ok, well thanks for letting me know, but then why is it written in about 10 books that i own that it helps make the weed better ( example: 4th edition cannibus grow bible). i just want the info before i decide.
Smoking moldy weed is sort an urban mj myth that I first heard back in '67.
Beatniks told me to put the weed in a jar, add a few tablespoons of wine, and bury it for a month.
This was supposed to make the weed more potent.
Maybe it did; I don't know.
Hitting yourself in the back of the head with a hammer after you smoke a joint will get you more fucked up than weed alone I suppose, but I wouldn't do it.
The person that told me about smoking moldy weed was a chem. major. He explained that burying wine-moist weed for a month changed the weed like adding an 02 molocule or something.
Frosty'..during the cure process, chemical changes do occur, a sort of coposting.
A floral cluster is not dead after harvest any more than an apple is. Certain metabolic activities take place for some time, much like the ripening and eventual spoiling of an apple after it is picked. During this period, cannabinoid acids decarboxylate into the psychoactive cannabinoids and terpenes isomerize to create new polyterpenes with tastes and aromas different from fresh floral clusters. It is suspected that cannabinoid biosynthesis may also continue for a short time after harvest. Taste and aroma also improve as chlorophylls and other pigments begin to break down.
ok, i read gg's curing 101, and the method sounds about the same, so i just have to cure them in the jars and take them out b4 the mold starts, then they should be more potent, please reply back if that sounds right. and thanks everyone for your input.
