Defoliation of plant

Is defoilation actually nessasary

No, but if growing indoors it is generally beneficial to remove lower canopy leaves that obstruct light and air from the interior of the plant. Think mold.

I don’t know about anyone else, but it is for me. I can’t not do it. I visit my flowering tent and walk away with a handful of leaves. Polly was lollipopped and defoliated all the way up until harvest.
