Learning About Trichomes
Did you know that trichomes are the production centers for the majority of all the cannabinoids found in cannabis?
“Both cannabinoids and terpenes are manufactured in small resin glands present on the flowers and main fan leaves of late-stage cannabis plants called trichomes. Derived from the Greek word trikhōma, which means “growth of hair,” they are nearly microscopic, mushroom-like protrusions from the surface of the buds, fan leaves, and — in lower numbers — even on the stalk. While relatively complex, trichomes are comprised primarily of a stalk and a head. It is within the head that the actual production of cannabinoids like THC occurs.”
