Harvesting for BHO?
I'm planning on blasting my whole harvest and just gettin shit over with quickly.
any tips on harvesting for good bho?
My theory involves harvesting sooner than you would if you were growing for the flowers..considering I'm looking to extract the THC rather than smoke it after it's started to turn to CBN...right?
IMO,Id atleast wait for 100p cloudy trics.
Just make sure you leave everything on, no sense on trimming. Other than that there's not really much I can think of that would help. It would also make sense to me to harvest early, they degrade a lot in the whole process again I would also wait until 100percent cloudy as this is when thc is at its peak.. Just my 2 cents
If you do this to an entire harvest I would love to see, I've never done more than an oz or 2
Ostensibly, fresh frozen extraction of clear trichomes should give you the highest THC content, followed by cloudy, and then by amber.
If you do it while they are still all clear won't you lose some? I thought when they were clear they were growing and then they flip to cloudy when the swelling stopped and then slowly amber as they degrade
early harvest makes a samller yield that is a pit cloudy and stays oily very hard to get stable even after a long vac
This is great information. So we're all kind of leaning towards the notion that fully clouded trichomes indicate the best time to harvest for bho.
As to what the post above says about an early harvest is there any information that supports this ?
Not trying to omit any methods or possibilities without hearing them out first!
no info just personal experience

I also just harvest 6 oz ( dried for 10 days) .. i chopped up 4 oz, down to tiny chunks with my hands and scissors for bho.. i would like to further break down my tiny chunks, but I dont want to turn my trim into powder.. i was thinking of throwing my trimmings into a blender, then do little blend pulses...
thats what i have to work with.. and knives and cuting sboards :]
any other suggestions on how i can further break down my buds/trimmings? or is the blender the way to go?
Yield is probably better with older material, but yield of THC was his goal as I understood it, and THCA is ostensibly higher in the younger material.
Early harvest of fresh frozen material also certainly seems like a lower yield, because we are typically comparing it to yield from dried material. If you divide your yield by .2, to reflect moisture content, it will come out closer to the yield from dried material.
We have always ended up with a hard varnish like shatter from fresh frozen, using thin film vacuum purging, at 115F and -29.9" Hg.
