Hey ladies and gentlemen I am looking for a jar to cure my MJ after I harvest it. Will any glass jar with a lid do? Any help is appreciated!
After MJ is dried, there are zillions of curing methods used. I've met a lot of growers that cured using their own "special" method. Curing is the process that brings about the rapid destruction of chlorophyll. Curing brings out the aroma and flavor of each strain of MJ. Before MJ is cured, the leaves contain 80-85% water. After the curing cycle, there is essentially no water left. The method of drying MJ prior to introducing a slow cure is also critical to its flavor, aroma, and it's type of burn. The slower cures are favored for the mildness of the smoke, but can take as long as three years. During the drying and curing processes, special care must be taken to prevent mold and insect infestation.GanjaGuru said:Glass has several disadvantages.

Purists may disagree, but I cure my weed in 1 gal. plastic containers from my local fast-food dive, the kind that once contained mustard, relish, etc.
They seal almost as tight (screw-on top) as a Mason jar, hold way more inc. l-o-n-g buds, and by using them you'll be recycling, good for the earth.
