Finally, after months of preparation, work, and careful maintenance, the time to harvest your marijuana will arrive. Harvesting is not as easy a task as just cutting down your marijuana plants, waiting a week or so for them to dry, and then getting as high as a kite. There are still signs to watch for and critical mistakes to avoid, or you risk nullifying all of your hard work over the preceding months.
The most important of these is getting the timing right. Watching the weather and paying close attention to your marijuana plants will let you know when they are ready for harvest. After a certain point, the potency of marijuana plants will begin to degrade from its peak point. But harvesting too soon can be worse in terms of reducing the potential potency/yield of your plants. Balancing this means understanding the rhythm of the blooming period that your marijuana plants will undergo. If in doubt, it is best to err on the side of patience.

Throughout the flowering period, the end stage of your cannabis crop’s development, the sun’s strength in conjunction with the changing seasons should be your guide. The plant, through its changing appearance, will also send signals that clearly identify when the right time has arrived. Keep an eye on the weather since the conditions on the day you actually cut the plants is very important.
Also make sure there is a plan to cut and move your plants. Do you want to take the whole plant or is it safe to cut them on site. Use seal bags for transportation to avoid strong marijuana odor in your car and make sure the route you take is safe. Let a friend drive in front of you or check the route first. Your drying room should be prepared and ready to use. You’re almost there…
