harvest with thrip damage

Discussion in 'Harvesting and Processing Marijuana' started by IMO, Oct 8, 2010.

  1. so late into the grow (10th or 11th week) i noticed some thrip damage on one of my plants. ive since begun to harvest the plant, noting that the damage has spread up to the top leaves. most of the buds seem unaffected and as im harvesting im cutting away the leaves that have been damaged. my question is this: everything is fine to smoke correct? i know thrips are mites and they live off the plant but once its chopped im assuming they will leave for greener pastures. ive taken a pretty good gander at the buds (naked eye and scoped) and dont see any remnants but i figured id asked the community to make sure everything was a-ok. if not i imagine ill toss it in with the rest of the trimmings for some qwiso.
    anyhow thanks for your help and guidance.
