What’s your opinion on giving the marijuana plants 24 to 48 continuous hours of darkness just before harvesting? Some people have suggested that this increases the THC on the plants.
n the 70’s, a University of Mississippi doctor named Carleton Turner showed that THC amounts seemed to differ based on when the marijuana plants were harvested. The potency tended to be increased just prior to dawn. In 2000, Dr. Paul Mahlberg at Indiana University discovered that THC was produced in an extracellular fashion in the center of the glandular membrane (which permitted for daily recycling).
Thus, your theory certainly requires some research, but it might hold true. Turner’s research showed that long dark periods produced the best environment for THC production.
