Skunk Smell - Marijuana?

My neighbors are retning their house to some college students.

I noticed a skunk smell around their house, and assumed that there were some skunks nesting somewhere. But when I happened to go to their door, I found that the smell was coming from inside.

Two things:

1. The smell is now very strong. When we drive by the house, we notice the smell in our car.

2. It smells EXACTLY like skunk, not just a little like skunk.

Do you think it's from pot? From my college days, it was not my experience that pot caused a skunk smell. Are there some varieties that smell like that?

If so, do you think that because it is is so strong, that it indicates a growing operation?

Note that I have no problem with them smoking pot. I did let my neighbor (the landlord -- a friend of mine) know, since if that smell lingers, they'll be screwed.

I think it's from a skunk.

It is likely some high quality cannabis indica (aka - skunkweed) which, indeed, smells exactly and strongly like skunk when being grown. Dead giveaway for the amateur urban farmer.

I bet that motivates your neighbors to share!

It's amazing what I learn on this forum. I have never heard of skunkweed, but from now on when I smell what I think is a polecat pissin' in the wind, I will consider this data. I might even follow my nose and see who in the neighborhood is tokin some "woodspussy" grass.

Maybe, but I think it'd take a blind taste-test of a batch of brownies.

The smell is probably just their dirty socks.

If they're cultivating the noble weed this time of year, it's either in the closet or a greenhouse.

Any homes for rent near you, T-Al?

I didn't expect to learn anything about "dope" on this board. Back in the day, we occasionally tried some wild growing midwest "skunkweed" we assumed was left over from hemp growing days. We thought the nick-name was of recent origin and indicated that you "got skunked" on quality. Now I learn that the hydroponics underground uses the term to denote a high potency brand.
