If you can't wait for your buds to dry...
When you harvest you're weed, you may be overcome with excitement to smoke some right away. While these quick drying techniques will make your weed smokable, take a few weeks to properly dry and cure the vast majority of your buds. Use these techniques only on small amounts to smoke right away. Smoke from quick dried marijuana is harsher and less potent.
- Place your buds on a glass plate. Place the plate in the microwave. To avoid burning, make sure the microwave is set on low (about 30% power, microwaves may vary). Turn on for 10-15 seconds at a time. Pull out and check buds, then rotate them. Do this several times until the weed looks smokable.
- Place the buds on a cookie sheet and put in the oven at around 120 degrees. Bake for about 10 minutes. Pull out and allow to cool, rotate and repeat.
- Place your buds inside an envelope and put the envelope on some heat source. Radiators, old tvs and other heat sources work great. This method can take a couple hours, but will be marginally better than the above methods.
Enjoy a bowl, but don't quick-dry your whole harvest. Properly dried and cured marijuana has much better flavor, smell, potency, and smoothness.
