    i only have 2 small plants going into bud(3-4 ft. tall) don't think they'll produce much so i won't feel bad about pulling them-- and a couplea fist fulls of female leaves after trimming off larger plant in flower (mostly fan leaves)....would it be worthwhile to cook anything with that ,and can i throw the stalk in the pan? I'm new to edibles never cooked never ingested so any info would help

    Bud and sugarleaf trim works best. Not sure the ratio of bud to butter. Maybe half an oz to a stick of butter. Best to decarb first. Then cook for several hours. At least 3. Filter through cheesecloth. Squeeze out as much as you can. Leave in the fridge till solid.

    Use a regular sieve. And agreed. Don't use fan leaves. Those have nothing of use to you.

    If you want free seeds from one run. Keep some pollen from one of your males. Then chuck it on a female you like. Sure you won't get too much usable bud. But you'll have a whole bunch of seeds that cost nothing.

    Depends what you mean by worth it?
    You can have worth it as in one's that are done in two months. Or worth it as in ones that yield like photos.

    I've never had one myself. But in all honesty. It depends what you consider worth it.

    If say you had the room to run 4 60 day wonders. You could drop a new seed every two weeks and by the time that last pot is seeded. Your first one should be ready to come out. By the time that cycle is running smoothly. You could be pulling roughly an Oz a fortnight.

    If my understanding is correct that 60DW runs for roughly 60 days from seed to harvest.

    I'm not sure about any of the others. Over only vaguely looked into them.

    That's too hard to answer. Too many variables. Like soil quality. General rh and temps. Strain and phenotype differences. And amount of light received all play a part.

    Let it get closer to finished before you chop it. Otherwise you're wasting all that potential.

    As far as yields go. You could get half an Oz. Or you could even get a pound. It depends on too many variables to tell you even a guesstimate. Even less without a visual of the plant.

    When I cook with weed I usualy use weed butter or cannbutter. I think is the best way to cook.
    24grs to 40grs is what it takes to have a good quality weed butter
