Trichomes

From the Greek meaning hair, these crystalized glands produce resin on the marijuana plant. They are the parts of the marijuana plant that carry the vast majority of the cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.) and cover the major surfaces of the plant. Up close trichomes resemble mini mushrooms, with each segment providing a certain value to the plant. The most valuable segemnt is the head, used to produce sieve or water hash.
