Abscisic acid is the phytohormone associated with sustaining physiological dormancy. It has been known as a classic hormone in cannabis plants. It is the 15-carbon compound and part of the terpenoid category of the metabolites. Abscisic acid plays a crucial role in the induction of the proteinase inhibitors seen in damaged plant tissues.
“Abscisic Acid (ABA) is a key hormone that can control the ability of cannabis plants to thrive and endure harsh and challenging environments.”
“I’ve learned that the localized damage on leaves can lead to the buildup of abscisic acid.”
