What does “Cure” mean?

A slow, controlled process of removing moisture from freshly-grown cannabis makes the buds smokeable. While there are many ways to cure flower the most basic method involves hanging your cuttings in a dark room with controlled humidity and temperature over a period of 1-3 weeks. This results in a shelf-stable product with maximum flavor and potency that can be distributed to retailers. Curing can also be done at a home grow and most farmers swear by the process.

Example usage:

“People who want an even smoke really care about properly cured weed.”
