well let me start with number of weeks most bud thickening starts around 4-5 weeks into flower and continues until about 7 weeks depending on strain so they have around 3 weeks of fattening yet I wouldn’t be overly worried.
I do have to ask what you are using for lights since light intensity factors greatly


I’m seeing lot of brown to red hairs and very sticky when touched
I’ve lightly brushed my arm and it got tacky

these are not bad things I will say your ppm is pretty high compared to what I run they may like a little lower 1000-1100 you may actually be burning your ladies which is why they seem to be ripening already I would lower ppm and see if you trigger some fresh growth

I was thinking it may have something to do with it but not about to lower it using RO water 12 ppm PH 7.0 from filter i adjust it to 5.9 to 6.0
tried using less nutrients or just RO water PH 5.9 to 6.0
any thoughts how to lower the ppm ?

checked my math I’m in the last 3 weeks till harvest I’ll let ya know
how it came out thanks
