I've heard that keeping pot in a glass jar with an orange peel can increase thc content, therefore making your pot better..

What is the trick(s), if this is possible... perhaps add water... light... temp varations... what is the key to this and what are your experiences?

Welcome to the shroomery!

The orange peel trick is sometimes used top add moister to pot, of course if your pot is too wet, it will mold. It will not affect potency.

"perhaps add water... light... temp varations"

perhaps...no...and no

This is what KILLS buds: LIGHT, HEAT, AIR.
Therefore, to preserve it, you want to take air away, keep it cool, and keep it dark.

Glass lets light in, use something opaque(sp?).
Don't keep it high in your house(up in a cupboard or on a shelf), KEEP IT LOW.
As far keeping it "wet", I don't know about that. I'd just suck all the air out, and leave it be. Don't expect it to last a year or anything like shrooms, though.

I got some ancient bud I tried saving. Mistake. Now, even through a bong it just chokes you and gives you a high that consists of a headache that lasts 2 minutes. Boo.

I have a mini fridge full of jars. Canning jars like this:


I keep bud there after curing it. Bud gets better for the first 6 months or so after its picked, it ages like wine. Slowly using minimal oxygen in a jar (open the jar for a few minutes every day) to age. After that I've had stored buds in jars in the fridge for over a year and they still taste wonderful when I dip into them. You need to make sure they're completly cured before putting away though.

How is one sure that the curing process is finished?

Is keeping it in a fridge essential? Or can i just keep it in a closet?

You'll know when it's finished and if you've done it right because all the fats and terpines seep out of the bud slowly, leaving a cool, smooth smoke.

Curing bud is key. Make sure to burp it, keep a very small amount of clean air in your jars, and put them in the lowest level of your house. I live downstairs and my bud jars are always nice and cool, not so cold that they'll freeze or create condensation or anything.
By the time you hit the bottem of the jars you'll have nice perfect nuggies.

If you want to keep it for years, fill your jar with carbon dioxide by holding dry ice over it. It should keep for a very, very long time with that technique.
