do weed seeds 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.

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.

At what age do cannabis plants start to smell?

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

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

Many novice growers wonder when the weed smell can be expected during cultivation. Of course, the more plants you grow, the more fragrance they will emit. Here is an overview of what you can expect during the different phases of the weed growing process:

Keep an eye of the humidity and temperature levels of your growing room. The higher the levels of humidity, the greater the odour. Air must be circulated in the growing room to reduce the smell, as well as to reduce the likelihood of mould and viruses that thrive in stagnant conditions.

Which strains are low in odour?

Weed odour can be a considerable problem for home growers, especially if they live in a country where the cultivation of cannabis is illegal. When the plants start to bloom, the weed odour increases and neighbours start to smell it with often unfortunate consequences. The police are called and they are at the door in no time. This is annoying for the grower, but, in fairness, unwanted weed odour is pretty anti-social for the neighbours. How can you neutralize weed odour? There are several solutions. The best known is a carbon filter. They come in two forms: large carbon filters for the weed growing room and very small active carbon filters for joints. These are designed to make smoking less damaging for your lungs and to reduce odour during smoking.

Don’t forget to regularly clean and maintain the filters if you want to successfully reduce the odour in your growing room.

Some types of plastic storage boxes are also super useful for storing small amounts of weed. Just make sure the lids seal properly.

The animals help law enforcement by detecting the presence of illegal substances like ice, ecstasy, speed, cocaine and heroin. An indication from a sniffer dog can be enough for police to search you for drugs. (An indication is when a dog signals to its handler – by sitting down, usually – that it smells something.)

Most sniffer dogs can be trained to pick up the smell of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, opiates, ecstasy and LSD.

What can drug dogs actually smell?

Most sniffer dogs can be trained to pick up the smell of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, opiates, ecstasy and LSD.

The problem is, the dogs are exceptionally sensitive to the scent of drugs, so much so, they are able to pick up minute traces of residual drugs, which could indicate any number of scenarios – perhaps previous use of drugs by a person, or even just that someone has touched drugs, or drug equipment, or a hand of another …
