If was time. Normally a cannabis plant can be harvested late September or early October, and my plant was no exception. First cut the stems. The cut away all the large and small leaves and only leave the dense tops. Leave these to dry for a month. The result was a storage room with a wall full of marihuana and a bare plant ready for the dumpster.
This weekend I will check if the plants at my parents place are ready. Then I will need to think about what to do with a huge(!) amount of marijuana… anyone interested? The easiest will be to sell everything to wholesalers, in order to avoid any hassle. But it’s also fun to convert everything into tasty cake (or brownies) and by selling these… Oh, I have still a month of drying time to think of something. We shall see.
The plant before harvest:
The plant now, drying in my storage space:
Not all branches are neatly stripped of leaves, because that is a lot of work. Half is done very well and the other half I cut away a bit of the leaves and will clean these up when it they’ve dried. These branches are for experimenting on, and maybe I’ll use them to make some butter.
