How To Dry And Cure Your Marijuana Buds

A couple of months ago we discussed how to start a small-scale DIY cannabis garden. We promised we would give more information on what to do after harvesting and True Blue is here to deliver. Last time we talked about growing, and today we’d like to talk about the next steps: drying and curing your buds. Why Cure Your Harvested Buds?

In 1619, Virginia passed a law that required every farmer to grow hemp.
