Have you ever gone home with your newly acquired medical marijuana and a smile on your face, only to pop open the bottle and realize that the smell just isn’t there? Or if it is, it isn’t right. You madam, or sir, have experienced the improper cure. A quick run down of the process: Plants grow, bud, mature, and are killed for pleasure by the sadistic grower. When the buds on the plants are ready for culling, it is time for drying and curing. When you get bud that is unusually harsh, it is usually due to improper drying and curing. There are sugars, starches, and chlorophyll that are unpleasant to smoke. They need to slowly break down and create terpenes, the oils that smell good in medical marijuana. All these great smelling oils are packed at the core of the bud (if grown properly). For the oils to evenly coat the bud from the inside out the bud needs …TIME. So if your bud does not have the right smell, your grower is either impatient or doesn’t know better. In either case I would wonder what else they did wrong. Let’s be clear. There’s a lot they can do wrong.
There’s a big dark-side to growing involving growth regulators, pesticides and mold – basically chemicals and contamination. Growth regulators and pesticides are shortcuts to producing something that can look and smell similar to medical marijuana. But you won’t like the unlisted side effects. Growth regulators are a cancer needle in a hay stack, so you’ll probably be just fine. Pesticides are chemicals that don’t play nice with your body, and in small doses are also referred to as poison. The lungs have a fairly direct bloodline to your brain. Yeah. Watch yourself.
On a lighter note, thank you for reading.

Smoke no bud before its time.
