Should small buds be trimmed or pruned?

3 weeks till harvest. Should small lower and interior buds be removed in order to max out upper buds?
If so, how do you do it? Snip buds and leave the leaves or cut off whole stem . Are these tiny
buds good for anything like butter.

Yes you can use the all the leafs and sugar leafs and smaller bud to make butter. I’m not going to tell you to trim or not, everyone has their own way of doing things. I for one use everything but the fan leafs, for butter.

This is a matter of choice. Some will say that the shokc effect and subsequest energy spent by the plant to repair itself will stifle any benefit that removing the buds would give you.

Also; I agree that taking buds and leaving the leaves is the best option, if you attempt this method. Good Luck :slight_smile:
