Harvested my ak47 too early I think
Orange hairs were around 85 to 90 percent i think. its serious seeds ak47. I looked at the trichomes through a microscope and they were 1 percent amber. But the whole plant was kinda telling me it was done. looks great packed on alot of juicy bud real quick. after curing for a month the high only lasts for about an hour. its not very potent either. My bagseed mexican sativa hybrid keeps me blasted for two to three hours! did i pull it too early?? soil grow 600 Hps lighting. its not lacking in anything it grew beautifully!
tough to tell without pics just read learn grow

What you should be looking for for a peak harvest:
Cloudy trichomes (as close to 100% as possible).
Finally there is the overall look of the plant, but that is very hard for new growers to get a feel of, and I'd suggest you stick to the three factors I mentioned above.
If you harvested with only 1% amber and (how many % cloudy?) you should have proper bud.
Are you sure you dried and cured the bud properly?
Most people fail in drying & curing.
I'm in the process of moving, no grow at the moment.

i failed miserably until i read uo on it, all my bud smelled great in the tent but dried and smelled like grass. study up.

I have dried some buds super fast super shitty just to check the high. Hung them from the header above the basement stairs on elastics for a day or two. Tasted like shit but still got me fucking ruined.
