Drying and Curing Cannabis: The Art of Enhancing Effect and Flavor

By my friend, the late and great strain hunter Franco Loja.

“Cannabis is my passion, my bread, my home. I feel it is my duty to make sure this amazing plant is preserved and enjoyed. I am a smoker, a grower, a breeder, and a strain hunter. For life.”

— Franco, the Strain Hunter

Every cannabis gardener begins a new crop hoping to nurture healthy plants that deliver fat, tasty buds. Every crop involves months of hard work, from selecting varieties to vegetative growth, flowering, ripening, and harvesting.

After all the effort, commitment, and waiting, the final stage arrives.

It’s too late to correct mistakes made during flowering, but it is never too late to improve the flavor and the high of your buds by implementing a controlled drying and curing process.
