Too many strains to tell just by looks. Yours looks great though! Look at the trichomes on the buds to gauge your harvest time. Clear, not ready. Cloudy, peak THC. Amber, sedative/narcotic effect. Most go for a combo of mostly cloudy and a touch of amber.

Plant looks great! The painted nails looks like she is pushing the limits of nutrient uptake. Just at a glance, I see it is still throwing out white pistils. Looks like you are in the middle of the fattening up stage. It will seem agonizingly slow but wait and watch those buds swell.
If you are feeding and if you can, I would cut back a bit on the nitrogen and up the phosphorous and potassium. (less N more P+K)

Good harvest, but how are you going to cure?

Just remember that video is for CBD producing plants.
CBD is at its peak when you have about 10% clear trichomes and no amber at all.
If you are growing for THC which most growers here are, then the criteria is different.
