Often new pot growers harvest their cannabis plants early because of excitement.
With practice a pot grower will learn the harvest window for specific pot strain for the weed high they're looking for.
Before purchasing pot seeds understand the characteristics of the pot plant. pot seed breeders will provide information on harvest time, pot plant height and yield. Read pot reviews from other pot growers to learn even more about the pot plant you intend to grow.
The window of opportunity to harvest pot buds is somewhat narrow.
Too early or too late creates a different kind of weed high.
Some pot growers will harvest based on this method.
While others will use a magnifying glass.
This method discuss how to use a magnifying glass.
The 30X and 100X lighted magnifier are tools every pot grower who serious about harvest timing should have. They make it easy to monitor the pot plant resin development process. After seeing 400X images of pot bud resin glands, I decided to also buy the 100X magnifier. It supplies a superior view, providing an enhanced perspective of pot plant resin gland condition and development.
I recommend buying the 30X model first.
Then buy the 100X model once you understand how the tool works.
They both allow for a much closer inspection of the clarity, color and condition of pot plant resin glands.
Which should be swollen and unbroken while remaining transparent and slightly amber, if at all, at the peak of ripeness.
When the glandular trichomes are clear with very little, if any coloration, THC levels are at their peak. With CBD and CBN at levels that will not overly influence the THC with their sedative stone.
Some pot growers prefer more overwhelming body stone, allowing the pot plant resin glands to cloud and begin to amber or darken to increase overall cannabinoid content.
Using a 30x or 100x scope allows a pot grower to carefully determine when to harvest their pot plants. There are many pot photos that show pot plant gland resin heads in various states.
