    In future, please watch your grammar and spelling. i can only guess that you are saying:

    you have been growing a plant for the last 7 weeks.
    the store said 9 weeks to completion, but you think it should be 8.
    the trichromes (nooz?) have begun to turn amber (brown?).
    you want to know how mature (brown) you should let them become before harvest.
    You dont know how to determine the amount of mature trichromes without a mircoscope.

    assuming my interpretation is right:

    1) the package will usually advertise completion times slightly faster than the average.
    2) the best way to tell is based on the trichromes, which turn from clear to white to amber as they ripen.
    3) a large magnifing glass is often capable o getting a good look at the trichrome formations. high quality digicams can also take good macro shots sometimes that make it easy to tell.
    4) for a head buzz, you want less ripe trichs. (30/70 amber/cloudy)
    5) for a body stone (couchlock), you want more ripe. (70/30 amber/cloudy)

    hope i helped. if your at 7 weeks, you can probably expect 2-3 more still.

    i cant honestly say without seeing your plant. but if the shop reccomended 8-9 weeks, id expect it to take 9-10 weeks

    Just done some of mine they were 70-75 per cent brown pisils. Thought there'd go another week but we had a few extra cold nights here and they ripened up the last 10 percent in a matter of days.
