    I've been hearing mixed ideas on this one. Should I or shouldn't leave my lights off for a couple days before harvest to extract the THC?

    I dont have any real info on the subject, but Iwould like to know more if anyone has any knowledge..thanks

    it helps, but not by much. maybe a total of 1% thc increase overall.

    dude.....hellz yeah you want to turn off the lights for the last 48 hours. cut in the dark, hang in the dark. MUCH increase in potency. you like potent nugs, don't you? <~~~ not really a question.

    it's not that much of an increase uf. one dutch company noted that there was up to a 5&#37; increase. this is not 5% total, but 5% of the thc percentage. ie, if the product is 20% thc, 5% of 20% is 1%, total would be 21%.

    you think it would help to switch them back to 24 hours of light right before harvest? for maybe a like a day or 2?

    what a stupid bitch. trick makes it sound like it's a problem to turn off the lights for a measly 5% increase in THC. get off the short bus. you aren't growing for cannabis, you're growing for THC. all the resin in the world won't get you high if it's minus the goodies. THC is more concentrated at night. remember how light degrades THC and you'll get it. :blsmoke:

    gee, what a fucking dumbass moron.

    considering that MOST of us growers are growing for personal medical stock, i don't think thc content is a problem. go away and let the grown ups talk grown up stuff.

    you need to do a little research yourself there babe, thc doesn't break down as fast as it's produced, and it's a standard to harvest before the lights come on. the technique in question is a dutch founded philosophy, that extra days dark means extra thc.

    it does, but as i was so fucking kind enough to point out, it's not much, and imo, is not worth it.


    asshole.

    uncalled for. If you dont agree with anything that is on here that simply means you have your own opinion. leave the name calling on the playground old boy. otherwise direct your hostile comments on other sites.

    as kind as a poster as kindprincess is, as chairitable, polite, and giving and helpful as she is, and as knowledgable as she is, I think Name-Calling is very un-called for. Having a different opinion is fine, but "name-calling" ???

    and then she gives it back?

    What has happened to our manners?

    if you want me to react with hostility, call me a bitch or a cunt.

    anything esle is water off the duck's back. but, in this case, blatant disregard for truth, and the ambition to have giant cahonas had to be addressed.

    i have nothing personal against any of you. i don't know you guys, and i probably will never meet any of you. uf called me a bitch, i called him an ass.

    and the ironic part is....

    we are both right! :mrgreen: i can be a bitch, and he is deffinitely an ass.

    lotsa luv!

    it will be a never ending debate. if you like, i'll pull up more threads that cover the exact same thing.

    user friendly, you are a dick and a moron. read a little before spouting YOUR ignorance, as you are looking more and more like one that actually DOES ride the special bus. i have harvested after a long dark comparitively, harvesting clones of the exact same strain in the morning before lights come on.

    i see little if any difference at all. why don't you try growing something before attacking someone who is writing a book on these kinds of experiments.

    KP just invite Stickyattic opion,you know she a lab rat. There are so many methods on how to do this,do that or do this who's to say I'am the only one right.Alaska 6mons dark&6mons light,different parts of the world different ways of growing,all kinds of bearables.If you dont live in the same area and doing the same exact same thing who's to say who's right.Calling a person names and belittleing them is not getting you any wheres.That only shows that there are 3 brain cells and they are from a disfunctional nucleus. So pack up that crazy shit and go sell it some place esle. Peace Everybody
