    When we talk about dryness here we mean water content. Clumping is due to stickiness, which comes from the trichomes and is usually a Good Thing. I keep my stash mostly frozen, which tends to reduce moisture content. For daily use, at my desk I keep a small amount of each strain in a pill bottle along with a desiccant packet. By the time I use it, water content is pretty close to zero.

    Before someone reacts in horror (which happened the last time I mentioned this) the desiccant comes with my medication.

    I don't see a problem. I keep a desiccant pack in with my medicine all the time.

    Some people don't like those... CHEMICALS.... all over and around their goodies. Funny because when I get the factory bottles of pills (not the ones in the store bottles) they've all got desiccants too.

    Shot this one a while ago, a more candid video?

    Easily remedied. I put my desiccant pack in an open baggy that way it never touches the herbs, but can still do its job. :)


    Same here. Lots of times when I get a prescription refilled, they just slap a label on the bottle that came directly from the drug company. Every bottle contains a desiccant pack. Right now, my Synthroid bottle has a round desiccant pack right in with the pills, and I never took it out.

    No problem, provided the pack is food grade. Not all of them are. Often the (usually larger) ones that come in instruments and the like are not at all good for you inside (not a problem if you're a camera....).

    There are also food grade desiccants with indicators (that change color with water content) you can put in a small jar or vial with holes in the lid until it's full, then pop it in the oven until it changes back and you're good to go again. Most of the common desiccants in food are not reversible (IIRC there's a gel change?).

    I'm not worried about the ones I get from my medicine bottles. :)

    To try and get back on topic, using the desiccants, I can keep my medicine really dry, perfect for the MFLB. :)

    Works for me. Of the many things about you I worry about, what kind of desiccant comes from your medicine bottles missed the list somehow anyway?

    I agree with not worrying. Some things you have to take on faith. Besides which if it turns out to be toxic and kills you you can always sue the drug company, right?

    I found some herb under the couch that had been obviously been there for quite some time. It was so dry that I was able to crumble it between my thumb and finger to a coffee grinder consistency. Well, that trench vaped up better than anything else I'd previously tried in my LB! I think what you'd call "fully dried herb" for smoking would be way too moist for efficient vaping! This seems to be a big part of the vape learning curve for those recently making the transition.

    (Oh, and the reason all those Ancient Alien shows exist is because of silly people like me who love those over-the-top esoteric, ridiculous (but creative) theories. I always found it to pair well with full trench.)

    I have been using the new Concentrate Tray.
    I thought I would show you the R&D that
    led up to the BETA Testing model seen to the right.
    The first one to the left was the lightest in weight.. the thinnest, and sort of my favorite... but one does need to do a balancing act with that bubbling dab that sits on top of it!

    Back to the herb curing techniques, my favorite is to stick it in a glass jar (I usually use a mason jar) and throw it in the fridge, sealed. Water will condense on the glass, this will become very apparent, when you remove it from the cold.

    Open the jar, remove your herb and let it sit until it goes back to room temp. Same with the glass. Repeat this, until the herb gets to just lightly crunchy. When you pinch it, it feels sort of dry and crunch... but feels of substance still. Obviously the strain and grow will make a world of difference.

    This actually can work pretty quickly. If its cured for combustion, you can do it in a couple of hours.

    I have tried the trick of the little bottle + a couple little balls and have to admit that well grinded herb changed the experience completely, this is much better that what I thought!!! My GF really loves it, she says is the better gift anyone has made to her lol

    Thanks to all for your answers guys (and girl ;) )!!

    so i have just So I have just figured out that the MFLB batteries are amazing! Lol took me a year and a half. Same batts new bot. So it started when I took my Box with me for the first time in a.... Long time, had 6 months when I didn't have... Lets say... Access to my box (or freedom if you catch my drift). Anywho, I filled the box, and stared with what I used to use as a starting batt. W/ my old box it would get high enough to dry the herb to powderize it in my fingers. Inhale and CLOUDS of vapor came out! Dang!

    Tried my other batt. Mo clouds! I get home and test it out with my PA. With my new replacemenT box I use 30% less power to get the same cloudage lol

    Edit: haven't used them since august b/c i had a PA

    I have started carboxylating mine. 25 minutes wrapped tightly at 230-250 deg. Vapes a lot easier.

    Also, here is my 49cent MFLB bubbler. :)

    you could save a great deal on customs and shipping costs by ordering from verdampftnochmal.de . they only don''t have the pa and the finishing grinder, but they're trying to get all mflb items.

    Just ordered a similar one from DX, sometimes I miss the water filtering in my MFLB. How well it works?

    It actually works ok. I order 5 of them as gifts etc. One of the stems was badly manufactured and clogged. But hey, 49 cents and free shipping!! :)

    I also glued the base to the stem to prevent it from falling off. You can still add water etc by removing the stem.

    You got the idea, except you don't necessarily need more heat, it would just take longer to get the cannabinoids to boil off, which means less available for each puff.

    With smoking, a lot of the cannabinoids would just be degraded before being released or being absorbed into the body due to the extremely hot air surrounding the actives.
