I have had excellent results with this method as just a "different flavor/smoke for high quality -
high chlorophyll (just harvested) buds/leaf.
I use a ten gallon aquarium, water set at a constant 75 degrees, my container is a gallon jar, (the kind that resteraunt/bar olives ship in) with
w/ 10-15 ice-pick holes punched in lid. Place fresh/wet buds in jar (do not pack tight) -
weigh or wire/tie down jar so the lid is just above the water level. The buds will sweat cure, removing
most/all of the chlorophyll leaving you with a very smooth smoke, potentially capable of taking a
rather huge bong hit without blowing/coughing out smoke too soon I had a sative stain I cured this
way, It had a very rich, almost bitter chocolate flavor (reminded me of the 70's Panama Red)
It usually takes around 84-96 hours for best cure, depending on room enviroment It's an excellent way
for just a different flavor/smoke and it does not degrade in any way, maybe potentuates a little.
Give it a shot you'll be surprised at how smooth a flavor it takes on.
Now if you're one of those people that loves the taste of chlorophyll...

no way those fresh buds would be ready to smoke after 72 hours in an environment like that..is that like a pre-cure or pre-dry treatment that one would use and then continue with the drying process?. I only ask because it takes me a lot longer to dry my stuff in an open tray. It seems that something closed up in a jar would take much longer to dry.

It's actually around 96 hours (I was thinking 4 days, just typed down the wrong number) I edit'ed, but it has
worked within 72 hours for skinnier buds (Jamaican Sinse'), you could see the inside of the jar stop sweating after 3 days, the house being cooler (wintertime) might have had somethin' to do w/ it. It actually seemed to speed up the drying process. Stand buds on end, leave room (between) for air circulation Give it a try you'll be pleasantly
surprised.

There's no shortcut to properly drying and then curing your buds.
