Harvesting is a joyous time, but if you’re like me, you’ll also feel a tad guilty for cutting down these magnificent plants. In ancient times, celebrations accompanied the harvest and prayers were said to thank the gods for creating the most versatile plant on the planet. While you’ll just use it for medicine, your ancestors would also have converted the fibrous stalk into innumerable necessities like fuel, durable clothing, and long-lasting writing paper.
Cut down your plants at the base of the stalk. Remove all extraneous leaves from the branches so that only the flowers remain. All those big leaves and pointy leaf tips protruding from the long main cola? Trim those off. When you’re finished trimming, hang the plants upside down in a room with lowlight or darkness. Humidity should be 40-60%, but fungi and bacteria thrive in this environment, so make sure to disinfect the area first (spraying rubbing alcohol works well) and maintain adequate ventilation. The longer the cure, the smoother the taste. Depending on how well you control humidity, it will take 3-to-15 days before the flowers are dried out and ready to be smoked. In the meantime, put a few flowers in your oven overnight with just the pilot light on or in a crockpot set on high. By morning, they should be ready to sample. Because you used a fast-curing process, the smoke may be harsh.
These are not my own words but rather a repost of information.
