The Most Funky Smelling Cannabis Strains, With Smell That Will Knock You Out

Not all strains smell the same. We searched for strains that, when you store a small amount of it in a vacuum type jar (i.e. an eighth ounce) you can still smell it even though it’s stored in a sealed glass container. If you’re in the mood for a stinky cannabis strain, here are some of your best options.

Super Skunk

You know those animals that people avoid at all costs for fear of being branded with their awful spray? Super Skunk is that, only distilled into herb form. Again, Skunk #1 is fairly ubiquitous in breeding circles, but this indica backcross with Afghani genetics is enough to make even Pepé Le Pew blush. To make matters worse, the aftertaste is akin to an IPA that has sat in the sun for a few days. Yum.

Knock out strain

Knock Out is a Sativa dominant strain that is often rated by users as a grade A++ strain. It has dense and sticky buds that are light green in color. They are covered with light orange colored hairs and comprise of numerous crystals. It has an excellent potency that is often rates as 10/10 by medical marijuana users, so its THC level is moderate to high. Knock Out has an extremely pungent odor that is unpleasant, but has a sweet undertone as well. Its taste on the other hand is quite good and is a blend of sweet candy flavors. Most tokers find it so good that they can use it 24/7. It produces a relaxed and euphoric effect on your body making you feel drowsy, heavy and calm. Some users also hallucinate while using it. It has excellent medicinal use and is great for curing insomnia, anxiety and stress. It is perfect for days when you have worked too hard and are unable to sleep with ease. Knock Out is quite safe to use, but has a few side effects such as dry eyes and dry mouth. Some people also become anxious after smoking it.

Dog S**t

More of a dog person? Not for long. There’s nothing like opening a bag of weed and mistaking it for a plastic bag your dog filled on a walk. You rarely see this nowadays — thankfully — as it’s somewhat of a legacy hybrid that draws on strains like Colombian Gold and Afghani, among others.

Blueberry kush strain

Blueberry Kush is a strong indica strain that slowly brings on a heavy body sensation, helping patients forget their pain and relax. Originally from Oregon, this strain is a hybrid of Blueberry and OG Kush, which is evident in its fresh berry aroma with notes of earthy herbalness. This indica is best for evenings or before bed.

Sour Diesel

While it definitely has a pungent skunk smell, Sour Diesel also has a strong diesel aroma (as the name suggests). So it basically smells like a skunky driving a big rig truck. It’s also one of the most powerful strains available.

Grapefruit kush strain

This cannabis strain is a cross of BC Kush and Grapefruit, Grapefruit Kush is one of the classic old-school Afghani Kush strains.  Large buds with a fruity hash taste, produces enjoyable smooth and creamy smoke with a great high.


As the name suggests, the Cheese marijuana strain smells like cheese. But not a fresh cheese you’d put on your spaghetti or like a fresh bag of Goldfish. Cheese smells like one of those cheeses the French put on their crackers and then chug a glass of wine down to wash away the taste.

White Widow Strain

Among the most famous strains worldwide is White Widow, a balanced hybrid first bred in the Netherlands by Green House Seeds. A cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a resin-heavy South Indian indica,  White Widow has blessed every Dutch coffee shop menu since its birth in the 1990s. Its buds are white with crystal resin, warning you of the potent effects to come. A powerful burst of euphoria and energy breaks through immediately, stimulating both conversation and creativity. White Widow’s genetics have given rise to many other legends like White Russian, White Rhino, and Blue Widow. Still, many growers prefer cultivation of the original White Widow, which flowers in about 60 days indoors.

Lemon Skunk

If someone sprayed a lemon scented cleaner on themselves after getting sprayed by a skunk, it would probably smell like Lemon Skunk. The strain is also known for delivering a joyful and energetic high, perfect for combatting stress and depression.

Critical Mass strain

The Critical Mass marijuana strain is a cross between Afghani and Skunk #1, two legendary strains. The Critical Mass marijuana strain was created by Mr. Nice Seed Bank. The Critical Mass marijuana strain is known for enormous buds and yields. The average flowering time for the Critical Mass strain is roughly 8 weeks, but can be as short as 6 weeks depending on the grower. THC levels for the Critical Mass marijuana strain can be as high as 22%, and the high from Critical Mass is intense, causing couchlock in most people.


AK-47 is a marijuana strain with some nice sweetness to go along with its cerebral high. Unfortunately that sweetness can only experienced through taste, because the smell is quite pungent and sour.

Cat piss strain

Cat Piss is a Sativa dominant hybrid that many people pass over due to its name and the pungent stench it exudes. People seem to have extreme views of this strain. Either they love it or they’re not fond of it at all. Those whom attest to it being amongst the best they have ever had love the strain because of the purely cerebral high it produces. It reportedly fills users uplifting feelings of a mellow happiness and a positive creativity. The strain can have a faint body high but with no couchlock; leaving many users feeling energized. Most users recommend having food on hand as Cat Piss induces powerful munchies, despite the unappetizing name.

BLZ Bud strain

The strain is indica dominant with an 80:20 indica/sativa ratio. BLZ Bud is not to be reckoned with and is extremely potent with an amazing 20% THC content. Upon closer inspection you will come to realize the strain is not like any other strain you have medicated with before. It is almost plant-like and dark green in color. The smell is mouth watering, musty and fruity and will keep you coming back for seconds once you are done. The strain is sweet, spicy and sour at the same time. It owes its taste to its heritage and is a cross between Train Wreck, Silver Haze and G-13. As soon as you smoke the strain, you will experience symptoms of couch-lock almost immediately. However, it later changes into a state of euphoria which offers a calming buzz. However, after the high begins to wear off you might also experience slight headaches, but it is nothing to worry about as it can be cured with another whiff of the strain.

White Russian

At one point, White Russian was considered the most potent marijuana strain in the world. And while other more powerful strains have come along, this one still delivers a pretty potent high with a stinky yet also sweet aroma.
