    Hi.
    I don't mean "when should I harvest" etc (I have read the FAQs), but rather, what is the earliest one could remove just one bud and consume it? Ie would there be any buzz from a four week old bud? Five weeks? etc... (Obviously not as much as if it had properly matured...)
    Cheers

    it aint worth it really.

    by the time you pick off some early buds, then dry them quickly so u can smoke them, yoiull be smoking a gunner of pre mature, quickly dried bud. it will taste like crap and it will throw a shiitty quicky head buzz. its also going to destroy any chance of a decent yield once u start pluckin those buds early.

    yeah. don't if you ask me.

    i had one plant that was making it the full distance, so i chopped her early and got what i could out of her, it absolutely sucked, chucked most of it away as it was just a waste of my time smoking it.

    you gotta plannnn, if you can't get the time to grow from start to finnish, then wait until you can find that time, instead of wasting your time for a crap product :)

    what plants are they? they could be a kick ass sativa, in which case you'd probably just wasted the last 6 weeks.

    however there are plenty of good indica's around with real short flowering times, so depending on your strain, you should hopefully still get a decent smoke, 7 weeks isn't tooooo bad :) just not if it's a 13 week sativa like :D

    See i originally ordered 7 fem afghan kush ryders from WOS. But they botched the order and i only eneded up with three females of random ass WOS strains that were mispackaged. I don't want to hijack a thread but i can post pics in my profile..........
