I read that trichomes can be damaged by handling them, thus effecting thc content. I have been snipping the buds from the stem and trimming the leaves, and then I put them in an open box lid to dry all on harvest day. Every so often i turn the buds by hand. If i dry inside it usually takes about 3 days for the buds to fully dry, i then put them in jars to cure. From reading I get the idea that i am touching the buds too much, and that it should take longer to dry. Whats the deal? Should I leave the bud on stem to dry, and touch as little as possibe? I would like to hear about different methods people use on here. THG how do you dry and cure?
