How Do You Harvest A Cannabis Plant?

So you’ve determined that it’s time to harvest your cannabis plant. So how to you actually harvest it? Glad you asked!

Here’s how to harvest a cannabis plant, just follow these steps:



Cut down the plant, using sharp scissors or pruning shears. Be careful not to damage your lovely new buds or branches, as this can affect the quality and potency of the cannabis.

Trim Leaves

Remove the large fan leaves from the plant, leaving only the smaller, more resinous leaves and buds. These are the parts of the plant that contain the highest levels of THC and other compounds, and are the most valuable for making cannabis products. 😎


Dry the buds and leaves by hanging them upside down in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight. This will help to preserve the quality and potency of the cannabis, and also make it easier to trim and cure later on.

Trim Buds

Trim the buds, using scissors or a trimming tool to remove any excess leaves or stems. This will improve the appearance and potency of the cannabis, and also make it easier to store and use later on.


Cure the buds, by storing them in airtight containers in a cool, dark place for several weeks. This will help to develop the flavor and aroma of the cannabis, and also improve its potency and effects.

Once you have harvested and cured your cannabis plants, you can use the buds and leaves to make a variety of cannabis products, including regular flower, concentrates, edibles, and more. Just remember to follow the laws and regulations in your area, and always use cannabis legally, responsibly and safely.
