This is a very interesting article examines cannabis microbiota studies and the effects of endophytes on the elicitation of secondary metabolite production in cannabis plants. The review aims to shed light on the importance of the cannabis microbiome and how cannabinoid compound concentrations can be stimulated through symbiotic and/or mutualistic relationships with endophytes.

Pathogens and Molds Affecting Production and Quality of Cannabis sativa L.

Original Research ARTICLE Front. Plant Sci., 17 October 2019 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fpls.2019.01120

This is a very interesting research article that covers the different pathogens affecting both the root and shoot growth of Cannabis sativa L. Inoculation experiments were conducted on developing buds and the roots of Cannabis sativa to determine the extent of disease development caused by pathogenic fungi. LINK BELOW
