I personally think that flushing really helps with a cleaner smoke. Bud washing only for outdoor grows. I've done the lemon juice as well as peroxide. Both do a decent job. But I feel the lemon juice imparts some essence to the flower.

I think the huge elephant in the room when it comes to growing outdoors, especially in areas like southern ontario when things get really wet around this time is Powdery Mildew.
For the past 3years I've grown, 80% of my plants. No matter how diligent I am with trying to prevent it. Bud washing is supposed to help. But if you take a proper microscope (not some amazon special) you'll find all types of crap laden in the buds. And personally, I find my outdoor buds give me this certain cough. It could be in my head but I'm 90% sure it has to do with PM or unseen mold.
The plants that didn't have PM were specific strains. Hell I have a couple strains growing right now that are supposed to be PM resistant. Nope, they have PM.

As a remedy I've used a milk spray (60 milk/40 water) and sprayed in the AM when the sun is about to hit the plant. And I mean douse the plant in this. It causes the plant to have a little milk sheen to it after it dries in the sun. But it does keep some of the PM away. You'll have to reapply after a rainy bout. It's a gardeners trick used for plants that tend to attract PM like cucumbers.
This year I'm trying Safers 3 in 1. I'm assuming its a mixture of sodium bicarb and soaps. Just a bitch to find at local HD's. From what i've read, you can continue to spray the plants with this up until 2 weeks before harvest. Personally, I've had more success with milk and trust that the milk doesn't affect the flowers terps.
