No, the correct term is resin glands. Trichomes can mean a number of different outgrowths from any plant: Trichome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe trichomes are what hold the THC. Trichomes is just another way of saying resin gland. This is where the THC and cannabinoids are stored. No trichomes or immature trichomes=no high/poor high. Its that simple.
Congrats Tatt...Awesome article, very valuable information! And even better news is that I will begin my first harvest in a week or so!
hey farmer...lol..yup, with the info and input i've gotten here AND with the help of a couple 'gro-guru's' i know...this is becoming a very fun hobby! lolhi everyone,
some nice looking bud there punksonn, im on my first grow now, and this site was invaluable. i've made some mistakes on the way but its all been a learning curve for me, smoked for a while but never thought about doing my own. i harvest tomorrow so im on pins at the min, carnt wait to get started. i only did the one plant, blue cheese 'well started with 2 but one grew a pair of gonads so it went'. i think this thread regarding trichomes is very important knowledge in the latter period of the cycle, i got a little x60 microscope with light as big as my thumb for Â£5.00 and they have played a big part in my desicion as to when to harvest through what iv learned. Thanks to everyone who is a part of this community for being so selfless and sharing your experiences/knowledge. Iv took some pictures along the way so when iv finished i will put them up in a journal. She is 41inch/104cm tall and 45inch across. really fat and bushey.
Thanks again, very much appreciated, farmerbarny Be Happy be Nice and be Kind!!!!
