Greek is correct: τρίχωμα tríkhōma from θρίξ thríx "hair" (don't ask, Greek grammar can get weird). m.e. 11:33, 20 Jun 2004 (UTC)


Do we really need such a detailed section on marijuana? It seems like it could be reduced to a simple quib- put the rest on the cannabis article itself. Claude.Xanadu 03:11, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Is there a citation that THC affects insects?


Speaking of citations, there is a sections that states "the most recent research" under the CBN section, yet it cites no research, or even an article about the research. Whomever put that there, could you please cite the study or article where you heared this? 24.83.215.11 07:04, 12 December 2006 (UTC) Zeroedout

Where's stinging trichomes?[edit]

I read in an article by Han-Yi Fu, Shiang-Jiuun Chen, and Ling-Long Kuo-Huang in Taiwania, 48(4): 213-223, 2003 called "Comparative Study on the Stinging Trichomes and Some Related Epidermal Structures in the Leaves of Dendrocnide meyeniana, Girardinia diversifolia, and Urtica thunbergiana" that: "The trichomes are generally grouped into glandular, non-glandular and stinging trichomes." Stinging trichomes are not mentioned in this wiki-article, should they not be included? I am not a plant morphologist so I feel that I'm not quite up to the task (perhaps should they belong to the glandular group by phylogeny?).

Perhaps also mention that "the stinging trichomes are also known to occur in the families of Euphorbiaceae, Loasaceae, Hydrophyllaceae, and Urticaceae (Thurston and Lersten, 1969)." (ibid.)

It would of course be great if someone could expand on the functional morphology of these trichomes.

Cheers,

Trichomes and cannabis[edit]

I removed this whole section from the article, as I don't think it's really relevant to trichomes in general. It don't think it would fit in the Cannabis article either so I've just deleted it. --Graminophile (talk) 11:18, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for mislabeling my revert (slip of the drop-down); it is obviously neither unexplained nor by an anon. Although I agree that it doesn't belong here, you can't just delete it. I'm going to put it in a separate article.--Curtis Clark (talk) 13:58, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Trichomes of cannabis. I'll let someone else decide whether it should link from here.--Curtis Clark (talk) 14:17, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Hey, I wrote a reply but it seems to have gone - maybe I didn't post it properly. A google search for the cannabis text turns up Drugs-forum FAQ, with identical text (& photo) dated to 2003, 2 years before the same text was added to Wikipedia by an unregistered user. So, I think it should be deleted completely, i.e. your new article as well.--Graminophile (talk) 14:50, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Image replaced[edit]

I don't agree that the new close up image is of higher quality than the previous one. It's harder to see the trichomes, it's out of focus and there is a lot of noise. I'll revert the edit. Luca (talk) 05:47, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
