I have wondered this same thing. I bet drolove is right. I think the later harvest turns to more CBD & cbn I could be wrong tho. I’ve tried CBD oil that was also rich in cbn from dispensaries that worked much better for me than just pure CBD oil.. But I suppose it all depends what you are using it for. Best of luck either way.

Actually come to think of it, I remember learning at a seminar here in Colorado that it’s like a 3 stage process. The first stage of later harvest starts by degrading to CBD, then CBN, then CBG if I rememer correctly. I could be wrong on the order of that tho so don’t quote me.

It’s a common misconception that THC degrades to CBD.

CBG converts to THC and. THC degrades to CBN.

There’s not much info online about harvesting CBD plants. CBD crew says their CBD enriched crops take longer from start to finish than normal THC plants. This book about SATIVEX production from GW pharma details harvest dates and light schedules for maximum CBD production. It’s around page 130:

Hi JimBob, How many weeks has the AC/DC been in flower?

Some people harvest when the majority of pistils have withered up and the calyxes swell, some people go by the % of amber trichomes.

I think in that link I posted above it says that the thc will increase during the finals days/week and the cbd remains stable. But I may have just made that up. I did just smoke 2 bombers of mango haze.

I keep reading from different sources that the later I harvest, the more THC will turn into CBD, I have also read the opposite, saying CBD's turn into THC…

    Ok I’m a high thc grower but have friends that specialize in cbd Strains ie: valentine,remedy,harlequin and ac/dc
    The going consensus is harvest at a 50/50 ratio. Then test. One guy with his setup pulls heavier amber than the other. The best test is roughly 17% cbd on the remedy
