Ever wonder what marijuana looks like up close and personal?
We all know that marijuana is a miracle of nature – a beautiful, almost alien looking plant. However, like almost everything else, it is almost unrecognisable when you take a REALLY close look at it. So lets take a look at cannabis under the microscope!
You needn’t be stoned to appreciate the biological beauty of weed, although it doesn’t hurt! Some of these images look like they’re straight up from another planet. Even with the naked eye, you can usually see the reddish-orange hairs on the plant, but a closer inspection shows up a myriad of other colours.
Moving in for an even closer look, you’ll see the crystalline frost of trichomes, the milky, clear-white glands growing on the epidermis of the buds and leaves. This resin coat is what makes weed sticky, and it’s what produces cannabinoids like THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
Now that you’ve seen this miracle plants incredible anatomy, you’ll agree your herbs deserve to be matched by a beautiful vaporizer! Check out our latest range below – we only stock the best on the market at Evertree.
