Does CBD Smell Like Weed-You Will Want To Know


Over a hundred compounds in the marijuana plant, in CBD plant THC is left out of the equation, but we must say that you still will have the same effects as in aches, pains, stress. We will discuss does CBD smell like weed, when you vaporize it to when you use tinctures. Even though CBD still has terpenes and an aromatic smell, THC will always be stronger than a smell. THC releases more aromatic smells that are found in the plant terpenes they still have trichomes that produce resin crystals. You will find out why there is little to no smell to CBD when you cure it the wrong way?

Does CBD Smell Like Weed?

Genetics & Strains

The genetics that comes from the plant are based on if you clone them or from well-known sources of seed banks that produce quality CBD seeds to grow.

There will be different smells depending on the strain of the CBD weed you grow or buy from your house or from quality vendors that produce large amounts of product CBD.

Genetics is the quality that you will be getting at the end of a harvest, the strain is going to be the type of weed you grow that will have the smells that you are looking for. The smell depends on the strain you produce so, if you have a good strain and produce enormous amounts of trichomes on your bud then this can be a high-quality genetic that you have. (You Score)

Most CBD plants don’t produce that many trichomes due to the potency of the THC, because trichomes are little resin sacks that are on top of the but (look like crystals). Then there are terpenes that come from these trichome resin glands from the buds. The flavonoids are strong when you grow them and if you happen to cure them right.

There are so many stores that produce CBD and THC products maybe over a dozen companies have the same intention of making the best products.

But it starts from the plant first, and if you have grown weed before then you should know that this does smell like marijuana and the same goes with CBD it’s the SAME. THC and CBD have trichomes and they produce terpene glands that have smell and taste within them.

Like we said earlier if you happen to sure the buds the right way then you will have no problem getting the smell to come back as the strain should smell, just not as strong as the strain with THC.

Once you harvest your grow you’re ready for a process, called curing, which you must go through it if you want quality weed to smoke, or to extract into oils, and creams, tinctures, and balms, and bath bombs.

This is very critical to get it right, the way cannabidiol is cured after it is harvested. You must hang these plants so that they can dry out. As the process starts with enzymes breaking down the chlorophyll in the buds this will allow them to dry, thus giving them that sting to the nose smell, that’s the chlorophyll.

We will not go into too much detail, but you will leave them for at least 7 days to fully let them dry out with the right temperatures. But can dry out in 4 depending on the climate you live in as well.

After this, they go into jars for another long cure but to ensure you that you will get the best quality, I mean you can use the CBD flower after 4 to 7 days.

But to get the best flavor and smells that you didn’t even know this plant had then we suggest you waiting to see what your plant can produce.

Best to keep them in the jar for about 30 days we say so that they can ripen like fruit. with the exception of you opening it up for the first week once a day. This is called burping the jar so you can release them gases Chlorolphll that fade away when you first hang them 4 to 7 days.

After the first week is done you can do this once a week until the 30 days, but buds can ripen up to 6 months in a mason jar.

If anyone is wondering why and how this correlates with the smell of CBD wonderful smells, it’s simple, curing equals flavors and smells that we desire.

Does CBD Vaporizer Smell

As we mentioned earlier in this article that when CBD oil is broken down in extraction methods that it will lose its smell and flavors.

Depending, on what company it is they will add terpenes to the oil after it is made and ready to get mix up and shipped out or put on shelf life.

The amount of research and the experience that was done and read, the time and effort that was done to support the evidence that we present to you is real.

So, back to vaporizing CBD and the smell that comes from the pen you puff, or MOD, or POD you vape, the vapor that is inhaled is only heated vapor mist particles. And the smell that comes from this can be just simply added terpenes to the equation of ingredients that are contained in a single bottle.

You want to have a good ratio of (VG, and PG) in your vape oils so you have the right consistency, to check and see what’s the best ratio click here.

As we were saying that the CBD you vape can have added smells, or this can have no smell at all, this vape shot from SavageCBD has no taste. This can be added to numerous amounts of things such as others vaping E-liquids, other tinctures, put in tea, drinks, also sublingual (under the tongue).

You may be asking do Tinctures and vaping together? YES, SavageCBD has made it so that you can vape and tincture it the way you choose. This has the right amount of (VG, and PG). These are safe to consume and they are added to a lot of home ingredients. From palm, and coconut, and corn, and soy products.

Even if you add these to other nicotine vapor E-liquids or other CBD oils it’s a 1000mg bottle so you will still get CBD medical properties it holds so that you can use your way. This is tasteless.

Final Thoughts.

Do you ever wonder does CBD have the same effects as THC, because it does not get me high like THC, this is not the case you have the same therapeutic effects, but just without the high involved. The psychoactive effect, to THC other experience, is not the same as far as the HIGH goes.

But, rather the medical properties that are held in this plant are indeed the same effects leaving you in a world of less pain and feeling more in a relaxed-state-of-mind.

Also, blocking receptors in the brain that are connected to our mind and conscience giving us the chance to taste, touch, hear, and most importantly, will be smell and sight.

CB1, CB2 receptors

So, when we are hurt our body sends signals to the receptors and then relaying back to us that we are hurt and we need to do something. So when we ingest CBD this allows the receptors to turn off and on like a light switch so this will block the receptors telling your brain you feel comfortable.

These are the medical properties within the CBD plant itself that give you that self-medicated feeling.

We now know that CBD does have a smell when you grow it, burn it, and when you vape it, to when you ingest it, just because it is called CBD does not mean its still not a marijuana plant. This holds great value if you allow it to and if you do not have problems beyond what you can self-treat.

We are by means no doctor at all, this is based on research and self-experience in the world around CBD and THC, from plants to extractions. We can shed light on the fact CBD is becoming more popular in the everyday life of being discrete around work, friends, family, and fun.

This is great to have anywhere on your person if you do not want people to know that you vape CBD, but you should not be scared it’s legal and won’t show up unless you buy from undelivered sources such as the corner stores, and vendors, without third-party-testers, involved.

We hope that you have enjoyed this article as much as we enjoyed doing the research so that you don’t have to see it anywhere else but here.

  1. Hi Mat, hi Deloris,

    thanks for this well-researched article. I didn’t know that there is a “high-less” alternative to THC, and I had no clue how it would smell. That was a pretty interesting read, even though I currently have no need for the therapeutic effects of both – luckily! It’s still a good thing to know about for the future and/or for helping others looking for relief.


    1. Chris,
      Yes, this is true about others getting what they need to so they can manage their pain when they want by being discrete about it around your neighbor’s friends, and family, and work. These are made to help the unfortunate ones like us, that have to constantly live with pain on their side.
      We will be sure to keep writing about things that people always have questions about.
      Thanks again for sharing your thoughts with us and stopping by.


  2. Hi M&D

    This is so interesting and really important to people with concerns about vaping CBD. Also, what an incredible product. I always think of vaping as being a replacement for smoking but finding this post has opened my eyes.

    I have a friend with Fybromyalgia who suffers from chronic pain and will forward this on to her.

    Many thanks,


    1. Jean,
      We like to thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts about your friend with Fybromyalgia, we hope that she finds the relief that she needs for the chromic pain. The most important thing about vaping is that you can be discrete around those who disagree but if this helps then why not use it.


  3. Hey,

    This is such an interesting article. There is a guy who lives in my building who smokes and grows A LOT of weed. I complain about it to the landlords but they do not do anything about it. So, I am very used to the smell. I might share this article with him and let him know that he can grow CBD that has a lot more health benefits than weed. Plus, you don’t have to mix tobacco with it.

    My brother smokes weed too, so I think I will certainly share this article with him.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.

    All the best,


    1. Tom,

      We do hope that your neighbor and brother do find these articles to be the best and helpful to them when they need a tip or just to learn more if they have not already known it already. I do understand that some do not like the smell but like you said you get used to it but this is not for-everyone.


  4. A really interesting article guys. I don’t vape myself but in terms of discretion particularly given the stigma that can still be associated with CBD, this makes a lot of sense. My sister-in-law regularly used CBD oils to manage pain several years ago so I’m a strong believer in the benefits.

    1. Jason,
      We would like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us even though you do not vape there are many out there that are just starting or quitting vaping. But for the most part, this is safe and for the use of medical benefits that do help with the way one manages life and the way they live until the pain is gone or pain has got to a minimum.


  5. Hey guys, thanks for sharing this post. I’m starting to recognize you guys as experts on everything related to CBD, THC, and weed in general. I always learn so much for you.

    A few days ago, I was doing this research and here I am again. This post has made it clear to me, vaping CBD and smoking THC is not the same when it comes to smell, which is awesome.

    I will surf some more through your site to finally get myself a test dose of CBD and a vape pen as well. Thanks!

    1. Ivan,
      Once again thank you for keeping up with us in this mission to be the one who tells the stories and facts of medical CBD and THC their many fine lines and no grey areas when we present articles.
      Others may try to spice up the words but we just tell it like it is and the benefits that you can reap from such a wonderful plant that has been researched and studies enough for us to provide you’ll with the truth behind this miracle plant.


  6. Thank you for a very well researched article here. I have learnt a lot about CBD and their smell. I did not expect that CBD would have the same or similar smell to marijuana.
    For a moment I was skeptical about this product but now I know that it is still a good product to have.
    I have never used it so I was just looking it up.

    1. Thabo,
      Well, we do hope that you have found our article to be beneficial to your mind and knowledge of this fabulous Sativa plant that has so many medical properties within CBD/and THC. CBD has less the same similar smell but just not as potent to the nose, we have provided scholarly research to get the best from medical doctors that were not paid to do studies and research.
      These are primarily for those who are curious and want to spread the word such as us.
