A highly potent form of marijuana, in which the end, smokable product contains no seeds.
Sensimilla does not refer to a particular breed or strain of plant. Any female marijuana plant which is prevented from becoming fertilized will produce flowers without seeds. This contributes to a higher THC content in the harvest because none of the buds have had a chance to turn into seeds. This also contributes to the quality and rarity of Sensimilla product because an unfertilized sensi-yeilding plant is unable to reproduce (until fertilized).
The term “Sensimilla” is broken down to translate in Spanish as “without seeds” (sin semilla), however the term was coined and popularized in the context of marijuana culture by California growing regions. (which have strong Spanish/Mexican cultural influence)
The color of the glands will vary depending on how ripe the THC glands are. They will start out clear, evolve to milky and wind up amber. There are a few exceptions, however, such as occasional outdoor varieties or “Purple Power” plants. The glands of these will be darker, almost appearing purple in color. You will notice that these three stages apply to nearly every variety of marijuana plant. Stage one is harvesting when the glands are clear. This will offer an “up” high that is cerebral, without much effect to the body. This is often considered too early because the THC is not mature enough to pass the psychoactive properties along to the smoker. We recommend you wait until at least 50% of the trichomes have turned milky. Stage two is the creamy or milky stage. Your plant has reached its potential, genetically, now. The trichomes that are still milky will give a combination of a cerebral and physical high at this point. Stage three is the amber stage. This will offer a much more physical stone with a sedative effect. If this is the goal you want, we commend using a hybrid of sativa/indica or using an indica dominant marijuana plant. The high off of a sativa plant is lessened once the glands become amber in many cases. This picture depicts a ripe marijuana plant where over 50% of the glands are milky with a few remaining clear and a few turning amber. Two days after this photograph was taken, the plant was harvested.
• A few weeks: The trichomes will begin to become milky in color.
• Couple more weeks: The trichomes will be completely milky at this time.
• Late flowering stages: From a milky color, the trichomes will turn brown or amber.
Note: The abovementioned timeline is relative thus, is not always true for all strains. The growth period of your plant will still depend on the kind of strain and the growing situations.
Other factors include:
• The plant will eventually cease producing crystals.
• The yellow fan leaves and lower leaves of the plants will start to fall off.
• The smell has reached its peak.
• The bud will no longer grow with the passing days.
Marijuana grown indoors can be harvested in about 7 to 12 weeks after flowering. Indica strains will be fully grown and ready for harvest in 7 to 9 weeks’ time. Sativas may take a little longer to mature. They usually reach full development in 12 weeks.
When you reach the third stage of floral maturity, it is safe to assume that trichomes are fully developed and plants would have reached its optimum weight.
Below are some guiding principles to help you evaluate the ideal harvest window for your particular strain.
• For heavy Indicas, the window of harvest is open when the trichomes are fully-formed but still clear. When smoked this will the user a body high with a lesser narcotic feel.
• For most hybrids, harvest can happen when the trichomes becomes fully-formed and turned cloudy.
trichomes start off clear but as they mature they turn amber or light brown. This are actually the “red hairs” that develop when your bud are fully developed. You’ll know that THC is starting to build up when the membrane around the glands begin to swell and appear like mushrooms. Growers can start their harvest when 50% to 80% of the pistils have turned from white to dark red. Also, plants can be harvested when approximately 50% of the trichomes begin to become amber.
Trichomes (/ˈtraɪkoʊmz/ or /ˈtrɪkoʊmz/), from the Greek τρίχωμα (trichōma) meaning “hair”, are fine outgrowths or appendages on plants, algae, lichens, and certain protists. They are of diverse structure and function. Examples are hairs, glandular hairs, scales, and papillae.
