I don’t know that there is an exact formula for figuring wet to dry weight loss but 150g for 17 weeks is a good start. Now you kinda know based on how much you smoke how often to start germinating seeds so you never run out. They look like healthy buds. Good job

Normally get 1/4 to 1/5 after it dries

Yup. That weight loss hurts your feelings. But solid pull. Looks like grade a smoke. Dont forget ur cure! And like the Hornd One said. It drops to 25-35% of the og weight. More if you have alot of stems n leaves

I always guesstimate a 75% to 80% loss in weight during the drying and curing process… :wink:
Every once in a while , you get a good strain with super dense buds and your weight will be higher… :wink:

Congrats on the harvest
My limited experience has been total wet weight after wet trimming and leaving the buds on branches then divided by 4 and that is what I am getting for my total dry weight after removing buds from branches and jarring them for the cure.
Pretty much what yours did
