How to rehydrate dry grass
Your marijuana is dried up, don't worry, you can bring it back to life! One of the saddest things that can happen to someone is to roll a joint and find that their stash has dried up.
There are two main reasons why grass becomes dry: either it has dried out too much after harvest, or it has not been stored properly. If you cut your grass to dry it out, the stems will quickly lose their stiffness. The best way to tell if it's dried properly is to break a stem in half, but if the stem continues to bend, you need to extend the drying time.
However, if you live in an arid climate, you may need a humidifier.
When it comes to storage, beginners often make many mistakes that eventually cause their weed to dry out or become brittle. These errors are: refrigeration or freezing, exposure to too much humidity and high temperatures.
But if you end up with dried grass, don't worry. We're here to help before you decide to throw away that dry weed. Before you begin, remember that you shouldn't smoke dry, crumbly weed – it's extremely harsh on your throat and hurts your lungs. Not to mention its unpleasant taste.
Why rehydrate your weed ? Well, in most places, weed doesn't come cheap. Getting rid of your stash because it's dry is like throwing money away. But no one wants to smoke dried weed. The good news is that rehydrating your stock is simple, easy, and not a lot of work, so you can do it yourself.
Rehydration of your dry stock
Since your weed is dry, you will need to expose it to a certain level of humidity to rehydrate it effectively. Dried weed will probably have no flavor or aroma left, which is why you smoke it in the first place.
The Bud should be exposed to humidity levels between 6-9%, and if it is above 65%, it can lead to mold growth. When it is dried, the moisture content should be less than 15%, then the curing consists of drying it until it reaches an even lower level, namely around 9%. Rehydrating weed usually involves placing the weed with another moist object in an airtight container, which helps create a microclimate. This allows water from the wet object to be transferred to the dry object until there is an even humidity system.
However, remember that for best results you should always use distilled water. Indeed, distilled water has already undergone the process of evaporation and condensation, and it has passed through a filter. This ensures that the distilled water is completely free of chemicals and impurities that may affect the cannabis when rehydrating.
If you like added flavors and aromas, you can also experiment with adding herbs such as cilantro, mint, thyme, or other fragrant herbs.
Rehydrate your weed probably isn't something you want to do often. That's why prevention is always key, and you can avoid it by making sure you store it properly from the start.
If you want to make sure you always smoke the freshest cannabis, you might consider investing in a humidifier. There are plenty of cannabis humidors for every budget.
Last but not least, waterproofing and invisibility should always be your motto when you store your weed the next time.
