Hello @Missionninja, ! That's a sativa so you've got 3 "launch windows" : 1st- Harvest when most of the trichomes are clear = clean & energetic high. 2nd - when they are mostly cloudy =the perfect balance (to me). 3rd - when they are 30%amber and more = sedative/couch lock . According to your pictures somes leaves have cloudy trichomes while some have mostly amber trich , so you should also take a look at the calyxes/buds/sugar leaves on differents parts of the plant to get a general idea of your trichomes maturation as it could change from a bud site to another. You'r the only one who can tell us how close you are from harvest based on your favourite trichomes ratio. I hope it will help you bro :grin::+1:

Thricomes have 3 very distinct stages: clear, which is an inmature thricome; cloudy, a mature thricome with peak THC and amber, degrading THC.
You will never get all thricomes to be at the same stage, the idea is to harvest when most of them are cloudy, with the minority clear or amber.
From your pictures, your plant looks ready go ahead and harvest.
