Agree you've got ripening time left.

Also agree, you have mites. Damage all over your leaves, and webbing at the bottom left hand of the second photo.

you can make an easy mite killer 50/50 water and grain alcohol in a sprayer the alcohol kills on contact and should evaporate, spray at night if possible, you can also treat systematically by drowning soil in spinosad(spelling?) but thats usually just a preventive. I've had them they suck

Just keep in mind that if you kill the mites, you now have dead mites on your buds, and you do NOT want to smoke them. I'm not sure of any ill health effects, but it will probably make you cough and want to vomit. I've smoked mites, it's no good, that's a one and done kind of situation. You could make an extract though, and probably be alright.

But I'm a stickler, and if it were my grow, I'd cut out every piece of plant that looks like it might have mites, and get it out of that space, and then clean the space. If you can salvage the grow, go for it, but keep an eye out for more mite damage, and don't introduce ANY new plants to your house until you've finished the grow, cleaned the space, and removed any possible vector of transmission.

Good luck.

Citric acid is your friend. Alcohol works as well. Just don't spray any chemical or oil based product on your plants at this stage.
i wont spray anything but cold water and everclear i have the luxury of pulling my plants out of the room and checking them leaf by leaf under a scope thanks for your input

Is this another troll? A POUND of GOOD smoke? It's mite infested! And if that pic is your whole grow, you don't have a dry pound, not even with the mite corpses.
