When you get a cannabis virus, it enters your plant through a wound regardless if it is on the stems or leaves. Once the cannabis plants are infected with a virus, its cells will multiply the virus and make their way through the plant via their fluid distribution system eventually killing the plant.
Cannabis viruses can be spread by:
- Unclean tools
Transmission by aphids and whiteflies is the worst type of a cannabis virus out of the bunch. Plant symptoms of a cannabis virus are sickly growth, spots on leaves then the stems of the plant will begin yellowing in color and result in a low yield from the plants.
A virus can completely take over a cannabis plant within a few days and once it is infected there is little you can do. Cleanliness is the best prevention and by using fresh, sterile growing mediums.
By not reusing old growing mediums, it will help prevent cannabis virus issues since there are no chemical sprays that are effective against viruses.
