Your current ratio 70% clear / 30% milky means that you have at least one week, at max 2 to wait. You should be already flushing your soil, and watching the trichomes everyday with your microscope to find the perfect harvest day, even better if you can watch multiple times a day. As long as most of the trichomes have turned from clear and thin to fat and milky/white you know the 'harvest window' is open, even if you don't see any amber. Harvesting too soon will result in a uplifting effect but you will lose some terpenes & oil potential. Waiting longer with more amber trichomes will result in a heavy stone/couchlocking effect. You're doing really great with this monster, keep up the good work and enjoy your harvest bro!

8 to 9 weeks is the most usual. If most thricomes are mostly clear, then definitely you have some more time to wait. As the time nears, the pistils will go from white to yellow and then brownish / red
