This looks like damage caused by thrips. Neem oil can be effective against them but the neem oil needs to be sprayed daily on the leaves both on the top and undersides. Be careful when using neem oil as this can cause an unpleasant taste on your buds. You can also try Spinosad products which are organic and non toxic to humans, pets and plants. Make sure to follow the directions on the bottles of either product as this will result in getting rid of those pesky insects. Make sure to treat your soil as well. It also does t hurt to pick up some lady bugs for around $9 they are an effective deterrent for other small soft bodied insects. Hope this helps. Good luck on your grow. Remember the already effected area on the leaves will not get any better at this point. It is best to look at areas that have not been effected yet.

Didn’t look like bugs IMO. Congrats on the harvest!

Youre not supposed to foliar at all after week 3 flower. I suggest you get predatory mites. Hopefully they dont run away because it looks like youre outdoors.

Hi there! Sad news :( It definitely looks like moths/miners/thrips. They suck nutrients out of your plants, some species can dig tunnels through the leaves, they tend to reproduce very quickly. They love heat, humidity, water, and healthy plants. They hate wind, neem-oil, and dry environments. I'd recommend to take a look below your leaves, they're often hidden there. If this invasion is confirmed, continue spraying neem-oil at night, try not to overwater your plant and never let the drain hang around, put some fans blowing straight onto your plant, and they should disappear soon. If you think it's something else, zoomed pictures would help us confirm the diagnosis. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

If the spots showed after you sprayed, then it's likely burn spots. It could be bug damage.
Use a loupe or take a close picture and zoom it. If it's burn marks it will be obvious
