    First time grower here.

    I'm growing CBD Critical Cure. Dispensary where I ordered the seeds says flowering should take 55 to 60 days. I put it to 12/12 cycle about 8 weeks ago (57 days). Buds are looking fine but I don't have a microscope to determine whether or not it's mature enough for harvesting and since I'm growing first time, I don't really know how to look at the pistils. Few of them seem to be white, mostly dark though. My aim is to get as high CBD content as possible.

    Is it ready for harvesting or should I wait for another week?

    whats the strain....the longer you leave it the more sedative it will be.....i dont think flowering time plays a roll in cbd content,but im not an expert

    For whatever reason a lot of seed breeders advertise flowering periods shorter than what is needed. A good rule of thumb is add an extra week or two to the harvest. If its a 56 day strain i would cut it at day 65 or something. Let them go at least one more full week.

    It doesn't look done to me,definitely a couple more weeks, but saying that,your leafs are pale, will they still be on the plant in a week?

    Few days later. Some white pistils still sticking and some of the leaves are definitely a bit pale. Been flushing for 3 times now.

    Still not ready? Am I flushing it right?

    You may have backed off the nutes a little too soon.
    Your bud isn't ready yet.

    The right way to flush is to not flush.

    I think you started flush to early...
    And that's your decision to do so(flush)
    I have 1 Question.
    what was your ppm before you flushed,and what is the ppm of your flush water.
    Did you have a high ppm then drop it to virtually nothing with your flush solution.
    Also with the plant being so late into flower,the plant will focus mainly on the flowers, even if you add nutes now I don't think there will be much revival in those leafs....the plants not interested in them anymore now its life is coming to an end.
    Notice the buds and the small leafs surrounding the buds are nice and green, that because the plant has pulled all the stored nutes out of the leafs and fed the flowers hence the healthy growth around the tops.

    I'm a first time grower. I don't have a way to measure PPM. I use tap water (it's drinkable) and the only thing I measure it's PH and it's always around at 6.0 and 6.5.

    Is it okay to give nutes in the middle of flushing?

    You need to start giving it nutrition again. Stop flushing. You are only drowning your roots. You still have at least two weeks left.

    You need a tds meter to measure ppm.
    Tap water can vary in ppm. In different countries.
    Your ph is fine. But might need adjusting for what phase your in.
    Just introduce nutes again,I wouldn't go o.t.t with them, the leafs won't revive but the buds should still grow.

    Alright, I'll give it some nutes again. Should I give BioBizz Bio Grow along with BioBizz Bio Bloom or just the bloom? I gave some of the grow one at the beginning of the flowering due to stretch but decided to drop it. At week 6. The soil is BioBizz All Mix.

    Thanks for the help!

    very very light feeding please, dont fuck this one up , she looks good. for real, I'd snip a sample and dry it, should only have a few more waterings by the time it dries to smoke.

    Update.

    It's week 10 and the fan leaves are looking bad. They are dying very fast and falling off. Buds are looking nice and green for the most part, still very few white pistils sticking here and there.

    Should I harvest next week? I don't think the plant can take any longer, considering the recommended flowering time is 8-8,5 weeks.
