What Marijuana Looks Like Under a Microscope

 microscopic cannabis


 As the Cannabis plant begins to become more and more legal and acceptable, general curiosity of the plant and its components has also been growing. There has already been a significant amount of research done on the benefits of marijuana, but one researcher wanted to take a look at the plant from a different scope, a microscopic one. Rochester Institute of Technology professor and science photographer Ted Kinsman captures an unseen side of Cannabis in his new book, "Cannabis: Marijuana Under The Microscope". The images he captures are scanning electron microscope photos and show extreme colorful detail of the plant.  Check out the short video below to see the Cannabis plant in a new light, up-close and personal.  And check out some of the funny and clever youtube comments below as well.
