Depends, what methods are you using now?

if you can turn all the buds in a mason jar a 1/4 turn congrats its a great idea

cedar boxes w/ multi levels of a tray, then below the trays holes in the board = good also for curing.  mason jars are fun because you can look at it when you wanna w/o opening the box :smile:

the drying by hanging varies do it until your stems snap even if they dont curing is fine as long as u air the jars out and move the buds around

the jars should be open for at least 15minutes I usually leave them open for a tv show or something

I don't know what you mean by giving your buds a quarter turn? They should be redistributed so they dry/cure evenly.

I usually fill my quart jars about 1/3 full and just roll the buds over by tumbling them.

If I needd to free up room I'll combine them when they're on their way to being cured (1-2weeks in?)

dry on racks or w.e till stems snap

then the first 3-4 weeks of curing u should air out the buds but longer won't hurt or necessarily help.

it's so the buds don't mold and by week 3 of curing they should be pretty dried out and cured... after thats its just additional curing and storage.

If you are looking for a different way to cure, water curing is an option. I'm not up to date on the specifics, but it involves layering the bud into a water tight container with a a drain on the bottom (cooler). You then gently fill the tub with water and let it sit for one day, drain and repeat for a week I believe. After that, you will be left with weed that has very little smell, taste, or bag appeal, but very potent and exceedingly smooth smoking. I have heard it will remove most molds as well so thats always a plus.

it's only more potent because of the plant material lost and it does remove molds.

how I water cured... I did 7-9 days and I just used warm (nearly hot to touch) water in a bucket threw some buds in and put a dinner plate ontop of the whole mess to submerge them. I changed the water a bit more than everyday.

the buds also dry out very fast once a lot of the nasties are leached out by warm water cure :O

if the water isn't like boiling it wont hurt your weed

near hot to touch would be warm.

it's supposed to leach the tars and chlorophyll more.
