But certain terpenes are much more prevalent in the plant than others. Different terpenes give off different odors, which is why cannabis strains can smell differently. But two different strains with a similar terpene profile will smell alike. Many terpenes can smell like thiols, thus creating a skunky aroma.
While it’s not exactly a desirable trait – no one is spritzing themselves with the Eau De Anal Glands before a hot date – a strain that smells rather skunky may be attractive, especially if you want to get high: the stronger the skunk smell, the more potent the strain. In pot lingo, “skunk” typically means “very potent ganja.” Skunk #1 is one of these such strains. It is an indica-leaning hybrid that has been popular since the late 1970s. The smell it gives off – not surprisingly – is very skunky, but it may also possess hints of jasmine, fruit, and a woody essence. It’s a potent strain that medicinally is used for nausea, glaucoma, asthma, auto immune disorders, pain, and anorexia. Recreationally, Skunk #1 is used to produce a relaxed, meditative, and energetic high. Marijuana will always smell a bit like skunk, but some strains are certainly more pungent than others. Some people care about this because they don’t like the smell of skunk (or the taste) and others care about it because of discretion – with skunk odor so synonymous with weed, it’s not difficult for your neighbors to figure out what you’re doing behind closed doors. Some of the particular skunky strains include Golden Ticket (smells like lemon-fresh skunk) and Death Star (offers a pungent, earthy aroma – the strain is probably a Star Wars fan).
If you want more discretion, consider something subtler. You may also want to consider less pungent strains if you’re a grower and prefer to keep that under wraps. Some of the better smelling smokes include Lemon Haze (it a citrus scent and a slow creeping high), Alpha Blue (a descendent of Blue Dream – offers hints of blueberry), Orange Bud (smells more of clove and spice than citrus fruit), Kali Mist (a strain people tend to love or hate – can elicit paranoia in those who are prone), and Northern Lights (highly sedative and one of the better tasting strains). Yes, marijuana smells like skunk and people who smell “skunk” will usually assume someone nearby is lighting a joint. Even the word “skunkweed” applies to things other than cannabis. According to Merriam Webster , it may apply to a variety of offensive smelling herbs including skunk cabbage (a low growing plant that grows in the wetter areas of the eastern United States – the leaves smell of skunk when they sustain damage); Gilia Squarrosa (a Californian annual that is also called “stinkweed”); Rocky Mountain Sticky-Leaved Herb (probably not the reason Denver smells like skunk); and Joe-Pye Weed (a perennial that grows in the eastern and northern regions of North America – it is large, growing up to seven feet tall and four feet wide). Some people also claim that body odor smells like cannabis in the people who smoke it. If so, they need Secret – strong enough for a man, but PH-balanced for a weeder. How To Get The Biggest Yields With Autoflowering Cannabis. The top 5 highest yielding RQS autoflowering strains of 2020. Autoflowers have finally earned the respect they deserve. More importantly, they have earned a place in your grow room. With our guide to achieving maximum yields, you will crop the biggest harvest possible from your autoflowers! Autoflowers grow blazingly fast and don’t rely on light hours to enter bloom. As they make growing weed a lot more convenient, autoflowering strains have become very popular as more high-quality strains appear on the market. There are several things growers can do to encourage bigger yields from their autoflowers. Autoflowering cannabis will race from seedling to stash in a quick 60–90 days. When autos are stressed too much or their growth is otherwise slowed, they will still bloom at the same time, and your yields will suffer. To max out yield, you should sow seeds directly into their final containers. Alternatively, you can germinate them using the paper towel method (or whatever your preferred germination method may be) and then put them straight into large pots. The bigger the pot, the more the roots will develop and the bigger your plant will be. If you constrain it in a pot that’s too small, your plant's development and production will be reduced. It is recommended that you use 15–20-litre pots to maximise results without overwhelming your plants.
A pot that is too big will be a waste of substrate and fertiliser. A healthy and strong root system means healthy plants with great yields. Consider “smart pots”, like the RQS fabric pot, to give you an advantage in this domain.
With their ability to prevent plants from becoming root bound, fabric pots are better for overall development.
