Topping buds or not?

Question

So far I have experienced topping 3-4 mm of the buds/colas that are the pointiest leads to fatter buds.

I will always top, seems like an awesome thing to do. I've done it once with my one plant and left the other one to just grow out. The one which was topped did way better. More exposure to sunlight for the buds, more buds, etc.

At what point do you top the buds?

I have accidentally done it before and it came out great. But have not tried it intentionally. Will give it a go when I grow sativas again.

So for example, the below cola the five buds coming of the main cola I topped off about 3mm. She is in week 9 flower.

@SkunkPharm  I did not feel the need to do this to my Indica dominant strain.

Agreed it would not make sense topping these. 4weeks in flower now.42fa997c06fa723cceb0c3b30715c11f.jpg13c64d32e2f47e756c97f8fbd9c7497c.jpg

Good example below... 9 weeks of flowering... what is she trying to accomplish! Cut that mutant off.
