    Again you are perpetuating the myth or urban legend that plants have their highest level of THC production when their trichomes are amber.

    That is a fallacy that you have fallen for and that you help to mislead others into believing.

    Harvesting when trichomes are milky white does not equate to what you inaccurately referred to as being "early weed." That was a weak attempt to claim validity for your position and nothing more.

    It is only what you inaccurately believe to be true and nothing more.

    It is clear that you are to pigheaded and to ignorant to learn so I will no longer waste my time attempting to educate a dull normal but I most sincerely hope that not to many people are foolish enough to fall for your inaccurate advice/information because those who do not have the same personal preference/taste in what they smoke as you will suffer because of it.

    Firstly, I posted that bit of information as something i had experienced. Citing evidence is something people do when they are trying to learn, or help others to learn.
    I said pure-ish, because, as you the expert should know, Pure landrace sativas are virtually unavailable to the growing public. Even if you purchase a "thai" strain from a seedbank, chances are very very stong that at some point it has been crossed to make it more stable/faster finishing/less prone to staminate growth ect. So if i said "pure" sativa i'm sure you would have jumped all over me and picked that detail to pieces.
    So either way, obviously any real world practical situations are not going to apply to the things you say. Would you say that the high from an indica lasts longer than that of a sativa?



    Fuck you! Don't put words in my mouth.
    The problem with people like yourself is that they're always presuming things about people like myself.

    Did I once claim that pure amber trichomes have the highest level of THC? Or for that matter claim that THC alone is what is responsable for a good high?

    I can agree with you there!
    But you're assuming that increased levels of THC are the end all be all of being high. Go inject some pure THC and see where that gets you

    And my whole point is that there is more to the picture than just the colour of your trichs.


    Again, Fuck You!!!
    You're trying to belittle me to make me seem wrong, but instead you're coming off as defensive and petty.
    I understand just fine, I just feel that you're taking the wrong approach to things and being misleading.

    and what are you doing?
    Maybe you should pay attention to your plants.
    I'm not manufacturing anything. Only sharing my own experiences, rather than copy+pasting straight from conflicting sources and trying to come off as some fucking plant scientist.
    Usually experience humbles people when they realise how much they truly don't know, but it seems like you're pretty convinced you know it all. So good luck with that buddy.
    I'm gonna enjoy a nice bowl of my "degraded garbage". It smells like stawberrys. Interesting that some of the most dynamic terpenoid production happens during the "downslope", making for some real funky, amazing (ohh subjective, how unscientific of me) smelling weed. (or my weed maybe smells that way from all the THCV? :mrgreen: hmm?)

    Peace and happy growing.:peace:

    [SIZE=+1]Trichomes[/SIZE]

    Trichomes are small appendages that look like hairs. They are produced by marijuana, and other plants. Female marijuana plants produce certain trichomes that are a rich source of THC. These trichomes can be found in their largest concentration on the buds. They start out clear, turn a milky color, then turn amber (light brown).

    The trichomes in picture 1 are clear. After the plant has flowered for a few weeks, the trichomes start to turn a milky color (picture 2). After a few more weeks, they will be totally milky in color. In the later stages of flowering, trichomes will turn to a light brown color (picture 3). The amount of time required to get to this point depends on the marijuana strain and the growing conditions.

    In picture 2 you can see the stems have started to turn from a clear color to a milky translucent color. For maximum THC content and a more cerebral and energetic high, harvest your plants when a majority of the trichomes on the plants in your garden are a fully milky translucent color.

    You can wait until most of the trichomes have started to turn amber, but the resulting marijuana will produce more of a sleepy body stone than it would if plants were harvested earlier. The trichome in picture 3 is about 90% amber, with just a trace of the milky translucent color it previously possessed.

    I read The whole thead That's why I posted, He Gave out a ton of accurate information and pics. The original poster said he did not want Couchlock, So why would he Ripen, the shit out Plant, Hairs don't mean nothing, Trichomes Do. Maybe You need to Re-Read between the Lines.

    No, if he doesn't want couch-lock THEN HE NEEDS TO GROW A SATIVA. That's the point to the thread. There are different phenotypes of the cannabis plant and pretending that you can make an Indica plant smoke like a sativa by harvesting early (pre-amber) trichs is whats at issue. If you harvest a plant during the milky white growth phase then you're harvesting a pre-mature plant.

    COPY+PASTE FTW!

    Okay, now stop being smart for a second and think.

    That plant is 4 weeks into 12/12. Granted not all of the trichomes are that far along. And most people arent going to harvest weed that looks like this. But my point with this is that you have to look at the big picture. Stop being so scientific and start being practical.
    I'm not anti knowledge, i just cant stand these "rules" that more often than not lead people down the wrong path.
    Lets cut through the bullshit and spread good information in a way that is not so absoloute. Or at very least explain the growth stages of cannabis making sure to mention that the pistils should have receded back into the bud before you chop. Regardless of trichome colour.

    I have said almost the same thing in so many threads then the kids start flaming me for telling the person they should let their buds be ripe when they harvest,isnt that the whole point grow it till its ripe then pick it just like fruit,if you pick it early its bitter,same concept,some strains turn amber in 4 weeks yet the trichomes are still forming and the plant still growing and boom,they chop that shit down ,that trichome chart is turning everybodys grow fuckybongsmilie:eyesmoke:

    You know heres the worst part of all this. If you're one of the people that love that Sativa mind rush high and you listen to the folks on RIU and they keep pulling out 10 year old charts from the old GrowFAQ then you're going to ruin your Sativa because you're going to harvest it way too early because everyone keeps saying that milky white trichomes are what giives you the fast, energetic high!

    A Sativa is a Sativa, an Indica is an Indica, and a hybrid is a hybrid. Harvesting them pre-mature isn't going to change these facts.

    Wow, haha.

    I agree, if you want to get high smoke a sativa, indica for a stone.

    I will admit that I grow mostly indica and rarely grow a sativa, but i would like everyone to grow two plants of each.

    Harvest one of the sativas when you think the trichomes are ready and the other when the plant is actually ripe

    same with the indica.

    then you will understand the difference.

    sure if you got stuck with an indica and only like a rush.

    harvest early

    get a headache.


    if not sit back and relax people.

    oh and just so you know

    copy and pasting does not make you smarter

    neither does decades of growing


    that is like saying that i have been baking for 50 years, therefore i know what i am talking about

    when in reality you suck shit at baking

    Your all Right, HARVEST no Kind before it's Time! But when The Glands start to rupture or break off it turns into Cannabinol (CBN) Fucking DeadBeat Shit, I Like THC The High, Each Plant has to offer. Your Right a Indica Is Stonier and Sativa Trippy by nature, But if you fuck up a lot of varibles,,,Growth, Handeling,ieg Rupturing the THC glands you will end up with more Garbage (CBN) meaning a Deadbeat Couchlock fucked up lazzy High, No matter Indica or Sativa. Fuck Testing the Leaves,,Test THE BUD,,,I smoke Bud, not Leaves! or are you saying you don't need a Scope?
