if theirs no main stem and you've got a tall or spreading plant that needs restricting have you thought about tying it down.?

or at least tying down the branches that look like they will develop into main stems through flower

The lethal dose ratio (LD-50) for cannabis is estimated to be around 1:20,000 to 1:40,000 which means you have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much cannabis as is contained in one cannabis joint to induce death. This means you would have to consume something like 1,500 lbs in 15 minutes to induce a lethal response. There are no known fatalities from the substance and it is considered non- toxic...

if your going to do it

start above the 5th or 6th set of true nodes

you can also tie, train and tease her, and give her a little more time in veg to attain an even canopy
