how to dry hemp

Top Tips To Successfully Dry And Cure Your Fresh Cannabis Buds

The process of growing cannabis does not stop at harvest time. Properly drying and curing your fresh cannabis stash is paramount to prevent mould contamination from taking place. These procedures will also result in buds that taste better and offer a superior high.

Get the answers to 9 of the most frequently asked questions about drying and curing cannabis.

Contents:

Ahhh, harvest time. After watching your ladies grow and flower, it’s finally time to collect your hard-earned buds. But before you can enjoy a toke of some homegrown Kush, you’ll need to dry and cure your freshly harvested weed. Below, we’ll share our answers to some frequently asked questions on the drying and curing process, so you can maximise the flavour and potency of your stash.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRYING AND CURING?

Drying, as the name suggests, involves drying fresh buds so they contain less moisture and can be smoked or vaporized properly. Curing, on the other hand, involves storing your buds in closed containers over a period of at least two weeks. This helps develop the flavour and aroma of your buds as they mature.

WHY DO I NEED TO DRY AND CURE MY CANNABIS?

Drying your cannabis flowers serves several important functions that ultimately increase the quality and shelf-life of the end product.

Freshly harvested cannabis buds contain a significant amount of moisture, which needs to be dealt with before smoking. Why? First, smoking fresh buds serves up harsh hits with little flavour—if the buds are able to ignite at all. Removing moisture helps to tone down the harshness and let the terpene profile shine. Second, fungi thrive in dark and moist conditions. By drying your flowers correctly, you’ll dramatically reduce the chances of mould striking your stash.

By placing individual buds on a drying rack—or hanging entire branches in a drying room—you’ll reduce the water content of your buds by 10–15%. This process removes water from the outer layers of each flower, but you’ll need to cure your stash to rid moisture from deeper within the buds.

Curing is super important because it helps preserve your weed so it can be stored over time—while still retaining its unique flavour and maximising potency. When you harvest your buds, they contain excess sugars and starches that eventually come under attack from airborne bacteria and enzymes. By curing your buds, you actually encourage the degradation of these nutrients, making for a smoother, better-tasting final smoke.

Properly drying and curing your fresh cannabis harvest is essential to decrease the risk of mould, and to enhance the taste and high that your buds offer.

Leafly’s guide to drying and curing cannabis buds

After months of hard work carefully tending your plants, you’ve finally harvested a crop of frosty, fragrant cannabis buds that you just can’t wait to try. But first, they need to be dried. While you may be tempted to dry your cannabis as quickly as possible, curing, a prolonged process of removing moisture from the flowers under controlled environmental conditions, will provide a much better product for multiple reasons.

Proper cannabis curing increases potency

Cannabis plants produce tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and other cannabinoids through a process called biosynthesis, in which certain compounds are gradually converted into new blends. For example, THCA becomes the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, THC.

This process doesn’t completely stop the second you cut down your plant; if you keep freshly harvested cannabis in temperatures between 60 and 70°F and humidity level between 45-55%, the conversion of non-psychoactive cannabinoids to THCA will continue and your buds will gain potency. Quick drying under warm, dry conditions halts this process much faster.

Curing affects flavor and quality of smoke

Many of the aromatic compounds (terpenes) that give cannabis its unique smell and flavor are quite volatile, and can degrade and evaporate at temperatures as low as 70°F. A slow cure at low temperatures will preserve these terpenes better than a quick, hot cannabis drying process.

These conditions also create an optimal environment for enzymes and aerobic bacteria to break down leftover minerals and the undesirable sugars produced by the decomposition of chlorophyll during the drying process. The presence of these sugars and leftover minerals is what causes the harsh, throat-burning sensation you get from smoking improperly cured cannabis.

Curing preserves your cannabis

A proper cure allows you to store your cannabis for long periods without worrying about mold or the loss of cannabinoid content. Well-cured flowers can be stored in an air-tight container in a cool, dark place for up to two years without significant loss of potency.

How to dry and cure your cannabis

There are many ways to cure cannabis buds, but most people use a variation of one popular method. Although you can freeze dry, water cure, or even dry-ice cure your buds, we are going to focus on the easiest and surest way to get the best results from your harvest.

Initial cannabis drying

How you complete this step will depend on how you harvest your cannabis. The most popular way is to cut 12-16” branches from the plants, remove unwanted leaves, and then hang the branches from string or wire. Some growers cut and hang whole plants, while others will snip buds from branches and place them on cannabis drying racks. You may fully manicure your flowers before drying, or wait until after.

Regardless of which method you prefer, you will need to keep the harvested cannabis in a dark room with temperatures kept within the 60-70°F range and humidity between 45-55%, with a small fan to gently circulate the air. This is crucial to preserving the flavor and aroma of your harvested bud in the finished product, so it’s recommended that you have a dehumidifier, A/C unit, or another method for ensuring that conditions stay in this range.

When the flowers feel a little crunchy on the outside and the smallest branches snap when you bend them rather than fold, you’re ready for the next step. Depending on the density of the flowers and the environmental conditions, it can take anywhere from 5 to 15 days for the initial drying to be complete.

Final cannabis cure

Once you have determined that your cannabis buds are mostly dry, it’s time to cure them.

Step 1: Manicure your buds and separate them from the branches, if you have not done so already.

Step 2: Place the trimmed buds into some type of airtight container. Wide mouth quart-size canning jars are the most commonly used container, but you can use ceramic, metal, wood, or plastic vessels as well. Some people use oven bags, which are perfectly fine, but most plastic bags are unsuitable for curing as they are not impervious to oxygen and can degrade when they come in contact with certain terpenes found in cannabis. Pack the flowers loosely into your containers, filling them all the way to the top without compacting or crushing the buds.

Step 3: Seal the containers and place them in a cool, dry, dark spot to finish the curing process. Within the first day, you will notice that the buds are no longer crunchy and dry on the outside, as moisture from inside the flowers rehydrates the outer portions. If this is not the case, you have over-dried your cannabis.

Step 4: During the first week, open the containers several times per day and let the flowers “breathe” for a few minutes. This allows moisture to escape and replenishes the oxygen inside the container. If you notice the odor of ammonia when opening a container, it means the buds are not dry enough to be cured and anaerobic bacteria are consuming them, which will lead to moldy, rotten cannabis. After the first week, you will only need to open the containers once every few days or so.

After 2 to 3 weeks in containers, your cannabis will be cured enough to provide a quality experience, but 4 to 8 weeks of cure time will improve it even more. Some strains benefit from 6 months or more of curing.

The curing process is possibly the most overlooked aspect of cannabis production, one that was all but ignored when the black market was our only option. Due to competition in the medical and recreational cannabis markets, more producers are paying attention to this process that turns a decent product into a truly excellent one, and now you can do the same with your homegrown flowers.

Properly drying your cannabis after harvest improves the potency, quality, and preservation of your crop. Learn how to correctly cure your own cannabis.

hemp seeds for hair growth

The secret to beautiful hair & skin: Hemp seed oil

Feel beautiful from head to toe with this wonder oil

It seems there’s no limit to the strange and wonderful ingredients currently hitting the beauty shelves recently, from seahorse plankton to dragons’ blood, we’ve seen it all. But what is hemp seed oil, where does it come from and what are the benefits?

What is hemp seed oil?

Hemp seed oil has been extracted from hemp seeds, unlike CBD which is extracted from the flowers and leaves. The oil is packed with essential fatty acids omega-3, -6 and -9 – all important for naturally moisturising and restoring healthy hair and skin.

It’s also completely renewable (the plant grows in just 4 months and doesn’t need any pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers), the plant breathes in four times more CO2 than trees and requires very little water to grow. Once harvested, its stalk, leaves, flowers, and, of course, it’s seeds, are all used to form beauty products, food and even clothing – wow.

Reduce hair loss and breakage

The high content of fatty acids stimulates healthy hair growth, as well as Vitamin A, which can help to reduce hair loss and breakage. The oil not only contains the three omegas, its packed with vitamins D, E and magnesium which help stimulate new hair growth. It can also help blood circulation which also results in stronger, healthier and longer hair. The wonder oil can help to soothe itchiness and dryness on the scalp and deter dandruff from forming.

Handpicked content: Hair: Get the gloss

Moisturise your skin

The oil will nourish and restore dry skin and the fatty acids within are believed to affect immune responses in the body which may help to soothe the effects of some skin conditions such as eczema, acne and psoriasis.

It’s completely non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog your pores), non-greasy and easily absorbed – sign me up!

Halt premature aging

Its properties can help to improve skin renewal and elasticity as well as help to slow down cellular skin aging.

Hemp Seed Oil for Hair

Hemp is a member of the Cannabis sativa species of plant. You may have heard this plant referred to as marijuana, but this is really a different variety of Cannabis sativa.

Hemp seed oil is a clear green oil made by cold-pressing hemp seeds. It’s different from cannabidiol (CBD), which is an extract produced from hemp flowers and leaves.

Hemp seed oil typically doesn’t contain the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which provides the high associated with marijuana use.

Hemp seed oil is said to have many health benefits, among them that it protects hair from damage. Read on to find out more.

There isn’t much clinical research on the benefits of using hemp seed oil on your hair. Advocates of the practice suggest that research on other similar oils that benefit hair may also apply to hemp seed oil.

For example, according to a 2015 research article , certain oils — such as coconut oil — can play a role in protecting hair from damage by:

  • preventing too much water from being absorbed by hair
  • helping to prevent the penetration of certain substances into hair follicles
  • prevent hair breakage by enhancing lubrication of the shaft.
  • prevent hair breakage by reducing the combing force of wet hair

Some believe these may also apply to hemp seed oil.

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are considered to be good for hair when taken as an oral supplement. Hemp seed oil has plenty of both.

For example, a 2015 study found improvement in the hair diameter and hair density of participants who took omega-3 and omega-6 oral supplements over the course of six months.

Researchers on the study also discovered that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in combination with antioxidants prevented hair loss in participants who took them.

Hemp seed oil has 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids. It also contains smaller amounts of three other polyunsaturated fatty acids: oleic acid, stearidonic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid.

A tablespoon of hemp seed oil contains 14 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, and 12.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat.

Hemp seed oil also includes:

  • antioxidants, such as vitamin E
  • carotene
  • phytosterols
  • phospholipids
  • chlorophyll

Along with modest amounts of iron and zinc, hemp seed oil also contains a number of minerals, including:

  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • sulfur
  • potassium
  • phosphorus

Hemp and marijuana are varieties of the same plant. Advocates of hemp seed oil for hair claim that it can moisturize and strengthen hair, as well as stimulate hair growth. We'll discuss the possible benefits of hemp seed oil for hair here.

is cbd oil legal in sc

Is CBD Oil South Carolina Legal In 2020? Where To Buy It?

Cannabidiol is a substance that can be found in cannabis. CBD is now a trend in the medical industry because of its therapeutic benefits including relief from anxiety, reduction of some forms of pain, and prevention of seizures. Even if it doesn’t have any psychoactive effects and it has a lot of health benefits the status of Cannabidiol is a complicated one. It varies from place to place. With Cannabidiol establishing itself as an industry of its own and growing vastly in the health and wellness market, it is natural for residents to wonder where one could easily score this compound praised for having many health benefits.

The South USA has been slow to move towards legalizing cannabis, and SC is no exception to that rule. This conservative state has restricted the use and selling of these. Marijuana for medical and recreational purposes is illegal in SC. Possession of this is a criminal offense. First-time offenders can face up to 30 days in jail and a maximum of $565 fine for possession of it.

But for certain patients, low-tetrahydrocannabinol is allowed to treat terminal or chronic illnesses like epilepsy as long as it has a recommendation from a physician licensed by the state.

Like other states in the USA, Cannabidiol stores are popping in many towns and cities inSC. Is it illegal? If yes. What are the limitations? Where can you buy Cannabidiol in SC?

Is CBD Oil Legal in South Carolina?

Yes, CBD is okay to buy and sell in SC but there is a specific limitation in the state that only if these products are derived from hemp plants. The state’s cannabidiol laws are a lot as with the federal law because it centers around whether CBD contains less than 0.3% THC and has been derived from hemp.

There is a distinction between marijuana and industrial hemp. In alignment with the federal law, it considered anything with more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol to be illegal and anything with less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol to be hemp. Hence, everything that had been derived from industrial hemp is considered legal.

This also means that cannabis-derived cannabidiol products are considered illegal in the state.

For the summary, these are the guidelines for determining the legal CBD products:

  • It should be from a hemp plant
  • Should have less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol concentration
  • CBD-derived products should only be prescribed as medication.

If they meet all the above requirements, they can be legally possessed, sold, and consumed in SC. The board also requires people who want to produce Cannabidiol or grow hemp plants to be licensed by the state.

Hemp-derived CBD can now be sold at stores throughout the place. SC hasn’t specified limits on how much CBD you are allowed to buy, consume, or possess. Hence, hemp-derived CBD is somewhat unregulated in this state.

But still, it is illegal to have marijuana for recreational purposes with or without a medical marijuana ID card. Possessing and selling an illegal Cannabidiol such as marijuana has offense penalties that go up to 10 years in prison and up to 10,000USD fine. It is important to note that marijuana is illegal in SC whether it is for medical and recreational purposes.

Cannabidiol that are recommended for epilepsy, seizure disorders, and other health cases are authorized under a separate SC law. The State allows people to use Cannabidiol products as long as they have a recommendation from a licensed physician.

You can legally possess Cannabidiol products if you are:

  • Suffering from Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, Dravet Syndrome, other critical epilepsy.
  • It cannot be treated by other medicines unless Cannabidiol.
  • Have a recommendation from a physician or doctor of osteopathy from SC.

Thinking about buying CBD oil South Carolina but not so sure if it is CBD legal? Read on to discover is CBD legal in South Carolina in 2020.

Is CBD Oil Legal in South Carolina?

Yes! Hemp-derived CBD oil is legal to purchase and sell in South Carolina (SC). As long as the THC content is under 0.3 percent and it is not added to food products, CBD oil is legal in the state.

The question, “is CBD oil legal in South Carolina?” might seem like a simple yes or no question, but there’s so much more to it. Like a lot of achievements, hemp legalization in South Carolina encompasses its fair share of milestones and setbacks. It’s also been pretty recent since hemp cultivation was officially legalized, making it a hot topic of debate and discussion in the area.

The Road to Hemp Legalization in South Carolina

As they say, it’s all about the journey. South Carolina’s journey to CBD legalization consists of legislation and events that have sparked progress and even brought some roadblocks that need more time for development.

2014 – Julian’s Law/S1035/H4803

In 2014, Governor Nikki Haley signed Senate Bill 2015, also known as Julian’s Law. This bill allowed children with a certain debilitating medical condition to be treated with CBD oil if recommended by a physician. The legislation specified that the CBD oil must have a minimum of 98 percent CBD and a THC level of no more than 0.9 percent. It also stipulated that the CBD oil must be obtained from the Medical University of South Carolina.

Julian’s Law also opened up the opportunity for physicians to participate in a statewide medical study of CBD oil for other medical conditions.

2017 – Industrial Hemp Pilot Program/H3559

The state officially decided to heighten its crop diversity by legalizing industrial hemp cultivation in May 2017. In accordance with the 2014 Farm Bill, a pilot program was established to carry this out. This program authorized up to 20 growing permits for the first year and 40 for the second and third year. Each permit holder was allowed to grow up to 20 acres of industrial hemp for research purposes.

The number of permits granted in the years following would be determined by the Department of Agriculture and institutions of higher learning. It would be in the spring of 2018, where the state’s first 20 contingent cultivators would begin sowing hemp seeds. Interest in the program was strong, with 131 applicants during the first year.

2018 – Farm Bill & South Carolina’s Hemp Farming Act

The Farm Bill, signed by President Donald Trump in December 2018, removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), created wider access to growing licenses and allowed financial institutions to securely conduct business with hemp companies.

South Carolina jumped on board with this bill. Governor Henry D. McMaster signed the Hemp Farming Act, which lifted limits on hemp cultivation. It specifically:

Granted eligibility to anyone who previously applied for a grower permit under the previous pilot program to grow hemp in SC, provided they pass a background check.

Removed the cap on cultivated acreage.

Removed pilot program’s requirement that growers receive a letter of intent from an approved college or university.

The state permitted 113 growers to plant hemp across approximately 3,300 acres in 2019. And per the 2018 Farm Bill, as long as the THC content is under 0.3 percent, it is legal.

2019 – SC Regulators Set Boundaries on CBD

On February 20, 2019, the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) made a statement that drew a line between what was legal and what wasn’t legal when it came to specific conditions around CBD. SCDA claimed CBD itself is legal but not when it’s added to “any human or animal food products for public sale,”

Derek Underwood, Assistant Commissioner of Consumer Protection, explained that until clinical studies can prove that CBD food items are safe and the FDA approves the research, they’ll remain illegal in the state. As a result, South Carolina CBD shops began halting their CBD food products, sticking to selling their non-food CBD products like tinctures.

Looking Ahead in South Carolina

With the legalization of hemp, SC legislators are now considering the possibilities of its sibling plant, marijuana. In September 2015, the Senate Medical Affairs subcommittee unanimously approved a bill that would create a medical marijuana program, but it did not pass.

The South Carolina Compassionate Care Act was proposed in 2018. If it’s signed into law, it would allow individuals with qualifying medical conditions to use medical marijuana. Specifically, it would provide this group with two ounces of marijuana, or an equivalent derivative, every two weeks. No final decisions have been made yet. It advanced to the SC House and Senate in 2019, but the legislative session concluded before the bill could be debated. The deadline to pass it has been pushed to 2020.

Where Can I Find CBD Oil in South Carolina?

South Carolina residents can get CBD products in brick-and-mortar shops throughout the state and from shops online. There are also smoke shops and food stores that carry CBD oils.

Because of the rapid growth and interest of CBD, hemp festivals, like the Lowcountry Hemp Festival, have been popping up in the state to raise more awareness and educate people on the supplement.

Stay Vigilant and Updated with Hemplucid

So is CBD legal in SC? Yes. Will it always remain this way? Maybe. As the CBD industry continues to change, so can state laws. Wherever you live, it’s always important to keep yourself updated with the latest news around CBD in your state to ensure you’re taking the right steps.

About this Hybrid Strain

The cannabis strain dubbed Medusa is far more appealing to look at than the Greek myth’s goddess. Its buds have layered dark and light green flowers spotted with a dense coating of resinous trichomes. This strain emits a scent similar to blueberries, and on the exhale, the taste is like a fruity sweet tea laced with wood and earth.

Some consumers have noted that Medusa can have the effect of creating a long-lasting body buzz that relieves tension and muscle spasms. Some have experienced relief from chronic pain while others have used it to help with glaucoma. Others have tried Medusa for its potential to help with symptoms of depression as mood improves and insomnia may be addressed as well since it’s been found to occasionally lead to sedation.

THC levels of Medusa average from the mid-teens to low 20’s while CBD levels are higher than average falling at just 1%.
