Hi all,
 
need your advice.  I have a been growing my first crop ever.  The plants (early pearl) have survived growing outdoor and they have started to bud, but the buds look like tiny flowers( not much bigger than seeds) with wee dangling hairs coming out of them.  I thought they were ready, and pulled off a few wee buds, dryed them out and then fired them up.  They had no effect what so ever.  I know they are females so how do finish my babies off. Any tips would be most welcome.
 
Cheers

You used the scottish term "wee". Are you from Scotland, and growing outside?
 
If you are, then i'm guessing the reason your buds aren't that big, is because there isn't much sun, to give the plant the energy to produce them. Plus the cold will slow them down too.
 
How long have the been outdoors flowering? Early Pearl should flower quite quick, so it could just be that as this is your first ever grow, and you are growing outdoors, maybe even in Scotland? That the buds are not up to much.
 
This is nothing to worry about. A bummer aye, but its what happens. Even indoors. My first ever crop was growjn indoors, so no bad weather to deal with. And the bud was awful. Didn't have any effect to speak off, and tasted like shite. But as you keep growing, even by the 3rd grow, the buds are much much better.
 
I'd suggest growing indoors if you possibly can. Especially if you are in a cold place up north. As you only get one shot with the outdoor season, whereas, you could of pulled another 2 or 3 crops by the time next outdoor season comes round, and have your skills honed, and ready for action. LOL.
 
Good luck man. A pic would be good also.

Tiny flowers (with white or pale yellow petals?), about the size of seeds, with things dangling from them...

Sounds like this could be a male. Got any pictures?

as ganja said, pictures would be good, i thought you said hairs, but you may well be confused if this is your 1st grow.

The 'hairs' bit sounded fine, but it's hard to imagine pistils dangling or hanging. That's very much a feature of male plants -  the pods and staminate flowers hang from tiny stalks and the pollen-releasing anthers dangle from the centre of the petals. Cannabis is an air-pollinator and this form allows pollen to be released to the wind more easily.

Pistils generally reach for the sky, to catch the airborne pollen.
