Does cannabis smell when growing

At what age do cannabis plants start to smell?

The cannabis buds we know and love have a noticeable smell. They stink. I love the smell, some people hate it, and every strain is different.

The answer is that each individual strain and plant is different. But here’s what to keep in mind:

Short Answer: The smell starts at 3-6 weeks old (depending on strain) even in the vegetative stage. But the smell gets much worse after plants start flowering/making buds.

But when growing weed, do the plants start smelling? And how much?

The leaves of a cannabis plant smell a little, but the buds smell a lot. When plants are young they don’t make a lot of smell, but once the plants get big and start growing buds, the smell can be intense.

Terpenes can be found in many other types of plants besides weed. They play an important biological role in attracting beneficial animals to plants or repelling harmful predators.

Why does cannabis smell?

The scientists found that the concentration of VSCs — and, therefore, the associated smell — can be preserved even in older cannabis samples. In the study, the cannabis product was packaged in a plastic jar with a heat-sealed airtight aluminum film, suggesting an association between the airtight packaging and the level of VSCs.

How does age affect cannabis smell?

There are, however, potential health risks to do with cannabis smell. Inhalation and consumption of cannabis are linked to asthma and allergies, which experts speculate may increase as legalization takes off in the US and abroad.
