Boost terpene production

The smell and flavor of marijuana buds mostly depend on the level of terpenes. If you want your buds to both be potent and to smell and taste good, you need to force your marijuana plants to produce more terpenes.

The easiest way to stimulate terpene production is to stress your plants a little bit. There are various plant stressing techniques you can use, from mild to more aggressive. But you need to be careful and start it slow since not all strains respond equally to aggressive techniques.

Wait an extra week before harvesting

Starting to harvest cannabis at the right time is one of the most important conditions for getting high-quality, potent buds. Most of the THC and terpenes that give your plant its taste, flavor, and potency, are produced at the end of the flowering stage. So, when you think that it is the perfect time for harvesting cannabis plants, be patient and wait one more week. This will help you increase the potency of your buds, as well as improve their smell and flavor.

Use less water before the harvesting time

It will force your plants to protect the buds by producing more sticky resin. At this point, you should also stop using nutrients and give your plants only pure water. As a result, you will get even more potent buds with perfect smell and flavor.
