Best time to harvest marijuana: morning, daytime or nighttime?

A question from a fellow grower:

I was told the best time to harvest herb is in the morning because the thc is in the buds more. Does it make a difference? I was concerned about the plants being too dew covered in the morning and thought they should “possibly” need to be dryer.

Early morning is the best time, maybe even right before the sun comes up if you have green lights you can work with. It is more for curing and keeping the smoke smooth more than THC being highest, although light does degrade THC, and it is to reduce the amount of nutrients and chlorophyll in the plant tissues right before you cut it down. It is also why the plant is cured in the dark. If there is a lot of dew on the plant you will want to kinda air dry it before you start the curing process.
