Why is my weed so dank?

Why does my heart race when I smoke? 

There are different strains of Sativa that may cause feelings of anxiety. We suggest trying Indica strains or hybrids that are Indica-dominant. Slowing down and allowing your system to adjust as you smoke may also help. 

When should I harvest?

In short, the only way to really know when your crop is at its peak time for harvest is to view the trichomes (the small hairs on the epidermis of the plant) under a 10x or 30x microscope/420scope. You are looking for a clear or cloudy color, since the plant will continue to mature as it dries. Here is a simplified guide of how to interpret the different colors.

  • 100% Clear - Weak and immature
  • 100% Cloudy - Start of peak harvest
  • 80% Cloudy/20% Amber - Peak harvest :-)
  • 100% Amber - Amber Trichomes are dead or dying and past their prime
