Why do we cure our cannabis?

Curing weed in the right conditions improves potency and flavor. Curing is done in the dark as UV rays degrade cannabis. The ideal temperature is around 60F and at around 60% Relative Humidity (RH). The curing promotes decarboxylation turning THCA to into THC, without losing the aroma from terpenes which evaporate away when warmer. Keeping (RH) at 60% helps to prevent mold if it’s too wet, while not allowing the weed to dry out. Over time, color and aroma improve. You’ll also find the weed smokes a lot smoother.

At Aura, we cure our weed for 1-3 months (depending on the strain) ensuring you get the best quality product.
