Trimming down a male? Collect pollen?

  1. I have 4 plants so far. 2 for sure females, 1 unknown, and a possible male.

    I want to get some seeds for next grow season. How long after I am able to sex it should I start cutting pollen sacks off to clone to collect the pollen?

    I am planning on cutting the stems off, and using the small plastic shot glasses with holes in then for the stems(read it a while ago in a different thread here somewhere) to collect the pollen.

    or.. If I trim down the mail to where there is just one stem with a few pollen nodes on it will that pollenate the entire garden?

    If a male pollenates a female how much of a decrease of potency is there in the buds?
