Cure or Curing is the process of removing moisture from a Cannabis flower in a Controlled Environment. Curing starts right after Harvest, and when the flowers are cut down and changed into a completely dark environment with controlled temperature and humidity for a few weeks then they are put into an airtight container for a certain period of time while also providing air from time to time for the flower to break starch and sugars. Curing makes the flower bud ready for consumption. The better the curing, the better the potency of bud will be. If a bud is not cured properly one will experience harsher inhale and bad-smelling bud.
