THC: when is it ready?
What happens if you leave them too long?If we didn’t pick at that point, we would go past peak, the mushroom head would explode, and at the end of the process, we would have too high a percentage of overripe glands. The THC would have converted itself into other cannabinoids, such as CBN and cannabidiol (CBD). Trichomes basically just shrink and evaporate. All your terpinoids evaporate, and your drug evaporates also (cannabis seeds). Sometimes they just fall off. So you don’t want to go past peak, and you don’t want to go early.
