which works better , or do they work just the same?
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.
will the box work tho?
yes of course
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.
..or you could build your own for about 25% of the cost..
How fast do the buds dry in this style dryer?
The one I built left the buds hanging. Best of both worlds.
Does it smoke better if it looks pretty?
Mine gets into all kind of shapes, its the High im after, not her looks
Can I ask whats there difference from hanging them or leaving them on a shelf?
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.
id say no ive had some gnarly lookin weed some cat piss dont remember if it was that or the sour diesel or maybe some else like my GDP didnt cure it at all was alright but when oven dried kinda paperish but still a very good smoke without a bad exhale
keep it green
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....
