Sugar Leaf | Noun

/ˈshu̇-gər ˈlēf/

  1. A term used within the cannabis industry to refer to the small leaves that, together with other sugar leaves, hold cannabis buds together. They are called sugar leaves due to the high concentration of trichomes that cover the leaf with a sugar-like appearance. Because of their high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes, sugar leaves are typically trimmed off of the plant after it has been harvested and are then used for the production of concentrates.
