Accidently stripped off the skin while pulling sucker branches

I have always just pulled lower branches with my hands, plants are guerilla in the ground, I will use a cutter from now on but stripping the lower sucker branches I accidently some how stripped the skin off all around the base it just pulled off in one go. Did I just accidently girdle my plant cutting off its water supply like stripping bark off a tree?

I've snapped them in half and quickly tied them back together. They survive when you move fast. A little scratch isn't gonna do much.

Did it go all the way around the stem or just a strip on one side? Just a strip is ok. The other way is girdled and the plant will die.

Yup, done that so many times. Tie 'em up, splint 'em stake 'em.

Go home heartbroken. A week later, growing like crazy.

No it won't! Ever heard of air layering? If you do girdle the plant, air layer it. It may just save the plant were it might have been lost otherwise. If in flower of course you will need a mild fert solutions for the "air layered" roots and when erady chop off the top. Feed with a mild solution until the plant has demonstrated it has survived the ordeal. Improvise, adapt and overcome. Never give up

Hey there Switcher! When you air layer you only cut half way through the stem or only scrape one side. You don't girdle it. If it is girdled he could just cut it at the girdle area and try to root the top.

If you strip the bark about 65% of the way around a tree or cannabis plant it will usually die. I've seen grey mold girdle almost completely around a ganja plant. As long as there's a strip of clean green bark the plant doesn't die.
Never, ever, snap off branches by hand. Always use snips, clips, razors, a knife, or whatever. You want a sharp clean cut. You'd think I'd have learned by now but I did the same shit earlier this year. It's clippers only for me.
Anytime you break the skin like that you're at risk of a fungal infection. I've tore the skin in July. Then three months later in flowering after a rain storm had grey mold attack the wound.
Most of the time you're okay though. You can tape or tie it up and it'll heal in a couple days if it's a bad one. Cannabis plants are fast healers and can take a lot of damage.
This is pruning season I'm going to be removing branches the next few days. It's dangerous, wish I didn't have to. Keep an eye on old wounds, broken branches, scrapes and such. Boytritis is always waiting for an opportunity. The stumps of old branches and leaves are places it loves to attack.
