hey tall'...the trichomes change, from clear heads, to foggy/milky heads, to amber heads when ripening. You will need a loupe/magnification to see them clearly. I consider them "ripe" when approximatly 30-50% are amber.

80% is much better, then the thc-level is @ his highest point and will taste the best, if you cure it well.

Amber trikes are the first indication of thc degredation. "IMHO" 80% would be a bit over-ripe, but you should experiment. Try some at 20%, some at 50% and some at 80%+. See what you prefer.
The earlier you harvest, the more "heady" the high, the longer you wait, the more "body" stone. Depends on personal preferences.
