the present study, drought stress was applied to a chemovar II cultivar during week 7 of the flowering stage. It was hypothesized that controlled drought stress may be a valuable tool for growers to improve the quality of their cannabis crops. The

the shortage and uneven distribution of water resources, water has become an important factor limiting crop yields in China ( Miao et al., 2017 ). Crop losses caused by drought are the highest among losses caused by all abiotic stresses ( Placide et al

coastal plants are able to confer heat and salt tolerance to crop plants such as cucurbits or tomato, respectively ( Rodriguez et al., 2008 ). The ability of endophytes to confer stress tolerance to both monocots and eudicots suggests that the genetic

Sustainable agriculture has the potential to provide for an ever-increasing human population ( Mishra et al., 2012 ). Without intervention, the usual losses of crop yield due to biotic and abiotic stresses may, in a near future, be amplified by
