Did I think that the plant was ready for harvest?
Marina es muy bueno! That quick-dry method sure does make for yucky-smelling weed, although it wasn’t as harsh as I thought it would be. But it worked well enough to do a quick sample on the mid-level bud that I snipped yesterday.
The weed gave me a decent but unexpected, long-lasting, numbing (and welcoming!) body stone, but it didn’t make me sleepy, and I was clear-headed and functional, unlike the other weed that I’ve grown.
The Fast Buds Mexican Airlines strain effects description says that it’s a clear-headed high, but little else in the description of the strain’s effects entirely matches my experience (part of it could be me/how it affects me), which isn’t a bad thing, just different and still quite beneficial/useful. Below, in my screen shot, it says no body stone, so I wasn’t expecting a body high/stone, BUT that could be that I waited longer to harvest. BUT that’s good too, as Marina will be great when I need body chillin’ and yet be functional. Next time, I’ll be able to read her trichomes better and take a test bud earlier on.
I don’t pay much attention to strain description time tables for harvest, but Fast Buds says it’s ready in 9-10 weeks, which seems pretty accurate, for mine, anyway. I just checked their website again - now they say 10 weeks, lol, and that it’s 65% Sativa, when it used to say 75% Sativa, ha! Anyway, Marina sprouted 11 weeks and three days ago. Her trichomes changed a lot over the past few days, which can happen.
Anyway, I’m pleased!
@Se7en , since you like Fast Buds, here is my initial experience of their Mexican Airlines.
