Leaving Grow Chop time till late, Amber Trichomes

Hello I was wondering if you were to grow say, something nice and easy like Northern Lights which is heavily indica, and leave it for a long time in flowering making most of the trichomes amber some cloudy, what kind of effect would this weed have if you were to smoke it? What happens if you let them all go amber, does the THC degrade into CBN ? I found this information on another site, is it correct? Not really looking to get high, just want to fall asleep

Trichomes Start Turning Amber

If you’re looking for a more relaxing, ‘couch-lock’, sleep aid-type high you can leave your buds to mature to a level where the trichomes turn a darker amber from their previous cloudy look, with almost all of the white hairs on the bud having turned a dark orange or brown colour.

At this stage, most of the THC has naturally converted to CBN, which has very relaxing properties and will produce far more of a body-high than a head-high. This can be ideal for growing for pain-management or insomnia treatment, as well as reducing some of the more powerful psychoactive effects that we all know cannabis to possess.

Thanks

Yeah it is accurate, the longer you leave it the more THC breaks down in to CBN. It's the same principle when you decarboxylate, it converts from THCA > THC > CBN.

 

CBN will still get you mildly high, but it has a bunch of other effects too. It's mainly know for being one of the more sedative cannabinoids, but it's also an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, vasorelaxator, antibacterial.
