Methods and Effects of Curing Cannabis

Long before discovering improved cannabis processing mechanisms, ancient consumers of cannabis were most likely not familiar with the current techniques, but the drive to find better, healthier ways evolved cannabis processing chains from the original, now passé methods to modified, novel means.

Initially, cannabis, as a commodity, was available in a wide variety of colors from Acapulco Gold, brown Colombian, and redder-than-red Thai stick to the bright green Oaxaca big bud. The wide range of colors resulted from drying the plant under the sun in the archaic alternative to curing, which led to the activation of photolytic reactions in the plant.
