Gas Oven Drying
    #4015577 - 04/05/05 03:11 AM (12 years, 26 days ago)

I have a friend who is wanting to use a gas oven to dry his crop, but in my past experience I had only a small amount and just put them in front of a fan and then into a desiccant. I know that heat can affect potency, but he has a good sized amount, and the gas oven method would probably be more efficient for him, so I was curious if you guys had any advice for using this method to dry them?

Dont do it, just spread them out and fan dry. Then into a desiccant chamber same as you always do.

A very wise investment is a DEHYDRATOR (American Harvest). They have a low setting of 95F & run up to 145F. On the low setting, load, set & forget.

In theory a gas oven could be used reasonably successfully, if it was set on a very low heat so that a steady stream of dry, warm air flowed over the crop. However, in practise, finding the correct heat setting (not too hot and not too cool) would be time consuming, and the risk of spoiling the crop would be high.

Stick to air/desiccant drying.

Test first with a $5 OVEN thermometer. So, it is RIGHT, from the git go, prior to a drying run.
