the microstructure of the resin glands

The cannabinoids basically do not flow in the plant, nor are they the plant's sap. In fresh plant material, cannabinoids are almost entirely in their acid forms. Cannabinoids may therefore act at this site to inhibit new synapse formation.

Today, several patient populations continue to use natural cannabis and its cannabinoids in large numbers despite its illegality and the availability of Marinol. Despite FDA approval2 , Marinol typically provides only limited relief to select patients, particularly when compared to natural cannabis and its cannabinoids. There are many different techniques for sampling, extraction, and estimation of cannabinoids in plant material.

From the microstructure of the resin glands and the complexity of the resin, it is apparent that Cannabis invests considerable energy in making and storing the cannabinoids. The possibility that there are non-cannabinoids that are psychoactive or interacting with the cannabinoids has not been investigated in detail. Recent research has shown that cannabinoids like anandamide (made in the human body) and THC (from marijuana) can halt and reverse breast cancer.

Flowers from certain plants (e.g. cannabis) are called bract/bracteole, and are (with cannabis) the most prized part of the plant. Biosynthetic relationships between terpenes and cannabinoids have been firmly established. Cannabis is a tall, erect, annual cannabis.
