what are cannabis flowers?

The term ‘flower’ refers to the part of the female cannabis plant that is trichome-rich and suitable for smoking. For thousands of years, the flowers of the female cannabis plant have been smoked, cooked with, or turned into hashish for medicinal, spiritual, and recreational purposes. Users can smoke the dried flowers through a pipe, bowl, or with the use of a bong, and the flowers can easily be cooked into oils or fats that absorb the active compounds of the plant.

Cannabis plants are classified as either Indica or Sativa. Generally, Sativa leaves are longer, thinner, and light in color. On the other hand, Indica leaves are darker, wider, and broader. Users should note that each strain affects people differently. Ensure you test which strain works for you.


The flower, also known as a bud, is the section on the Marijuana plant containing most of the cannabinoids. It is produced by the female plants during the flowering stage, classically when days get shorter in the fall, or indoors with a long daily dark period. Most Massachusetts users prefer grinding it up before smoking.


A Cola refers to the terminal cluster of blooming buds on the main branch of the female plant. Although flower clusters will form all over the female plant, the flowers of the main “cola” are often the most prized.


These are the tiny, resin-filled glands that cover the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. They are the visible crystals on all flowering tops. Trichomes are responsible for housing the highest densities of cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN).

Trichomes are usually used to measure the level of potency of a cannabis plant. The more trichomes there are in a cannabis plant, the higher the THC levels of the plant. Depending on the growth cycle stage, trichomes can change in size and color. They can also gauge whether a plant is fully matured and ready to harvest.


Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds that interact with your mind and body after using a cannabis product. The most well-known cannabinoids are THC and CBD, while the minor ones include CBN, CBC, and CBG.

CBD and THC are known to interact with various receptors within the nervous system of users. CBD, in particular, is known for its neuroprotective properties, which explains why it is ideal for treating various neurological disorders, such as PTSD, seizure disorders, and depression.

On the other hand, THC acts as a psychoactive compound that interacts with receptors in your brain responsible for memory, coordination, and pleasant sensations. As such, THC is used to stimulate your appetite and reduce nausea.


Terpenoids are organic compounds found in plant essential oils. They add flavor and aroma to the flower, though they do not have any psychotropic effects on humans. However, terpenoids’ synergy with cannabinoids creates a more substantial entourage effect. This enhances the cannabis plant’s medicinal properties.

A cannabis flower is the star of cannabis products. It is accessible, versatile, and contains high levels of cannabinoids depending on the strain used.
