how to burp weed

Curing Tips: If bud’s are dry, but only been curing for a week or two, do you still burp often?

Thelight413

I’m looking to get some educated insight on curing and what’s actually going on in the process, I understand we are burping to even out moisture levels throughout the bud, aka release the moisture from the center of the bud to have an evenly dried bud..BUT, my question is, if I’ve only been in the cure process for about 2 weeks, but the buds are at about the ideal moisture content I would like them at. should I stop burping the bags? OR is there something going on in the curing process that suggest continuing to burp the bags for say a month or two. Generally I find the buds to start tasting really good around 3-4 weeks off the stem.

What I do, and I’ve had good really good cured flower in my past runs, but I’m in Colorado and it can be extremely dry here so I’m trying to avoid the super dry buds and want to hear what people do, but what i do is dry trim when the buds basically when they “snap” off the stem or a little prior to that (usually takes around 10-21 days depending on dry room environment), and then I put the nugs into liberty bags (turkey bags), generally for the first 7 days in the bag, I will burp once a day for a few minutes each bag, after 7 days I usually burp every other day or every 3 days. I’m curious if people stop burping their bags once they reach the ideal “feel” and moisture content in their buds, or should you keep burping every now and then?

I bought some sealed bone dry bud from the dispo that smelled/tasted like classic “basement res” terrior. After 3 days of opening, it got a gsc-esque sweetness and the res terroir vanished.

I bought some sealed bone dry Bubba at the dispo that smelled like fish guts. 3 days of burping and I smell bubba.

I bought some sealed, refrigerated Sherb from the dispo that smelled/tasted like dirt. 2 weeks of burping and it tasted like sour edible underwear. Went back to the dispensary and theirs still smelled like dirt from being sealed up and never burped. Sitting on the he bottom shelf, potentially the best bud in the city, ruined because of pure willfull ignorance about this plant.

Burping is not about moisture, at all. Anyone who thinks it is has missed the entire point. Which is most people today. You got people trying to preserve undeveloped unfinished weed, it makes no sense. Who would want bud smelling like sugared potting mix instead of sour candy?

Wow, I can’t believe you can dry that long before you put in jars, especially since you said the air is dry. I just hung a plant in 50% humidity cuz it was the best I had, and I had to jar them after 4 days to prevent them from drying too much, too fast.
Sometimes I will even throw it in the jar a little earlier than that, but leave the lid off, to slow the drying process down.

I kinda like my bud like sticky candy tho. I don’t like it to crumble. I like it to chop easily but kinda stick together a little bit, like brown sugar or something lol.
