When harvesting, you want to take as much care as possible when handling the buds. The more contact that is made with the bud, the more trichomes are lost. The best way to make sure you get as much of the sticky, icky as possible; is to handle the plant mainly by it’s stems. This allows you to snip the product away from the stem and to keep as many trichomes as possible, in tact. This will help guarantee that your end product will have as much THC and flavor as it can possibly have.
