    Whenever a lens is used extremely close the depth of field(in focus part) of the photo is very thin. Think of only the thickness of a sheet of paper as being in focus. I used a Nikon dslr, a 90 mm macro lens, at least 40 photos taken at different focus depths and Zerene focus stacking software. Zerene combined the infocus part of each photo to produce the photo. Maybe someday we will have a tiny little camera that will take a closeup photo like this in one quick click but sadly not today.

    Hey Ya'll,
    Can anyone tell me what concentration H2O2 / Water solution to dip trimmed buds into, to kill possible mold spores, before dipping into rinse water? High pressure shower spray no longer an option within a week to harvest, where that pressure can break off Tric' mushroom heads.

    Please advise.

    Im at the end of flowering and trichomes are around 0-15% amber. I would like to destroy the THC (only with 1 plant or 1/2 plant) cause I can't stand high THC strains anymore. I know people will say that "You should pick low THC strain from the get go..." and I have done it. I have a CBD strains also that is ready in few weeks but it would be nice to get as much CBN as possible from those THC strains.

    Is there any negative effects if I let my girls flower for let's say 4 more weeks to get more CBN? What should I take in consideration when doing something like this? This is my first time trying to harvest as much CBN as possible so I have no idea whats going to happen in the next couple of weeks.

    Im already flushing the plants (have been the last 7-10 days). Is this a mistake?

    I really appreciate all tips from you guys.

    Ps. I bought this Japanese microscope from 70's-80's for 10€ (9USD) and it's fucking amazing. I tried 2 different modern pocket micros before this and you can't even compare these two. If you are after a good microscope you should check these old ones from a second hand store.

    i don't know what to tell you, i've never done that, i always understood that cbd and cbn are different things, and that there wasn't much value to cbn.
    i understand thats not necessarilly true, but all i really know about it is that it comes from thc breaking down, so i guess if you want more of it, let them go a while, the more amber trichs you see, the more cbn you're going to get

    CBD and CBN are definitely different things but also little same. CBD in my opinion just calms you down and counteracts THC a little. I heard that 5mg of CBN is as strong as 10mg Diazepam so you could imagine that it would also counteract thc, make the high little bit mellower and less trippy.

    It really sucks that THC makes me anxious now days and I have to play with this stuff but theres nothing I can do. I have an addictive personality and think weed is the wisest choice if you "need" to consume some shit everyday...

    Age and light will degrade it getting rid of more of that nasty thc. You could also vape the thc off. Get a good vape like an ExtremeQ, invite some people over and save all of their leftover vape poooo...

    Also, I found you can't store thc in a vape balloon very long or it it looses its kick. Maybe balloon vape stored in a balloon for a few hours first would give you what you are looking for. :-)

    at least 2 or 3 more weeks, too many white pistils, and i like to see the trichs on the leaves start to get a reddish tinge, means the ones on calyxes are getting close

    they both look pretty well along, but i'd say at least two weeks, maybe three for the hash plant. a few too many fresh looking pistils, don't like they're quite tight enough
