Abscisic Acid (ABA)


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.
