My plants are budding but they don't smell like weed

    My plants are about a 2 weeks into budding and they don't have any smell at all. There's only a faint plant smell, but nothing skunky. Is that common? The seeds were from some pretty strong smelling stuff. Does anyone know whether or not the plant will start to stink up as the buds get more mature?

    Very common for them not to smell allot this early. Some strains smell stronger than others do. Do not worry your self over this as the smell will develope as they get bigger, but it is all in the genes of the plants as to how strong she will smell.

    Even though they're the same strain they can all start smelling at different times? (they are all also the same age within a week)

    The smell will come in time, some strains really stink others dont. I have got a few in 3rd wk of flowering and when you go into the grow room you are hit by a wall of smell!

    Mine are 2 weeks and if I cut the ventilation (runs 12/7 now).. the stench would drive a skunk out of his own home :lol:

    Some strains just aren't that smelly. All strains will smell of something, of course, but sometimes that odour isn't enough to overpower the chlorophyll while the plant is still growing. As long as your harvest it at the proper time, it should smell much better after being dried and cured, and will be a lovely smoke. And even if it doesn't, that won't mean it'll be an inferior buzz.

    Thats the truth. wait untill harvest and be sure to cure your bud dont be lazy. cure for at least 2 weeks bare min. that dank smell will show up for sure. Even if the strain isnt a very aromic smelling plant:blsmoke:
