Bulbous trichomes are tiny structures found in some plant leaves and stems. They produce and store important compounds such as terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids. Named for their bulb-like shape, they serve as the plant's defence against herbivores and play a crucial role in the plants defence. Their production and composition can vary greatly within and between species and are a subject of ongoing research. Bulbous trichomes also have potential applications in medicine, agriculture, and horticulture.
