You may want to check your medical marijuana plants for “bud rot” (mold). Bud rot will turn the inside of the flower (buds) a dark grey to black and will be mushy to touch. Most likely, however, it is just the strain you are cultivating. Some terpenes are responsible for very unpleasant odors such as dirty feet, old socks, skunk, and even sweat — so not all bad smells are signs of alarm. As plants mature, the smell tends to increase, so keep checking to see as things develop.
