      Wait. From just that one pic it looks like you have at least 2 weeks to go. If you haven’t done it already, you need to get a good magnified view of the trichomes to get a better idea when it’s time to harvest.

      More pics might be helpful.

          Yea. It’s easy to get impatient when you see the hairs of happiness sprouting all over the place, but you got to give her way more time.

          I have only been through 1 grow so far and I agree with SoOrbudgal and wait about a month.

          Yeah you're only half-way through, you got some time still. We love our animals around here, I think there's a couple posts on here dedicated to our fur-babies.

            You definitely have a few weeks or more to go. They look good though. Read up on the main site about when to harvest. Everything you need to know is there.

              To determine when to harvest, you will want to look at the trichomes on the buds. You are looking at the color of the round head of the trichome. General rule of thumb is to harvest when you have 10% amber, 80% milky and 10% clear trichome heads. After a few harvests, you may find your own preference.

              The amber heads are reported to have more of a sedative, body effect. The clear heads have been reported as being more cerebral and energetic high. Either way, you'll want the majority to be milky. These effects can be attributed to the maturation process of cannabinoids within the trichome heads. True they will continue to mature slightly as they hang dry. The milky to amber is a visual representation of the THCa turning into CBNa.

              Do be sure to check the buds and not the leaves. Trichomes on the leaves will mature faster than the buds, so they aren't the most accurate ripeness indicator you can use. However, they can be a good visual indicator as to when you might need to begin your flush if you choose to do so. Using a jewelers loupe is preferred, but many times you can use the camera on your phone to get a close up and clear picture of your trichome heads.
