    THC is mostly a genetic thing.You can make your plant all it can be with good lighting and nutes but I believe that's all you can do.Maybe I'm wrong.

    If you can't lower humidity in your grow room.Putting them in a dark room with low humidity.The night befor harvest will increase resin and potency.Oregon024

    "All that glitters isn't gold" and all that's "chrystal" isn't THC! Resin and THC are not the same thing! THC gets you high, resin just makes you cough! It's the amount of THC in the resin that matters - not just the amount of resin!

    Yes, keeping them dark for 24 hours or at least harvesting before the lights turn on after the last dark period (only 12 hours dark) is the way to keep any THC from breaking down before harvest. My friend claims that keeping the lights very high off the plants (600 watts at 3 feet) while flowering will also make them flower harder. Says it mimicks the end of season when the sun is offset and not as bright over them. I'll try that this time around.

    Trichomes that have enough THC, yes! Hemp can also produce crystally trichomes that have virtually no THC, yall realise that, right? No THC = no high, it doesn't matter how good it looks.

    I say again - THC and resin are not the same thing!

    Resin is made of lots of things, some of them are Cannabinoids, one of those Cannabinoids is THC - only one of them. Perhaps you have never seen bud that had a good "crystally" look to it, but was bogus smoke (low THC level). Well I've seen it and I'm sure others have too!

    rememberme, during the last week it might help but until then the buds are packing weight and I think light is essential.
    In the last week the buds usually don't swell much but simply rippen.

    i hear the low humidity helps as well as the lights being off for like 24 before harvest. as far as the uvb light im hearing great reviews. uvb is still kind of a new concept to the majority of indoor growers but it does make perfect sense. just be careful with uvb for yourself and for your plants, dont put em too close. and if you can, get 5.0 uvb lights instead of 10.0. the plants supposedly get more beneficial "shit" outta the 5.0's. thats just what i read tho, i havent used em yet but plan to on my next grow.

    I found this online HOPE THIS HELPS!!!!

    1. Water
    Many studies have been carried out on the relationship of water and THC content and all seem to agree that when faced with low water supply and low humidity THC levels are increased.

    2. Light
    These [studies] showed that under conditions of high UV-B (280-315 nm) exposure, cannabis produces significantly greater quantities of THC.

    3. Stress
    I have also come across many tips about wounding your plant to increase THC. "Wounding" refers to maybe bending the stem a little or cutting it with a clean razor. I'm told anything above these wounds, will become stronger when it heals. "What doesnt kill you makes you stronger."
    I dont know the exact numbers, but I know that those who do this, definitely see in increase in crytallized resin, stem and flower growth.

    (+rep if this tip helped anybody)

    If you are wanting more trichomes you can add a procdut by Homboldt county called "snow storm". It will increase your trichomes within a couple days.

    The point of LST-"LOW STRESS" TRAINING, is to increase bud sights which increases yield. It's "LOW STRESS" because stress decreases yield and potency. You want to stress your plants as little as possible for the best yield and potency. Hope that helps
