Your bud’s got it all: It’s sticky, it’s terpy, and it’s fresh! But you can’t spark up freshly cut flower, right? You could propagate the world’s most potent pot but it will all go up in smoke if you don’t dry and cure it! Here are some things you should keep in mind, including using the best commercial cannabis shredder out there!
Terpenes and Tasty Toking
Drying and curing are actually two different processes with opposite goals, happening at the same time. That’s why it’s so hard to get it right! The aim of drying is to get as much moisture out as possible, while curing aims to keep the terps guided toward taste and top toking!
Terpenes are very volatile compounds. This means they escape from your flower at all times, which is why we always bag our bud! If you've ever smoked a nug that's been rolling around in the back of your stash box, you totally get it. Ignoring the terp guides and skipping the curing process is like throwing your bud in the trash!
Terp Guide: How to Cure Flower
Curing may be the last step, but it’s definitely not the least! During this particular process, you’re locking in terpenes and getting the moisture just right. By the time you’re done, your nugs should have a moisture content between 58% and 62%. To test this without fancy equipment, just bend a stem! When bent, the stems should snap instead of giving.
Pro Shredders Use Sensi Shredder PRO
For perfect pre-rolls, awesome edibles, or crave-worthy concentrates, you need to shred your flower with the best commercial cannabis grinder available. When it’s time to get your grind on, put your pounds through a Sensi Shredder PRO for the perfect particulate, every time!
Pro Tip: Flower that’s completed the curing process needs to be stored separately from your uncured flower to prevent moisture from migrating between the batches and ruining both of them!
