    Playing with my new microscope

    I got a cheap USB microscope for christmas but I've been pretty busy so I haven't had much chance to play with it. I decided to check out some dispensary stuff I have on hand. I might keep this thread running and put random microscope shots in it from time to time. Everyone else with a scope please feel free to share some shots here as well!

    Super Sour Diesel - no amber in sight, not even 50% milky (I like this stuff a lot)

      Does the Green Crack look like it’s been around awhile? By the picture it looks like that bud has taken a few tumbles. The Sour Diesel looks a bit fresher but I’m not surprised that it’s less than 50% milky. I feel like dispensaries really push the daytime Sativa/ night time Indica line even though 98% of the strains are hybrids. Can’t have a Sativa with 20-30% amber if they’re selling it as uplifting.
      Failure is an opportunity for improvement!!

        That's awesome man! I love mine! Which one did you get?

        I've only used mine a few times, more screwing around than anything, but I'll be checking my plants shortly. Glad you're having fun with it.

        Yeah looks like that green cracks been knocked around and lost a lot of crystal. So much LP product is tumble trimmed and automated, or just gets roughed up along the way.

          I got the Plugabe 2.0. I'm trying to get used to it so I could take some decent trichome shots soon. Yeah the Green Crack looks a bit beat.

        This confirms something I have suspected, sad. I wonder if the dif tween the 2 is one was hand trimmed and the other on machine? Or is it the grower, old age etc.? Also how buds from elsewhere compare.
        I have wonder how much better it could be if they let it go to near 100% milky?

          I have and just did harvest full milky indica dominant strain, had few amber but not as much as I would normally let it go longer but we needed to harvest it for space reasons and smoking needs. It's turning into a very nice smoke not at all racy thank goodness. That one batch of clear and half milky was a bummer gave it away to a "squeezer" let them press it.

        I'm amazed at how early and premature a lot of the LP Stuff from the Canadian government I've seen. Turnaround time must be important, most of it is machine trimmed, or just terribly done roughly by hand. In the last year and few months, I've yet to be blown away, or even surprised by fresh weed coming from the OCS and canadian government.

          I need to play with mine a little bit & see if it's user error or truly a piece of shit.... I too got a cheapo from Amazon & couldn't see a damn thing through it.

            Did you remove the cap? Adjust focus? make sure the light is on if included?

              Lol lens cap. No it doesn't have one, neither light helps & the focus don't change no matter how far I twist either way.

              These are all taken with a USB microscope, not the little handheld. I have one of those too and I can see stuff with it but I have to put it right up to the angled opening and have the extendable lens collapsed.

              Ahhh.... yeah I got the collapsible one. 😑

            Those are some nice pics. I ordered one the other day from Amazon, USB style and I had zero luck getting the apps to recognize the microscope being plugged in. I returned it and got the wireless one that connects through WiFi. Pretty freaking awesome I must say. Really impressed with how well it functions and it was on sale too, only paid like $30.

              This is more dispensary bud. I can't get many trichomes in focus at one time but it's loaded.

                They are mostly clear to partly milky, not alot of full clouds or amber, I probably would have let it go a few more days but I'm not trying to make money. I do like a speedy buzz though for most of the day so it's been pretty good to me. It's called Cobra Commander. I think it was bred by a local as I can't find anything online other than the actual testing certs which is odd but very cool imo. https://www.okbudprocessors.com/medi...aCommander.pdf

              Wow, those Digital Microscopes are neat! I'd like to get one, but I just ordered a T5 light. I better wait a while, at least until my wife's "Crab Medicine" is ready to smoke.
