Why does my weed smell like grass not weed.
    #639994 - 10/11/12 08:42 PM (4 years, 1 month ago)

Just got done with my first medical grow. I followed all the tutorials to get here and I followed a dry and cure tutorial exactly but my weed has a grass smell!

I harvested my plant "White Widow"
I plucked all larger fan leaves off, hung plant up in well ventilated, 35% humidity, and dark place.

I waited 1 day to dry, the buds were getting very brittle and dry thus didn't wait longer. the plant was not very dense with buds thus not drying it for longer.. The stems snapped but stayed connected pretty well.

I have now been curing in a jar and opening every day for oxygen. It continues to smell like grass. Will this go away or did I fuck this up.

btw I harvested 13.2g my first grow, 1 plant! ! buds look amazing

How long has it been curing?  Sometimes it takes awhile.

i think if it felt dry to the touch in 1 day, i think thats way to fast.  if you're weed dries out that fast in your area, i think i would suggest drying them in cardboard boxes with strings to hang and a couple holes cut in the side to allow or some fresh air. 

did you have a fan blowing directly on these?  cuz thats a bad idea.  were they in a hot room or with a lot of light on them, also bad ideas. 

i usually let mine hang dry for 3 days until the outsides are dry to the touch, then i put them in jars with some "breathing" room.  then for the next week i give them about an hour or 2 of fresh air a day, then the next week i just crack the jars to exchange the air.  the 3rd week i do it maybe every other day.  you should be good after that. 

did you mean to say you got 13 ounces or grams?

It had a very slight breeze on them from a small computer sized fan, temperature is around 81F, and humidity is 35%. I meant grams. It has been curing for 2 days now. I think it dried out way too fast!!

2 days isn't near long enough.  Give it a few weeks.

Ok, thanks! I will keep it going! I just read on rollitup saying its never gonna change the smell curing it, it will smell the same from pre-jar to end. That was a random post so we will see.

Ha, that's hilarious.  It wont go from hay to dank as fuck.  But it should attain some smell.  I prefer turkey bags over jars though.  Since your using jars dont forget to open it up every few days, and let it air out.

I've had some buds go from having very little smell and what there was smelled like fresh grass, to having a rich dank ass smell to em, but that took curing it like 8 weeks...

My best run so far
