Hey guys,

had this autoflowering one which got bud rot on the top and middle. I took the bottom ones before they got brown, but I'm not sure if I can use them at least for a cookie or so. Problem is, that this my only harvest ... I'm only smoking / eating a few times a year and I don't have a provider besides auto grow. So I'm kinda ... desperate. ;)

🤠 Bud rot is caused by a type of mold that devastates growing buds in environments with high humidity levels There are three types of mold that can affect your plant: bud rot, root rot and powdery mildew. Although all of them are types of fungus, bud rot can be considerably more harmful to your harvest than powdery mildew because it attacks directly our precious flowers, turning them black, leaving them smelly and not suitable for consumption.. 🧙‍♂️

IS BUD ROT DANGEROUS?​

Another short, straightforward answer: Yes, it is. As mentioned, ingesting harmful fungi will lead to

serious, long-term health consequences. The mildest symptoms may be flu-like symptoms and potential allergic reactions, while the worst would be chest pains and respiratory issues.

Once you see signs of mould or fungus, your options are either to snip off the infected area or to throw out the plant altogether. That will depend on the severity of the contamination and the type of affliction.

But with these tips in mind, your best bet is to take precautionary measures. Keep in mind that when it comes to bud rot, prevention will always be better than cure.
