Does make a difference ... in taste

Back in the day, outdoors, it wasn't a problem to build a fire, boil a wash-tub of water, and dip each stalk roots-first. Then the whole plant could be hung in a barn or shed to dry/cure. The shock to the plant caused the stomata to slam shut, which slowed down the dry/cure and eliminated much of the "green" taste. Most of it was all leaf anyway ... since Jamaican & Columbian seeds wouldn't ripen quickly in the US. It wasn't great, but it did the trick. The only way to get bud outdoors was to use Mexican seeds. Hanging whole plants, with the leaf folding around the bud, also slowed down the cure, and made it taste better.

I don't buy any of the "@harvest" tips for increasing potency, flavor, or anything.

I think when a plant is ready for harvest, it shouldn't have much room for improvement unless you effed up along the way.

When I was a kid, I was told by someone that when you grow weed-you need to sit the plants roots in hot water and hang the plant upside down "To make the resin run into the plant"

actually Ive found that that the buds taste better when you remove as much leaf matter as possible and control the speed of drying environmentally... then followed by a long jar cure.

I think that the buds will to some degree absorb the odors of the drying leaf matter, which tends to smell of grass or hay, and have noticed the difference between buds that were trimmed immediately and those that weren't, those that weren't were much more harsh.

the best smelling and tasting stuff comes from fresh bud delicately trimmed, slowly dried and placed in glass jars for a long cure... if at anytime the drying bud shares a closed space with some other odors the finished product will be compromised

Its always easier to give advice than to take it.

I think your over reaction to a simple question is a lot funnier than the OP's original question.

Calm down bro.
