Given the similarities between hops and cannabis, i was wondering if anybody has ever cured their hops in a similar fashion and if it had similar impacts on the develepment of resin glands? Would it hurt the characteristics of the hops or help? Has anybody ever tried this? By curing i mean once completely dry putting them is a sealed container (jar, tupperware, etc.) and keeping them in a dark place airing the jar out once or twice a day to develop the taste of the resins). Thanks for any replies.

Great question, I asked a similar one a few months back, and didn't really get a clear cut answer. All that was explained is that drying hops is curing them. But I'm picking up what you are putting down!
