Powdery Mildew 1 Week From Harvest. Ok To Harvest?

Perception

I was planning to harvest my outdoor within the next week, and after a spat of rainstorms and cool weather, just noticed a powdery mildew outbreak. From what I can tell, it’s not on the buds really, and is not widespread yet. Mostly lower leaves. I’ve fixed some environmental conditions that were raising humidity (mulch underneath plants, insulating blanket at night that was getting wet from rain), but I wanted to know if this is dangerous to harvest/dry now.

I’m taking measures to knock back the PM. Aside from fixing environmental conditions, I sprayed them down with an herbal concoction last night to kill PM. I plan to do a 10% milk spray this weekend too.

My question is: is this a potential loss? Is it dangerous to dry/cure/smoke bids that recently had PM? I’m hoping that I can knock it back over next few days to the point that’s it’s not really visible, but still worries me. I’m 100% organic and will only use natural products on the plants. Thanks!
