sativa harvest

Soil with Fox Farm Nutes
So. this is my first Sativa Grow. I read in one of my books that, in order to take advantage of the Sativa properties, you should harvest before amber. at a few clear and mostly milky white.
Thanks Again
Well. I checked with my scope today. and I’m at mostly milky white now on the colas.
Which particular combination of chemicals is the most desirable is purely a matter of taste and choice, developed over time and with experience. Set and setting also play an important role in determining which type of product is best appreciated.

As the plant matures through its window of harvest its chemistry changes. As the window closes, the more desirable compounds begin breaking down into less desirable ones. Primarily it is THC breaking down in CBNs and CBDs.
I highly recommend that the serious cannabis student acquire a 30X power, illuminated magnifier. These can be found at most local electronics stores, often for under fifteen dollars. With the aid of the magnifier one can learn more about the detail of trichome development and ripeness.
I’ve been doing it all wrong for years.

Sativa harvest
You might not want to choose Sativa-based strains if you’re using a small grow space like this!

Sativa plant in the flowering stage – may grow with lots of stem between sets of leaves
Example of two Sativa plants (Panama strain) grown indoors. Sativa strains produce big and tall plants that can get out of control quickly in a small grow space!
Dried leafy buds of a “pure” Sativa. Only a few decades ago in the USA, this type of cannabis was common! Now you’ll almost never see buds like this unless you grow them yourself.
Long, thin “fingers” on Sativa leaves, compared to Indica leaves which tend to be round and fat.
Sativa strains originated from hotter regions near the equator with long growing seasons, and as a result, they carry a few properties from their family history that can catch an indoor grower by surprise!
This is what the buds of a “true” landrace Sativa looks like – basically all foxtails! Most available “Sativa” strains are actually hybrids with at least a little Indica genes mixed in to help increase bud density and improve overall structure.
Example of a Sativa plant that’s 2 feet tall at only 5 weeks old, and already had to be topped to keep it short! This is a very typical vegetative growth structure for a Sativa plant.
Sativa cannabis strains are typically outdoor strains and originate from regions with long growing seasons. As a result, they can be tough to grow indoors. Learn what to expect, and how to get the most from your indoor-grown Sativa plant!
