There may already be an answer to this question but I can't find it. Does boiling the roots during harvest really improve the bud, and if so how much? What I'm asking about is I've been told to clean the dirt off of the roots, then blanch/boil them by plunging then into boiling water for anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes depending on who is talking, then hang them by the root ball while drying the plant. I'm having a hard time believing this because once the plant is killed by either boiling the roots or cutting the stem, how can the THC or cannaboids continue to develop? Also, how do you do that in hydro when the roots are all entangled in the net pot? Am I getting smoke blown up my posterior or am I just too skeptical? I apologize for the messed up punctuation in the first option but I don't seem to be able to edit it. Thanks for any help you can give because I'm getting about 50/50 on this question and I want to max out my quality, but don't want to go to the trouble if the benefits is very slight. Good smoking everyone?
