When does weed develop "weed" smell?

Thread starter #1
Its my first grow,plants are 6 months old,but when I touch them and I smell my fingers it definetly doesnt smell anything near that deep forest smell you feel when buy from dealer..smell sucks..:volcano-smiley: So wheres the catch? My weeds should be coming close to harvest.
 
Some strains have very low odor as others have a very potent smell to them, its all in the genetics. Antics is correct as well, sometimes weed may smell like grass or hay when first cut, but after a good cure you get a fine cannabis aroma we all know and love.
