As per tittle buds been drying for over 2 weeks now. Thought were dry after 12 days but when I stuck in jar for 24 hours they were wet again and one jar had a nasty stink (maybe mold?)so I took them all out & put them out to dry again. The buds are crispy on outside but sticky/damp on inside when grinded.

I often find my buds dry in 7 days because I dry in boxes in grow room while other plants are finishing so temps are high. This time I have no other grow running and first time in a long while I am doing it properly. Temps are around 15c and I have extraction running with CF and passive intake only.

The buds are not that fat so I am shocked they are not dry yet. Should I just let them keep drying or should I try and speed it up?

Thanks in advance for any help

May have something to do with the quite high background RH we are experiencing, I'm finding all sorts of things feel 'damp' if left out.

just keep putting them in the jars overnight untill the moisure is all the way through bud again.. then let them air for a while then repeat untill perfect...

it will be the moisure in the air ...

my buds smelt freekin rank the first few days .. but after all the damp staleness goes... MMMMMMM MMMMM

Have a search for curing if you havn't already.. B)
