Arguably one of the most essential parts of a cannabis plant. The flowers, also known as buds, are the prized possession of the cannabis plant for cannabis consumers. The cannabis flower contains cannabinoids and terpenes, which give cannabis the taste and potent aromas associated with certain strains. When describing the cannabis bud anatomy, the flowers have a teardrop shape and consist of pistils that attach to the bracts. You’ll notice that the cannabis flower is usually covered in crystal-like trichomes, and the more trichomes the plant has, the more desirable the cannabis flower. The flower is part of the cannabis plant anatomy that gives users the feeling of being high after consuming. Medical patients seeking relief from symptoms of their debilitating health conditions find many medicinal benefits associated with cannabis flowers. It’s important to remember that the flower only grows from female plants. The buds are dried, and many people grind them before smoking or consuming them. If you make a trip to your local dispensary, you’ll find many strains of cannabis flower already ground up and ready to purchase for easy toking.
