I have a problem.
Leaves are turning yellow, and plants are not mature.
Should I give more nutrients?

See Image.

The yellowing I see in your post are what I know to be Mud lugs and are normal. You will most likely want to harvest these leaves, Scrap or smoke em, They are of the least quality. Your plants look great! Be careful with the fertilizer at this point of growth as it may hinder the curing process.

Yup. What he said. Your plants look great. Good color overall and nice green new growth. I don't think they need anything. People call the very bottom leaves mud lugs. sand lugs or dirt leaves because they are usually half covered with dirt from cultivating, or mud splashed up on them from rain or irrigation. And they almost always turn yellow long before the others.Yours looks really nice compared to most. I'd pick them and smoke them. Good practice for what is to come later in the season.

What variety are you growing? And where abouts do you live? If you add you general location to your user profile, it will help people give you better answers if you have other questions.

Just pluck them, dry them and smoke them.

I have a steelwire hook for that kind of leaves.

Agreed with everyone else !

Yellowed leaf could indicate nitrogen - poor soil conditions, but at that lowest of position on the plant, they are simply expended.
Mudlugs... pluck all of them off, hang them up to cure, and you could burn them quite soon, usually for a mild smoke...

All told, in Moder Svea, sunlight and temperature will be problematic... Possibly causing the same symptoms.
Your growth appears to be Very good !

Best
