Before going and drying out your cannabis, be sure you’re not mistaking extremely sticky buds for yet too much wet. Sticky icky was likely cured perfectly, it’s just going to, naturally, stick to your fingers and feel suspiciously damp. But as long as it doesn’t squish when lightly squeezed, leave the sticky alone.

If it’s just a little too moist, putting the buds in a paper bag and then closing it for a few hours could do the trick. If they’re a little more damp than that, rotate having the paper bag opened and closed every 8 hours or so until it crisps up to your standards.

Now if the weed truly was just harvested, the colors will be very vibrant and the plant will feel extremely humid from the inside out. If you’ve broken up a bud that’s wet through and through, it’s time to get your own cure on. Place the ripe nuggets into glass jars as stated above and also routinely open and close the jars.

Depending on just how wet the weed was, this could be a process that takes more than a day and more like a week or so. The smaller popcorn buds will dry faster and can thus be plucked for smoking before the real meaty ones are properly dried and cured.

Truly, genetics and taking care during the grow play major roles in quality cannabis, but if you don’t have a proper cure, it’s not going to be showtime for your buds. A perfect cure means easily ground, evenly smoked, delicious cannabis packed with terpenes and that shows off all the hard work that the breeders and growers put into it.

This shouldn’t happen if you bought it at a legit dispensary so be aware you likely didn’t get what you paid for to begin with, as wet weed is heavier.
