Hey man, I saw no one answered this. I'm still a newb myself, but I read one way to see if they Are ready is to see if the stem will snap. If it is still bendy/rubbery then not yet.
I'm sure someone will tell you much more expert advice than me, but just trying to help.
There are some good reads here too.

I think this guy covers it

Depending on if you cut the plant at the base or if you cut individual limbs, also depending on if you wet trimmed or left the sugar leaves. It can also depend on the temperature of your drying room. Without details I can say any where from 7-12 days, but this is without details. Rule of thumb is if you bend the stem and hear a distinctive snap then it should be ready for final trim and curing process. Also if the buds come off the stem real easy than it's good to go. There are countless videos on YouTube and I'm sure many post on THCFARMER about ways to dry and cure. Hope you the best luck and good job on your first grow. May there be many more to come and please share as you grow and learn.

So i keep my temps at 60% humidity and 60-66 f if i can but that usally will dry my plants between 6-15 days but like ninja has said eait untill you can start clean snapping the side branchs in half in the middle of the buds or close to buds as beside the main stem will be dryer quicker but you should be totally fine ill say in 1 week than trim and cure woot!
