Trichomes are the collection of crystalline white hairs that aren’t immediately visible to the naked eye. To determine the quality of your CBD flower, evaluate whether those small crystals on the plant are intact or machine-trimmed. The best quality legal CBD flower is tightly hand-trimmed — and that’s what you’ll find in all Boulder Medicinals products.
It’s in the trichomes that you will find your THC and CBD. Apart from producing such cannabinoids, which determine the potency and properties of flower, trichomes produce the resin. They are also responsible for the storage of essential oils and terpenes, special compounds that give CBD flower its aroma and flavor.
