Hemp vs Cannabis odour control

Hemp Crops

Known as a distant cousin, yet with a scent, almost exactly similar to marijuana, Hemp plant and seed growth produces an odour that you can become liable for and therefore should take measures to control. Described as redolent, perfumed, and highly fragrant, hemp crops are extremely odorous, regardless of the variety, as each crop from Sour Diesel to Skywalker, has its profile of over 200 terpenes that increase throughout each crop's lifecycle. 

Hemp and Cannabis Plants

Marijuana plants are the same species as hemp plants, the difference between the two is the amount of THC. Marijuana plants contain 0.3 percent of THC or more and hemp plants contain 0.3 percent of THC or less. Physically, the leaves on a hemp plant are much thinner than on a cannabis plant. Though both plants share a species, the differences in odours can become prominent during the summertime months, as hemp plants mature and flower during 3-4 warm months and produce an extremely pungent and odorous aroma. 

Both Cannabis and Hemp Plants Produce VOCs

VOCs, volatile organic compounds, are the chemical compounds that are released into the air from dry and wet flours that produce the distinct cannabis aroma that can annoy neighbouring businesses and residents alike. 

Growing Cannabis and Hemp Outdoors

When planting outdoors, it is strategic to plan. Reach out to your neighbours before growing and plan your odour control. Cannabusters and consistent communication will help you cultivate your hemp and marijuana crops without complaints. In addition to taking preventative steps to preserve the relationships within your community, when growing outdoors, you can strategically plant other fragrant crops nearby such as lemongrass, lavender or rosemary.
