Cut down your cannabis plant

You’ll need to cut down your cannabis plant and hang it upside down in a cool, dry, and dark place. An ideal location would be a closet with good airflow. Make sure to check on your cannabis plant daily and remove any fan leaves that are getting in the way of the drying process. After about a week, your cannabis should be dry and ready to be trimmed!

Hang your cannabis upside down

Hang your cannabis upside down by its stem in a dark and dry room. If you have a fan, point it towards the hanging cannabis, but don’t aim it directly at the plants. You should start to see results within 24 to 48 hours, but it might take up to 5 days for your cannabis to fully dry.

Use a fan to dry your cannabis

If you’re in a hurry to dry your cannabis, using a fan can speed up the process. Place your buds on a rack or screen and position a fan so that it’s blowing across the surface of the buds. The moving air will help evaporate any moisture on the surface of the buds, helping them to dry faster. Just be sure not to dry them too quickly, as this can cause the buds to become crisp and brittle.

Check on your cannabis daily

The first few days after harvesting your cannabis, you’ll want to check on it daily. Buds this fresh are still filled with a lot of water, which means they’re more fragile and susceptible to mold.

You’ll also want to make sure the temperature and humidity in your drying space are where they should be. Too much heat or too much humidity can both lead to problems like mold and mildew.

Store your dried cannabis

Once your cannabis is dry, you’ll want to store it in a cool, dark, and dry place. A glass jar with a tight-fitting lid is ideal. Be sure to label your containers, so you know what’s inside. And if you have more than one strain of cannabis, it’s a good idea to keep them separate.
