sounds like gold to me. Actually, platinum!
i place a bid of 100 bucks for a 1" sucker if you’re planning to post it at eBay
my humble take is that it is better to leave them alone the entire growing season, and just wait until winter dormancy to remove from the pot to dissect the babies off.
last winter we repotted our first seed-grown cultivar(“vegas booty”) into a wide-mouthed metal basin and stuffed with friable sawdust/soil mix, in the hopes that any sucker which may develop would be easy to comb through and severed cleanly with little damage to both sucker and mother plant. And if no suckers grow this year, i will(painful as it sounds) conservatively butcher the root mass into several root cuttings and force them to activate their adventitious buds OR die. Maniacal laughter, haha
