Trichomes are small hairs or other outgrowth from the epidermis of a plant, typically unicellular and glandular. In cannabis trichomes function as a defense mechanism. When female cannabis plants begin to produce flowers in the wild, they often become vulnerable to various insects and animals as well as non-living environmental variables such as potentially harmful UV rays.
A stigma is a part of the flower of a cannabis plant. It is hair-like projection that grows from the pistil of the female plant’s flower. In a unisex environment, the stigma serves no purpose. However, in the wild or a dual-sex environment, the stigma will collect pollen from male plants so that buds can grow seeds.
Cola is a botanical term that describes the flowering site of a female plant.
The term bract refers to the female flower bract of a plant. The flower bract looks similar to a leaf, but is different than the plant’s foliage and is also not a flower petal. It is actually a modified or specialized leaf.
