A trichome, when referring to Cannabis (ie Indica) it is not the hair on the surface of a leaf or stem but refers to the crystalline monstrosity on a flowering top. This is sometimes referred to as a resinous gland. I beleive the original poster is the one who is "noneducated". Trichomes are an essential ingredient in Magilla and Heezy Fosheezy.
A hair on the surface of a leaf or stem.
