    I have had 5ft long branches split from the main stock, and all I had to do is tie them back up and tape the injury and all was good. The first time it happened it split where a topping split and 10 weeks was harvesting that very same branch. If you do this make sure get the split put all the way back together and be sure to use tape that will stretch (I use black electrical tape) that way when it grows it doesn't choke that part off.

    Sometimes those injured stems make the best buds in the end!

    Yeah what they all said and I'll add. Just keep an eye on it until it heals. It is an access point for bugs and mold. If it was at the soil line, I would protect it from moisture. Might want to support the plant with a stick.
