OK so the only downfall i know to this are the following and correct me if i’m wrong.

wet weed doesn’t burn well. which results in burning up all the THC before you get the majority of it.
the smoke is harsh and hurts the throat because of all the chlorophyll.

other than these two items anybody else have any down side to smoking wet bud?

9 weeks and harvested and was thinking about smoking a small wet sample to test it.

Grab a side plate and a bowl, heat the bowl in the microwave on full for 3-3.5 mins while u place some cut up bud between some sheets of kitchen/ loo roll

When the microwave is done place the paper on the bowl, plate on top and put back in microwave (don’t turn it on its just nice n warm) wait 5 mins, remove change the now wet paper for fresh stuff while u reheat the bowl n repeat the process until dry

Mine too 3 times tops, smokes fine, still tastes shite but it crumbles n burns fine but u loose lots of size / weight so it’s better to wait but I totally understand dude

OK so the only downfall i know to this are the following and correct me if i'm wrong. wet weed doesn't burn well. which results in burning up all the THC…

What to Do if Your Weed Gets Wet

We’re all human. Mistakes happen. Anyone who smokes frequently eventually loses their weed, accidentally throws it away, or even spills a drink all over their stash. The “my weed got wet” moment isn’t a fun one. If you’re reading this now for that very reason, you’re probably asking a few questions. Can you still smoke weed if it gets wet? What happens when weed gets wet? What the best way to dry wet weed? Fortunately for you, we know a few methods for safely drying it out. These tricks won’t work every time, but it’s worth a shot, right?

The Problem With Wet Weed

You might be tempted to just ignore the fact that your weed is wet – we suggest not doing this. First off, over time, wet weed will develop mold. Moldy weed is dangerous to your health, so you should do everything you can to prevent its development. Additionally, wet marijuana is almost impossible to grind; and even if it was already ground before it got wet, it’s incredibly difficult to burn. Finally, even if you do manage to somehow get it to burn, it’ll taste awful. Damp, acrid weed with excess water vapor due to moisture is a very unpleasant experience. Trust us.

There are three specific occurrences that, unfortunately, make it unsafe to smoke your bud. Regardless of whether you dry it out successfully, weed is no longer safe to smoke if it’s been run through the washing machine or dropped in a pool or the ocean. Marijuana that’s been contaminated by sea salt or chemicals like chlorine and detergent aren’t safe to smoke.

How to Dry Your Wet Weed

The Paper Method

If you’re wondering how to dry wet weed, there are two primary options: the paper method and the rice method. The paper method is the fastest way to dry weed. Just follow these steps:

  1. Break up your nugs into smaller pieces
  2. Tightly wrap your wet marijuana in thick paper towels
  3. Place your wrapped weed in a dry, dark area
  4. Turn on a nearby fan or dehumidifier (not necessary, but helps prevent mold)
  5. Change the paper every few hours until your weed is dry

One downside to this method is a higher potential for mold. Because it’ll be in direct contact with the paper that’s absorbing water, there’s a chance that moisture will build and mold will grow. Make sure to keep an eye out for this if you choose the paper method.

The Rice Method

This method takes a little more time, but mold is much less likely to grow in the process. The rice method works for weed the same way it does for wet electronics. Follow these steps:

  1. Place your weed in a container of rice (mason jars are ideal)
  2. Put your uncovered container of rice in a dry, dark area
  3. Turn on a nearby fan or dehumidifier (not necessary, but helps prevent mold)
  4. Leave the marijuana in rice for 24 hours
  5. If there’s any leftover moisture, break up your weed nugs and commence with the paper method

The biggest downside to this method is that your bud will likely be covered in residual rice flower and have a faint rice smell (however, this is part of what makes it work so effectively).

What Not To Do

If you’re wondering how to dry weed as fast as possible, please refer to one of the two methods above. Other, quicker methods won’t be nearly as effective. Blow drying, putting it in the sun, and especially microwaving weed are all going to lower the quality of your bud and make it much harsher to smoke. Even leaving it out in the open with a fan may result in a lower-quality smoking experience. Also note that heat, light and humidity all increase the likelihood of growing mold. Instead, take your time, use one of the two methods above, and dry your wet bud in a dark, dry, well-ventilated area.

As we’ve previously stated, it’s really unhealthy to inhale mold. We know it’s sad, but you’re better off throwing away moldy weed than smoking it and getting really sick. Plus, moldy weed will taste absolutely disgusting. Both before and after you dry it, check your weed for mold. Generally speaking, mold will form as a powdery white substance on the surface of your nugs. Dark spots or yellow/gray fuzz may also appear where it shouldn’t, along with slime and sickly smell. If your weed has been wet and shows any of these sings, toss it.

How To Avoid Getting Your Weed Wet

Correct cannabis storage will ensure your weed is less likely to get wet and more likely to stay in quality condition. Safe storage will also stop moisture from causing mold overtime. The answer to “does marijuana go bad” is a resounding yes. Poor storage can result in bad weed. Follow these tips to ensure your weed stays smokable and accident-proof.

  • Use airtight jars to store weed in dry, dark places
  • Only take out how much weed you’re going to smoke at any given time
  • If you have to travel with weed, keep it in a small, air-tight container
  • Keep your weed away from pools and never put it in your swimwear pockets
  • Be gentle with your weed and treat it like it’s worth something (because it is!)

These storage and drying methods are tried-and-true, but we also know the cannabis community is a fairly crafty crew. Share your personal tips and tricks for drying and safely storing weed, below. We’re always looking for better ways to keep our weed safe and smokable.
