Understand the difference between wet trimming vs dry trimming. Review the different approaches to harvesting a crop of cannabis and the environmental conditions needed to properly dry, process and store cannabis flowers. Learn the importance of collecting all resin glands during this process, and the options for making them into secondary products such as bubble hash or BHO.
