Cultivar

A contraction of 'cultivated variety,' a variety of plant that has been intentionally created or selected - not naturally occurring.

Cure

Curing is a very important process during the growth of a cannabis plant, which allows for a much higher quality end product. When you move your plant from the drying process to curing at just the right time, one will have more control over the level of moisture of the bud, allowing for the grower to greatly increase it’s flavor, potency and other desired characteristics. If not cured properly, one will experience a harsher inhale or even bad smelling bud.

Cuticle

A thin layer of plant wax (cutin) on the surface of the aboveground parts of cannabis plants.
