If your situation is too dire to be saved by any one of these methods, we want to be the first to say, we are so so sorry to hear about that. It will be greatly missed, but not forgotten. Drying wet weed is a skill that everyone could benefit from! Now that you know why it’s important let's get into exactly how we suggest you try to save your moist weed. Best way to prevent this all however is to invest in solid storage. Something waterproof like this.

Different types of methods are

When drying your weed, there are a handful of different methods to try. In this article, we will be going over our 4 favorites! The brown bag method, rice it up, the paper towel savior, and the table method. All of these methods are going to help you out, but they all require an immense amount of patience. We know that when you find yourself in this situation, it is very stressful. And in any stressful situation patience is very hard to find. But we believe in you. You have got this. Just follow one of the following methods, and everything will work out ok! If you need to prevent yourself from spilling in the first place though, try a container that you only open when you need it!

One very important thing to keep in mind when you are drying out your weed, throughout any of these methods, is to avoid contact with direct heat. If you heat up your weed you will change the chemistry within your weed potentially diminishing its potency when you are finally able to use it. Alright, let's get into it. 

Brown Bag Method
 Brown Bag Method

This method takes the most amount of patience, but over time, it will work. Trust the process and you will be able to enjoy your cannabis once again. Just try not to spill anything on it this time.

  • Put your wet cannabis inside of a brown paper bag, or a paper towel.
  • Place the bag or paper towel in a dark dry room
  • Add a dehumidifier if available
  • Change damp paper towels/bags as needed
  • Wait

Once you run through these steps a couple of times, your weed should be dry and ready to use! If it is still damp, repeat the process until you have your desired dryness. 

Rice It Up
Rice It Up! Method

The rice it up method is the most popular method for electronics and other items like that. However, know that you can definitely use it to dry your cannabis as well. The steps are fairly simple, follow them below. 

  • Grab a mason jar or a cup
  • Fill it a quart way full with rice
  • Place your wet cannabis on top of the rice
  • Pour more rice on top
  • Let sit overnight (more or less time depending on how wet your weed is)

After this process, you will reach into your rice jar and pull out your freshly dry ganja! However, the main downside to this method is that sometimes your ganja will break apart in the rice, making it hard to pull out. But hey, that is better than losing all of your weed! Give it a try, and let us know how it goes.

The paper towel method
Paper Towel Savior

The paper towel savior method is very simple, and straightforward. Follow the steps below to have a chance at saving your moist weed from having to go into the trash can.

  • Wrap your wet weed in a dry paper towel
  • Press gently on the paper towel
  • Move the paper towel around, and replace it as necessary
  • Repeat Until Dry

This method may be the quickest option you have for drying out your weed, but you might end up with some misshapen nugs!

Table top method for drying weed
Table Method 

Lastly, we have the table method. This method is what you use if you are in a pinch. If you are out of rice, bags, and paper towels, try these steps. 

  • Remove weed from all liquid
  • Place weed on a dry table, in a dry room
  • Wait

Yup, that is all you have to do. If you truly have no other option, this might be the only way forward. It is going to take a long time for your weed to dry out. Hours, maybe even days. However, if your weed really is too wet, it might be past saving. And if you find yourself in that situation let us be the first to say that we are so sorry to hear about your loss. 

What Happens If I Use Wet Weed? 

We have been there. Spilling liquid on our weed right as we were about to load a bowl. Your dreams are squashed. Right before a bowl that we wanted more than any other bowl. At that moment, you don’t want to wait and go through any single one of these processes, and we GET THAT! All you want to do at that moment is take your wet weed, put it in your bowl, and smoke it. What would happen if you did that? Well, you don’t have to wonder, we have already done it! So you don’t have to. 

When you put wet weed into your bowl and try and smoke it, the water that has soaked your leaf prevents the flame from doing anything. Your wet weed will just sit there unresponsive to the heat from your flame. Think about it like trying to start a campfire in the rain. It just doesn’t work. We are really sorry to be the bearer of bad news. But that is just how the cookie crumbles. 

Hopefully, you have found some useful information here! We are sorry you got your weed wet, but as you read, it might not be the end of the line for your weed. Try one or more of the methods listed above, and you will be on your way to a nice dry bowl in no time!
