MyHerbsNow Dryer Review Tried and Tested 3x

Whats going on guys! I want to post this for everyone who has or had trouble drying in the past. I will admit that i suck at hang drying. I live in south Ga and its expensive having to run an AC unit 24/7. I have my grow room environment dialed in to a constant 70-78F and RH fluctuates between 45-55%. I bought a 2x2x4 grow tent to specifically use for drying and i was going to hook a line from my AC vent on the wall and split it into the tent and the room. Well tried this with some ducting from home depot and the amount of air coming out slowed downed when i split it and the room wasn’t cooling correctly and the RH was rising. so in short.. I decided to spend $160 on a unit that is suppose to dry my flower in the room i’m already growing in within 4 days. that unit is the MyherbsNow dryer. I will start off with saying this unit can hold about 6+ oz of dried herb. each tray can hold 1.25 oz (dried) and it comes with 6 and more can be purchased. I was indeed skeptical when I first got it, but looking over IG and others that have been using it It seemed like a good deal. I haven’t paid for any testing since i’m in prohibition land. but on IG Growweedeasy has done and paid for 2 separate tests showing side by side the terpene profile between hang dry and herb dryer. the herb dryer does 100% preserve the terpenes and flavors of the flower. I grew 2 harvests before and even posted to DGC last year asking about “Why does my flower taste bad” I thought i just couldn’t grow good weed… WRONG… I couldn’t dry it right. After getting the dryer a few months ago I have used it 3 times and one of those times was to dry bubble hash. I was able to put the dryer on a shelf in my closet and push a button its time to get drying. Scott (Myherbsnow) is amazing guy and i think it would be awesome to have him on the show to explain it. from my 3 harvests I’ve had CBD Crack by Fastbuds, Critical Blue auto by Expert Seeds and Critical Auto. each one of these has tasted the best i have ever grown. I will give it up to the DGC for sure for helping me get my grow established and then to myherbs for helping with the dry. If any of the growers out there have trouble drying or don’t like waiting 7-10 days to get some medicine then this is for you. I hope this helps someone out like it did me and I think this counts as a Grow Hack?

    That looks about like an inch to an inch and a half space between trays. Is their a way to make it larger, as to dry bigger buds in it? Thanks for the info and I would certainly say, could easily be a grow hack for newer growers while they learn to hang dry properly. The thing I see people that ruins drying is trying to rush it. You can’t rush drying or your buds will taste horrible, as you well know. I let my branches get, what seems to most people that are not growers, too dry. But once you drop those in the jar, they get moist again after a few days sitting in a jar. Also, make sure you only fill the jar 65-75% full of buds, as to allow air exchange in the cure jar. That also makes a huge difference here in humid Oklahoma on my nugs as well. Hope this helps. Stay lifted

    Thanks for the reply. The great thing is that the trays have the middle insert that comes out so if you want to have your buds vertical you can do that. So I do agree 100% that I have rushed my previous hang dry. The one thing new growers will have to notice with the herbsnow dryer is that it dries it up quick and I first thought I was over drying, but you have to go by the when the stems snap. Until it becomes legal where i live ill stick with the herbsnow for small personal grows. This is a great hack for me, living in prohibition land and growing my own medicine that sometimes i can’t wait 10 days after harvest. Soon i will have it to where ive grown enough and I have a plethora of herb and can slow down and sit on my product.
    Stay irie bro thanks again for comment

    Hey, Rasta_k_

    Glad that dryer is working out for you. I live in Florida and have the same issues as you, with even higher humidity. Trying to get a room to optimal temp/RH is difficult and can be costly. I also have 2 of the MyHerbsNow dryers, and I have a had great success as well.

    A couple questions for you to compare notes:

    1. What is the room’s temp/RH where you have the dryer placed and how long are you finding you dry for?
    2. I am going to run my first batch of bubble hash this week…brand new to it. I’m curious about the method you used to dry the bubble hash in the dryer. Did you chop it up finely before placing it in the dryer? How were the results?

    Also, something I had to do, living in Prohibition Land, is get another fan and carbon filter because my house smells like a dispensary when it’s drying. It was overwhelming…and got be a little scared. This time around, I’m going to place the dryers in a 2×2 tent with the filter scrubbing the air.

    Thanks

      A couple questions for you to compare notes:

      1. What is the room’s temp/RH where you have the dryer placed and how long are you finding you dry for? The dryer sits on a desk with a carbon filter sitting behind it and a humidifier on the floor below it. I keep the room normally 70-74F and RH 48-53% using the central AC it helps suck up the humidity but in the summer with AC running all day the RH will drop sometimes below 40% and thats when i have my humidifier plugged into a sensor to come on when it dips below 42%. The dry time depends on a lot of factors too though. how big are stems? how much material did you leave on the buds? I normally on full 5 trays (6-8oz) will take 90hrs-106hrs. i wait until the stem snaps and the buds fall of the branches easily.

      2. I am going to run my first batch of bubble hash this week…brand new to it. I’m curious about the method you used to dry the bubble hash in the dryer. Did you chop it up finely before placing it in the dryer? How were the results?
      After I made the bubble hash i scraped into a pile and let it dry out on the 25micron sieve with a papertowel over and under it. i left that just on a shelf (dark and cool) over night and the next day I was able to form into shape and placed into herb dryer for 36hrs, after that i used a fine serrated blade and chopped it up and then chopped up finer with razor and card. placed on parchment paper and placed back in dryer for 48hrs. checking every 12-14hrs and mixing up with the card. so all in all it takes close to 90hrs for drying with the dryer versus 10 plus days other ways. at the point out the dryer it was smokable and got me ripped.. but i placed into a small glass dab jar and letting it “cure”.
