Thai Stick/Cannagar Leaf prep

Hi all, so i'm seeing all these lovely looking Cannagars online but folk seem to be very secretive with their leaf preperation techniques. So i was hoping to get a little discussion going in here describing the different methods being used. So far i've heard people washing leaves with a quick iso/water mixture. Using leaves straight from the plant and letting them 'cure. Or 'curing' the leaves before use and others. Which method are you using? What do you find gets rid of any nasty taste that might come from the leaf the best? Thanks for any help

Water cure the leaves and dry flattened lightly. Read cigar forums. Loads of information there. Like flattening ridges.

thai stick is ridiculously easy to make



traditonally they used wispy buds wet at harvest time and mold them around a stem (liek a reverse joint) and tie them with a twine made from same plant (pulling strips from stem)



I had promised a long time ago to make some and do a tutorial and keep on forgetting to do it when time is most appropriate



next harvest will be a good opportunity to try it again if I remember to do it I will wrap a few and take some snaps

You can look it up here but it's basically just soaking them in water until it runs clear, refreshing the water daily.

i tried making thai sticks once with bamboo skewers that you can remove and it leaves air holes to smoke the cigar. it turned into a gooey mess but i have all the supplies currently...

i have this plant that has three finger wide blades on the leaves. i'm guessing thick blades would work better over thinner leaf varieties? thanks for sharing mikell

My first attempt went pretty well. But i just used leaves that had not undergone any process and left the cannagar to cure for a couple of weeks. I was surprised how little you could actually taste the chlorophyll from the leaves but it was still noticeable. I'd like to remove it next time like i see these guys doing on insta for a better flavour.

Check Leira on IG. If you go back to his early posts he inadvertently drops a few hints. To get that smooth cuban style skin I believe he is removing leaf ridges and sort of polishing the cannagar with a block.

Weird, do you mind doing your tutorial.

I have ordered cannagar mold. My main question is like the the OP. How to manage the leaves.

Roll with fresh leaves then cure the whole cannagar? In my mind I would think that the leaves would tighten up as they dried.

There's lots of different styles. Some only use kief wrapped in rosin wrapped in leaf.
Some use flower for the bulk of the body, some use a mix.
Most use a small "sheet" of concentrate and wrap the body.

I read about some folks take wax or rosin and add a few drops of alcohol to make thin enough to brush on as a glue. Then the ethanol evaps off as cannagar dries.

I think I will do that style, I don't need massive amounts of wax in the cigar, just enough to hold it together. It won't burn as long as slow, but I would think it would be a more enjoyable smoke.

Has anybody experimented in the past year since thread was started?
