How would you manicure that?
    #595063 - 11/01/11 06:16 PM (5 years, 1 month ago)



How would you manicure a piece looking like this?
What would be important to remove and what not?
Would cutting with scissors cause much trichomes breakage and loss or failure on proper curing?

Manicure as normal I suppose, if you manicure while fresh you don't have to worry about trichomes falling off, only about how you'll get the hash off you're scissors.

Even if dry, the more you trim off, the more potent the bud is...in my opinion.

I like to hold the bud in my hand, and trim whats off on the right side.

For example, hold out your index finger so you're looking at the knuckle/fingernail. Pretend there are leafs sticking out of it. Anything growing out of the side of your "finger" gets snipped (the part you see when you make a fist). Rotate, repeat, continue.

Once I get that off, I go back through and snip anything that looks too large.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Does leaving the leaves on make a bud go moldy or go wrong?
What if only the stem or part of the stem (petiole) is left on?
How long would it have to be left in open air before closing it in a vessel?

Eeh no leaves are made of pretty much the same stuff as buds, they dont usually rot. However, buds are more potent by weight, so the bigger the bud:leaf ratio, the more potent the final product.
Dry it in a dark place w/ a fan on untill the stems snap. Then they go in jars for about a month (depends on how much you care about smell/taste)

Your bud will rot if the airflow in the drying space is not good enouph (rh needs to stay low), or if you leave the buds in the jar for too long durring the first 2 weeks of curing. Open it every day for about 10 min, mix the buds around.

If you're not selling it and you don't mind smoking leaves then who cares? It'll just make your joints fatter.

Well it ruins the taste a little + why not make some hashish?

Honestly, I just think a bud looks way better well trimmed:)...little clusters of fuzz *.*
I do know people who love leafy weed, but they don't grow, so its mostly cuz leaves look cool to them.

Just trim what ever isn't frosted up with tricomes. Unless of course you have a lot more than that to trim up. Then I'd do a thorough trim and make some bubble hash/edibles.

I made a big batch of cannabutter the other day. I love the potency of edibles........:feelsgoodman:

I usually go around snipping off the biggest leaves at the stem, then the smaller ones that are easily accessible. Once that's done, if I feel it needs a bit more I'll just hold my scissors flat to the bud, but ~an inch from it just cutting off anything that goes past the blades

The reason I'm really anal about trimming is because I find that leafs make the smoke a lot more harsh. They burn too quick and don't hold a cherry in the bowl, they just burn and make really thick smoke that chokes me.

it might be deep bullshit but...
(by weight)
if i pull the roots of the plant the material  would be more  potent
if i took it off the stalk it would then be more potent
if i took all the fan leaves off it would then be more potent
if i pulled out all the stems it would then be more potent
if i manicured a significant amount of sugar leaves i believe it by weight would be more potent.
if i took those sugar leaves made BHO and put it on my manicured buds it would sure as hell be more potent:thumbup:

i just remember hearing that the pot from the 60's/70's had its thc measured by the whole plants weight and now we only measure the thc of manicured buds.
:shrug:
so he kinda has a point.
the more you take off the more potent:shrug:
i guess not but it kinda make sense\im really high:thumbup:

You forgot the one about boilong the roots in hot water to make the thc in the roots and stems go into the bud.

I think he just meant more THC per unit mass of weed in your joint. In which case, he's correct.

But you didn't phrase it in a way which indicated that you mean by volume.  You wrote it in such a way that made it sound if you trim more off the bud itself increases in potency.  We want to make sure that someone reading this isn't confused by your statement.

I said this BEFORE you flamed me.
The second sentence says it all. I understand if you were lazy/:blazed: at the time or just didnt see it before, but asking me to specify seems more reasonable then stating that what I said is bullshit. So yeah, its actually you who didn't phrase it right.
