Need help determining if the buds in front of you might be “reggie” weed? Read through the guide below to learn all the telltale signs of unimpressive pot.
Before you’ve engaged your nose (and certainly before your taste buds come into play), one can often spy “reggie” weed by sight. Healthy pot has a number of classic cues, including bright colors. Cannabis that looks yellowed or brown with age is always best avoided. Another thing to look for is trichomes — top-notch weed should be rich with these sticky crystals, while “reggie” is often barren on this front. Reminder: the trichomes are really what make a given bud of flower worth smoking, so anything devoid of this cannabis essential is probably not worth your time.
Cannabis plants after 8 days into flowering
During the stretch the temperature ranged from 21ºC to 28ºC and the humidity level was between 40% and 60%.
Cannabis plants in full bloom (3rd and 4th weeks)
The grower estimated a yield of 25-30 grams per plant, a total of 250-300 grams.
During the harvest, each plant was carefully examined looking for molds. Fortunately, and despite having a relative humidity rather high during the bloom phase, any plant was attacked by fungi. A good ventilation, and the regular use of Trichoderma during the growth stage greatly helped to avoid the risk of mold on the buds, which often start growing in the substrate.
Peak of flowering (5th and 6th weeks)
During this period it?s also important to be patient and to observe the resin glands on the buds, waiting for the ideal moment to harvest our plants. Normally, we will harvest them when most the resin glands are white/milky and only few amber trichomes are present, a sign that THC is starting to degrade into CBN, a cannabinoid which has only 10% of the psychoactive effect of THC.
