I dunno, might be on to part of something though. all you have to do is feed some nitrogen to your tomato plant the last couple weeks before you harvest. or some to your mj plants near finish too for big green leaves, not more trichomes, actually more vegetable matter now, so amount of active ingredients is less now per gram right? you like the smell and flavor of ammonia? no prob though,.... with a good old fashion tobaccy like sweat cure the flavor seems to smooth out to normal eventually, burp. eat the weed, you'll taste it without the nasty inhale even. slick trick to test this, ....try it on everything you consume....same results here. isreal grows hydro like all get out. they also taper their nutrients as vegetable harvest approaches, same directions followed I bet. I feed my livestock apples and carrots only toward the end of their life, for the same reasons. If throwing more scoops of pooh at end of flower made it better I'd be doing it for sure. when a new patient asks me "wow, how long did you have to cure this weed to make it so smooth? mehh, harvested a few weeks ago, 125 days of wicked love growing is my answer.
