Of the many medicinal plants with therapeutic potential, Cannabis sativa is, by far, the most promising in the near future for large scale utilization. However, the inherent chemical variability of plant based medicines must be addressed, before cannabis can be incorporated into modern medical practices. This chemical variability can only be controlled and potentially optimized if the underlying causes of the production of therapeutic compounds in cannabis is adequately understood. Many of the medically useful compounds produced by plants are the result of the plant stress response. Although not completely clear, there is a significant body of evidence suggesting a similar role for cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are implicating in both, biotic and abiotic stresses, including thermal, nutrient, and water stress, photoradiation, as well as bacterial and fungal pathogens. This chapter will explore the possible ecological roles of cannabinoids in cannabis and the potential utilization of these roles via biotic or abiotic elicitors.
