Plant matter refers to the collective organic material that comprises the various parts of the cannabis plant other than buds, such as fan leaves, stems, and stalks that will be discarded. When cannabis is cultivated and harvested, it generates a significant amount of plant matter. While some plant matter is desired, as it can contain cannabinoids and terpenes, excessive amounts can impact the quality of cannabis products. Proper trimming and processing of plant matter are essential to produce high-quality cannabis extracts, concentrates, and other products. Understanding the balance between preserving valuable compounds and minimizing excess plant matter is crucial for achieving desired potency and purity.
