yes just a pice of bread. the dry buds draw the moisture from the bread. i have done this many times. it really works

it also works with the bud you buy that has obviously been allowed to over dry.

Try to use wheat bread or unbleached breads. Why the hell do they bleach bread for!

Anyways, yea yea I eat sandwiches too, but I don't want to smoke it. Probably messes up the lungs. Not that it matters anyways with all the pollution and what not. We'll all probably die as mutated hermies.

It works!!!!!! I did it with some crappy dried out bc bud. It was 2.2 grams and i used 3 slices of bread and a sandwich tupperware container. I put in one slice of bread on the bottom, a hollowed out piece in the middle and the 3 little bc buds in the hollowed out piece of bread. Than I put a slightly moistened piece on top and sealed it. I came back 6 hours later and opened the lid. I removed the top piece of bread and let the buds sit for an hour to give them a chance to dry out. They now weigh 2.63g. (they weighed 2.19g. 7 hours ago) They taste way better and are not dry at all. When I started they were soo dry they would crumble!!

so i got 25g of dry bud that i figured id try this out with.. i put it all in a ziplock bag ... wet a peace of bread a lil bit and stuck it in the ziplock with tha bud... ima let it sit overnight and check it out 2marow.. hope it works

Bleek187
03-28-2007, 05:28 PM
it added .2g ... lame.. ima try agin tonight a lil dif

03-28-2007, 06:12 PM
it added .2g ... lame.. ima try agin tonight a lil dif

Nobody said to use a ziploc bag and the slightly moist piece of bread has to be OVER the buds in a container. go back and follow the directions.

i heard about the orange peels... question... does that add any flavor to the bud? cuz somebody told me that it did..

DeadlyEight
04-21-2007, 11:32 AM
definitly best to do it with some fruit, apple peal, orange peal, =) mmmm give the bud a nice little flavour of the fruit

heheh my faveorite was using sweet tooth and grapefruit peal =P

Rocker420
05-06-2007, 09:38 PM
I haven actually seen people cure pot with fruit, the same way your doing with bread, to add flavor to the herb and it does infact work. I like the bread idea, more weight is good.

you can use half cotten balls it will work with anything wet in wit the bud when i get bud that is to dry i take about a quarter of a cotton ball break it up wet it roll it in to balls add it 2 the bud for a day and put it in the frig when i take it out it has ALOT mroe weight and feels stickier.... that dosnt mean its more potent but when your bud is to dry that sthe way to go

Kmpra
05-15-2007, 04:19 PM
I personally use any citrus peel. And if left in long enough it will give a nice tang, lemon works well. But you can get it rehydrated without getting a flavor youll taste. But you will definetly smell the citrus when you open your container.

PuffTheMagicDragon
05-15-2007, 06:33 PM
dude then it just destroys the natural smell of the bud i hate it when i get bud that smells like oranges....but thats jsut me when i grow bud i like to know what i grew tastes like if i wanted oranges id drink some orange juice along with the blunt that i was smoking that i grew

yogi dc
05-16-2007, 12:02 AM
I too like the smell of true bud and not anything else.

Kmpra
05-20-2007, 12:07 AM
Not knocking the natural aromatics of the bud, but when its smoked, the citrus doesnt come into play. But it all boils down to what some famous dude once said "To each his own" :)

Draston
05-23-2007, 09:37 AM
yeah citrus or not I love bud. My roommates complain about the smell coming from my closet (more scared of getting caught than smell) but I actually like the smell of cannibis plants growing... If I could get inscents of this crap I would gladly do it in a second.

it works but your bud then smells like bread. All that happens is the moisture moves from the bread to the bud and it takes the smell with it. Orange peels work better and smell nicer when you smoke it.. not like stale bread .. yuk!

06-16-2007, 02:04 AM
why u want to add weight?? does it smoke better or so u can make more $$ if u sell it or something??

Yeah, sad to say mike, there are the types of lowlifes that pump up the weight of bud and then sell it to some poor trusting person.

We don't allow any talk of sales here, so I *know* that's not what is being talked about here.

This group is for honest people to learn to grow their own stash.

:yeahthat: growing your own is so we don`t have to go and buy it on the street, who knows what they`re using to grow chemically, and we ingest this stuff and don`t know what`s going into your lungs.
better to grow your own and then you have all the control of what goes in.:)
why would you want to add weight man? makes no sense and brings down the ppl who want some good quality bud, and not soggy crud. just "IMO"

06-30-2007, 04:34 AM
a lot of people have said it haha. I wouldn't care about adding weight. if i want weight i'll go get some metal fishing weights and put it in my bag haha. The only thing i'd care about is making it remoisturized if it's too dry. But like they said watch out for mold when trying to rehydrate your weed.

welll i been eyeing this thread for a min becuz i wanned to add sum weight on em , i had bout n 8th , i used half of the banana peel ,crammed the weed in the middle w/ a chiken container my mom saved , it worked great, it sorta looked like a bananna blunt lol neways the buds kinda lookd like they grow trichomes , also the buds were smellin greatbut a piece of one of the smaller buds had like naked eye view of water dropllets but very small , but i smoked it neways n im dumb high but im sayin how can u tell the diffrence in the mold i guess u wud smell it right.....inmo

jcolvv89
07-10-2007, 06:34 PM
so wait...you just get a container, put a peice of bread on the bottom put the bud on that, then a other peice of bread on top...close the container and let it sit and it gets bigger??

booradley
07-10-2007, 10:13 PM
It will weigh more due to moisture from the bread being absorbed by the buds. Used to use this trick to keep homemade cookies soft! But it doesnt actually add more buds. It also seems to me a recipe for moldy buds to me! :)

Stoney Bud

Rehydration

That's the name for what this is about.

The area around a piece of whatever that is moist is very humid.

The humidity is absorbed by anything that is dryer than it is.

In a box, dry weed, moist whatever....

It will equalize.

The dryer becomes moister.

The moister becomes dryer.

If your weed is too dry for you, this will help.

not too sure if this will have any bearing on the flavour, i imagine it would.
orange peels are a good "rehydrator".

shuggy4105

depends on how much bud you want to re-hydrate, just think of the exchange of moisture between the bread and bud.

using a piece of lettuce works best in my opinion..being that lettuce had almost no taste or smell..

You want to rehydrate weed because it tastes smoother then when it is dry. Another trick I learned a while ago is to stick Carrot slices into your stash. It doesn't have any effect on taste, but it does add an Orange Hue.

Growdude
08-14-2007, 03:11 AM
Why not use fresh pot leafs? wont effect the taste and the leaf has plenty of moisture.

First of all, great thread. I have a few questions though. I was considering using the orange technique but I was wondering if anyone could give me the specifics of how you do it. For example, how wide do the peels need to be? How long should they be kept in the container? Bud:Orage ratio? How do you watch for and prevent mold? If somoene could help me out with that, I would greatly appreciate it!

Rdrose
09-04-2007, 09:03 PM
That's a trick that's been used for many years to soften up brown sugar, just put a piece of fresh bread, any kind, WWh, white, rye...leave it in there for a few hours or overnight and the brown sugar will be soft and will have absorbed the moisture of the bread and the bread is all dried out...kinda cool, and a very good idea for softening over dry buds!!

Stoney Bud
09-04-2007, 09:10 PM
After rehydrating your weed with food items, make sure you air your bags or jars often. Mold is a nasty byproduct of using food to rehydrate.

A small piece of sponge with a couple drops of plain water works just as fine as food stuff and has less risk of mold spores developing from the food.

Good luck to all of you.

09-04-2007, 09:21 PM
Carefull ya'll too much moisture and your buds will mold.

Apple slices work well to and give it a little fruity flavor at the same time. But with this method you really need to watch the moisture levels too.:cool:

Kez
09-27-2008, 04:05 PM
Personally i can't see any reason other than one to add moisture to your bud, imo the dryer the better! but this is where the bread can help once again, except toasted rather than normal, the toasted bread is even dryer and so you use the bread technique to dry your bud if you so wished :) or if you don't fancy doing it with toast then just leave a piece of bread out to go a little dry :) gr8 thread!

Here is another really easy method. Take your bag next to the sink turn the water on, get your hand wet. Let a few drops fall from your hand into your bag. Seal it up and wait over night. Poof rehydrated bud.

Another way of re-moistening your OVER dried buds would be substitute the bread with lettuce. Try it, it's worked greatly for me ;) Zip lokc bag+Bud inside+Pieces of lettuce+close it+wait a good 30 minutes=Soft buds again :)

if you pee an orange, and rupture the oil pockets on the orange side by squeezing them, onto the weed. the oils with absorb and it makes a very nice treat.make sure the weed is rather moist tho cause the oil will burn up too fast if its not.

Wow, I read every post and wow. I must admit, I once added spearment leaves, but for no reason other than I was bored and tired of the flavor I'd been smoking for many month's. I half dried the spearmint leaves before adding to jar. It did add a slight minty flavor but it was too big of a pain to do again. Of course if I was "adding weight" to make more money I may think differently...and I would also be a dishonest, money-grubbin jerk for rippin people off.

In my opinion this thread should either be moved to the Harvesting section because it has nothing to do with building any thing, or even better deleted because it is actually about trying to cheat or mislead someone. At best it is like weighing green bud and claiming that for the harvest yield without telling anyone that it was green weight rather than dried/cured weight.

If people want to post about remoisturizing overly dry weed, that is a completely different case, even though they are doing the same thing as most of the posts here. Crap like this is what gives all of us and all of the forums a bad rap!

Just my opinion.

Fruit may cause mold. I use a small pcs of sponge with water in a baggy. Works great. My buds are bone dry in storage in mason jars. When I'm running low on a certain type that's when I take out the bone dry buds and use the sponge in the baggy to moisten them up. Some one here on MP turned me on to this great idea. Green blessings, pass them on...

Look at the date on the last post. This thread is almost a year old kato.

Second, your question, "does kb weigh a lot less than regular bud" is absolutely amazing to me. In my world things weigh what they weigh. In other words, if you think a pound of gold weighs more than a pound of feathers then I have a bridge in New Jersey I want to sell you.
