Examples of Low Odor Cannabis Strains
If you’re growing for yourself, you might prefer to grow cannabis strains that are particularly known for having a relatively mild or weak smell. The truth is that basically, all cannabis plants will stink a little by the time you get to harvest, but some strains are worse than others.

Low Odor Cannabis Strains
Low-odor strains give you a chance to grow a couple of plants undetected by nosy neighbors. And if you have a big operation, these low-smell genetics, coupled with carbon filters, will make your grow as discreet as possible. Fortunately, the best odorless marijuana has the same high quality and potency as other, much stinkier varieties.

Why Do Most Weed Strains Stink But Others Don’t?
The characteristic smell of marijuana is due to its terpenes. Some weed strains produce more of them, while others produce less. These organic molecules aren’t related to THC, meaning they don’t make you high, but strangely enough, they do modify the effects of marijuana; easing paranoia, for example, or enhancing euphoria, or making you either clear-headed or more stoned. So, while you’re probably right in choosing your bud by its smell, this doesn’t mean that weed without a strong smell has effects that are weak or bland. The main thing is the cannabinoid profile of a strain, so low-odor cannabis can still be very potent, and its high rich and nuanced.
Does Low-Odor Mean No Smell At All?
To be honest, completely scentless marijuana doesn’t exist. However, some varieties produce very low levels of terpenes, especially during vegetative growth, so you can keep a small plant or two in a grow tent or even on your windowsill with no one being the wiser. When the flowering stage begins, the smell of these ‘odorless’ weed varieties can gradually get stronger or can come and go in waves. However, this is nothing that can’t be remedied simply by airing out the room or using some household deodorants. The aroma is also weak enough to be mistaken by a casual visitor for something innocuous like houseplants, flowers, fruit, or some other kitchen smells.
What Type Of Grower Can Benefit From Low-Odor Strains?
Of course, the main reason to breed low-odor marijuana strains is that they allow for discreet cultivation, be it indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. By choosing weed that doesn’t smell, amateurs and beginners can get away with growing one single medium-sized plant at home without using a carbon air-scrubber. Alternatively, you can grow several such plants in your garden, even right next to the fence separating you from your neighbors. The same goes for growing guerilla-style – your cannabis plot will be less conspicuous if it’s hidden behind other vegetation and doesn’t smell. In larger grows, with dozens or even hundreds of plants, using low-odor weed strains greatly enhances your odor control measures, allowing cultivators to lessen public nuisance or avoid detection entirely.

Buy low-odor strains for a great opportunity to grow weed discreetly – they don’t have that unmistakable strong and penetrating smell that most other marijuana varieties produce. However, mild smell doesn’t mean mild effects, so be careful – this weed is very potent.
