Cutting leaves is most often counter productive, especially during flower. I only remove them if they(fan leaves) get in the way of budsites(or move them out of the way if I can).

The mj plant stores.energy in its leaves and needs them for photosynthesis. Later in flower the plant will use the energy reserves up and the leaves will die and fall off.

you did the right thing by testing only one plant. some genetics will respond better to taking leaves off, also called "defoliation", better than others. ive recently started doing this with a couple of my strains about every 2 weeks in veg, 1 week before 12/12 and again about 2 weeks into bloom during the stretch stage. works out very well for me personally but like i said, some strains/genetics respond better than others

They will not grow back. She will produce more however. Chances are you even flash dried that little bud.
