i will try this with a few diff. strains in a single cob...Ultra Sonya, Pre98 Bubba, WiFi Alien and Grape Stomper OG will make up the cob.


peace

tangwena. Have you ever tried to make cobs from trim material? if it works, it may make for some great butter or extract. Maybe the heat from the sweating cob would decarb the trim material instead of having to put it in the oven?
