What Makes Cannabis Low-Odor?

In reality, there’s no such thing as an odorless marijuana plant. However, not all cannabis plants grow into stinky skunk blooms that release plumes of odor. Some marijuana strains are more discreet because of their unique terpene profiles that allow them to smell less like weed and more like something else.

The main things to consider when growing stealthy are the amount of smell the plants produce, do they smell like weed, and if they release a pungent odor when being smoked.

Who Are Low-Odor Strains For?

Anyone can grow low-odor weed strains, but there are a few circumstances where odor control is highly recommended:

  • Growing indoors
  • Growing on a budget without an air filter
  • Growing near nosy neighbors
  • Large-scale grow operations
  • Growing near individuals sensitive to strong odors
