Dear Dan,
I just harvested a week ago and my buds are ready for the curing process. My question is, how much is too much when loading jars for curing? — 420Animal

Dear 420Animal,

When curing, your glass jars should be full, but not overfilled. There should be plenty of air in the jar so don’t stuff the buds down into the jar. Basically, you don’t want to crush the buds and damage the trichomes so gently fill the jars but don’t press or force more in than comfortably fits.

Remember to “burp” the jars on a daily basis to let out any accumulated moisture. The slow release of liquid into the air and the replacement of moist air with regular air is the curing process in a nutshell. If you smell anything that resembles ammonia coming out of the jars, leave them open until the odor subsides and the buds don’t feel damp anymore.
