    Check the trichs, more cloudy for a head high and more amber for body high 👍

    Another way, which isn't often use, but does work. Pick off a small bud from the bottom of the plant, put in ash tray covered with paper towel , for a week to 10 days, then smoke. If it rocks your world, you have another two weeks. Good luck and happy growing.

    If you're struggling to finish them off there are a few tricks you can use which I just recently learned about from this forum. It involves reducing your daily hours of light to mimic 'winter is coming' so they speed up their finishing process. Ive had a Sativa flowering for about 3 decades which Im hoping will fall for this trick!

    i personally go by if its a 10 weeker give it a 11 weeks. also the buds should be rock solid at the top when you touch them.
    the pistils should be around 70-80% brown as well

    i personally believe the microscope thing is too hard.

    Get a usb microscope mate, much easier. The best way to tell if your weed is done is by the trichomes. It's a skill you have to learn

    50/50 is far too much for me. I prefer just a smattering of ambers
