Baking Soda On Weed Buds: Preparing Cannabis Washing Solution To Get Rid Of Dirt
Cannabis should be washed just like fruits and vegetables. Your best bet is to wash all the cannabis you just bought or harvested. This process removes small dirt, dust, and hair from cannabis because you inhale all this when you smoke it. Let’s find out how to properly wash magic cannabis to get cleaner smoke. Don’t worry, there is no baking soda on weed after these manipulations, and it doesn’t reduce the effect.
Why Do You Need to Wash Weed?
Washing the Harvested Crop
Firstly, if you grow cannabis at home, then there is a lot of dust in the growth box, and you definitely don’t want to smoke it. No dust remains after rinsing.
Secondly, at the end of the flowering of the bush, imperceptible fungi may appear on it. If you don’t wash your cannabis, it can have disastrous consequences like poisoning..
It is also necessary to knock off the dead crystals when you do bud washing in lemon juice and baking soda solution. Living crystals, which contain THC, have an oil base and cannot be knocked down with water, and those crystals that have already begun to die off don’t contain any active THC, so there is no harm in removing them.
Can you smoke weed after washing in a baking soda solution? Of course, it does not harm your health in any way.
Washing Before Harvest
Keep in mind that there is another type of cannabis flushing. The fact is that the bush absorbs nitrates from the soil and fertilizers, which can be dangerous to your body.
How to protect your body from poisoning? You probably already guessed it. Yes, the correct answer is good flushing before harvesting. Nitrates dissolve well in water, which means that they are excreted along with this water. Accordingly, if this procedure is carried out in advance, the soil would get rid of excess nitrate, and the bush has time to “eat” all the accumulated reserves of nitrates, and you can get a real ECO product.
The essence of such flushing is to water the plant with a large amount of clean water, which, passing through the substrate and flowing out through the drainage holes, flushes out any substances contained in the soil.
What You Need for Washing
- Of course, the cannabis itself. It is best to have it on a branch;
- 3 large containers for solutions;
- Baking soda packing;
- Lemon juice;
- Hydrogen peroxide;
- Water and ice (optional);
- A clean cloth or sponge.
A small note: you can rinse in hydrogen peroxide and baking soda with lemon juice. It is impossible to mix all three components in one container. Take two separate containers and one of them would contain hydrogen peroxide and the other – baking soda with lemon juice. Someone rinses in only one of these solutions, and then rinses with water, but if fungus has formed on your cannabis, then it is best to rinse in a solution with peroxide and in a solution with baking soda with lemon juice. Baking soda is also great for getting rid of powdery mildew on cannabis leaves and buds.
Also, you need to know that a high concentration of baking soda makes water more acidic and if you overdo it, it can negatively affect the quality of marijuana. As a result, you can get a spoiled product, smoking, which would harm your lungs and ruin all the taste. In order to properly rinse the weed in the solution of baking soda and lemon, follow our step-by-step instructions.
How to Wash Cannabis Properly?
- First, trim excess leaves so that only buds remain on the cannabis sprig. This can shorten the washing time and make it more thorough.
- Prepare both rinsing solutions:
- For the first 3-gallon solution, pour 200 ml of peroxide. There is no exact bud wash formula for how much hydrogen peroxide per amount of water you need.
- For the second baking soda and lemon juice solution, add 3 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to 3 gallons of water. Stir well.
- Dip the cannabis in the hydrogen peroxide solution and shake the spring gently. You can see how much dirt is floating on the surface of the water. Before removing the cannabis from the solution, be sure to take a clean cloth or sponge and wipe the dirt off the surface of the water.
- Now dip in the baking soda solution with lemon juice. Thoroughly rinse the cannabis, and if you are worried that the crystals may crumble, take a bag from a special material and dip it into a container with a solution.
- To avoid baking soda on weed buds, pull out the cannabis from the last solution and dip it into plain water. Sometimes they are immersed in ice water, which is done in order to play it safe and not to knock down all the crystals. Dip into water several times and remove.
- In order to dry well, hang baking soda weeds in a dark, cool place with a temperature of 64.4–68 degrees Fahrenheit.
