I have ‘washed’ some buds before too and when dried - those buds were the nicest to smoke and more compact than the other bud from the same batch. I only rinsed them through luke-warm water coz i had dropped some in soil and never noticed til next day or two, hence why I washed em.
When i have a surplus of weed ( lol ) I’ll definitely have another go ,this time just a wee dip and dry of half a plant and see what’s best.
I heard of water curing ,anyone regularly water curing on here .? I think the taste or smell are affected but potency is better / probably great for smoking in company if no noticeable smell, eh .?!
I’m Rambling lol …!! - ( that’s when you know your weed is good …! )
