It is understandable that you would want to sample your fresh bud before actually taking the time to cure it properly for a 6-8 week period. However, I have found a method that seems to work a little better than the paper bag method for quick-dry sampling. If you have one of the old projection-style CRT computer monitors (basically any monitor that is not a plasma screen), then you can put a small nug inside a folded up paper towel, and sit it on top of the vents on the back of your monitor. The ambeint temperature of the air is approximately 110-120 degrees farenheight, and THC does not cook off until 135-140. Come back in about 6-10 hours, depending on the thickness of your bud, and you should be able to get a tasty sample. Just be prepared for the harsh flavor due to the fact that you have not broken down the chlorophyll in any sort of curing process.
