It is the process of extracting unwanted chlorophyll from dried marijuana buds so it does not overpower the flavor and odor of the weed. The process involves removing the buds from their stems and placing them in a sealed container such as a glass jar. During the curing process, the chlorophyll in the leaves turns to sugar enhancing the taste and aroma of the marijuana. It also gives the trichomes (the sticky glands on the leaves and buds) a chance to ripen.
