    I think hang drying is preferred over drying on a screen because the screen will leave unsightly flat spots on your bud. After spending all that time on those buds, might as well look fantastic right? Just my thoughts, good luck either way though. Take care my friend.

    After using a herb dryer, I would never go back to hang drying.
    My herb dryer also has a carbon filter in it that eliminates the odors you have when you hang them to dry. Don't have to worry about mold either.
    I compared the potency doing it both ways, I could tell no difference. Best investment I made.

    Psycologically, for most people, yes... it actually smokes better. That's really all that matters. If you see a nice bud and honestly believe that it will be better; then it will be. That's why plecebos have cured more illnesses than any other medication. That's why people are hesitant to eat disgusting looking food.

    I can't think of any other reason it would really make a difference though; other than some of the trichomes, on the side it's laying on, being destroyed.

    I dry flat; unless it's a big cola, by the way. I seem to get a more even dry, without having to worry about turning/flipping, when I hang dry my colas.

    Depending on the size of the bud, average is 3 to 4 days.

    ok, hang drying is quicker but not betterin every instance...the slower cure the smoother the smoke. some methods you can cure quicker- but if you take a slow cure compared to a short water cure the slow cure will be better but the quick cure might outweigh it because of necessity....

    catch my drift>?


    goodluck, i like a flush before chop plus a slow jar cure after hanging AND bagging....
