Cannabis Under Microscope: [Detailed Info.]!

Marijuana, as we are well aware, is a natural miracle. However, when was the last time you looked at it before lighting that bowl on fire?

To appreciate pot for its biological beauty, you need not be high (though it certainly helps). Pistils, easily spotted by the naked eye, provide a reproductive function for the marijuana plant but don’t significantly affect the plant’s flavor or strength when smoked.

Trichomes, the milky, clear-white glands that grow on the epidermis of the buds and leaves, sparkle like crystalline frost as you move closer. This sticky resin layer is where cannabinoids like THC (marijuana’s psychotropic component) are produced.

If you look closely enough, trichomes will look like the alien mushrooms from your favorite science fiction film. Which, to be fair, is probably what they are.

Produces More THC:

As shown here on the underside of a leaf, trichomes can be either spiky and protective or squat and spherical and generate more THC.

Now, down below, is a breathtaking panorama of cola, or flower bud, from which new plants will soon emerge. Higher levels of THC can be attributed to a greater concentration and variety of trichomes in this region of the cannabis plant.

Yes, it’s fair to argue that there’s more to marijuana than meets the eye. You’ll be that much more appreciative of 4:20 now that you have a deeper understanding of the miraculous plant’s magnificent anatomy.
