I harvest Cloudy, but it's more calming to me than rushing or rushy.

The sativas when clear n' cloudy are long lasting and very clear and feel good. Very little anxiety, more mellow and feelgood.

That might be a little hard... Cell phones have low quality (normally, newer phones have good camera's in them) but, to really see the color, is to get a good magnifying glass of some sort...

I have a 40x jewelers loupe coming in the mail now. I am excited to see the trics that close. I think that I am going to harvest some buds when cloudy, some half and half, and some totally amber all from the same plant to compare the medical effects of each phase of ripeness.

After the flowers are picked and drying/curing do the tricomes continue to turn amber?

Hello to all,
My garden has been unintentionally seeded. All the trichomes seem to be clear. I've been flowering for 8 wks. There are fully matured seeds in the buds.
Question: Will trichomes continue to ripen even though she's completely knocked-up and ready to deliver?
Question: Will I yield more if I continue to wait or are they finished and just wait'n to drop their seed.
Question: I've sampled the clear trichome nugs and they do the trick. This contradicts most of the articles i've read. Is the harvest window different for pollenated plants?
Thanks for your input,
L.S. Reeferseed

the fact that your plants are pollinated bears zero effect on trichomes, their color, or when to harvest ;)

they will continue to turn cloudy and then amber in time with or without seeds.

Thanks. Dang. I was hoping to hear "Yank em and smoke em!". Been 12 wks or so. Gett'n antsy! Do you agree that its alright to harvest buds from the same plant at diff times? Is this benefital to the lower buds or is it an excuse to jump the gun?
Thanks again,

excuse to jump the gun. lol. :lol:

i prefer not to do the multi-harvest thing from a single plant. just my personal opinion. once you cut those first branches off, the plant must re-direct its attention to fixing its wounds and that takes energy away from moving other things along.

although, i can see myself doing the multi-harvest thing quite often in Michigan. i can see it being a great tool to stay within the laws when you grow tress as i normally have. just harvest a couple ounces and let the rest grow. harvest as needed for a couple weeks ;) just may come in handy.

Thanks again. May just. Clear trichomes will take away pains. I'm sure none of you growers know that though. ;)

on the contrary, i am a patient/caregiver. i was in a bad car accident. twisted my 3-5 lumbar up pretty good. anyways no sob story.......... i like sativas. and i have a couple strains that i prefer at about 75% clear - 25% cloudy.

but for when my back pain keeps me up at night, i reach for the indica jar. 75% amber - 25% cloudy. then it's back to sleep ;)

So I guess the theory between the sativas and indicas is a bit of a myth if you follow this guide? I had my brother tell me it made no difference either it was all in the harvest time.

Thanks
