Need help leaves turning yellow should I feed now I never gave the plant food I am a totally nubbie
I'd just prune the yellow ones and see if it progresses up the plant. It's not unusual for the first leaves to turn.
If yellowing keeps up, it looks like it wants nitrogen. Good luck, and keep us posted.

Welcome to the farm.

MOBILE NUTRIENTS​

Nutrients that the plant can move around are called mobile nutrients. Nitrogen (N), Magnesium (Mg), Phosphorous (P), Potassium (K), and Nickel (Ni) are examples. These nutrients can be cannibalized and moved to support new growth elsewhere in the plant.

When there is a deficiency, plants typically move the nutrients from old growth to the top of the canopy, where they will be utilized most effectively. Deficiency symptoms then show up on the older leaves from which the nutrients are being removed.

Need more details to be sure but I'll wager Nitrogen.

I've done this too when I make a mistake, but that's not how it is supposed to work. If you do defoliate later in the plant's life for reasons, you should still be cutting off viable green leaves. If not, you are doing something wrong.

How do you add nitrogen to the soil

When you ask should I feed now, what did you mean? Are you planning on using nutrients? Nutrients = nitrogen and other things.

If that statement is a mystery, I recommend you start by reading about your grow style and learning how to do it. Cannabis is not like a carrot where you just stick it in the ground and forget about it until harvest or you will get tiny little buds of questionable quality.

it looks fairly healthy but as you eluded to, it needs larger pot and also needs Maybe more light, but in relation to all other aspects increasing.

to be truthful, what you will get off those sides showing hairs, will literally be almost not worth smoking at the current rate. The top etc will maybe yield a couple grams and that Is maybe the max.

it is part of a learning curve for sure.

good luck man

Did the smiley face at the end of my post give you that impression?....lmao

(this post has a completely different "yellowing leaf issue" than you do. Yellow leaves on oldest/lower growth = nitrogen issue most of the time. Yellow/browning leaves on new growth/growth near top of the plant is typically related to light or heat issues HOWEVER because you are flowering I am going to bet you are seeing a potassium deficiency or lockout from other issues)
