@zenpunz, the potency will decrease very little because although you will not lose any trichomes that are indigenous to the bud you clean, you will, however, lose any loose trichomes that have broken off of other buds which have stuck to the bud you are cleaning. These trichomes will fall off during the blanching process and appear as part of the “brown sludge” floating on top of the blanching water.

I hope this helps! Reach out through the contact page if you have any further questions! :)


Does the potency decrease if you do the cleaning method?
