    Default When is the best time to harvest? Night or Day?

    I have heard night time is best because the THC is at its highest levels it this true?? Any advice would be great..

    To be honest I'm not sure, but I would think right before dawn would be the best. THC production is done at night time, so allowing it the full night would be best. But I don't see how it would be any better than doing it during the day, the THC got produced already. I know that for vegetables/fruits you want to harvest in the early morning, but that is because the vegetables/fruits will be full of juices and firm(they soften during the day because of the sun), but that doesn't really apply to cannabis.

    If I had to give an answer I guess I'd pick night/dawn, but I don't know if there is any real reason one would be better than the other. Google might know.

    I've read that the prime time is pretty much right at dawn, or when your lights come on. If you need to harvest at night for clandestine purposes, by all means, do so. I think the difference is negligible, so pick the best time for you to do the work.

    Is there any scientific explanation as to why THc is highest in the buds when it is dark? They say it is because the plant has fully rested and recovered lost THC that is why it is est to harvest while dark or before dawn. But is there a scientific study how much THC is lost or recovered?

    My research, and sorry about sources because its been awhile, is to harvest right before the sun comes up, so at dawn is the best. The resin production, THC/CBD, recuperates during the night. If you harvest during the day or early evening your plant really won't have less THC/CBD, its more that the terpenoids will suffer and the taste won't be as nice.

    I have a decade of outdoor growing under my belt and I would always harvest between 3am and 6am, definitely before the sun came up.
