When to get harvest weight?

So first time grower have first plant in jars for about 5 days now and my second got chopped last night. When is the most accurate time to get harvest weight. Would it be right after drying before the cure or a couple days into cure? Also do any of you know of a thread that explains when you should switch from curing to storage? Thanks you all have been a huge help. I wish I would’ve used this for my entire grow.

I weigh when dried to desired moisture level. Curing should not change the weight by enough to matter.
I don’t want to handle curing buds.
