Marijuana is the dried leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant. Cannabis has psychoactive and medicinal properties because of its chemical makeup. Marijuana can be rolled up in a handmade cigarette (a joint), in a cigar, or in a pipe (a bong). It can be used for pain relief, to treat anxiety, or for recreation. In many states, the sale and use of marijuana without a prescription is still illegal. You can usually tell if someone has been smoking marijuana by detecting the scent of piney, slightly skunky grass that smoked cannabis leaves behind. But figuring out for sure if what you’re smelling is weed can be a little difficult if you aren’t attuned to the scent.
Various strains of marijuana can smell different from each other, making it even more complicated. This article will cover what marijuana smells like in different stages of its use and consumption, as well as some differences between strains. The strongest factor in the way marijuana smells is the age of the cannabis plant when it’s harvested. Cannabis that’s harvested earlier in its life cycles has a milder, less skunky scent. Cannabis that grows older before it’s picked and dried will have a stronger odor. Organic compounds called terpenes are found in all plants, including cannabis. Myrcene (mango), pinene (pine), and limonene (lemon) are terpenes found in some strains of cannabis. For example, cannabis strains with pinene will smell more like pine. Marijuana plants smell similar during the growing process and when they’re harvested and dried. They give off a slightly weedy, piney “skunk” scent that gets stronger as the plant grows older. When cannabis flowers and blooms, the scent becomes powerful. For decades, botanists and marijuana connoisseurs claimed that indica and sativa are different species with distinctly different effects on the body. Indica strain smells more acrid, while sativa smells more spicy or sweet. But it would appear, at least to some experts, that there’s no way to smell the difference between indica and sativa definitively. Part of the reason is that there’s a lot of crossbreeding between these two particular strains. However, one small study did find that participants who had purchased weed within the prior several months were able to smell the difference between several different strains of marijuana. Marijuana consumers describe the scent of the plant as earthy, herbal, and woody. Sometimes the plant scent carries notes of lemon, apple, diesel, or plum. Dried marijuana smells a lot stronger than some other dried plants. When you’re smoking marijuana, the natural scent of the cannabis scent is amplified by the smoke it creates. Fire, smoke itself, ash, and the smell of rolling paper add additional layers to the scent. When a person is smoking cannabis, notes of lemongrass, pine, fire, and wood may stand out. The distinct “skunk” smell of marijuana is often reported.
When it comes to growing cannabis, there are lots of things that affect the total experience. Although the “potency” is definitely important, the smell and taste of buds also change how buds make you feel. Sometimes you smell a strain of cannabis and your brain yells,”Yes!” There’s something about sweet-tasting cannabis that is just special and unique, and often these buds come with unique effects that you may not get from other buds! It’s actually pretty simple, but simple doesn’t always mean easy!
Strain is the #1 thing you must pay attention to if you want to grow cannabis that actually smells sugary! See examples of some popular sweet-smelling strains! There are many strains that smell fruity or sweet, but if you are growing a strain that naturally smells skunky, like diesel, etc, there’s not necessarily a whole lot you can do during the growing process (besides using specialized supplements) to make the buds smell differently than their genes intend. The smell of your buds is heavily dependent on strain!
