After enjoying the fruits of your labors, we all need a place to chill. This is that place. Totally senseless irrelevant banter encouraged.

Grove Bags - Grove Curing Bags...

Post by WhiteHotAfterburner »

Hey all! :wave:

Grove Bags. Grove Curing Bags...

I have never used them. I have read a bunch. I have seen a bunch about them.

They sound and seem like the future of curing.

According to what I have researched, once regularly dried, whatever method you use (as it looks right now, for me, I'm probably going to dry them in the grow space. It's the only space I have any real control over and that is limited! :winky:), you pop them in the appropriately sized Grove Bag, put it or them in a cool dark place and forget it. Your bud will cure in the bag maintaining a RH of 58%-62%.

I bought TerpLoc Half Ounce w/Window, TerpLoc Ounce Opaque and TerpLoc Half Pound w/Window on July 14, 2021. I'm pretty sure I saw somewhere that I should expect them delivered by the 18th. I got them today :woohoo:

When I made my buy they didn't have 1 ounce bags with the window. Once I trust the bags I won't need a window. At this stage I think I will find the window useful as I plan to throw a mini-hygrometer in there with the bud just to keep an eye on things.

And, it just hit me a few hours ago. I actually do have some space that is dark and potentially 'cool' - under the floor. There is barely enough vertical space for a human to get around under there but I 'think' a storage bin with Grove Bags in it 'might' provide a long cure solution.

I read that you can actually put relatively undried Cannabis in the bag but you do have to burp them for a couple to a few days, then seal them up. They come with incorporated Ziplocs but they do recommend Heat Sealing them.

Oldjoints, let me know which ones you'd be interested in, please. I'll send them right out! :tup:

For those interested: https://grovebags.com/

Most of what is on their product page is geared to big-time growers and providers - bulk buyers.

You can opt to "Build-Your-Own Variety Pack". That's what I did.

There is a lot of information on the site, specific to the Grove Bags, and information like Customer Testimonials.

The Grove Bag Story - John Grover (founder):



They just started a Q&A feature on their YT channel.

The first video was posted yesterday:

Grove Bags' Presents TerpLoc "Encyclopedia Bag" Ep1: Heat Seal? Empty Headspace? Lifespan of bags?



I'm not going to do a side-by-side test, I'm barely setup up to possibly getting a harvest into one of the bags at this point.

I don't have a Heat Seal machine and am unlikely to buy one....but, a cheap one goes for about $30, so who knows, I just might! :winky:

I did buy some Half Pound bags in hopes! :winky: :tup:

I haven't done a whole lot today. Still babysitting Sour Belly :frown:. But I think I can get through the Drain, Clean and Refill process tonight - I 'think'.

I hope you're all making it a great night! :tup:

Edit: :pusspass: I can't tell you how many times I've done that! I've always caught it (I'm pretty sure :winky:) - before today! :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

whab liked them so much he bought the company :roflmao:

i have heard and was given a few cure bags never tried
them out. for the belly get yourself some chamomile tea.
My therapist says I am a habitual liar and an attention seeker, therefore nothing I say/write is true and under no circumstances should I be believed nor held accountable for anything I say. all photo's are paintings

WHAB rates Grove Bags as a "Must Buy!" :winky:

I will try the chamomile tea. I have heard about it, I have never tried it. I will. It doesn't happen a lot but, it does happen, and when it does it down-right sucks!

Thanks, Lrus! :tup:

Thanks, Lrus. I appreciate the suggestion. It's on point!

I have started drinking regular tea again. Fitting another beneficial tea in should go easily. I drink Espresso (home pressed) regularly. I don't get out of bed without a Quad Shot Latte (not a joke..it's not hyperbole, folks :winky:). I need the rocket fuel! I'm all about the Drug! :roflmao: The more Caffeine the better! :winky:

Thank you, again, friend!

Good morning! :fly:,

Sorry to be a stick in the mud, but I'm not seeing any benefit. :dunno:

I went to their web site....it's just a gray background, with nothing on it.
Watched both those videos...no information there, just marketing hype.
These prices...
https://www.omegastore.com/supplies-equ ... ow-6084233
...are outrageous for what amounts to plastic bag commercial packaging.
TerpLoc (a trademark, not a patent) technology?...but lets both air and water vapor pass through?

The logic side of my brain is screaming...
If there was anything to these...don't you think the tobacco industry would have already developed such a thing?!?! :pullhair:

Just my observation :dunno:

They sound like those baggies that they pack produce in at the grocer. Remember the Green Ziploc?

Your visit to the site should not look like that, my friend.

I'm on Firefox and this is their home page...

Grove Bag Website 0001 07172021.jpg

...it's jam-packed with information, to include a full explanation of the product.

I hope we can sort this out and you get a fuller picture of what they're about.

Regards,

I have no idea what produce Green Ziplocs are, my friend.

I haven't been in an urban grocery store in decades. I mean maybe it is a chain grocery stores thing that I haven't been to in an extended period :winky:

Site just does not work for me. :dunno:
No worries...found a rather informative thread...
https://support.ilovegrowingmarijuana.c ... cure/63450
Those guys all seem to like them, so looks promising.
Looks like you need a moisture meter, like you use with wood, so that you know that the buds are 10-12% when you bag them.
Are you going to do some in jars to compare?
