    Wow, that's pretty neat and fairly more complex than I thought.

    Re: 3 Dimensional THC Molecule

    Here's another good model of our favorite molecule.

    http://www.3dchem.com/3dmolecule.asp?ID=16.

    It's interactive.

    Funny there are only 3 different elements in THC, hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon.

    C21 (in black) H30 (in white) O2 (in red).

    Theres a benzene ring at the base of the molecule C6H6, and the carbons branch from there terminated by hydrogen atoms.

    Cool, they need to add that to the Linux 3D molecule screensaver. I was going to suggest some
    electron microscope pictures, but I did a search and it's already been posted...:58:

    This is the one I use for my background. Someone has colored in a scanning electron microscope picture.

    I'm getting a tattoo of the chemical structure on my forearm! i'm a chemist, so i can just say it's cuz of my love for chemistry! HAHAHAHAHA I LOVE WEED!

    Re: 3 Dimensional THC Molecule

    thats funky to imagine that the tip of that molecule is what actually lodges into tha thc receptors of your brain and gets your high

    Re: 3 Dimensional THC Molecule

    How is the THC molecule formed in a marijuana plant and how is it made synthetically? Could i incorporate this process into an ordinary fruit or berry (for cooking) with genetic modification?

    Re: 3 Dimensional THC Molecule

    The THC molecule along with around 66 other cannabinoids are just components of the resin that is formed within the head of the trichome (the bulbous tip). The tip itself doesn't plug into your brain's receptors, it's several orders of magnitude larger than the form of THC that causes the primary effect we all love so much.

    Re: 3 Dimensional THC Molecule

    Ah i see, thank you. But is it possible to genetically modify the resin on a molecular scale into a new plant that would be of the same family like hops or hackberry trees or is that crazy talk?
