I have been searching on the internet for a while now but cant seem to find a clear cut answer as to when the best time is to harvest a high cbd plant for maximum cbd and the least thc. Can anyone help? I’m growing Super Lemon Haze CBD
I have no idea but I do know that if you leave a normal plant longer CBD increases while THC decreases
I grow high CBD strains for myself. I wait until the trichimes are cloudy/yellow. Some amber. Gives a better effect- more calming than if harvested too early. I’ve never had lab tests to confirm % after harvest though.
I believe CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. I believe it helps with seizure control in certain types of seizures. I do not believe it's a cure-all for everything. So, between all the hype and the "snake-oil" type claims, there are uses where it really does work ... and others where it doesn't.
When it comes to CBD, the store bought stuff is an utter JOKE! Take a look at the potency, or how much actual cbd is in the product. that will make even the most serious person LOL. Grow your own cbd flower and make your own meds/products.
