Training Plan

A plan established by a company for its employees and managers starting what training (both regulatory and job skills training) is required for the employee to be considered competent in the job.

Trainwreck

Bred from a cross between Aghani Indicas and, Mexican and Thai Sativas, this strain has a high Tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) content and exudes aromas of lemon and pine.

Transformer

A device in the ballast that transforms electric current from one voltage to another.


Transpire

To give off water vapor and by-products via the stomata on cannabis leaves.


Transplant

Transplanting your cannabis plants can be one of the trickiest parts of growing your cannabis plants. Once your plants have established a stable root system, they are ready for a period of major foliage growth. If you don't transplant your plants in time they might get rootbound. Rootbound means that the roots have grown all the way around the edges and your plant will not grow any more until you transplant it to a larger container.

Tree

A slang term for cannabis that references the shape of certain buds, when trimmed, nugs of cannabis often look like little trees.

Treefer

This is one of many treasures that’s resulted from the great melting cannabis in culture - 'treefer' is a slang term for cannabis that combines the terms 'tree' and 'reefer.'

Trellis

A frame of small boards that trains or supports cannabis plants, a trellis is a framed screen or net with a lattice pattern. It can be positioned vertically or horizontally to maximize available grow space and light penetration in any cannabis garden. This allows the grower to dramatically increase yields.


Trichome

Trichomes are the crystalized glands that produce resin on cannabis flowers and leaves that contain different cannabinoids.

Trim

Trim is the leftover bits of cannabis leaf and smaller buds that you collect huge piles of when trimming a freshly-harvested plant. Trim can often be used to make extracts like hash because you usually end up with so much of it and it still contains many valuable cannabinoids - the natural concentration of cannabinoids in such ancillary parts of the cannabis plant, however, is just not as concentrated.
