Can weed go bad?
My remaining outdoor from last year 14 months old now is stored in a dozen 1-quart jars, and a single 1 gallon jar. I think they might be starting to go bad though. Is anyone familiar with this? Symptoms: Turning very brown.
Losing marijuana smell, and smelling different. Not a bad smell per say, but dull and not like MJ. Stored in 1-quart Mason jars Stored inside a cooler Darkin basement under the stairs Temp fairly stable around 65deg F all year Thanks! Are you burping them.
I had some mason jars I misplaced from last summer stoned when I hid them. Found them a couple weeks ago browned out and smelled like mold when I opened. My remaining jars from last summer are still going strong.
Gots to burp them I try to weekly.
Jimster Supporter. Your buds are beginning to break down and probably infested with mold The humidity and lack of O2 will cause the buds to cure like tobacco and lost chlorophyll, at first, then ruin the bud's flavor and potency if allowed to continue. Getting the sweet spot is important when storing in mason jars, since the water in the stems will eventually work it's way out an raise the Rh inside the jar. A burp every now and then will help to keep it just right. Sometimes overpacking can cause problems too.

Think the resin is still good, after removing plant material? I took a more thorough sniff of everything last night. I'm not smelling ammonia really. Just a big reduction in the yummy marijuana smell.
It's hard to describe what the new smell is. It's plain and boring. Almost like the lumber section of a hardware store. That's the best I could come up with :. I'm hesitant to call it musty, as that kind of implies moldy to me. And it doesn't smell moldy. Earthy is more appropriate, but there is an unhappy undertone to it I know this is an awful description, LoL. I think it's fair to say that it is starting to go bad, and is most likely degrading.
I'm just wondering if the oils still have potency and flavor left. I'm sure the plant material is degrading, but didn't know if the oils degrade as well when herb starts to turn bad.

That will kill active molds and improve the taste of the hash.
Why are my weed leaves turning brown?
Then, don't work too hard. A gentle "mushing" will get most of the capitate resin glands. Dirty hash, yuck. So, be gentle. Harvest top quality bubble, then drain, and dry the wet mess until it's bone dry. If you want "pretty" golden oil, chill the buds and the alcohol to below freezing and do a short, 5 minutesoak.
If making medical grade RSO, I soak longer at room temperature. That yields a Black oil that is more medically effective. Either way will recover as much, or more resin by weight than the hashing did. I'm on a tight budget, so, rather than boil off the alcohol, I reclaim it with a small still.

Farmer P. I recommend putting that bud in the micron bag with some dry ice and shaking it over a large mirror or piece of glass. The glands pick up some moisture from the process so let it dry before jarring. This makes a very stable light fluffy hash. No need to use water. The problem was that your herb was too moist when you stored it.
