Regarding your question above about finding a few male pollen sacks.
It's Mother Natures way of self-preservation. Cannabis is not intended to be deprived of offspring, it's unnatural in the biological world.
Personally, I seek out males to collect pollen. When I am growing out a female & desire seedless buds, I use a Q-tip and pollinate a few of the lower branches. This gives the female hope of producing offspring.
Do this approximately 6-7 weeks prior to harvest, to allow the seeds to develop.
I believe it also spurs bud development. She is tricked into thinking there is a male nearby and makes even more flowers to enhance the chance of pollination. In the end, you get more buds and a handful of seeds to grow down the road. Everybody is happy!

i'd remove the male flowers and keep her growing for those 2 planned weeks.
Do keep an eye on the plant, check her everyday for new bananas and remove them too.

When they start to make nana’s it means they are fully ripe . The lady is changing her plans to reproduce, instead of making resins to catch male pollen she’s making her own pollen ... just pinch them with tweezers it will let you the time of flushing properly.

flushing now couldnt hurt anything, if it hasnt finished in a week or two you could always go that extra week... probably would have enough juice left in the soil/plant

That’s what I would have done. How were the trics when you did harvest? All clear or atleast some milky? For me the always have more than one in flower so taking my chances with nanners is not an option
