Tip # 1 : Skip spending a ton of money on this machine and get a Harvest Right pharmaceutical freeze dryer if you want to do this at home . Harvest Right equipment usually runs about three thousand , but it will quickly pay for itself . It ’ s about the size of a wine refrigerator .
Tip # 2 : Place the flower into a deep freezer for about two days before drying . The longer it ’ s in the freezer , the better .
Tip # 3 : Don ’ t run the dryer for the entire 24-hour cycle . You only need it for about four hours and twenty minutes . Using traditional methods , we can still cure it , and it will still smell and feel like a flower .

Tip # 4 : Temperature is very critical . Set the temperature to 32 degrees when drying cannabis . You will need to lower the drying temperatures from the preset temperatures the machine comes with by navigating into the temperature setting .
In general , the cryo-curing dry method will be a handy tool for the consumer , but it is not the best method for someone who is just starting out . If the operator wants to maintain the smell and flavor of terpenes , then they must learn at what temperature terpenes degrade . The method will require some fine-tuning but is also one that will be fun to discover . It is recommended that you look at all your options and find out what size machine is needed for your operation since you will need expensive equipment . If you are worried about the flowers drying too quickly , decrease the dryer time . If they are not dry enough , add more time . The last thing you want to remember is that you should not use your finest material on your first trail run . Play it safe — use materials that are not likely to be missed from your prime inventory so when mistakes occur , you won ’ t have lost your best flower .
