Hello @William137 ! Watching for the hairs until they turn brown is not a precise way to decide if they are ready to harvest. You have to check the trichomes with a microscope like this one ( https://www.amazon.com/Microscope-Trichome-Identification-Cannabis-Magnification/dp/B01LZR1FEV/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1541371070&sr=8-18&keywords=cannabis+microscope ). Start flushing when you see amber trichomes and harvest when the trichomes are 80% milky and 20% amber. If you want a body feeling stone harvest when trichomes are 80% amber and 20% milky. Happy growing ! :+1:
