Phylum Proteobacteria, Class Gammaproteobacteria, Order Pseudomonadales, Family Pseudomonadaceae, Genus Pseudomonas,
Pseudomonas cannabina (ex Sutic and Dowson 1959) Gardan et al. 1999.
P. cannabina Gardan et al. 1999 includes Pseudomonas syringae pv. Cannabina.
Gram-negative rods, 1.1-3.0 x 3.0-4.0 µm. Motile by means of one to four polar flagella.
Colonies have a grey colour and are slightly convex on YPGA (Yeast extract Peptone
Glucose Agar). Metabolism is respiratory. Produces a fluorescent pigment on King B
medium. Optimum growth temperature is 28 ºC.
Isolated from plants - Cannabis sativa L.
Pathogenic on Cannabis sativa L. and by inoculation on Phaseolus vulgaris L.
