Thanks for the input folks, maybe I should have started a poll, lol. I harvested a couple of lower buds that were the first pollinated a week ago, the seeds were ripe and the calyxes were splitting, I was afraid the seeds were going to drop. I put the small buds on a shelf in my kitchen to dry and the whole house stunk.
The herb was dry enough so I rolled a pinner last night and after a couple of hits I can say I’m glad I took a clone. Pine/hash/lemon taste with a very up high and a slight touch of warm body. I really didn’t pay much attention to the trichs since I was after the seed but when I looked at the plant today they were cloudy.
I guess it’s kind of tough to judge in this scenario because I’m looking for mature seeds. Some of the bud may end up a little over done since I want to make sure the seeds are ripe. At least what I smoked was very good and not the other way around. I will have the clone to play with.
“Pollinated bud seems to produce more resin than an unpollinated bud”…interesting. I won’t be able to tell with this plant. When making seeds by pollinating only selected branches on a plant, I never bothered to check…usually the plants were very resinous to begin with.
Sounds like an experiment. Take 2 clones of the same plant and grow identically. Put into flower and completely dust one when ready. When plants are ripe, harvest and compare.
