Caption: Cannabis leaf. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of a cannabis leaf. The green structure is a cystolyth hair, which contains calcium carbonate and other organic materials. These hairs are found all over the plant and are thought to protect it from being eaten by making it less palatable.
