Aside from taste and effect, what are the down sides of harvesting too early?
I harvested one of two plants about a week ago (pineapple express feminized from seed) after 8 weeks in flower. Trichomes were cloudy with a little bit of amber estimated at about 20%. After drying the buds they have a bit of a chlorophyll aroma, so my assumption now is that I likely harvested a bit early. I generally don’t care for the couch-lock effect and prefer a more energetic effect (in particular with this strain), and mostly use a dry-herb vape for flower and make tinctures with trim. Still, I have one more plant (same strain started from seed at the same time) that I want to make sure I hit the “sweet spot” on the harvest.
Questions: any growers experienced with Pineapple Express with advice on flower time? And any other down sides to harvesting too early? Or, down sides to harvesting this strain late (in the event I overcompensate with the second plant)?
