Questions Test bud?
Just talking to mrs saying she sees ppl on Instagram taking test buds off their plant, dry it and try it. Is this really a thing? And why??
@littleg yer man some people do it mate, but I don't see the point. Its speed dried, not properly ripe, and wont be any where near as good as the final sample if its done right. So don't do it lol. You can take a branch off, and let it dry properly, but that will take 5 days at least, and in that time the plant has repined more. Just wait until harvest time and take it all lol

@littleg have heard of this, practiced it once as I did think the bud had mold 🙄 , found nannas 😭 !! only took it off as i couldn't get close enough physically the plants were scroged in a single door tent so its on me that , poor planning 🤔 . But wouldn't want to practice this as a normal , if left it will no doubt double or triple in size , possibly these other growers are running out and need to justify fekin about ? 🤣
I was thinking by the time your tasting it, might as well give it the last couple of weeks to finish. Personal I have a microscope and watching my techones drooling in anticipation at the mo....
I’m high ass fuck on weed that won’t be ready for another week so I’ll drop my thoughts ...I always take a couple branches early before trichomes begin to amber...the quality of extract you can get is amazing I usually just make edibles, but I know of people that press it or dry freeze it (the highest possible THC before it starts degrading to CBN)...this also helps out the plant because you can open up the canopy and allow lower buds to get a boost of light and airflow
edit: also a 3 day dry and a sesh with a vaporizer can tell you a lot about what to expect
Thanks @nycgrower, something to keep in mind! I’m looking to grow enough to put an amount to edibles, not sure how much thc I’m going to need though as it’ll be mostly for osteoarthritis. But, I do like a bit of THC myself.
@littleg oh buddy another member of the calcification squad , big part of my daily meds have been replaced with edibles and a load of weed 🤣 would love to say we number but a few at percys , nope seems there is a majority here consuming for medical reasons a whole range not just us itis users Few of us make our own so man listen to the marge episode , she does a podcast bite this , or me she explains de carbing for instance in stoner 😆 😉
@woolieback. I did catch it. I’m fortunate to mostly recreational, all day every day! Medicinal mostly for parents. They can’t handle the meds prescribed! Little bit of smoke or an edible in the eve has helped them a lot!!
Heyo @littleg, I always take buds or florets near harvest to check the trichomes so I can use my microscope, but not necessarily for smoke testing. For me to use a loupe or microscope while the buds are on the plant is like trying to catch a fungus gnat in my tent with the fans going. 😎
We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds
