When it comes to marijuana growing, I considered myself a sort of expert. What is interesting is that when most people buy homegrown marijuana, their biggest concern is the smell of the product. They don’t care too much about the look or the percentage of THC. Most of my customers that come into the grow house just want to sniff the product. A better and more potent smell usually has people thinking the pot is of better quality and a higher THC content. Whether it is the truth or not doesn’t seem to matter. I have worked in my cultivation facility to get better smelling buds. How do you grow pot that smells more potent? Some people like diesel or skunk weed. However, I have found the majority of my customers are looking for a more tropical scent like blueberries, pineapple or even wanting a chocolate scent. So how do I get these strong odors to come about? The main thing when growing pot is nutrients. I need the right nutrients to allow the smells to come forth. Most inexperienced and even experienced growers tend to mess up and stop smells from happening. The main issue is that they are using chemicals on their products. I only use nutrients out of living sources like kale, guano or worm castings. Typically I use Bloom nutrients right in the flowering stages of my buds. This helps lower the nitrogen and increase the potassium levels. Right before the buds are about to flower, so around week 6, I cut back all nutrients. That is because if the bud absorbs too much, it significantly cuts the smell. Interesting right?
