Apologies for asking the same question that many have already asked, but this is my first year and I’d appreciate the collectives opinions.
Info: Lemon Dawg clone, moved into sunlight at 6" height on June 1. Budding began app. July 20. Buds now of good girth (top buds about as thick as a beer can). Hairs turning to red, trichomes moving from clear to opaque and now to amber. To my eye, trichomes began showing a % of amber about 5 days ago. I estimate the current percentage as 10-15% on most buds, but some of the sugar leaves are higher than that. (see photos).
Desire: I’m more interested in an uplifting buzz than couch-lock, and nailing that type of high is more important to me than getting every possible gram of weight out of the plant but risking coma inducing bud… So I’m more into a bit early than hanging on till the very end.
Question: Pick now? My uncertainty based on the fact that the trichomes seem matured to me, but the hairs seem further behind.
Your thoughts appreciated!
