The effects of UV‐B radiation on photosynthesis, growth and cannabinoid production of two greenhouse‐grown C. sativa chemotypes (drug and fiber) were assessed. Terminal meristems of vegetative and reproductive tissues were irradiated for 40 days at a daily dose of 0, 6.7 or 13.4 kJ m‐2 biologically effective UV‐B radiation. Infrared gas analysis was used to measure the physiological response of mature leaves, whereas gas‐liquid chromatography was used to determine the concentration of… Expand
The effect of ultraviolet radiation on the accumulation of medicinal compounds in plants.
A review is given of how the production by plants of compounds useful as medicines or raw materials for manufacture of medicines is influenced by ultraviolet radiation, particularly by UV-B radiationExpand
UV‐B EFFECTS ON TERRESTRIAL PLANTS
TLDR
Weighting functions, based on action spectra for specific responses, have been developed to assess the biological effectiveness of the irradiation sources and of predicted ozone depletion. Expand
Effects of enhanced UV-B radiation on Mentha spicata essential oils
Abstract In vitro propagated plantlets representing two distinct chemotypes of Mentha spicata, viz. plants producing essential oils rich in piperitone oxide and piperitenone oxide (chemotype I) andExpand
The Effect of Light Spectrum on the Morphology and Cannabinoid Content of Cannabis sativa L.
TLDR
The results show that the plant morphology can be manipulated with the light spectrum, and it is possible to affect the accumulation of different cannabinoids to increase the potential of medicinal grade cannabis. Expand
Cannabis Yield, Potency, and Leaf Photosynthesis Respond Differently to Increasing Light Levels in an Indoor Environment
10 Since the recent legalization of medical and recreational use of cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) in 11 many regions worldwide, there has been high demand for research to improve yield and quality.Expand
Cannabis Yield, Potency, and Leaf Photosynthesis Respond Differently to Increasing Light Levels in an Indoor Environment
TLDR
It was concluded that the leaf light response is not a reliable predictor of whole-plant responses to LI, particularly crop yield, which may be especially evident given that dry inflorescence yield increased linearly with increasing canopy-level PPFD, while leaf-level photosynthesis saturated well-below 1,800 μmol·m−2·s−1.

The Effect of Electrical Lighting Power and Irradiance on Indoor‐Grown Cannabis Potency and Yield
TLDR
There was a corresponding increase in the overall potency of the aerial plant tissue, which was because of the plants in brighter conditions producing a higher proportion of floral material. Expand
The Alkaloid Brachycerine is Induced by Ultraviolet Radiation and is a Singlet Oxygen Quencher ¶

Limited effect of environmental stress on cannabinoid profiles in high‐cannabidiol hemp (Cannabis sativa L.)
TLDR
Five stress treatments were applied in a replicated field trial with three high‐CBD hemp cultivars and cannabinoid content was assayed over a 3‐week time‐course spanning floral maturation, finding no evidence that any of these stresses caused THC concentration or the ratio of THC to CBD to increase at harvest.

Effects of ultraviolet–B irradiances on soybean
TLDR
Substantial interactions between ultraviolet-B and photosynthetically active radiation indicate a need for the measurement of longer wavelength radiation when evaluating the effects of ultraviolet- B radiation on plant growth in natural conditions. Expand
Effects of ultraviolet‐B radiation on the growth and yield of crop plants
TLDR

PLANT PROTECTIVE RESPONSE TO ENHANCED UV‐B RADIATION UNDER FIELD CONDITIONS: LEAF OPTICAL PROPERTIES and PHOTOSYNTHESIS
TLDR
Plants of Vicia faba were grown in the field during early to midsummer while receiving two levels of supplemental UV‐B radiation and total amounts of flavonoids in other leaf tissues did increase in response to the high‐UV treatment, which may have been a major factor protecting underlying photosynthetic tissues. Expand

TLDR
Nine strains of Cannabis sativa L. sativa (marijuana) were grown for research by the University of Mississippi and the cannabinoid content was determined using GLC, and the material was divided into two chemical phenotypes according to cannabinoid content. Expand

TLDR
For the common daytime air temperatures above 30 C for this desert shrub, large shade leaves would have temperatures far in excess of that optimum for photosynthesis for H. emoryi, 29 to 32 C. Expand
The cannabinoid content of Cannabis sativa L grown in England
TLDR
Comparison of the present results with those for the same cannabis varieties grown in different parts of the world shows that all exhibit the same qualitative picture, that is, either THC‐rich or CBD‐rich, since this chemical composition seems independent of environmental conditions. Expand
CULTIVATION, EXTRACTION, AND ANALYSIS OF CANNABIS SATIVA L. *
TLDR
Cannabis sativa L. sutiva was grown on three sites in Mississippi in 1968 and on two sites in 1969 and 1970, and it must be concluded that Cannabis is either a genus composed of more than 100 species or a single species that has not stabilized and that has many variations. Expand
