You've figured out how to grow your own marijuana plants, you followed some best practices, and now it's time to harvest. You roll up your sleeves, take a deep breath'¦ and realize you're not totally sure what to do. Do you just pick a bud off and pop it into your favorite bowl? While that may be tempting, you'll need to invest a little more effort and dry your buds before you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. Drying cannabis is an integral step in the harvesting process and is the first stage of the curing process. After you've harvested your bud, drying it out helps it to smell better, reduces harshness when you smoke it, brings out its best flavor, and enhances the potency of the strain's effects.

Times have certainly changed since then, though, because recreational marijuana was legalized in Colorado in 2014, which resulted in an influx of people moving to Pueblo to live affordably and obtain a job in the marijuana industry. However, this turned out to be more of a challenge than people had initially imagined. In this article, we review Pueblo’s marijuana laws and guide you to the best recreational marijuana in the city.
