    So I've been growing a plant for a little over 2 months and I started the 12/12 cycle about 2 weeks ago, so it's starting to bud and there're crystals but not anywhere near to harvest time. However, I'm not gonna be able to take care of it after a couple of days and so I was wondering what I could do to still make use of the THC that's present? I thought about hash but it seems a little hard, would it be possible to make canna-oil with what I have? Thanks for any ideas.

    Leave it alone! Use the trim, if you like, to make hash but you will need alot more than one plant. The crystals you describe are called trichomes and they do contain thc but like the rest of the plant it takes time mature to a ripe stage. Just be patient it will be worth it. Also I hope you cut clones from that plant before flowering because you will most likely not get very much from one plant. Smoke that is.

    I'd love to leave it alone but the problem is I'm in college and I've gotta go home in a couple of days so I won't be able to take care of it, and I don't know anybody in this city who could take care of it for me, so I've got to do something with it now or kill it.

    Also, do clones need to be cut before flowering? Just wondering.

    Clones can be taken whenever. How long are you going to be out of town for? Leaving it while you're gone isn't an option? If you have to cut it you should do it now. Salvage any buds you can by breaking them off the stems and into small pieces, allow them to dry as long as you can then put them in mason jars and burp daily. The rest of the plant can be used for hash or butter.

    If you can just leave it while you're gone even if you'll be gone for a week or two you should just leave it, figure out a way to water it while you're gone (cheap water globes from wally world or something...) if it does die at least it'll have started to dry while you're away...

    I'm gonna be out of town for 3 weeks, and the electricity is going to be shut off so leaving it isn't an option :/ I don't think there are any buds really, just white hairs with crystals, so I was wondering if I could just make canna-oil with that stuff? Like soak the leaves and everything, would it be good oil or would it be bad cus it's so early?

    Also, since I'd be making oil with the plant, would other plant chemicals or whatever get in the oil? Seeing as it would only have been dead for about a day.

    2 month old immature plant......... You can't put it in a box and take with you? Finish it out at home? Just put it in the trunk of the car........... If you time it right, it could even be in the right light cycle. It should survive in the trunk for a couple hours no problem.

    You are in college and will leave school for 3 weeks. I think your Exams and Lectures should be more iimportant than your hobby.
