    I’ve read articles that say get it early and I’ve seen articles that say let it get mostly amber before harvesting to increase the CBD content...is there a definitive answer to this question...my Nurse Larry x Valentine cross is mostly cloudy right now but I’m thinking of waiting a bit longer....The other plants are not quite there yet but fast approaching...the macro lens I use for my phone camera is not the best and I’m a bit disappointing in the pics I’m getting, sorry...

    Oh my goodness she is lovely. For CBD, i recommend about 20 -30 % amber. I think if it is going into the wonderful medical tinctures, they should be for rest and healing. I haven't tried a sativa cbd tincture, i may this grow. Do you think you would take a tincture during the day? I don't know. If you were going for a speedy tincture then take um cloudy.

    This high cbd cannabis is a rarity at the dispensary and spendy. really. I think it is the best medicine ever.

    Thanks Rose. Today is 8 weeks in flower so maybe another week. I don’t see any amber yet and this one is about the most ripe of any on these plants...I’m not sure what I’m gonna do with this...Smoke a little and see what happens, then decide how best to use it...my wife and I seem to like ingesting as th result seems a little more predictable and manageable.
