Trichome Crystals are Beautiful and Heisenberg Grows them.
Cannabis plants covered with trichome crystals are a beautiful site and even better medicine. Here you will find some of our most beautiful plants and some information about the trichome crystals and how they work.
From a distance, trichome crystals just look like small white dots, in the beginning. As the plants mature and get ready for harvest, the colors can change, but the untrained eye may only see dots. It’s not until you magnify the plant that you begin to see just how magnificent they are.
As you can see from this first picture, the plant appears to have small white hairs. It may appear like a white fur.
A little closer look shows the “dots” have a definite structure. There is a stem with a bulb on the end. This bulb has an extremely high concentration of THC and CBD. In fact, these bulbs are filled with pure THC and CBD.
This page isn’t meant to be a trichome crystal anatomy lesson. Instead, it’s to help you recognize that there is more to the cannabis plant that getting stoned. Instead, you should realize it’s a natural plant with medicinal properties and the ability to alleviate pain and suffering in many people.
If you continue to magnify the plant, the trichome anatomy becomes visible and you can begin to understand what makes the “hair-like” look of the plant. The stem is clearly visible, along with the resin-filled bulb.
These trichomes or “triches”, “trichs”, or “trikes” as some people call them start off clear. In fact, at the beginning on the plant’s life cycle, the plant has no triches. As the flower (bud) grows and matures, the trichomes begin to form. They begin clear and turn milky or white as the near harvest.
There are many opinions about the best time to harvest and the “peak” trichome color. Some believe the beginning of the milky process is best. Others believe an amber color is better. Still others have different views. None of them are wrong.
The best time to harvest cannabis is whatever time you believe will deliver the best results for you. Each method of harvest (different times) will produce a product with slightly differing effects. There is no wrong answer on the best time to harvest.
Trichome crystals are what give the plant a sticky feeling. They are filled with a gel-like resin that is “sticky as glue”. The more trichomes, the stickier the plant. The more trichomes, the stronger the high.
Heisenberg Horticulture harvests plants at different stages, depending on the desired effect and patient needs.
